How long?

How long does it normally take to write a story game? I've been working on one on and off for about a year. I just want to see how long it took you guy's to finish some of your games.

I'm guessing it's an large game? that seems solid as far as i know (I'm 2-3 weeks and 7 out of a possible 60ish pages in =P)

It's getting pretty bloated from all the options, it's going to take forever, i'm trying to do at least 2 pages a day now.

That is a blistering pace from what I've been told

Unless you are a professional or veteran writer . . .

Yeah, much better than me, I was just staring at my next page, writer's block had me practically drooling on the desk from the lack of progress

It's possible to finish a game?

 

Never seems to happen with mine, I'll be on fire for a week or three and then something comes along and either makes it physically impossible to find time to write or else knocks me out of the zone some other way, and then it's a coinflip whether I'll be able to pick up where I started and continue on or now.

It just happened right now, for instance. Yesterday I was doing great and tonight I'm just too f***ing upset to write a single paragraph. :( I already know I won't have any time to myself this weekend, so that's out, but we'll see how things go tomorrow.

What you people need to do is to plan your game before starting. Trust me, it seems boring but it helps in the long run. As for me, I finish a 30 page story in a single day so yeah...30 pages per day. 30 crap pages per day i mean.

A lot depends on the length of a page of course. I mean, three to five hundred words or so where you forced your players to rape some girl would take a lot longer to write than half a paragraph.
