Updated Riven Gloom's Intro · 1:56am
So overall this is a small update, but I'm mostly just letting you all know that I'm still alive...
I know I've put Riven Gloom on hiatus for a while now, but with my failure to come through on a story for this years EFNW Scribblefest, I decided that maybe it'd be a better time to start taking the time to work through it again, editing out unnecessary parts/conversations, adding left out tidbits, etc. Now that my laptop is back from the shop, I'm even considering picking up on writing chapter 6 again now.
To be perfectly honest, I've been going through a lot lately and I feel like it's just getting started (I won't bother anyone with the details), but with that in mind to make it clear I'm not going to make any promises that anything decent will be uploaded anytime soon, but for now, I'm taking the story off of the hiatus label and back into a work in progress.
As anybody who has read it may already know, Riven Gloom's intro has especially been needing some work for some time now, and it's long overdo that I got it done. I think it feels a lot less like a history lecture now, haha. I may even resubmit it to a few groups to get a bit of feedback on the direction it's going in for now, and heck, if you're reading this here, please take a look when you've got some time. I could really use someone to take a look and tell me if it's now too terse, or still dragging on too long.
Another note: I would love some feedback on the concept of changing up the main character's name and revamp her appearance a bit (You ever find one of those badly written oc characters that happens to look almost exactly the same as yours? Well imagine that that character also ended up having exact same name as yours. Yup, that actually has happened to me now. Yeah, just sort of killed her whole design for me). Anyways, if you actually read this far, tell me what you think!
