TIMM Tag of the Week, Vol 18

Yes, I missed last week, and I'm sorry about that. for those of you who noticed, this week is going to be a two-post double-hitter, but I'm back-dating the post so all the numbers make sense and the posts are in the right order. Seems a strange thing to do, but you're going to have to trust me on this one. You can find Vol 19 here.

Tag: chapters

This is a special tag, because it's populated by mostly prose and hardly any poetry. This tag goes on all pieces that have multiple entries to them, and few of my poems warrant it.

Featured Pieces:
"Fortress Race: Part 6 (Sakura POV)," Monday, February 3, 2014
This piece is not special in and of itself, but is special for what it does for me. When I find myself struggling the figure out what happens next in Fortress Race, my primary novel-in-progress, I have discovered that switching to another character's viewpoint, discovering and plotting out their motivations and actions, can lead me past. This is one such piece.

"Choose Your Own: D.I.O. Ch 0," Friday, March 2, 2012
This is only one of my choose-your-own-adventure style stories, and only the most recent. I regularly try to reinvent them to take advantage of the Addventure-style formatting available on Protagonize, and to draw in more readers, but they invariably fail.

"Bands, Part 1," Thursday, August 18, 2005
This is the first chapter of my first serious attempt at writing a novel, and also my first written record of one of my serialized dreams.
