Hello! I'm Tom. I designed a game called Gunpoint, about rewiring things and punching people, and now I'm working on a new one called Heat Signature, about sneaking aboard randomly generated spaceships. Here's some more info on all the games I've worked on, here's the podcast I do, here are the videos I make on YouTube, here are some of the articles I wrote for PC Gamer, and here are two short stories I wrote for the Machine of Death collections.
I wrote the chapter plan for my National Novel Writing Month novel tonight, and in two minutes it’ll be November and I’ll write the first sentence. Then I’ll pass out because I’m really tired.
I’ve decided I will post it online, but not here. It’ll be to an unlinked page on this site, which won’t get indexed by Google, but absolutely anyone who’d like to read it should e-mail me or comment here (and fill in the e-mail field – it won’t be published) and I’ll send them the URL. In other words, it’s not secret but it’s not public either. The first chapter will hopefully go up two nights from now. I’ll upload it chapter by chapter I think.
Mr Dan: Damn, i was hoping you'd forgotten about this which would allow me to forget about it without feeling guilty.
P.S Send me a link.
Alex: I'm also giving it a crack, although my current word count is 0. It's all in the planning.
Link me up, Tom. Could I set you as a Writing Buddy too, so we can fret about each other's wordcounts?
Inflatable Moron: Mmm..Crispy, choclately wordy goodness....A Novel By Tom Francis? Gimme gimme gimme...(p.s. i'll sit here and spam until you do)
Richard: Battling away with mine too. Just hit 6,000 words. Feels good.
Mr Dan: I've only wrote 2,000 words so far. I'm never going to finish, although i've barely even started.
