Business Tasks, and Story
I'm back at work today, and after some catching up on messages, my first task was contract review.
Let me tell you, reviewing contracts is not fun. It's like reading a EULA, sending edits back to the other party, they send an update, and now you have to read that dry, legalese document again for changes.
I decided to make my life easier by firing up my version control software to compare the old and new documents. That helped a bit, though it required some messing around to get line breaks and other unimportant diffs ignored/rectified.
Finally, I was able to isolate the text changes, and thankfully, they appear to be an improvement. But man, I can totally see why lawyers get big bucks for that. Reading and understanding those docs is dry work, and paying someone to be responsible for any mess-ups is probably worth it.
Once that was out of the way, I turned to story writing. My last trip into town produced some good ideas, and I spent most of my afternoon transcribing my notes into digital documents. I did quite a bit of rewriting and updating of background info and a new encounter, and started calling out opportunities for clues and side quests.
So far, it's looking like a good, solid encounter, so I'm excited to see where it goes!
That's all for today. I'll see you tomorrow!
