Today I submitted my revised draft of “Shadow Alchemy”, my scenario for Forgotten Corners of Lovecraft Country vol. 1. I revamped the plot the scenario, streamlining things by taking out a layer of characters, which allowed me to shorten it from about 18,000 words to 13,000. While my target was 10k, I’m still mostly satisfied with how it turned out (save for losing the text of one of the handouts… where the hell is that notebook?!?). I know there are a few places where I was less than economical with my words, so I’m sure Oscar will find ample targets for his editor’s pen.
In other news, yesterday was the birthday of one of my favorite Call of Cthulhu authors, Kevin Ross. Kevin authored some of my favorite CoC books – Kingsport and Innsmouth, as well as great scenarios like “Dust to Dust” and the fantastic modern campaign Our Ladies of Sorrow. Happy Birthday, Kevin!
