For the last and final chapter of Project Succession, I am going to have to start it Monday.

Why? Because I need a tiny break to prepare myself for the end. I still got world-build Alagossia and things of that nature, though that can wait.

I went back to StoryPlotter app to do everything before going back to the second drafting stage once I am done with the final chapter.

So, that is all I have to say.

Will start writing either today or tomorrow

I like how I’ve somehow expanded this story from 76k to 114k just by ensuring all the plot threads and world building is actually in the story. :neutral_face:

Draft six, here we go… :expressionless:

We’re actually in place plot-wise at this point, though, finally. Just gotta actually go over all the scenes themselves.

Oh my gosh, I got rid of the Epilogue.

I don’t like having prologues or epilogues if I can help it, so it was nice.

Btw, giving a respectful nod to The Lion and the Unicorn by Lewis Carroll (you don’t have to know it), I tried my own version:

A Lion and A Unicorn
A lion and a unicorn were crying on a hill.
The horn had lost its unicorn, so sent for Lookwig Bill.
When Bill arrived, he could not find a mane or mighty roar.
So, he played the plums and boiled drums, but it was such a bore.

A hedgehog and a dodo were fighting with a jig.
The mojo had lost its dodo, so sent for Marcie Pig.
When Marcie came, she played a game with pastries and doors.
She freed the tea into the sea as it was such a bore.


It’s so ridiculous XD

Btw, this style of rhyming is such a brain exercise.

And this one, too. This time a nod to my favorite, the Walrus and the Carpenter, and a little reference to The Hunting of the Snark :wink:

“The Gryphon and the Raven went hunting for a Snark,
and during dawn came upon a cave of too much dark.
The Raven flinched and shuddered when he heard the sound
of a tick-tock of the Rabbit’s watch echoing all around.
The Gryphon, who was once a knight, passed his frightened friend,
and set forth into a tunnel with many twists and bends.


There’s so much more of this poem. It was such a brain exercise.

I did a little bit of world-building, but not enough though.

I’m going to have to do more tomorrow. I would read, but the dinner I had would force me to sleep, since I am feeling sleepy.

Nothing else to add.

I did it! I finally made a tribute to “All in the golden afternoon”, the opening poem in Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland :blush:

All in the golden afternoon / So leisurely we glide… is how the original begins.

Two-Thirty Soon
All silver arms of the clocks,
So leisurely they glide.
Not a single student looks upon,
The blackboards filled with lines.
Such cyphers and incomprehensible codes,
Bring headaches to their minds.
But it will be two-thirty and soon,
They can finally rise.

I got it now. I think I got it now.


A lion and a unicorn were crying on a hill.
The horn had lost its unicorn, so sent for Lookwig Bill.
When Bill arrived, he could not find a mane or mighty roar.
He played the plums and boiled drums, but it was such a bore.

A hedgehog and a dodo bird were fighting with a jig.
The mojo lost its dodo, so it sent for Marcie Pig.
When Marcie came, she played a game with pastries, clocks, and doors.
She freed the tea into the sea as it was such a bore.

What’s it for?
