A game by Heather Logas and her friends

An update, an interview

Dear Dreamers,

Still working on it.

I’ve discovered one technique that’s been very helpful.  I’m not sure why this occurred to me, but I bought a nice pad of drawing paper and a quill pen and have created a physical work log.  Every day I work on the project, I write in the log what I’ve worked on and what I need to do next.  In addition to helping me jump back in where I left off (vital when your life is one interruption after another) there is something incredibly satisfying about just writing with the quill pen on the nice paper.  The physicality of it is delightful and soothing to my soul.

I’ve been trying to focus on BYCYE as my primary pursuit in many ways.  I have been putting off most art and craft projects (unless they are short one-session things), not wanting to start anything that might distract me from BYCYE.  Most of my relaxation (when that can happen) is geared towards keeping me in a BYCYE mindset.  I’ve been reading more fiction and playing fewer time-waster games.  Its hard.  I want to finish the game, but I just don’t like working digitally as my main mode of expression.  I think that’s part of the reason bringing in the physical pen and paper as part of the process makes the sailing smoother.

Also, here’s an interview in which I talk a bit about BYCYE, and my journey through life, games and motherhood.  I’ve gotten very positive responses to it so far, which is quite gratifying.

Dream Well,

Heather
