Did I say Tuesday? I meant Wednesday. Okay, I meant Tuesday, but I hated the dozen or so ways I'd written the current part of the script and didn't resolve until literally 3/4 of Monday was over with, so... yeah, that was a problem.
I'm not sure if I'll ever go into specifics regarding what the issue was, but I will vaguely state that it kept going off on tangents. Naturally occurring tangents, but tangents nonetheless. OVERWHELMING TANGENTS. Like, Mecha-Godzilla tangents of doom that also naturally turned into massive exposition and recapping, and not because I was trying to exposit or recap anything, but because that was naturally where the discussion would go after a certain point.
Seriously, it's like I'm trying to write oranges and then these apples show up and I'm all like no get out of here you apples and the apples are like no we're better than oranges but I shoo them out anyway but they keep coming back no matter how many times I tell them I'm trying to write an orange.
...It's possible I rely too heavily on apples an oranges in my metaphors...
Anyway, I figured out why that was happening, which I may elaborate on in a future story commentary. For now, I'll just say that the upcoming story comics are already partially done (beyond the scripting phase), so we're definitely moving forward.
