True, but putting the entire thing in audio would have made it really unexciting really fast. Believe me, I've tried it. You have to kinda excuse the fact that Virtue is entering information at times where it would be dangerous to, so I usually ended the logs with something like "it's too dangerous to continue - back to audio".

I would have been much easier had I not decided to go with a PDA format, but since I'm the only person I know who's decided to do it, I've had to make up the rules as I go. I'm trying to eliminate as much of it as I can and compress more information into the logs when he's safe and actually has the chance to - which is something that the first half of the story or so didn't really do. It wasn't until the second half that I decided it was necessary to make the PDA "smarter" and let you know what was going on based off of the external sound it was picking up.

For my next writing, I think I'll probably stick to the standard story format because it was extremely difficult to get the information I wanted out while keeping to the format. But the story is still a work in progress, so hopefully that thought will be far from your mind by the end of the edits.

yeah the format could really strangle your thought processes...

honestly I like the new style, the old entries were far too constricted but my problem is that I just don't see someone wassting their time typing on a PDA while they're injured or wandering through the anomaly-ridden zone where one false step could compress you to a singularity.

I've only re-read the first entry, personally, i would have left it as it was. Though if your targeting an audience with no knowledge of this game or it's background, i guess re-writing it is the way to go.

Yeah, I'm, going to keep the original since it still does have value to it, but so far, re-writing it is the best thing I could have done. I'm currently working on the days surrounding X16 and adding a ton of details and such. I think it will be even better once I'm finished.

A better would to use would have been "editing". I'm not changing the plot at all, just certain elements that didn't fit very well together - plus grammar and spelling as needed. Any major additions/changes I make I'll make note of. I also do have a full backup of the first draft so that it will never be lost (in case I get nostalgic or something ).
