Not even the bibliography is safe from editing!
I blame zotero. I fill in all the little boxes and give it all the information it wants and yet it doesn’t do it %100 right. I guess I should be happy that it does most of the work… but fixing little things up can get annoying. For examples citeing for a URL gets fucked up. It needs to be like “author, title, web site, date posted, date accessed, URL”. But instead it’s like: “author, title, website, date posted.” So then I go around fixing up all that stuff.
The one thing about researching ludonarrative dissonance is that every game blogger likes to have their 5 cents about it.
Anyways there’s also a bunch of small things I need to fix that I didn’t know, like making sure they all follow the same style.
In other news, it’s week 12. In 8 days the project and exegesis needs to be handed in, however we don’t get the full 8 days, no, the damn thing needs to get printed.
At first I wanted to get it to the printers by Monday but change of plan and I’ll try and aim for Wednesday. Just so I can get in as many big edits as I can. I want to ask some of my friends, one who is a editor but I don’t want to hassle them.
How I’ve been feeling lately is a mix of stuff. I mean I’m quite happy with myself, everything seems to be coming together. Like when you make a cake, first it’s all over the place but then you add and you mix. It starts off lumpy so you work it some more and then you get a batter.
Everything is like at the batter stage. Once I get it printing that’s like baking it.
I look forward to my exegesis cake.
I want cake now.
On the other side of things, I am very tired. It’s quite draining having to wake up everyday, get dressed, come into uni, do work, head home, tell yourself to do work but instead watch youtube, saying you’ll make up for it tomorrow and go to bed only to repeat the same thing again. A day off will be really nice.
But that won’t happen till after oct because we still have work due the week after we hand in.
Good news I’m not feeling stressed about getting things in. The exegesis won’t be as magical as I want, but that’s my own fault and limitations. Writing has never been my strength. I like the game I made. While the exegesis is off at the printers I plan to pretty up the game a little more. Custom icon maybe, add in some missing art, fix up some ugly parts, ect ect.
Anyways. I should go back and edit this damn bibliography. Also, my coffee has gone cold.
