Today is the 160th anniversary of the birth of a man whom I admire and whose books have inspired me and brought me great joy: L. Frank Baum. Happy birthday, Frank.
Today, I am working on a visual novel to submit to the Public Domain Jam 3 on itch.io
. The last time something based off of Oz was submitted for this kind of thing, it was horrible.
This particular game will be based on a short story I wrote about Princess Lanwidere that was turned down for publication in Oziana. Apparently, dealing with a suicidal woman was "too dark." Ah, well. I'm proud of the story, and I think Oz will be well-represented here.
If I have time, I'll do another visual novel for Oz. I have several ideas. Links shall be posted.
