Made some progress with B&W last night. I'm TERRIBLE at the time trial - can't even stay on the bloody track! Still, the important thing is helping Vivienne - and I did get a nifty new crossbow.

I've been compiling a wish list for the remake of FF8 - if it ever materialises.

Things to keep
- story (I know there are HUGE plot holes in it but that's part of its charm)
- drawing and junctioning systems

Things to lose
- random battles, although I think they'd go anyway
- other than that, I can't think of anything I'd ditch

Things to add
- proper camping, like FFXV
- drawing from environment, like FFXV
- clothes for different weather conditions - surely we can do this, now?!
- a specialism for each character, eg, Irvine - fishing; Squall - cooking

Hopefully Square Enix will pick up on this!

I've begun working my way through DOAICS, chapter-by-chapter, to update my plot matrix. Some of my initial planning is sooo far out! When I've captured the 'as is', I'll work out what I want to add/lose for the rewrite. Feels like progress is being made!

Also making a little progress at work. I really hate days when I have to find stuff to do, but the new project application process still needs work, so there's that.

And that's all for now. Toodles, DW!

 I'm currently writing the character sheets I didn't bother with when I was prepping for DOAIS but which I have felt the need for since doing the flash pieces. It's amazing what you learn about characters!

Work is ticking along. Looking forward to the CRM meeting today - they're usually interesting, and I feel a sense of 'YAY!!!' whenever we shuffle half a step further along with some element. It has to be said that there is quite often an accompanying sense of 'NOO-OO-OO!!!' when someone tries to introduce something new to the mix.

Our room at the Angel, Cardiff is booked. Had a minor panic when I realised I'd booked the train tickets BEFORE securing the room - and without being sure I could change them. But it's all fine. I also bought a Visitor Card that gives you discounts on all sorts of goodies around Cardiff - then realised it's only valid for a month. So, I'll have to buy another one nearer the time - doh!

OK, time to get this day started properly. Toodles.
