Uhh... is this thing on?


Well this episode marks the end of the current story for 'h2g2: Tales of a Newbie'. I hope you liked it. It was originally going to be six episodes, but it kind of ran away on me. That was a nice thing. You often hear people say that, when they're writing, the character takes on a life of its own. I always thought I knew what that meant. Now I REALLY know. smiley - smiley

The thing is... this was all I wanted to do with the series: map out the life of a newbie (or 'Anubi', as our hero was coined) starting out at this wholly remarkable site. In essence I've done what I set out to do, which brings me to the point of all this rambling.

I don't know what to do next.

Or more to the point: I don't mind what I do next. Every time I think I've come to a decision, I think of arguments for doing something else. This is what I see as my options:

  • a) Continue 'Newbie'
  • b) Go back to 'h2g2life'.
  • c) Do something new.
  • d) Stop

So I'm going to leave it up to you guys ('guys' being non gender specific). Let me know what you'd like to see. I'll go off for a month or so and start thinking up ideas for whatever the majority goes with (except for 'd' of course, then I just put up my feet and call it a day. smiley - smiley

So... there you go. Vote away.

Apologies for the indecision.
