I am sure I'll never regret this.
I need to make dinner and finish a bit of contract work, but I'll return. I'm in it now. Also --)
26: Jesus wept, it's a grenade!
27: Hot potato!
((At least, I'd run if a squad-mate said that in a game. I know the tricks.))
56: Arrrg! There be a grenade on deck, matey, arrrgh.
((Last one for the evening, since I'm exhausted from hitting today's deadlines. But this is good fun! The lines are dreadful, sure, but I'm learning a hell of a lot. Keep liking and retweeting. I want to see how absurd this becomes.)
(My Twitter has become a blast zone, that's for sure. 100 already -- and 50 to go, as of the writing! If nothing else, let this prove the importance of getting the words down. Esp if they're bad -- cause you'll know they're bad, and how to do better in future.)
For now, it's lunch and other work.
Keep up with those likes, RTs, Follows, etc -- you ain't got me beat yet, world. 50 more? EZ PZ. Watch--)
101: It's gonna blow up!
Here's the link to the rest of the thread: ))
((Going to try re-threadding this, so it's easier to see that original post. If you want to go back to 119, here's that link: )
((One day. One happy, happy day. But I'm in it now, God knows.))
And three, two, one... there it is.
(Still ain't got me beat!
That's all for this evening -- I must eat and finish some more work. Everyone, this is wild. I'll carry it as far as I can. I'll hope to make you proud. Follow along for more!)
(Right, 225 down, 755 to go at the time of writing. This'll be a marathon not a sprint, or else I'll die. Expect 50 barks a day, from now til The End. I may also impose a cap, because I'd be stupid not to -- but 755 at least I'll do.)
Violets are blue,
There's a grenade
Right behind you!
Who marched in circles around the quad;
And on this fateful parade,
Someone threw a grenade!
So from here let's quickly trod!
((That does it for today's round! Be sure to tune in next time.))
(I'm back on the business! 50 a day, and we're 25 down. Should only be 500~ more by today's end. Will announce the cap and some other fun plans later today as well -- but for now, it's back to work!)
(That's 300 barks out of 829 down!
In the event this blows up again, I'll set a cap now: I'll write up to 1003 grenade barks, if I get as many likes.
I hope you're all enjoying the fun!)
I'll also put up a blog post at the 500 mark, sharing some of the lessons I've gathered thus far.
I'm off for today though. See you all on the other side!)
I passed a grenade that wasn't there.
But here it is, right now today --
Oh I wish, I wish it'd go away!
Dost see not the grenade, from which we must hide?
(We're nearing the current halfway mark! Again, it's 1 Like for 1 grenade bark, up to 1003 -- we're just over 850 now. I hope we can blow it up louder!
I hope you're all enjoying it as much as I am. More coming soon!)
Strike that. Reverse it.
(And with that, we cross the current halfway mark! Only 874 Likes right now. I'm willing to go up to 1003 if we can get there.
To mark 500 as well, I'll write a special blog post -- expect it early next week. See you then!)
(End of today, we'll have 500! I'll work on the blog post. Hopefully it'll be ready to go by then!)
And starting today, you'll also find a weekly blog! I'll post every Monday about an aspect of game writing and narrative design. See you there!))
(That's the morning's batch done! Time again to review my notes for class and continue on with other projects. Once I've developed them more and finished this mad exercise, I'll share them with you all.
See you tonight for 550!)
(That does it for another day. A pleasure again!
I'm still hopeful we can get this to 1003. Spread the word of this absurd grenade-centric sideshow and I'm sure we will!
See you tomorrow for 600💫)
(He's here. He's not going anywhere soon. Get ready.)
(Is this the end of Chuck Grenades? Find out in 626-???? ~ coming soon!
Reflecting on 500 barks: bit.ly/2rqbrWq)
(I mean, I couldn't help it. Well, obviously I could, but. Well.)
(We're up to 900 Likes. Get the word out -- help the dream of 1003!
If you're interested, here's a reflection on writing 500 barks: bit.ly/2rqbrWq
See you tomorrow!)
(We're at 910 Likes now -- 1003 is so near!
If we get there, I have an Idea -- details at 750!
A reflection on writing 500 barks: bit.ly/2rqbrWq )
(We're closing in! When we hit 750 tomorrow, I'll make a few silly promises in the hopes we can push up to 1003.
Til then, you can read about my experience of writing 500 barks: bit.ly/2rqbrWq )
(We're closing in on 1003!
If we make it to that happy sum, I'll write another writing blog -- and I'll record 103 of the best barks. I promise to do my best character voices.
You can Like the original thread here! bit.ly/2jBHVsi)
(We're headed to 800 today! For every Like on the original tweet, I'll write another -- when we get to 1003, I'll release a new blog on writing 1003 barks & I'll record 103! Here's the link: bit.ly/2jBHVsi 💣)
(We're closing in! Keep Liking the original post so we can get to 1003: bit.ly/2jBHVsi
When we get to that happy number, I'll write another blog post on writing 1003 barks. I'll also record 103 lines!
See you then!)
(So close! Once the Likes reach 975, I'll post the next set. The dream is still 1003! Once the dream is real, I'll write another grenade blog and record 103 barks. Keep it up -- we're so near! bit.ly/2jBHVsi )
951: Simon Says -- everybody run from that grenade!
(From everyone else:) Not you, the grenade!
(From the Batman): Oh no... Robin, run!
(From Robin:) What's wrong, Batman?
(From the Batman:) Shirley Temple. Famous child star, now remembered for the adult beverage: made with grenade-ine.
(From Robin:) Holy Periodic Table! Hm... Hydrogen... bomb? Helium... like a blown up balloon? Lith...
(From the Batman:) No, Robin. It's Grenadeium. Evacuate the citizens!
(From the Batman:) You... evil exploder of every-day citizens!
(From Robin:) What's wrong, Batman?
(Batman): It's a grenadium! Pull the pin, toss, and then... Ka-bloom.
(From squadmate Two:) We'll have several dead ones if we don't run!
(Later, from the same squadmate:) TOO SOON!
(From a *that* awful male squadmate you're glad gets exploded:) Well, actually, I think you'll find...
(So ends my list of 1,003 Grenade Barks. For all those who Liked the Tweet to get us here, I bless you in my heart. 💖
I've been asked why 1,003. To me, it's proof there's more. 1,000 is perfect, done; 1,003 means there's more out there. Just keep writing! 💫)
