The Road to PyWeek -- Still Working out the Kinks in My Strategy...My second practice run is nearing an end, and I have a completely different problem this time.
I... Never wound up writing any code. I got so wrapped up in the design process that I lost track of everything else in the project.
Lesson Learned: Don't overdesign, it's just as bad as over-engineering!
I'm very glad that I decided to do these practice runs. This would have been a problem in the compo XD
I think I can call the second game sunk. It's just not going to happen.
Life goes on, though.
I've been finding that more and more:I'm getting caught up in the designs. I need to not design so much XD
I've got a good feeling about the third practice run, though. I think it'll be good to have a fresh start.
My friend has decided that she won't tell me the theme until the start of the next run, which will be at 23:00 UTC (7:00 PM EDT)
I'm thinking that this time I'll just give it some thoughts, maybe scratch down some notes, then just start coding the darned thing.
