Choose your own adventure

This day started for me at 8:30 with cleaning up Tisha’s hairballs, washing a batch of embarrassingly long-standing dirty dishes, and drawing out an idea I came up with last night:

2006 Dec 7 - Quest wheel - color

(Click to enlarge.)

Hand-inked, scanned, colored in Photoshop.

I’d really like to make this into an actual spinny thing, with the sword of destiny affixed to the center of the circle, spinnable to land on any of the sections and provide a quest for the day.

And yes, Wei-Ling, I am so going to get a tablet!!

  1. I like this. But where’s the “take a nap” option? Maybe it’s under “work smarter and harder” or “seek truth”.

    • I decided against including indulgences on either the quest wheel or the “features not included” section, because they could take over way too easily. Besides naps, I also omitted “eat chocolate.” The ones I put on the not-included list were vices that are serious life-management issues for me, like shopping (which speaks to particular desires and insecurities, as well as ruins my budget), and internet browsing (biggest time-waster ever invented, as far as I’m concerned).

      I’m glad you liked it though. 🙂

    • Oh but yes, you’re right; nap-taking could easily fall under either truth-seeking or working smarter and harder. 🙂 And, possibly, “ignore voices of doubt.”

What do you think?
