Brett Talley's Scratch Journal Entry
I admit that when I began this project I was somewhat concerned about the difficulties that were before me. I had never engaged in any sort of programming before, and because of an intense discussion over the ethics of using the Scratch program, we had not had any instruction over how to use the program. Nevertheless, after a dedicated trial and error effort, I was able to figure out the basics of the program, and began to make headway. Soon, I had developed a concept and began to flesh out the details of my game. In no time at all, I had a functional product. I was somewhat surprised at the pride I felt at this point in my journey, and I was very excited about having other people engage what I had created. It did not matter to me that I would never see any tangible benefit from the time I had put into the project. The joy was in its creation.
