I'm Going In

My Wife's Gift to You

Marvel Heroes 2015

Yesterday was a do nothing kind of day for me. Lady Ronn had announced that after having a 6-day work week, she was sleeping in. There was the little matter of shuttling the youngest child to Lansing to complete his summer visitation. Both items added up to don't make any noise in the morning and don't plan anything for the afternoon. So I took the day off. I decided to play a game. Which started with The Secret World, then DC Universe Online, Champions Online, Star Wars the Old Republic, Neverwinter, and even a brief stint in Sims 3. None of it was doing anything for me. I'm not a good gamer. I don't have a lot of patience for games. All throughout, however, I was downloading Marvel Heroes 2015... it took FOREVER... not sure why. Anyway, once it did download and Denis and I did start playing; it was pretty good. Simple. Straight forward. Very DIablo-esc. A little frantic. Okay, it's a lot frantic and often difficult to tell where you are and what you're targeti

Time To Get Back At It

The time has come to see what has been written, to determine what can be used and what must be cut. I have printed out the 2014 NaNoWriMo project and my intention is to read it, give it an edit, and then continue it to a proper conclusion.   I've been letting my creative juices flow in very unproductive ways of late. Between doing that and all the projects I've got going around the house, pushing writing to the back burner, or more truthfully, taking it off the stove, has been very easy. I feel like it's time to use all my creative energies in a more productive way. It's time to get back to the writing. Anyway, here’s what a months worth of writing looks like. 52,000 words spread over 189 pages. Time to see what’s actually on those pages and if there is a story hidden within them.

The Time Has Come

The time has come to see what has been written, to determine what can be used and what must be cut. I have printed out the 2014 NaNoWriMo project and my intention is to read it, give it an edit, and then continue it to a proper conclusion. I decided that this was something I had to do. I've been getting back into the table top roleplaying hobby, and just like before, it ends up being a lot of wasted time building worlds that know one will ever see. And just like last time, I've come to the conclusion that if I'm going to be outlaying this much creative juice on anything... probably it should be my writing. So, while I'm not stepping away from the table with the finality that I did last time, I'm also not going to allow myself to wander aimlessly down those roads. I will game and run games because I enjoy that sort of thing, but I will direct my world building and map drawing into my fiction. Anyway, here's what a months worth of writing looks like. 52,000 words
