I’ve been working on writing my book, but its become obvious that I have to take some time to concentrate on finishing it up. August has been really miserable to me overall, and I wasn’t able to achieve what I’d put on my plate. I take all of October off each year, too, and this put September in a bind. I’d have four weeks of content to spout out while trying to catch up.
Instead of trying to do that, I want to focus on editing for the next 60 days, taking all of october and all of september off (and most of august, if we’re honest)
With enough focus, I will be back on the 3rd of November with new articles, hopefully about how cool the book is progressing, and what I am doing to get it published. Its the longest break I’ve taken from writing in the 6ish years I’ve been doing this, so its a little spooky, but its something I knew would be coming up. Editing takes focus and direction, and I’m at the point where I have to sit down and not worry about posts or content.
I’ll still be relaxing, so don’t expect that I won’t have anything up. Facebook will still have some random stuff, much more spur of the moment, quick hits, to stay in touch.
We’re rushing headlong into year 2 of the Coldforged book writing, and I’m going to hopefully tackle here as many things to get ready to have the book printed as possible. I hope we’re in the home stretch here. I’m also going to be pushing through “Completed” content as well when the time comes. Hopefully little of it needs much balance testing! This week we’re going to look at the Children of Jet
Though it been a fairly inconsistent spring and summer, I’ve got even more obligations and vacations planned for the next 4-5 weeks. the NOVA Open is next week, Labor day after that, and Metallica in San Francisco after that. It’ll take time to recover and get back into the groove of things afterward, but I don’t want to rush content (much of it already feels rushed due to annoying time constraints). My next article won’t be until 9/24, though I will be still active on facebook, posting dumb things and gaming content. I’m going to go on a whirlwind of activity and see you all on the other side, hopefully, revitalized and refreshed!!
Each Thursday this year, I focus on a different aspect of the world I’ve created and played D&D in for over 20 years, in the hopes of honing the ideas and cementing enough in place to settle the world in my own mind. This week I’m looking to start fleshing out the history of the continent. This time, its the history of the Kingdom of Drimmak
The First Tuesday of every month, I like to try my hand at creating an interesting character, one that fits a certain archetype or cool concept. This month is a bit late, but I’m gonna tackle an amusing character concept I’ve had floating around in my brain: Dwarven College of Swords bard that uses axes!
