I have decided to take the plunge this year and try my hand at this phenomena called Nanowrimo. While the intent is to write an entire novel in a month, I do not share that objective. I am starting small, with a 10K word count goal. Hopefully I can overshoot that, but — errr well — NHL playoffs start very soon, and Pillars of Eternity released last week! Those are both HUGE distractions for me. I probably shouldn’t have signed up, but a goal that size should be manageable, regardless of what else is happening in life. Am I right?

As of today, I am almost at 4K words, so it seems that I should be able to manage staying on track – that’s the plan, anyway. How are all of you doing?




New Year’s Revelation

That’s right, I said New Year’s Revelation, not Resolution; intentionally.

I don’t do New Year’s Resolutions.  If I plan to do something, I don’t need an arbitrary date to help me make a commitment, I just go ahead and do it! (at least until I stop :p)  So what, you might ask, is a New Year’s Revelation? Well, I really don’t know, but it sounded cool, and it kind of describes what I have been thinking with respect to gaming of late.  You see, for years I have been a huge fan of MMO’s, but in the last while, I believe that it isn’t actually the MMO that I have enjoyed, but rather, the stories that I have traditionally been able to play inside those MMO’s.  My recent gaming habits would imply that I have already taken this revelation unknowingly to heart.  The games I have been playing lately further confirm this thinking.  Have a look after the jump, and I will share the what and the why!


First, of Many?

I would love to promise myself that this will be the first of many Blog posts.  I guess, if we wait long enough, there may be many.  This is not my first time attempting to “blog”. I have various blogs scattered throughout the internetverse! Regardless, I hope to be more consistent this time around, but no promises, unfortunately. 🙂 So let’s get started with something very simple!

Here are the games that I am playing, as of the writing of this “first post”.

Star Wars The Old Republic


Novare Coast, a Warzone.

Guild Wars 2

Guild Wars 2 - Humans

A very unique MMO implementation

Here are the games that I am following (the top ones, anyway) as of this “first post”.


I love this image!


I am keenly interested in “The Foundry”

So here’s to a new start!
