It’s been awhile since I last wrote one of these hasn’t it? I know I haven’t been writing much lately, but that’s because I’ve been working on a secret project that I’ll touch up on a little below.
Things have been a little stressful lately. I was told that we had to be out of house by certain date last month. Since that was my number 1 priority I stopped doing weekly podcast with Bradley, and Chuck over at Counter Attack Games. I miss talking with them and hopefully I’ll be back soon. The good news is I no longer have to move, but since all of this has happened I really want to now because I don’t trust the landlord.
Every summer is always busy for my family. My wife’s birthday is in June, my oldest child’s is in July, and mine is in August. Planning birthdays is usually the way we spend our time, but that’s not the reason why I haven’t been writing here. I’m working on a book. I just started writing the first chapter after making a bunch of notes and setting up the lore of the world that I’m building. I’m naming characters, places, giving everyone a backstory, and trying my best not to fuck it all up. I’m my own worst critic and I usually think whatever I come up with is really bad while everyone says it’s really good.
I’m not prepared to go into details on my book, but I’m working really hard on it and I’m really excited to be writing like that again. My dream has always been to publish a book and I plan on making it a reality.
On the gaming side of things I’m currently playing through The Witcher 3 for 5th time. I’m in love with this game all over again and I’m playing through new game plus for the first time on the death march difficulty. I’m really enjoying it and I’ve got about 16 hours in my new playthrough. I’m about halfway through the Bloody Baron quest.
I’m also playing The Elder Scrolls Legends because I love card games and I think this is the best one to play right now. It’s balanced, with the exception of two cards, and it’s not pay to win at all. I love it and I can’t stop playing it. I also got my wife into Skyrim and taught her how to mod it. I helped her download about 40 mods last night and watched her play a little before I went back to The Witcher 3.
I’m reading through Andrzej Sapkowski’s Witcher series. I finished The Last Wish and I’m about halfway through Sword of Destiny. This dude is a douche, but he’s one hell of a writer and I love his work. I plan on reading through all of the Witcher books and then I’m going to move on to the Metro books or that Stellaris e-book that I’ve been putting off for weeks now.
And I think that’s everything. I’m excited to be writing again and I haven’t done much gaming and since I don’t really post much non gaming content here that’s why I haven’t been writing :).
What have you been up to?
