I don't think I do enough fun stuff here. I think it is about time I start throwing out sneak peaks, competitions and stuff (if I can think of any possible competitions...). If for no other reason than to assure people I'm not dead.
This is one of the quietest weekends I've had in the last year or so, as everything winds towards the Christmas holidays. I doubt it will last, so my plan is to buckle down and get some writing done.
I also haven't forgotten about bringing SDY here; honestly, the reason I'm hesitant is that the story is relatively old, and doesn't reflect the current quality of my writing. Not to mention the fact it is unfinished and I don't plan to finish it anytime soon. Given it's the naughtiest story I have, it would also be the first impression for many new prospective readers - so the first thing that people would see would be my less-impressive chapters of an unfinished novel. I dunno...
Starting to consider getting a few commissions; although I haven't decided for sure. I also don't know exactly which artist/s I'd like to ask. I believe
would suit my characters best, but I thought I'd leave this out here to see what people recommend. After all, aforementioned artist is being swamped with commissions, and the things I want to commission are a tad more complex than the usual.
I want to have something for you guys before Christmas; I doubt I'll be finished Astray within the next 9 days, so it'll be something else. Here's hoping! Don't hold me to that!
Oh, I'm also now a "proud" Linux "gamer." Beta tester for Steam on Linux. Stop laughing; it's actually freakin' excellent. Linux honestly is just a better OS for gaming, much more lightweight and robust. The games that have been ported to it are working shockingly well, despite graphics card manufacturers occasionally being dicks to the Unix-like community. I'm switching workspaces and alt-tabbing out of full-screen 3D games in ways that'd force my Windows into a crawl or a crash on the same hardware, but it all works perfectly and without any delays here.
Still quite a ways behind Windows, and even Mac, in terms of the amount of games on offer, but things are going to get real interesting, real soon. Valve obviously is not content with the status quo. Choice is always good, so... fantastic.
Speaking of good news... I've been out of the loop with WoW for some time, and only now did I realize what the top guilds are. The old guard have come full circle. Method, Blood Legion, Vodka and DREAM-Paragon. Things are how they should be once more...! BLOOD LEGION! WOO! :D ILLIDAN, REPRESENT! Sigh, to think I wanted to get back into raiding in Pandaland. Thanks, dickhead friend who got me to make my phone an authenticator, which then got Coke'd to death by my neighbor.
Current Projects - Tai's Story related short story + revamping the main story (final edit) - won't be long! Astray ch7 - the end is coming! Remember that, as with Tai's Story, the final chapter is going to be quite large and cover the epilogue as well, so this will hopefully be worth the wait. Soulflower - not forgotten about this one. As with Astray, this is the final chapter; so it takes a little while.
