Some administrative trivia.

Under the circumstances, I feel that it is probably best to switch out to the new Twitter account tonight.  I am not yet formally ending all political commentary, but you can see the end of it from here.  I assume that this site will be transformed into a general gaming/geekery site; I hope to do more creative work. Indeed, I largely have to, because my annual income took a rather severe hit tonight.  Which is a shame and a tooth-grinding frustration, but I will not serve that man.

ZOMG! They have TORG back on Bundle of Holding!

You have, like, a day left to buy it! Well, them: they broke it up into TORG 1 and TORG 2.  At twenty-ish bucks each for both Bundles it’s still a goram steal.

For those who don’t remember: TORG was a RPG that used the convention of ‘alien realities invade our own’ to justify having elves and cyberpunk and dinosaurs and horror and Rocket Rangers and, well, everything else at once.  Mechanics were meh, the setting was awesome.  Perfect reading material, if you’re me.

Need opinions on writing workshops.

On the one hand, I’ve been writing for twenty-five years. I actually get money for doing it, too. Heck, I’m one of those strange people who actually gets to use the stuff that he learned in his English degree. On the other hand, I’ve spent the last fifteen years writing things that aren’t, say, science fiction short stories like the one that I’m totally procrastinating on writing right now. So, you know, maybe I should get a refresher? And on the gripping hand: even if I need to touch up my skillset, is a writing workshop the way to go there?

Opinions welcome. I still got a few days before this online class that I happened across closes, anyway.

Open thread for an open day.

Spent most of it thinking about a new short story, after all. And probably that’s gonna keep happening for the rest of the week, because there’s a submissions deadline. So talk among youselves?

I’ll believe this about Cyberpunk 2077 when I see it.

This being “CD Projekt Red CEO: Cyberpunk 2077 will be “More Ambitious on Every Single Front”” …I mean, I believe that they want to make it. And goodness knows that Witcher: Wild Hunt will give them a budget. Still, it’s been four freaking years…

PS: Yeah, I saw that somebody was trying to stir up a controversy over the game. …Annnnnd that’s all the attention that said attempt deserves, in my opinion.

Tweet of the Day, Pandemic: Trail of Cthulhu edition.

I should convince one of my players that she should volunteer to pitch this game at gaming stores. She does that – they pay her in games, which is a sweet deal under the right financial circumstances. Anyway: looks cool.

Hey, a #CarWars contest.

I gotta think about this one for a minute. I have the outline of it in my head, or at least the number of syllables. It just has to bubble up from my subconscious… well, I hope.

Sorry. In the throes of artistic creation.

While in the shower this morning I decided to completely toss aside the idea I had for this one short story and write an entirely different one instead. Because I can write it, easily. It’s actually flowing pretty well…

My Patreon short-short story: “Don’t Look.”

It’s odd: I like the Cthulhu Mythos, but I think that things like “Don’t Look” is about as grim as I can get in that genre unless I really push myself.  Hope you like it.

My Patreon site is here.  Hey, deja vu!
