Let us speak of the intervening annoyances of reality.
Progressively, I have been lately coming to the conclusion that there are only so many D&D players out there. Not that I don't love you bastards - those that I do love, at least. Unfortunately, thinking and planning as a writer, there may not be enough of you to love me into a steady gig.
Recently, now that I am three months unemployed, in a city woefully dependent on a stumbling oil industry, I am thinking of the distant future. I am thinking that perhaps I need to branch out into other subjects.
I have considered starting a blog reviewing film or discussing theatre. I've done a lot of that here on the blog and I could chatter on for awhile that way. Others have certainly found an online future there. Yet I know from earlier efforts in that direction that I don't have much interest in it. I mean, I can write about it - I just don't care to.
Politics is a possibility; yet I am so disgusted with the state of politics in the present era, both at home and abroad, I doubt I have much to say that wouldn't be ranting. I would prefer something more civil.
Towards that end, I am going to try an experiment. It will likely fail . . . but we will never know if we don't try.
I hope the reader understands that this will not mean I will cease writing this blog or cease working on my wiki. I plan to continue playing D&D until my demise and the wiki is tremendously satisfying as a game support.
Only, of late, when someone asks me to send something that I have written, that proves my skill . . . well, I've spent most of my recent efforts on this blog and this subject. I'm greatly out of the habit where other writing is concerned.
So, there we have it. As long as I'm not employed anyway, I have the time to spend on vanity projects. I'm interested to see if this one takes root.
