Mission Statement

First off, I'm lazy.

Second, I love to be productive. In this case, I specifically like to produce works of creative writing and traditional game-related material (pen and paper roleplaying, mostly, but also board games and similar affairs).

Needless to say, these two traits often clash. I find that I have too many ideas that I have done far too little about. I need to get in the habit of working, period. That's where this blog comes in.

So, the mission statement: For every 24 hours that this blog exists, there will be a new post with content. This content could be fluff, crunch, or just a piece of writing unrelated to any gaming endeavor. It could very well be crap, though I'll endeavor to make sure I provide at least half a page of said crap. If I fall behind, priority #1 is to maintain the daily upload rate but I will catch up until there's been one post for each day. If I know I'll be cut off from the blog for a time it'll be my responsibility to build up an adequate buffer- ideally I'll have one going at all times. These are the rules I'm setting out for myself. This isn't going to be a blog about me, unless personal revelations turn out to be an effective motivational tool. I doubt it.

As for you, the hypothetical reader: If there is one thing I crave, it's constructive feedback. This is an open invitation, one that I can't emphasize enough- PLEASE tell me what you like and don't like, what you want to see more of and what you could do without, what I could do to improve my work. Positive or negative, odds are I'll be clinging gratefully to your every word.

So, let's give this a try. Over the next few days my plan is to introduce the basics of my two biggest ongoing projects- Vrilwar and The 7th Circle. Hopefully you'll hear more from me soon.

Pffft, "a post a day." How naive the 2007 version of me was. Though to be fair, it's not that the goal I set was too much work- turns out that I couldn't stand doing the shorter, low-content posts I outlined here. Maybe I should try this goal again sometime.
