It’s National Novel Writing Month! Years ago I talked about why I thought NaNoWriMo was poorly timed. That still stands. Having said that, I thought I’d use the start of NaNoWriMo to announce my plans:
The Autoblography will end this week, on Friday, at entry #40. (Yes, some of you already guessed that.) The portion published thus far is almost 60,000 words, which is pretty much a novel in itself. I stopped working on my novel so I could write a different one. This is why I can’t have nice things. I wrote the Autoblography in the space of ten weeks. That’s a brisk pace, but it’s about half the speed you’d need to achieve if you wanted to meet the “50k words in 4 weeks” goal of NaNoWriMo. Crimey.
Once that’s out of the way, I plan to put my efforts into finishing my book.
Some people make promises on their blog in order to publicly set goals for themselves. The guilt or danger of public failure drives them. My creativity doesn’t work that way, and I can’t squeeze more work out by making public declarations. So be aware that I’m simply announcing my intentions. No promise is implied. To put it more succinctly: Skyrim is coming out, and I don’t get XP for posting stuff for you to read.
Punishing The Internet for Sharing
Why make millions on your video game when you could be making HUNDREDS on frivolous copyright claims?
Two minutes of fun at the expense of a badly-run theme park.
A Star is Born
Remember the superhero MMO from 2009? Neither does anyone else. It was dumb. So dumb I was compelled to write this.
Silver Sable Sucks
This version of Silver Sable is poorly designed, horribly written, and placed in the game for all the wrong reasons.
Shamus Plays WOW
Ever wondered what's in all those quest boxes you've never bothered to read? Get ready: They're more insane than you might expect.
