I’ve been a little quiet lately. The end of my first year as a PhD student and starting a new job feel like they’ve eaten my life. It’s been affecting my creativity too. I’ve been a little stalled on working on my game… but last night I got an email with the first sketches from the artist I’m working with. It was very, very exciting.
I had a moment. He’s not even finished yet and just seeing the work he’s done, it reinvigorates me. It’s really time to just dive in – both feet – and just finish this thing. I’ve been a little burned out all the way around. Too much GMing, not enough time as a player. Not feeling like a game is getting off the ground. Realizing that I’m just not enjoying anything I’m running. And my G+ hangouts debacle… It’s felt rough.
But some great writing by Casting Shadows (his wonderful post). Reading about Wrath of Zombie’s Frankenhack. Getting into Castles and Crusades and enjoying the pleasures of more old school play. Add on this new art infusion and well… things just feel brighter.
Now, to work.
