vacation beach Well, not entirely. This is the time of year when I take a much needed break from blog posts, FacebookWattpad, researching for future stories and projects and so on and so forth. This year, while I am cutting back a little, I have part two of Trials of The Hunt to jump-start. There is no full-on vacation, except for a couple weekends here and there, and a week for GenCon in August.

There are great things in the pipeline for this year!

First things first – I’d like to complete my online series, Trials of The Hunt, before Summer gets busy. That means completed, final chapter edited and posted no later than the last week of June.

GenCon is less than a hundred days away! The Best Four Days in Gaming! is one of the highlights of my year. It’s always a great time to relax, do some serious gaming, check out new board games, anime and hang out with friends I haven’t seen in a while.

It’s that time again…

I’m always thinking about ways I can improve my craft through everyday living. One of them is through hobbies. One of my favorite hobbies is gaming. I enjoy role playing games, writing adventures, worldbuilding, making new characters, writing for my characters, and just generally learning about new gaming systems and new worlds.

I have blogged about writing across genre’s to improve skill recently, and I believe writing for games is a great way to do it. Particularly, I like the way that kind of writing focuses me on a very singular task. If I’m building a new character, I have to figure out a background. I have to write about this new character within the backdrop of the world we play in and the group I’m trying to mesh with. What is my character’s motivations? What is her personality like? What does she look like? What is her family like? Does she have a family? If not, why not?
