What I’ve been up to lately:
- Watched 3 seasons of Mad Men. Depressing but compelling show about complete douchemongers.
- Wrote 5 story arcs for City of Heroes. Got that out of my system (for now).
- Romped through Double XP Weekend in CoH.
- Beta tested (yep) more CoH stuff.
All of that is now behind me. I’ve had some fun, refreshed my creativity. Now it’s anachronauts time.
(It’s funny, but all that time I was anxiety-worrying “I’m not doing enough to contribute to the world because I’m not working on my creative projects!” which, as my sister helped me figure out last night, is incredibly ironic when you consider that what I was doing was consuming the creative projects of others, which is what they wanted me to do with their work, which is why I’m doing the same work for others.

I’ve also figured out how to get over a plot problem. It WILL require a retcon. I won’t be saying what that retcon is until the time comes, though, otherwise it’s less Chekov’s Gun and more Chekov’s Rocket Propelled Grenade. I seem to be using those a bit clumsily lately, but I’ll polish ’em up in post, I guess.
So. More to come. No hardline deadline ETA for it, but I’m on the right track. Also, note that PAX will cause more delays, but I have the week after it off, so it shouldn’t be too delaying.
