It would seem that I got work. As in: paid work. And to boot it is creative… well… sort-of-kinda-not-quite-maybe-semi-creative. At any rate it’s close enough to make me a happy bunny.
To celebrate this momentous occasion I shall reanimate the blog (for the umpteenth time, I know… please don’t laugh).
While in Greece I did a lot of heavy thinking on the subject of creativity. I realized that there were a few new-ish things that I wanted to try doing (which I won’t quite talk about just yet). I realized that what I really really really *want* to do is to write. I came up with a few things that I would like to write in the future, which is awesome. I came up with a few ideas of what I want to do with the (hopefully) awesome things that I am going to write in the future. I realized that I’ve been too worried about writing to actually just sit down and write. (Which I think is also why I haven’t been blogging.) And I realized that I need deadlines.
Now, I have a very real and very frightening deadline regarding that sort-of-kinda-not-quite-maybe-semi-creative project that I mentioned above, so that’s not going to be a problem. But beyond that I think I will have to be a little creative. Luckily, I have a blog.
So, come November, once I’ll be done with the semi-creative-writing-thingie, I’ll be abusing this blog as a pseudo-deadline-generator and I’ll post regular updates of what and how much I’ve been doing. This won’t only be writing-related, but will also be about the graphics that I’ll be doing for the Lands of Dream and a few other things that shall be revealed in good time. I hope it will help me get back on me feet creatively. I sure could use that.
I realize that most of the above is terribly vague. Which is partially because if I say what new and exciting things I want to do then I’ve committed to them, which is scary. Also because I don’t want to brag about these so-called “new and exciting” things without having anything to show for it. What I can tell you is that there will be cool Lands of Dream stuff soon and that Jonas and I did a lot of work on Ithaka while we were away. And that I’m finally back to updating/rewriting Zombies and Elephants, so maybe the final version of that will be ready before the year is gone.

November? Almost sounds like NaNoWriMo to me! 🙂
Welcome back in the fray!
