I am home from vacation, yay! A few things that need addressing before we get full swing into the posting week:
1) I came home to good news too, I was one of the winners of The Ancient Gaming Noob’s EVE Screenshot Contest. I’ll be honest, I pretty much submitted a variety of shots that covered as many categories as possible – but I had no idea that there was a “most orange” category. Not that that makes the win any less fun. I am due to re-up my account this week, and the extra 10 million will come in quite handy!
2) As some of you may have seen, I got a very special email this week. I’m still awaiting some confirmation that was, in fact, the real deal, but at this point I don’t really have any reason to suspect otherwise. I am impressed, and I have to take back my PR relations failure assessment. If Trion is trolling the game blogging community looking for feedback and checking things out, and keeping open lines of communication – well, thats a huge PR win.
3) I have decided to engage in NaNoWriMo this year. I’ve been wanting to do it for awhile now, but after sitting in on the intimate Q&A sessions with some of world class authors at LibertyCon this year – I just have to do it. I have to do it not to be published or be a full time author – but so I can look at myself in the mirror and say “I wrote a full length novel.” Which is something I grew up believing I could never accomplish. If anyone else wants to jump in this year – I’m happy to support you in whatever way possible!
4) I’m sticking by my guns – Cataclysm will be the highwater mark for WoW. It will be all downhill after this. Nothing lasts forever, even the 800 pound gorilla.
