Signing Off For (Most) of the Rest of the Year, But First…

Funny how I say I’m going to take a break from blogging not long after my first new post in many moons, isn’t it?  But yeah, it’s true.  I realized that there are just a couple of weeks left in the shit-nado that is 2017, got a couple of holidays left, and most of you are binging on eggnog and fruit cake.

I seriously doubt I’ll get around to any new posts before the year’s out.  Part of this is because of family and work obligations, and part of it is because I’m still trying to get my blogging mojo back.  Turns out – and I might be repeating myself – coming up with blog posts is like pimpin’.  It ain’t easy.

There are some new features coming up in the blog that should make fresh topics easy to come by, and hopefully that’ll lead to a more enjoyable experience for you all.

The Toolkit

Inspired from Stephen King’s analogy that a writer’s skills are like a layered toolbox, this series will cover things like research, editing, idea generation, and other issues that writers have to deal with.

About…

This series will focus on specific elements of sci-fi, fantasy, and horror that catch my attention, why they do, and how writers can use them in their work.

Lessons From…

This is a look at different works of sci-fi, fantasy, and horror, and what writers can take away from them.  It’s similar to About…, but will focus on a specific work rather than a broad topic.

Any other post that does not start with these titles is pretty much a big question mark.  It could be me ranting about how a draft is being a pain or a pat on my back for having a particularly good month of writing or anything else that doesn’t fall under a certain category.

Oh, and one more thing…

The Gaming Blog

Okay, this might not even come to pass, what with all the other time constraints I’m juggling, but I’ve been DYING to get back into games for a while really as a hobby more than anything else.  I don’t expect to go to game professionally in South Korea any time soon, but I’m part of that first generation that’s going to be in a retirement home talking about how we had Nintendo and Xbox as kids just like old people today talk about cards and checkers.  It’s been ten years since I’ve done any serious gaming, and I think it would be an interesting experience getting back into that realm.  Plus, people keep telling me I need a hobby, so there’s that.
