OK a bit behind – been busy, been traveling, so here’s what’s up!
With the holidays coming, here’s some gift idea generators for you. Because generators.
Got a lot more writing done on Way With Worlds – in this case I’ll cover RPGs and their pluses (and minuses), and voyage into conflict and cultural meltdowns later. I’m glad I got to cover the use/misuse of RPGs in worldbuilding as I think games often influence our worldbuilding.
Next up for generators will probably be a magical power generator, for those anime like Fairy Tail and some early fantasy where “superpower” and “magic” and “martial arts” were kinda slammed together. I’ve had this one brewing for a bit, sort of somewhere between “Anime Power” and “Magical Forms” – but I want to add some stylistic options to try out.
I’ll look at the Plot Twist generator next year – I am thinking I need to learn how to pace myself on those crazy ones. Still figuring out how to start that thing – genre limits? Freeform?
I did get my mobile environment up – and then didn’t use it over the holidays. I used XAMPP.
MuseHack, as you saw, is re-structuring – to be my more voice yet a voice of enablement. That’s taking time, but I like how it’s shaping up – and expect a lot over the holidays! I also just finished my Fandom Identity series, and started a new two parter on “Is There An IT Gap.” I also have a few more things coming up after that as I focus more longform. Also be sure to check it’s spinoff site for getting “Geek Involved” – CivicGeek.com.
