Mostly Confused · 5:23am January 6th

So back after another hiatus and thought I'd do a little writing again in the ol online diary. Both a lot has happened and nothing at all which I found is a common trend in life where progress is almost stagnant for reasons outside of our control, but for a week I was able to rein that in. Did the modeling thing again and I learned how to do humans now. Blender has never been something I took too seriously since I always went with half measures. I'm glad for once I managed to get far enough to

So last blog I posted wasn't a real update. It was generally a way to showcase how I throw ideas at a wall until something sticks. Allow everything to spiderweb. Now that's all well and good, but it was a giant wall of text with a story in its own right trying to detail the plot and setting of an RP while also giving an inside look on some characters. It was a condensed mess and even condensed it was long as all hell. With this in mind allow to give some reading recommendations,

Roleplaying my Lazy way to write · 5:28am Oct 18th, 2021

So I decided I should talk about one of the ways I've kept up writing. I've mostly done Discord RP's where the entire thing is text based with no stats or anything like that even during combat and the like. Now I have also done a game or two of D&D where the RP is more verbal with a stat sheet and its more a game than a co-op writing garbage dump sort of deal. It's one way of constantly polishing little skills such as dialogue between characters by interacting with people with different morals,

Once again a month has flown on past. I'm proud to say both a lot and nothing at all have happened since. Read a few fics that were really good as per my usual suggestion box I'll supply a few links right here: Sundowner, Daily Equestria Life With Monster Girl, and The Witch

Midnight Oil · 6:52am Aug 11th, 2021

I'm writing this up at about 3 in the mornin. Seems as good a time as any to reminisce about older stuff that I used to know. Stuff I used to do really, flipped back through old blogs again and my eyes drift down to the views that make them up. Then I look at the latest ones, man the numbers. Part of me cares, cause I looked to begin with, so I want to go out and advertise myself to build something up. Build something so I won't be forgotten to be another statistic. Another part of me doesn't

Some recommendations and a writing tip on the side · 6:11pm Jul 31st, 2021

I have once again returned to do my usual rant to myself. Blogs are a good thing to look back on, honestly I've treated them more as a diary if anything else. Part of me feels as if I should do more of these, more self reflection in written form spurs on more action, but at the same time I don't think about this place most of the time. Out of sight out of mind ya know? Course as per the title I decided I'd do some reading, that friend of mine that was writing sort of dumped his idea and started

Kickin' the ol' bucket · 9:48am May 1st, 2021

Didn't really do any blogs for bout a good 5 months or so. Honestly didn't even look at the site here for a good 4 of those short months. Definitely a hop, skip, and a jump away eh. I ain't been up to much in the meantime, memories been a tad fuzzy as of late, been wanting to relive some older days to patch that right up. Started playing Terraria again after who knows how long, mostly been doing it with a buddy that had never played the game before, yet despite me having killed Golem as the

Experiment · 1:16am Dec 31st, 2020

So some time ago in the past 2 weeks, I've read a couple of Displaced fics where the mc becomes a villain. Idea's interesting and could have credence but most of the time the only interesting aspect was the character of the villain and their intrinsic abilities end up not lending themselves at all to actual conflict. It's almost as if the only reason the character was a villain had nothing to do with their powers or body and more on the mental side which no longer exists because of the body's

My thoughts on game design · 6:40pm Dec 10th, 2020

Here's yet another of my rambles that I've taken upon doing. For this one, I want to have a more focused line of thought throughout it, and as per the title, it'll be about game design. There are many forms of game design that can be discussed such as pieces from fighting games, shooters, exploration-based games, etc. Recently I've been playing Genshin Impact and I'd like to talk about the design that was put into that game as it is one of the only games of its kind with Breathe of the Wild as

This might be a thing · 2:43am Dec 4th, 2020

So I've been rather consistently popping back into Fimfic lately purely cause there have been some fics that I want to read here that are still updated. I've also been playing Jojo: Heritage for the Future, so I've been looking at Jojo's Bizarre Adventure crossover fics since that's been on my mind. Just about all the ones I've found that are semi-recent or are still getting updates are bluntly put, shit. I could write my own to try and put out a story I want to see instead of wait for someone
