Check-In: Let's Talk About December...

Hey folks! It's been a while since I've checked in, and an even longer while since I've written about my writing. Truth be told, 2017 was a year full of challenges unlike any I've ever experienced before, not in their gravity but in their overall impact to my day-to-day life, and that of my family.

That being said, it's not like I haven't been productive to some degree. I assisted with the production of Street Masters from Blacklist Games (which I should be getting my copy of hopefully before the holidays!), I wrote a short story to add to a science-fiction anthology of an author friend of mine, I've launched Season Two of The NovelCast, and I've written the beats for the next three books I'll be penning. So while the amount of work I've completed is a far cry from what I know I'm capable of in a calendar year, it is still things I am proud of, and things I've never done before.

But enough about that, let's talk about the future.

Another Story Revisited, Another One Left Behind

Creatively speaking, my life took a small leap forward this last week. Feeling bad for having not embarked on any writing projects since we moved earlier this year, I decided to recover from this two-fold. First, I began laying the groundwork for a new horror novella, especially since Behind the Locked Door did so well in its first few days of release. I wrote the beats and got the pre-work established for this new book. Then, I followed it up with starting work on Season Two of Enter the NovelCast, including recording chapters for the new audiobook and starting a Patreon to help make it even better (you can find the Novelcast Patreon HERE).

But I wasn't prepared for the two opportunities that would come my way via social media nearing the end of the week last week, both of which will help spur along my career as a self-published author and game designer.

Alien: Covenant - Thoughts & Reflections

The last movie I got to before this was Star Wars: Rogue One (which you can read my thoughts about HERE), but when my friend offered to treat me to a late night viewing of Alien: Covenant simply to hear my thoughts on it, I agreed (not before clearing it with my wife first, of course). What follows here is a SPOILER-FREE review of the latest installment in the Alien franchise.

The Campaign Chronicle: Savage WARS - Session Two

The Campaign Chronicle is a regular blog series in which I publish my notes, thoughts, and plans for my tabletop role-playing games for which I am game mastering. These feature world-building notes, recaps of game sessions, and notes to keep in mind for future sessions. Enjoy!

The following post will look into the playing of Session Two, based off of my notes from the previous session and the details I outlined between sessions one and two.
