Turns out, once you come out from under your writer’s rock, you find there’s shit outside like daylight.
But what to do with it all?
Today marked the day: a bunch of beta copies of Upgrade were shipped out to eager readers. And by “eager” I mean, people who love me more than they love themselves, because those first drafts are nasty. I’ve got a few weeks before they’ll start coming back in with comments, so what do I fill my days with?
Ok, and probably, planning my next work. I get a bit of head space back now to think about Boundless, which is important: it’ll take time to spin that sucker up to speed, and get my head out of Upgrade. I’ve been thinking about writing a small palette-cleanser, but time’s the thing.
Despite that, I’m enjoying a bit of heels-up. I played, and had more fun than I probably deserved to, Fuse. After reading the reviews, I expected actual entrails to fall from my PS3, but it turns out it’s fun in the same brain-in-a-jar way that any blockbuster is. And, it’s got great witty banter. Divinity: Original Sin and I are spending quiet time together.
Most of all I get some time back inside my own head to think about important things — e.g., “The Wedding.” That’ll be awesome.
