ANYway, I know that I wrote last time (2016ish?) that the thing was a damn grind and I felt my posts were neither enjoyable nor particularly inspired and I didn't suspect I'd participate again. So what's changed? Um...maybe the bad memories have faded? Maybe? Maybe I'm just a sucker for a challenge...or punishment.
[actually, that's not really true. I'm lazy about challenges: I prefer to pummel my opponents at no cost to myself. I like my sports teams to win comfortably, not "edge" the opposition. Real challenges cause STRESS, and I prefer less of that particular juju]
It helps though that I have a theme already thought out for this year's masochism:
Revamping Karameikos for B/X
Yeah, I've been blogging/thinking about Karameikos anyway (see my prior entries here, here, here, and here) and I feel like there's more to blog about...it's just fertile ground for my thought-box. Plus, because of all the dumb fantasy names in the setting, I can be sure to have entries for every letter (should I go with the immortal "Zirchev" for Z, or minister of state "Zogrev Yarol?"). See? Easy-peasy...just like I like my challenges.
Hopefully, this won't be too painful and I'll be able to knock them out in timely fashion. April's actually an extremely busy month for me, but I don't think I'm going to be doing much traveling (for a change) and my plan is to write these posts in the early morning hours. Commitment and follow-through is, of course, good practice for self-discipline and I can always use more of that.
Besides what else do I have to do with my spare hours? Finish my 2018 tax return? Find a damn job? Sheesh...that stuff can wait!
|Yeah, it's the 10th anniversary, but this|
is only my 3rd time doing it...big whoop.
