Damn you G+!

Because of G+ I find myself looking at my blog and realizing that I haven't posted since the beginning of the month. Obviously I need to make a concerted effort to correct the problem. Let's start with another tome in the Tome of Tomes series...

This common work of fiction for children provides moral lessons regarding fidelity, honor, and justice. A contentious work, some claim the morality of the The Dowager Queen and Other Tales is questionable at best, and downright pernicious at worst. Nevertheless, the stories seem to never be far from the hands of impressionable wealthy youth.

The Blank Page Surprises You and Hits for 6 Points of Damage!

I've just put the finishing touches on the 1st draft of the Player's Guide for Sorcery & Super Science! 2nd Edition and I've done a rough outline for the Gamemaster's Guide.

Now I'm looking at a blank page with that all-too-familiar feeling. For those of you who don't write, it's hard to describe... it's kinda the way you felt when you were very young and just reached the top of the big playground slide the first time. You're excited to be where you are and ready to go, but oh boy!, you'd also rather just edge your way back down the stairs. It's both comforting and nerve-wracking, and I'm not sure I'd want to write without it. I'd worry that something was going to be missing in the final product.

So instead of writing for it, I wrote this-the written version of the deep breath before slipping down that hot metal slide for the very first time.
