Getting Back At It

Home / Blog / Getting Back At It

So, I have taken a bit of time off of here, and of writing in general thanks to a combination of things. I have been getting tremors in my left hand pretty bad these past few weeks, and I don’t know why. It shakes whenever I try to type from my normal spot, and it… Yeah, it has me a little worried. I don’t know what is going on with it, but I am addressing it as best I can and just letting it run its course. It isn’t that bad today, so I am going to try and get as much done as I can in order to take advantage of that. I am also having migraines again, and that hasn’t been helping matters. Couple that with the utter life-ruiner that was TFF, and then The Division coming out, and yeah… I haven’t been in the best shape to create these last few weeks. I am trying to get back on track though, and this entry is kind of the start to that. I want to be back at it, and here i am going to try and get that process started.

So, things… TFF was great again this year, and a lot better than last year. A lot less stress, a lot less drama, and just overall a better convention. I talked to a lot of people, knew way more than I should have about things, and it was kind of a mess on the back end as a result. Front facing, we did amazing; raised a ton of money for charity and everyone I talked to had a lot more good than bad to say about the convention. We have big plans for 2017 too, so I am looking forward to that even more now that I am really beginning to run through things in my head. That said, I am also extremely nervous about next year because we are trying to really take the writing track and blow it out in a big way for next year. I want it to be bigger, better, and more spectacular than the previous years, and with that comes a lot more responsibility and work that needs to get put in. I am already running around like a chicken with my head cut off at the con, and thinking about doing that before too… Yeah, I am not looking forward to that aspect of things. I want to do it though with the death of RF, and going forward I want us to become the new writers con. So, I am hopeful, just nervous.

Past that, The Division… Awesome game. Came and ate up pretty much a week of my life as I tried to recover from the con and get this shaking out of my hand. It helped a lot to get everything kind of situated there and whatnot. I mean, I still have my stressors… Money and whatnot, but things are getting back to normal around here. I am thankful for that too to be honest, as I missed a certain amount of normality. I mean, I don’t mind mixing things up, but I am a creature of habit in a big way. I want things to stay as they are as much as I can make them, and when things get tossed into a mess, well… I struggle to handle that. I did my best though, and it shows through in the fact that I have come out the other side of all of this with nothing to really show for it aside for a bad March in terms of writing and that’s it. Everything else is good though, and with my gaming stint out of my system, creating can resume in a big way. I have been brainstorming all day to be honest, and I am really looking forward to what is going to go into a couple of the projects that I have on my mental list. But yeah… Division is great. I couldn’t recommend it enough, if for nothing else than I have friends to play with; no one I know owns an Xbox One.

So, past those things nothing new really. Kita and I are as good as ever; less arguing than ever before, we’re very close… It’s kind of how I had always wanted things to be, and here they are now in a big way. I am happy with him, and with how things are going. I want them to stay this way too, badly in fact. This amount of normalcy and happy home and all of that are things that I miss dearly, and need even more. I can just feel how much better I have been with things going well between he and I, and how much more content we both are. I mean… I’m comfortable, I’m happy, I’m less stressed than I have been in years… I needed all of this, and I want to hang onto it as much as I can. So I plan to do just that, and to keep on clinging to it for as long as I can.

So yeah, nothing else to report. Just a quick little status update from a tiny little draolf. I will be going to FWA, and should have a pretty darn good time there… I hope. That con is always so hit or miss for me that I worry about how it is going to go. I am staying with friends as usual, and that should be interesting… I haven’t stayed with this particular combination before, and the two of them… Yeah, I dunno, we shall see how that goes. Family has been good enough, with my siblings all being themselves to a T. I dunno how I feel about all of that, but I am trying not to think on it too much as I just don’t know what to think when it comes to all of that. I mean, family and whatnot, so they are always going to be a little bit of a stressor with how much bad history is there, but… Meh, I don’t know. I just don’t. Either way, yeah, all done for now… Ciao!
