well, my lack of posts around here is bound to have left some cobwebs. But I prefer spider webs. So in place of an actual, you know, well thought out and meaningful post you get photos from my backyard this morning. But just so you know, I’m not falling into oblivion or anything. I’ve been doing things.
- I wrote my DA:O mage/Alistair ficlet. Posted both her and on fanfiction.net.
- I have started my first RP character profile for Warden’s Vigil, A Dragon Age RP community. This is my first RPG outside of a video game. And quite the challenge, even just writing the profile, as I haven’t done this since D&D tabletop 15 years ago.
That brings me to a small rant. I’m tired of writing snobbery. People that write fan fic, or even a blog, are putting their work out there, every day. It may not be paid work, it may be a hobby, but it takes guts. So for people to say “Oh you just write fanfic” as if it’s not REAL writing? Yeah, pretty damned ignorant. I’ve read fanfics that are superior to some books I’ve read. You know what? I’ve always enjoyed writing. Even as a little kid I’d write stories. Then, for some reason I stopped. I’ve picked it up again though, and found the snobbery annoying. It’s almost as annoying as the old argument that Photography isn’t an art. End rant.
Where was I? Oh right, my list.
- I’ve republished my first fan fic, unfinished, but with hopes I will get it going again. yay for putting it in my face to pressure me daily!
- I am waiting for FedEx to deliver my Droid. Hurry up!!
