Just when I thought I’d have some quality time off because I’m out of a full time job, I started playing WOW again.
Damn you all.
In the meantime, I did manage to finish reading The Writer’s Journey, and it’s an excellent read for aspiring writer types. I’ve always had ideas for stories that starts with a critical moment – a twist or a climax, but I never knew how to go about developing the rest of the story… and the guidelines from this book makes a lot of sense. It was recommended to me back in the days when I was taking creative writing in college… not a bad recommendation at all.
Also, I managed to pick up Puzzle Quest for the DS. It’s eating up my sleeping hours like no tomorrow. Definitely not for the faint hearted though – there’s minimal sound or visual effects, but what is left is oozing with old school RPG goodness. Playing out RPG battles over a Bejeweled grid is silly, I know, but if that’s not the most addicting thing I’ve played on a hand held system, I don’t know what is.
Finally, I never knew that horseback riding would make your pelvic bones sore as hell the day after. The more you know.
