Writing Stuff #3 and #4

My proof readers are off having real lives. I'll have to have them proof stories 3 and 4 for all my wondrous typos and other such issues. However, I put them up anyway because I'm excited sometimes. I also wanted to say, to a point, this is what I am doing. Here has been my time. Docked up in station, my ship bobbing in the background as a word document covers most of my screen.

I decided to add a little 'update' notification to the Eve Stories link in a hope that it will be a bit more noticeable. Another reason I am dropping a post is because a lot of people (including myself) read blogs on cell phones. The mobile version of blogger does not display the links and other goodies that we add to the blogs.

The stories are all linked here, on my new Eve Stories page.

As I write these words I let my imagination take control and then wrap it into a bundle of Eve. I often ask myself, what is going on? Who is it going on with? What reflects the real life and times of a player.

And then I've been running with it.

I don't have a set goal or number of things to write for this contest. I'm not trying to spam it. I'm just using the momentum to see what I can produce. I guess it looks like some type of attention whorement. For me, its been a very fun process so far. Sometimes I get rather excited as I write and the scenes start to flow.

I'm happy that people are putting up with me. I have these random bursts of excitement and odd questions in chat all the time. My boys and my gankers have been good about working through the technical detail and funneling my creativity into enough realism that hopefully not to many eyes will roll.

So I've finished up Sleeper Dreams and If Bullets Were Kisses. Both have been submitted to the contest. Both need a comb through with the proof readers but I've been well known to toss things out on the internet anyway with the hopes that someone will enjoy it regardless.

Taboo Questions

Let us talk contentious things. What about high sec? When will CCP pay attention to high sec and those that cannot spend their time in dangerous space?  This is somewhat how the day started, sparked by a question from an anonymous poster. Speaking about high sec, in general, is one of the hardest things to do. The amount of emotion wrapped around the topic is staggering. There are people who want to stay in high sec and nothing will make them leave. There are people who want no one to stay in high sec and wish to cripple everything about it. There are people in between, but the two extremes are large and emotional in discussion. My belief is simple. If a player wishes to live in high sec, I do not believe that anything will make them leave that is not their own curiosity. I do not believe that we can beat people out of high sec or destroy it until they go to other areas of space. Sometimes, I think we forget that every player has the option to not log back in. We want them to log

Maybe one day!

It was a random question that I knew the answer of. I have 'Sugar' as a keyword so it highlights green and catches my attention. This made me chuckle. Maybe I'll have to go and see what it is like to shoot a ship one day? I could not help but smile. Basi suggested that I put my Titan killmail in my bio and assert my badassery. I figure, naw. It was a roll of the dice that landed me that kill mail. It doesn't define me as a person. Bios are interesting. The idea of a biography is a way to personalize your account. You can learn a lot about a person by what they choose to put in their bio

Conflicted

Halycon said it quite well in a comment he left about the skill point trading proposal for skill point changes. He is conflicted in many different ways. So am I. Somedays, I don't want to be open minded. I do not want to see other points of view. I want to not like things and not feel good about them and it be okay. That is something that is denied me for now. I've stated my opinion about the first round of proposals to trade skills. I don't like them. That isn't good enough. I have to answer why. Others do not like it as well. I cannot escape over to their side and be unhappy with them. I am dragged away and challenged about my distaste.  Some of the people I like most think the change is good. Other's think it has little meaning. They want to know why I don't like it. When this was proposed at the CSM summit, I swiveled my chair and asked if they realized that they were undoing the basic structure that characters and game progression worked under. They said th
