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.

Sugar’s Non-Technical Guide to Making Boosters

Welcome to my non-technical and outdated but probably still useful guide to boosters.  There have been changes to how things are built in Eve. This was the old POS code before the introduction of new structures in 2016.   This is just a walk through on my wobbling path of booster production.  It took me half a dozen different documents to figure out what I needed to do to make these mythical things.  It is what I do.  It may not be perfect but it works.

This is pirate focused industry.
This guide brought to you by Lain asking me to write it after I tried to explain it in chat.

Why make boosters? Because drugs are good.  Really they are performance enhancers and performance enhancers can give someone that extra edge in PvP.  It was also because my boys used them and when they ran low they often ran out, I could be their supplier.  They would no longer hoard their drugs due to the length of time it takes to get fresh product.. The thought of being a drug kingpin was also very appealing. …

CSM: Running for Office: Week Six

Nine days untill  the polls open.

It is amazing how much effort can go into crafting thirteen hundred characters. When I first looked at my CSM application I thought that it would be easy to write the official words. Of course it was not. The limit was the largest hurdle. I had so much to say and so few words to say it in. But, I eventually worked through it and submitted everything last Sunday evening. I sent off my passport at the same time and now it is just a short, but long wait.

Tomorrow is the final day of application submissions. Then, on the 3rd, we should find out who actually submitted their applications and passports and passed their background checks. The polls open the following Tuesday. I’ve checked my submission a few times. If I try to fill out the form with Sugar again it tells me that she has already submitted one. I sent my e-mail to the correct place. How I wish for a confirmation email to stare at. For now, i just fret. When I started the run I was worried about …

Busy, busy, busy

I find that it is still easy to write about Eve. However, I've not been playing Eve. I spent most of the last few weeks finishing up my crochet project. It was a birthday present for my best friend. Since someone expressed interest in it, here it is.




It is displayed on a king size bed. I made it as a birthday present for my best friend. We've had twenty years of friendship. I met her online when I was a teenager. Our birthdays are two weeks apart so I celebrated mine by making her something. I'm not one to celebrate birthdays but now and then I try to pull myself to a social norm and do something special for the people I love.

I spent a long time fighting to be myself. I finally discovered a balance in this last handful of years. It is still a struggle but for some reason, in my late thirties, understanding is moving briskly along. With that understanding comes comfort. I don't have to fight about and for things like I used to. I don't have to make anyone accept me…
