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

CSMX - Post #20

Summer is here and CCP is very much out of the office. Sion made a good point in wondering why everyone leaves Iceland when it has its best weather. What it means is that all is mostly quiet on the dev blog front. There are some things happening but the dev blogs and news announcements have not yet happened. The skill points were delivered on Tuesday  so yay for unallocated skill points. Over in CSM chat, there has been a lot of back and forth about sov and measuring the impact and success of things so far. I can say that CCP and the CSM are watching it. The pros and cons are coming in pretty hot and heavy. Some are being looked at now. Some have to see how things are going and if and how the direction needs to be tweaked. In my corner, I'm starting to gather things together. The summit is in seven or so weeks. In between then and now I need to gather up my question list and write down a few topics of discussion. I'm starting now because I have personal vacation at the end

And back again

My very slow wormhole adventure continues almost as slowly as I am terminating my island in Animal Crossing.  My class 3 wormhole was not where I wanted to be. I was looking for a class 1 or 2 wormhole. I dropped my probes and with much less confusion scanned another wormhole. I remembered to dscan and collect my probes as I warped to the wormhole. I even remembered to drop a bookmark, wormholes being such good bookmark locations later. My wormhole told me it was a route into low sec. I tilted my head. How circular do our adventures go. Today might be the day to die and that too is okay. That mantra dances in the back of my head these days. Even if someone mocks me, what does that matter? Fattening someone's killboard is their issue not mine. So I jumped through and found myself in Efa in Khanid, tucked on the edge of high sec and null sec. What an interesting little system.  Several connections to high sec. A connection to null sec. This must be quite the traffic system.    I am f
