It seemed that I had slipped deep into the world of serious posting and I wanted to step away from that for a little bit. I've had some fiction writing projects I've been working on and other's developing. I've also done tiny edits to the blogs format to hopefully make it read and look a bit smoother.
I've written a new short story featuring Bizz, the main character from "Jita". This one is entitled "Wholesale" and its all about market PvP once again. I thoroughly enjoy Bizz as a character and he is a smooth thrill to write. It is not a long story but hopefully it will be enjoyable and satiate the appetite of those who liked Jita so much. I expect to write about him fairly regularly from this point on as part of my at least one monthly fiction piece effort.
I also have a larger project that is slowly winding its way together It is a very different track for me creatively and I am hopeful about the end once I can submit it for reader consumption.
On my right side bar I've added a few more subjects under writings. The four topics are my Eve fiction writings, my gizoogled patch notes, my non-technical guides and the last is my new project, Origin of a Spaceship.
Origin of a Spaceship started on a idea that swirled around my head when they were discussing the Laser Raven on the splash page of the launcher announcing the Dust 514 merger with Eve. It got called a Laven and my subconcious bubbled and gurgled until to my surprise my little observation of the Laven worked its way to the surface.
I was amused. It may be sad or pathetic when I can amuse myself with the things I write but sometimes its happens. I was very amused by the concept of the Laven as viewed through the eyes of a naturalist I thought of a few other possibilities but nothing came to light until someone commented on a Discophoon. It just worked for me and since that point a few other topics have wandered to the surface. I see it as a potential long term project that has endless possibilities to amuse me. I hope others get a bit of a giggle as well.
I don't always want to serious post even when I have them written. Its to easy to soak into the blogsphere and the metagame of thoughts and opinions and counter thoughts and arguments and move away from the relaxing stuff about the game. I've never offered anything other then enthusiasm for Eve in the blog. I'm not a news writer. I don't produce the things that get put on Eve News or the Mittiani.com. The blog is a mixture of thoughts, daily game life, more thoughts, and whatever bubbles out of my creative mind. I try to keep it mixed up because I feel weird and ranty when I focus on one subject post after post.
I have a new corp mate helping me to try to tighten up the grammar in my stories as well as more eyes to catch the endless sea of typos. Perhaps I can produce something that will not cause people to accuse me of having English as a fourth or fifth language and move me up to maybe a third. It is a goal. Improvements a bit a ta time.
And to all my readers thank you for coming along on this ride. The blog ticked over 100k hits for its lifetime. Hopefully I will keep you amused even as I keep myself so.
