New Fiction Today

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.

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
