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.

The Charm of the Familar

With a few picked up a shifts at work due to the holidays. I pondered logging in but I didn't have the energy to do so. Being able to say no to logging in is pleasant. Just as my youngest puppy interrupts me every fifteen minutes to pee, going to sleep instead of staying up is also pleasant. I had a lot of short slept nights when I was active in a corporation.

My next plan has been to learn how to scan again. The new map is in and I need to refresh my scanning skills. My hold is full of probes. My ship appears to be reasonably set up. I remembered how to hit my F key to cloak. In fact, I hit it a bit to fast. I need to get the ebb and flow of the tic back down.

I am also rusty in my paranoia. I idly switch to another window to research breadbowls and the soup I want to make later. Then I remember I am sitting, decloaked, off of a gate somewhere. Whoops. I did figure out a breadbowl recipe and soup as well.

The question was where do I relearn to scan? I need somewhere off the beate…

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 of A…

TCS: Sugar's Non-Technical Guide to Her Low Sec Market

Gevlon shocked me by featuring my store in his blog, yesterday. My entire project has been something I mostly scraped together and have bumbled through to the best of my ability and sense. Early on, I started a naming dynamic to my posts so that people could avoid the blogs about the store. These blogs are titled TCS. Also, if you search for TCS those particular blogs are available.

I decided to create a more cohesive naming strategy because someone said, “I don’t know how interested your readers will be in your market posts.” I didn’t either. I wasn't going to not write them because I write about whatever interests me. It seemed that a naming convention would correct the situation. However, I’ve started to receive a trickle of eve-mail and e-mail about what I am doing. Sometimes people ask me for advice on how to approach their own low sec market or what they should pick and choose or just how to pick and choose.

Cheradenine Harper asked me about moving forward into the wider mark…
