Reading: I’m making my way through Burning Wheel Gold while flirting with a few books. This week my reading has all been Gold and comics (more on those in another post).
Planning: Some resumes and cover letters are burning a hole in my computer and my send-rate this week has been poor. My plan is to get caught up and prep for the coming weeks send-outs.
Writing: Another week of just fiddling with a cover letter that has been giving me trouble. I’m going to set aside time for some fiction-writing.
Reading: Seed, an awesome post-apocalyptic book about climate change and bioengineered food problems.
Planning: Friend’s going away party tonight. Checking out the Filipino cultural festival on the weekend. Some hardcore training on the weekend.
Writing: L5R hack for Apocalypse World. You get a Harm wheel and a Shame wheel- because it’s all about political/social jousting until you gotta cut someone down.
Apocalypse L5R? That is awesome! I want it!
I’ve got some basic rules together and half the Great Clans. I’m going to have to figure out how shugenja work, though. Maybe in 2-3 weeks I’ll have something up on Deeper in the Game.
Can’t wait to see it, man.
Reading: Just finished the very excellent Ghost Story. Now reading Star Wars: Death Star, covering the story of its construction to its demise. An interesting rather than exciting read so far.
Planning: My eldest’s swimming lesson tomorrow morning followed by a 4th birthday party, then off to see Harry P at the flicks. Also finding the time to update the Character Burner to BW Gold (so far the Dwarves have been done) & sorting out a possible one shot of an RPG on Monday. Thinking Apocalypse World, Dungeon World or Jedi Blackbird.
Writing: Nada, unless you count updating Lifepath stats in Java code…
Reading: Just finished Alarums and Excursions #441. I can’t read the entire Gen Con loot pile all at once. Currently focusing on Stealing Cthulhu and Amaranthine, but may shift priorities tomorrow to new Bordertown book or Fiasco Companion.
Planning: Packing and other prep tonight, with Josh. Tomorrow, bus to DC to Metro to hotel. Sunday: Friend’s son’s bar mitzvah. Hang out till our flight Way Too Early on Tuesday, with Josh telecommuting Monday. WorldCon in Reno: Books, panels, music, dancing. Fly home the following Monday.
Writing: My Gen Con report, sans game write ups, for my zine for Alarums G Excursions #442. Annotations to Stealing Cthulhu, which I’d eventually like to scan in so Graham Walmsley and others can read them, if they wish.
