I just wrote an e-mail to a friend, giving a kind of status update and explaining why and how gaming during the week doesn’t fit into my schedule lately. This August is hectic, filled with transition. It should be a good thing.
Reading: I am re-reading Lone Wolf and Cub by Kazuo Koike and Goseki Kojima. I vividly remember when it first hit the states and I read it with my dad. I read it entirely as an adult and there is a speech in the next to last book that straight up made me get out of bed and cry.
The re-releases are published in small manga-style collections that I found really unsatisfying; the format just didn’t do justice to the artist’s wonderful black and white landscapes. My phone is actually a satisfying way to read it.
By my bed is Max Gladstone’s latest, Last First Snow.
Planning: Life is a hectic blur this month. Don’t even.
I’m trying to figure out when I can game.
Writing: The good news is that once I’m through this transition, I should have a neat space cleared in my life for writing.
And how are you?
I’m writing and planning In Production, my new RPG about the behind-the-scenes world of movie production. Trying to get together playtests and finishing up the monkey work on the manuscript.
