For some reason, this past year—ever since our youngest was born, if I’m totally honest—it’s been a struggle to do anything, especially keeping up with writing posts on a blog that I know very few people read. (Not a plea for sympathy, but I suppose it is an attempted explanation for apathy. 🙂 )
I’ve never been much of a goal-setter, and the last twelve to fourteen months have made even simple things seem much more daunting than they really ought to have been. Chalk it up to poor sleep and diet habits, the constant hum of low-level chaos that surrounds a home full of small children, or possible chronic caffeine overdose, but doing anything that required more effort than sitting at my desk staring at my screen just seemed like too much work. Hence the lack of anything new here on the blog.
But things have been looking up lately—Don’t self-diagnose and self-medicate, kids. It ain’t worth it.—and starting today, I’d like to turn things around. 🙂
For the time being, the schedule for Locke Vs. will just be “More posts!”, but hopefully things will get a little more specific down the road. (“Baby steps, start posting on the blog.”) I’ve redesigned the site a little bit, and I’ve decided that I want to put a little more emphasis on my primary gaming interests, namely Destiny 2 and Final Fantasy XIV. Each month, I’m going to try to get at least one “Ghost Stories” post (Destiny 2) and one “Rushin’ Roulette” post (Final Fantasy XIV) up on the blog. And with the advent of “Curse of Osiris” and my hopeful ascension to my free company’s static raiding team, I should have plenty of content to write about.
And there will be some other bits and bobs tossed into the pot from time to time, as well. I’m dipping my feet back into roleplaying by GMing a couple of play-by-post games, and there should hopefully be some exciting news on the editing and writing front sometime within the next couple months.
So, fingers crossed.
