This last week or so has been a surprisingly good time for me. As mentioned in my last post I attended the Sheffield Sci-Fi and Fantasy Writers’ Group’s ‘Write A Book In A Day’ event, and that led to me remembering just where it was I left my mojo. On top of that, I received my swag from yet another Kickstarter yesterday; this time around it was the second bunch of ‘Heroines in Comfortable Shoes’ from Oathsworn Miniatures. And to top it all off I found out a few days ago that one of my friends has become a daddy, so all in all this little kitty has been in a good place just recently.
So today I spent several hours in a room with a bunch of other writers, talking about the writing process and coming up with various ideas for short stories as part of the Sheffield Sci-Fi and Fantasy Writers Group’s ‘Write a Book in a Day’ event, and you know what? It was actually a whole lot of fun.
I know it’s been a while since I last posted anything on here, but the simple truth is there’s not been all that much to say. Life has been rolling on as usual, and generally speaking not a lot has changed since last time I posted.
Another year is over, and a new one is just beyond the horizon, so I guess that means it’s time for me to write the obligatory New Year post looking back on the last twelve months and looking forward to the next twelve.
When I was first introduced to the wonderful world of wargaming back in the mid-eighties, I found myself immediately at a disadvantage against everyone else in my gaming group. Mainly this was because they’d all been collecting figures and wargaming for a while, whereas I was only just coming into the hobby, so I was basically starting from scratch. However, this did give me one advantage; I already knew which armies every one else would be fielding when I got around to choosing mine.
Just a quick post today. I was going through some of my old digital artwork and I found this map of the Old World that I made back in the early 2000’s for an aborted Warhammer campaign I was planning on running for a few friends and myself.
When I got home from work tonight there was lovely little surprise waiting for me. Well, maybe not that much of surprise, as I knew that it was being delivered today, but it was still a lovely little something to come home to. For today, I received my first delivery of orcs from Mirliton SG.
