With work kicked into high gear since the departure of two friends, this week’s IT CAME FROM NETFLIX! has unfortunately been delayed. I do, however, have some good news to share related to my nascent career as a writer.
I responded to an advert from Polymancer Studios which said they were looking for writers and would-be writers for a new publication related to tabletop gaming. I suggested a column about creative DMing, full of tips for the guy or gal behind the screen aimed at keeping things exciting for the players, from villains with deep motivations to the inclusion of politics in the lands through which the players travel. Polymancer liked the idea, and contacted me about coming aboard as a regular columnist.
Now that alone would be enough to excite me, but then Sandra from Polymaner said this:
I looked over your blog “The Blue Ink” and I liked what I read, would you consider writing for one of our fiction publications as well?
Would I? You bet your ass I would.
I looked through my little bits of fiction, teased out possible ongoing plot threads and character growth and finally settled on Captain Pendragon. Sandra showed it to the others at Polymancer, and…
We like your idea and would love to see this serialized as part of Polygraff’s content. How does that sound to you?
So, yeah. Watch this space. Good things are happening, slowly but surely.
In other news, if anybody wants to sketch the characters or settings in the aforementioned story, feel free. I can picture these folks and technology in my head but I can’t draw to save my life.
