Touching Base

I’ve decided to put up a little something, as it’s been about a week since I last posted. However, I’m really tired for some reason tonight, so I think I’ll be brief.

I still want to write about some of my experiences driving. I just haven’t been able to get anything noted to move forward with that. When I’m driving, I can’t really make notes, and when I’m not driving (even as a passenger at work), I’m not thinking about it from the driver’s point of view.

I didn’t mention that a couple of weeks ago, I got a chance to play Dungeon World, an RPG that mixes OSR simplicity with d20 and Apocalypse World. The OSR and d20 portions don’t really do much for me, and again, I’m just a little tired to get into it too deep right now.

I’ve managed to read through all of the FATE books. I’ve enjoyed them a lot, and I’d like to review them. Again, I’m tired and not thinking clearly, so I’ll try to get back to that.

Finally, I received a lot of comments on Facebook regarding my last post. I feel a need to clarify something that came out in a couple of the comments. Primarily, what struck me is that it seems, even to my own eyes, like I’m talking about giving up drawing and illustration. I’m not, at least for myself, but I think I am going to take an extended break from even trying to draw, and I’m definitely going to stop looking for/at any kind of drawing/illustration work. That’s what I needed to put out into the world. I needed to make that real. I needed to tell myself to focus my energies elsewhere, rather than focusing on something that frustrates me in a bad way. We all know there is good frustration, but that’s not where I’m at with my art. Doing this has helped me come to some realizations as to what I’m looking for for work, which is really steadier part-time work, or work with downtime that I can use for my own creative projects.

Well, for now, I think I’m tired and done for now. Later.
