Getting back into the swing of things, there is a lot on the horizon. Dungeon mastering is a labor of love that I look forward to all week until I get to see the friends on Friday evenings. I have gotten back into some writing, both for the campaign and for my own literary adventure, though the interesting part of writing is trying to make something new and interesting to read without using the same tired cliched tropes all the time. More than a story, I have been focusing on fleshing out the characters that inhabit my tale and trying to let the characters that I develop live through and choose their own experiences right now (my brain is a crowded place these days). I recently marked another birthday, a very enjoyable day spent with some of my most favorite people. I like measuring time by birthdays over New Year's Days as it feels more like I have a little private time to myself as I reflect and prepare for the future. I have often freaked out and floundered over all that I felt inspired to attempt each year, but I almost feel like I have a better hand on things lately. I feel tempted to start recording a vlog, to give myself another wonderful outlet for myself and perhaps a chance for my words to reach another and let them resonate for them. I have felt better after hearing certain things being said by complete strangers, thus easing the pain and worry that I might be alone in feeling a certain way. Recently, much of life has been less "maybe I should" and fair share more "why the hell not, only get one life" crazy optimism. I am getting more confidence in my storytelling and sharing my feelings, hopefully it will spread to other outlets (music, drawing).
That's all for now, time to chase a passion or two!
