GenCon 2012

This past weekend saw us visiting the city of Indianapolis for the 45th GenCon! It shouldn’t come as a surprise that we had a blast. I picked up the up the last two sets we needed for Ascension plus a slew of other games that I’m looking forward to playing. (Descent, Small World, and Four Taverns to name a few.)

I also made sure to hit several of the Writer Symposium classes. These were very cool. Well, the Saturday 8AM class was a bit tough, but still enjoyable. Also attended Brandon Sanderon / James Sutter’s Worldbuilding class. This was a great discussion. I’ll definitely hit a few of these discussions again next year.

We also met Patrick Rothfuss! He was a really cool guy. We talked a bit about writing (thanks largely to my awesome wife because I was standing there awed) and he signed my kindle. Here is that picture:Patrick Rothfuss signed my kindle!We had a great time and I can’t wait to return next year!


Great personal milestones reached today.

As of today, I will surpass my word count goal for last year. I’m also at 75% of my goal for this year. Overall, pretty good progress as far as numbers go.

I think one of the downfalls of this relative break-neck pace (at least for me) is that I haven’t left myself much time for editing the work I’ve produced. It’s something I will take into account when I set the goals for next year.

Personally, I feel like my writing has come a long way. Though I realize there is still a long way to go. All I can do is…

-Keep Writing.
