I love the new interface at Blogger Dot Com. I FINALLY was able to go back and edit some stuff for really bad spelling errors.

Happy Happy! Joy Joy!

More and more and more writing...

I am so trying to make up for the scattered updates I've posted here.

Well, as for those things that have been mentioned before, I am continuing to go to the Steadward Centre 3 times a week. Kate, one of the staff, has asked me to step it up a bit. Now, I'm to do 15 reps per set instead of 10. Did that for the first time today. Shit, the difference is unbelievable. I haven't felt that challenged since I started going there.

My website update has slowed down to a crawl, but with good reason. I am once again doing freelance writing work for Silverthorne Games. Can't divulge anything, but there will be several templated critters in their new product Template Troves I: Serpents, Spiders & Godlings, which is now due out in the middle of August, that I designed. Plus, I get to have my work associated with the great Sean K. Reynolds.

Hmm, I guess I'm not shy about talking about work related stuff after all. Anyway, on to other matters...

I haven't been updating my threads at EN World lately. I needed a break from all the posting I was doing in my Rogues Gallery thread. I do have a new CC2 map thread going but who knows how long I'll stay with that. More than likely I'll get back to it later on this month.

In reality, I've had an urge to write some fiction. Not story hour stuff, something new. However, anything I start will likely end up being posted at EN World anyway. Well, at least if it's PG. Heh!

I might try my hand at erotica again, don't know. And I don't think I'll be posting it here. Yet, then why would I write something steamy and then not put it some place where other can read it. I did have my old yahoo group but that didn't get used enough to be worthwhile.

Hmm, perhaps something more sci-fi related is in order. I could start working on updating Realmsian Dragonstar. Lord knows it's been forever since I worked on it. Sometimes I think the story has become this huge monster that I'll never be able to finish the way I want to. Yet, it is too compelling for me to abandon. I just need the right inspiration to contine the story. Then I'll go great guns for at least two months before I need to take a break.

Decisions, decisions...

Perhaps a Time of Ages story is the next best thing to working on Realmsian Dragonstar. I've always wanted to expand on the world concept by writing an ongoing story for it. Plus, I'm positive that such a story would include a link between the real world (or at least a facsimile of it) and Rielun. The question is how do I do this without it being cheesy!

Something to think about.

I have to remember to update my resume next week.

Well, that's all for today. If your out there, I'll talk to you again soon. (If I remember.)

Love or Kin

So I'm writing something here, simply to write.

This blog feels like it needs a theme, or at least some direction. Yet, I'm too scatterbrained to come up with something. I could write about personal issues, but that feels too much like venting. I've been 'porting over my poems from my website but that can't last forever.

Case in point...

Love or Kin
Copyright 2004 (C) Robert Blezard

Darkness surrounds her, the chill of the cascade binds her to her knees.
A soft glow rises from the water around her as she waits under moon.
He’ll be there soon.

Just as she closes her eyes, his huge, scarred hands clasp her shoulders.
Instantly, she is warm against the course hair that covers his body.
Her gentle love.

They are of different blood, divided by centuries of war and strife.
Mortal enemies for as long as both races have existed in this world.
Tonight’s their last.

He must fight for his lord on the morn, against the kin of his beloved.
Not even her love can save him from this day of bitter glory.
A death of honor awaits him.

He wishes to tell her his heart, but the words fail his simple mind.
She is from a different world, how could he ever make her understand.
Why, he must die.

She pulls him closer waiting for him to embrace her like every night before.
Instead he pulls away, leaving her to wonder why he has forsaken her.
He hears her cry.

She cries out and cries out for him, hoping he’ll return to her loving arms.
Yet he leaves her to her future, for they could never have been together.
Elf and Orc.

That leads into the idea of using the blog as a development journal for my D&D campaign settings and fantasy writing. Yet, that might be too complex for just one blog. And I'm not up for starting another one.

And I'm definitely not comfortable using it for any sort of business purpose.

I could use it to index links to websites I like. But I can just as easily do that with a standard HTML document.

I think I'm just going to wing it. Maybe write a series of article like journal entries about my life, with opinions and such. Who knows at this point. Lord knows the stuff I've written so far hasn't been all that compelling. Even for me.

Ah well, spilt milk and all that.

Time to close this post and start another one.
