Man, I'm just swimming in projects at the moment. I've been told I seem to be the happiest when I'm busiest. Not sure, but I'm certainly enjoying all the work. I've got final edits for The Paladin coming up any day now (I'm waiting on a single beta and I wanted to give them just a little more time), I've got the short story I'm working on, the next story in The Paladin series, my friend over at Smash Fiction has expressed interest in me doing some editing work for him, I just got brought on by C+ Studios to film and edit their podcast, oh! And I finally found something I've been looking for forever!
While searching around at Bookman's yesterday I finally found a copy of Terry Pratchett's The Color of Magic. Now, I only have two experience with the Discworld series: 1. Smash Fiction had a match involving one of the wizards from said series and B) one of my favorite YouTubers Pushing Up Roses did reviews/playthroughs of the two Discworld games. Both were lovely glimpses into the world that convinced me I really needed to get the first book and dive on in. And now, finally, I have it!
Jeez... I can't remember the last time I was excited to actually dive into a new series. Still, it's always good to make sure you have something to read while writing. I've been told that reading helps you keep perspective. Plus, I mean, no one would step out into the world and attempt to play concert piano without listening to the greats from time to time.
Oh! And I completely forgot I'm still doing my game reviews as well as hosting two table top campaigns on a semi-weekly basis. Jeez... now that I write it all out, I do have a lot on my plate. And once the semester begins anew, I'll likely return to the university to help shoot and teach new, budding journalists how to shoot and edit.
So lots on my plate, but I'm a big guy; I'm used to full plates. Let's line everything up and start tackling them one by one.
Don't Forget to be Awesome!
Keep your eyes open for my debut novel, The Paladin.
