I can't believe that it is already December, this year has vanished in a hurry. Had a pretty good Thanksgiving last week, was nice to get a few days off to relax and catch up with friends and family, but as usual I am having a hard time getting motivated to go back to work this Monday. Been travelling for work as well which is never fun, especially now that we are starting to get snow and more winter weather. Starting tomorrow I'll be on the road for a few hours most of the week for work, so not sure how much I'll be able to get done writing wise here in the near future.
Mass Effect is finally finished up. I managed to polish off the 3rd and final game last week before Thanksgiving. I have mixed feelings on the series after the whole play through, but I won't really get into it here. It was an enjoyable trilogy, though I felt the overall feeling and effect of each game declined with each new chapter as the combat and feel of each game turned more and more into a first person shooter, and less of a role playing game. I have quite a few more screenshots to post detailing my adventures in game, so look for those soon.
On the writing scene I am sort of helter skelter right now and motivation is a bit low for various reasons, probably just the weather and being busy with everything else. It certainly doesn't allow for a lot of free time at night to write or do fun things. My main focus right now is to get Crimson and Shadow Samurai to the point where I can try to do a Christmas story with them, but I also have a lot of other things on my plate that I am trying to work on. Early 2014 will probably just be spent trying to catch up on things, including a third major story with Crimson and Empress and a few other fun alternate universe tales. Also I really want to get back on the origin series I started awhile back, to show how Crimson became a heroine in the first place and worked her way up. Lots to do...and so little time.
Anyways, hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving holiday. I am just trying to make it through these next 2 1/2 weeks until we go on vacation for Christmas for a little time off. Stay tuned!
