I’ll write this post anyway, even thought there hasn’t been any notable SQUEE-ing done on twitter, like I asked.
Once an addict always an addict I suppose. There are days where the urge to play is pretty damn strong, and when I mean strong I mean GET THE FUCK OUTTA MY WAY I NEED TO SLAY SOME INTERNET DRAGONS!!!!!!!!!! The way I usually quell such an urge is I find myself on MMO-Champion going through all the Mists news which doesn’t really help the cause, just makes it stronger. After I’ve gone through all the new on MMO is start reading some of the forum posts on how people think WoW is dead, blah, blah, blah. Finally I find my way onto this here blog and I go through my teenie-tiny blogroll which isn’t enough. I go through all the blogs on it, am outraged that the authors haven’t been bothered to update with a new post since the last two hours I’ve read their posts. By the time I reach the end of my blogroll I curse myself for not having more blogs. I begin whoring myself out on other people’s blogrolls. Windsoar from Jaded Alt, Vidyala from Manalicious and Rades from Orcish Army Knife has a pretty fantastic one. Has TONZZZZ of blogs and they move to the top of the list depending on how recently a new post has been released. AMAZING! I read through those precious lines of font about the journeys in Azeroth as if a crack addict is snorting lines of cocaine. By often times even that isn’t enough! There was one time that the craving got so bad I had to turn on my old lug of a computer (I deleted WoW from my laptop) and play on the free to level 20 account. But it isn’t the same. Is it too much to ask for a person to take a video of them playing WoW? Just doing dailies or something? Preferably as an elemental shaman that happens to be a draenei? No? I didn’t think so. I’d be happy to say that I’ve filled the void with another game but honestly…. I haven’t. I replayed my Pokemon games. I redid Pokemon White and Pokemon Leaf Green (although I’ve only made it to Island Three, Berry Forest). I haven’t even had the slightest interest in picking up D3, I guess that’s because I haven’t played D or D2. Maybe if they make an MMO out of them like they did with Warcraft I would. Long story short, I’m completely better off without WoW………… right.
I should mention that while my life has been spiraling into a downwards turn of WoW-withdrawals and the like I have been productive on other fronts. From my last post you probably know (if you A. read it, or B. remember it) I’m working on rewriting my book. Which I must say is going amazingly. I’m actually proud of this version. The previous version had 30 chapter and was approximately 72,000+ words. I worked my ass of throughout May and I managed to get to chapter 24 thus far. The word count currently is 75,000+ words, I’m expecting to reach 100,000 words by the time I’ve finished. I also plan to start trying to publish fairly soon after completion. Writing has it’s ups and downs (thankfully more ups), it was just the other day that I wrote in a new character (one that wasn’t in the first version) he’s a little boy of the age of four, you know the kind of character. One that is on SPEED!!!!!!!!!!!!! and bounces off the walls, has no societal filter so whatever pops into his brain, pops out of his mouth? When initially wrote little Mateo to mean a tragic end, you know to invoke the readers sympathy yadda yadda. Well it turns out that I liked this little character SO much that not only is he going to live, I’ve decided to write a new chapter (chapter 24.5 if you will) just so this character gets more page time.
That’s it for now I guess, I totally had a good ending for this post I assure you but as I was posting the picture of the piglet, it deleted this post so now I have to remove this post from the trash and rewrite the ending. I think it went something like this: I’ve been thinking about starting a reading/writing blog (the tone/voice of it would be must like this post) so if you’d be interested in following me there I’d love to hear it. To reward you for reading this post I’ll leave you with two presents the first is that bastard but adorable piglet that made me write my ending and the second is a cute elephant-let.
