I’ve decided to try putting up some of the little things I’m working on, since I seem to be unable to conjure up blog topics every week.
“Thank you for calling Bash, my name is Alexander, how can I help you?”
“I am Sir Harold of Misra and my sword isn’t working.”
“Ok Sir Harold, how isn’t your sword working?”
“It’s just not working.”
“Is it not cutting? Is it a flaming sword?”
“No, it’s not a flaming sword. And yes it still cuts fine.”
“Ok sir, so how is the sword not working?”

I may not have written as much as I’d care to over the past year or so of my hiatus, but you can bet your sweet bippy I haven’t been sitting idle either. Between 56 games, 15 shows or movies and 16 books, I’ve been consuming fiction like it’s going out of fashion.

Since I signed up for the A to Z Challenge, I never really considered putting a theme to my April posting. Reading what others have said and encouraged, I feel it’d be a good idea. What do I theme on though?
As part of my drive to improve my writing, both in quality and quantity, I’ve been trying to write every day. To this end, I’ve started producing content for a small RPG website. News stories to start, but hopefully I’ll start having columns, reviews, etc. to add to the growing site. It’s been interesting writing every day, especially since so many have been news story.
