Existing in 2020

Today’s the day I officially resolved to stop including the phase “regularly blogs” on my resume for freelance writing applications.

I won’t be too hard on myself. I’ve been keeping very busy. Lots of game writing credits for Cubicle 7’s Wrath & Glory and Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Soulbound, which are absolute dream jobs. Hopefully more freelance gigs, community content supplements and self-published games are on the way. And bearing in mind I’d never roleplayed online before this year, I’ve adapted to gaming in this new medium with enthusiasm. I’m playing with people now I’d probably never get in the same room on a regular basis, and that’s wonderful.

Besides, it’s 2020. It’s a worldwide pandemic. This is the year of being kind to yourself.

Whilst I’m here, I’ve made a couple of changes to the site. The “About” and “My Games” sections have now collapsed into a single “Resume”, so it’s a bit easier to see my freelance credits in a list. And now there’s a face to go with the name!

And at some point I want to do another post about Ferrymen, my 8-year spanning, hard sci-fi Fate Core game. We finished the campaign last weekend, with my first face-to-face session in six months (in a large, well-ventilated, air-purified, socially distant play space). Right now, I’m not sure what to say about it – I have a lot of feelings! But I definitely want to try and record something for posterity, when I have the words to express myself.

So that’s me – struggling with the Year of Plague like everyone else, but still roleplaying and still writing. How are you?
