Hello, humans. I know I’m interrupting your massive celebrations caused by my absence and apparent demise – but my death has been greatly exaggerated. Or at least a little exaggerated. I have, in reality, been feeling pretty shitty, and trying to get work done and helping out the people in my life that need takes all the energy that I have out of me.
I do find time for some games though! I’ve finished Divinity: Original Sin and loved every minute, and now I’ve launched right back into Divinity: Original Sin 2. These are both just prime examples of how to do so many parts of game development right. Crowdfunding, significant content stretch goals, quality product on release, and a deep and immersive RPG story. I love these games – I can’t say that enough. I’ve also begun a weekly ritual of fourplay coop games with my sons and friends which has been a blast.
My writing and journaling has been sporadic as my pain levels allow me to find the energy to be creative. My standup is much the same – whenever I can find it in my body to do an act, I’m trying to do so. It is so fun, and I’m glad I can still find energy to write and perform!
And work is still a love both professional and personal. One day maybe my love won’t break there, but heal full instead. It is the same person that can do both, so hopefully a matter of time!
