Otto von Bismark famously said, “laws are like sausages, it’s better not to see them being made.” I suspect that independent novels also fall into this category, and so I must warn you that any romantic notion of the American fantasy author that you still hold is in great peril. Ignorance may, in this case, be bliss.
But for the brave and/or morbidly curious, I’m going to record my daily writing routine.
I’m a gamer at heart. I inevitably gravitate towards RPGs, board games, MMOs, and their ilk. Unfortunately, this primal urge often takes me away from things like getting enough sleep, minding my health, getting stuff done around the house, or my writing.
December was particularly unproductive; I consider myself faultless in that regard, because very few gamers could reasonably be expected to do anything that wasn’t Fallout 4 at the end of 2015. Still, I was disappointed with my output in a number of areas, and so I resolved to find an app or service to help me be more effective. I found so much more. I found Habitica.
