Making a Game to Get Read

Making a Game to Get Read

I think a lot of people might wonder why I want to learn to program.  It seems like a big jump from working at being an author to working at learning to code, but I don’t think they are as far apart as people think.  Learning to program is also something that is not far removed from things I have been doing for years, from things I have been interested in since I was a kid.

I’ve been building and maintaining websites since I was a teenager, doing some basic HTML here and there, CMS systems like WordPress helped remove me from the ‘code’ side of things but there is still some work to do in that space when you own a website (or two or three).  I was just doing copy paste code though, I want to actually learn how to do these things on my own.

Hiatus

Hiatus

For anyone that follows me here, or on twitter or even on my facebook page you’ll notice I’ve been on a bit of a break.  A break from posting, a break from tweeting, instagramming, all the other social ‘ing’s’.  I’ve been on a bit of a hiatus.  For a few reasons, some to do with ‘real life’ and some to do with a touch of burnout.  It just feels like there are not enough hours in the day anymore and I don’t know where they all go, so I needed to let some stuff slide.

Finding a Reason

Finding a Reason

Finding a reason for what I do is probably the most difficult thing for me.  Difficult because the reasons are not always something easily visible, or even things I think of beforehand.  Difficult because I often forget (or lose sight of) the reason I’m doing something.  I have a lot of things that I take on, different projects and ideas and hobbies I pursue.  Sometimes I get lost in the weeds and end up unable to do anything, sometimes I forget the reason I do anything.  Sometimes it all falls apart and I forget what’s important.

Living the Dream

Living the Dream

Over my life I’ve had many dreams, goals, desires, whatever you want to call them.  For the longest time it was my dream to serve in the military, that didn’t work out due to a medical denial.  It’s always been my dream to be an author and I guess I’m living that dream now (I have written a few books).  I’ve also had the dream of buying a plot of land and living off the grid, and I’m working on that dream as best I can.  There have been many others over the course of my life, from dreams of climbing Everest to dreams of hiking hundred mile treks.  Some I’ve fallen out of love with and others I’ve doubled down on.  One thing I realized though is that in order to ‘live the dream’ I need to take action, I need to always be living the dream.

Getting Distracted

Getting Distracted

It’s been a crazy few days in my world.  I’ve been super busy but somehow managed to get nothing done, I’m behind on my post writing, my Book Collector Club posting, my novel writing, my fitness, basically everything.  The problem is that I’ve been horrifically distracted with other projects, new projects that excited me before I realized how much time I was sinking into them and decided that I need to refocus on what I’m doing now.
