Carpe Blogiem: Author, Patreon, and Blog Highlights – June 2023


Authorial Highlights

  • I am still considering what long form fiction thing I want to write.
  • GURPS Whatchamacallit is in the fridge for now. I might write two subsystems at some point. Depends.
  • The Fantasy Trip Quick Quest “The Gallery of Hands” is done and remains in the hands of Steve Jackson.
  • I’m wrote another article for Hexagram for The Fantasy Trip. That’s done. I’ve decided to just write a new article every 3-4 months and submit them.
  • The contract for the GURPS supplement I’m writing with J. Edward Tremlett has been executed and we’re off to the races! We’re calling this one “GURPS Visage-22“.
  • There might be another project I’m working on. But I can’t say more than that at this point.
  • I’ve worked five months with Haptic writing for the company’s blog. It remains fun. I did four posts this month. Next month is five posts. But better: I’ve been offered a position as their community and social media manager and I’ve taken it.
  • I currently have five outstanding contracts/jobs: a Hexagram article, a TFT Quick Quest, four blog posts for Haptic, GURPS Visage-22, and GURPS Whatchamacallit.
  • Total wordcount for June was 50,427 words.
  • Total wordcount for July is I hope going to be 40,000 words.

Blog Highlights

  • Blog entries have been around 0-1 per week.
  • Working on doing a facelift for the blog. Still not completely satisfied with it at the moment.
  • Wrote a handful entries.

Patreon Highlights

  • Patreon remained on track for the month. Still releasing them to schedule.
  • I gained 1 patron and lost 7 patrons. 1 patrons modified their pledge (upward).
  • No fiction again.
  • Get the July FREE SPECIAL here.

Miscellaneous Related News

  • Aeon hit some hiccups thanks to a combination of storms, power outages, and ISP outages. I think we’re back on track. I hope so.
  • I have continued to work on my new campaign. I remain ahead of projections – by a lot. Player engagement remains pretty high too for the fact that it’s not even begun yet and won’t for months.
  • I continue my learning in the Virginia Board of Workforce Development program. I’m now into Phase Three and it’s going really good.
  • I played a lot of Diablo 4 – not as much as I thought I would. Too many ideas for work and game kept intruding and I’d have to stop to write them down to get them out of my system. Ah well.
