I’ve been wondering a lot about what I’m going to do on the blog next year. Some things have ended like ‘Bedlam’ and others really don’t work like interviews. I’m having a lot of trouble thinking up Ye Olde Shoppe ideas lately too. It doesn’t help that I’ve covered so many topics (some multiple times) that I keep running into copies when I check to see if I have a new idea. This means it’s going to get dicey for a bit.
On the other hand, I will be using Thursdays to put up sections of a book I wrote in high school and it’s sequel. These are the ‘Immortal Wars’ books and you’ll be able to see how different they are from what I do now. Might be good for a weekly laugh. Beyond this addition, I’m toying with a few other ideas:
- I have those 100 monsters for a possible series and I can occasionally make a post where I create 2-3 of them. I have none of them in mind right now. Thought about using some from Monster Maker, but they didn’t really sit with how I saw the adventure going. I’ll have to check to see if any can be used for that.
- There are plenty of ideas that I have, which I might share on the blog for some feedback. This would include that monster story and a variety of organization short story collections. Not so much an origin, but ideas that are currently in the mental workshop. (Mental Workshop might be what I call it.)
- Character origins is another topic, but I will have to go with those who haven’t turned up in books yet. It would be spoiler free, of course. This would include characters like Sin, Darwin Slepsnor, Ryusuke, the Project Phoenix crew, and a variety of others. This can also help me jog my memory on the ideas that I haven’t been able to touch on since the divorce started.
- Speaking of Project Phoenix . . . I might dedicate a month where the Fridays involve this series. I constantly have trouble with it because I can’t figure out exactly where I want to go. Many changes have been made and it’s absorbed several other stories like Savior, The Psi-Child Saga, Starlets, Rose of the Damned, Jack, Gearhead Princess, Experiments and Ninja Never Wins. Maybe this will be tackled next Sunday and I can get some focus on what to do next year. After all, I don’t have a plan for February and that’s a short month, so I can dedicate a chunk of it to this headache.
I’m always willing to take requests too. Beyond that, this is the plan. If you can call it that.
