I feel a tad bad that for as much as I wanted Blaugust to happen deep down, I really didn’t do all the participation that I would have liked to in the event. It felt like there were tons of great bloggers out there keeping things exciting, though, so hopefully no one noticed that I’ll be ending up this month with only 18 posts (once I write the next one).
The thing about this is that it’s not that I wasn’t writing. It just that I was absolutely consumed by fiction writing for my RP blog. Just about every bit of creativity I had this month went into that, and I was having an absolute blast!
So, technically, I was writing far MORE than I usually do in a given month. It’s just not obvious when you only look at this blog.
I don’t know if that counts towards Blaugust? But, hey, I’m not going to feel too bad about it. When you’re inspired to write something in a specific way for a specific audience, you’ve got to take that inspiration and run with it. No buts about it.
Right now, I’m still heavily engaged in that blog, but I still have some topics I want to post up here in between things. I want to talk about our FC airships and, once I actually run The Rising, I want to blog about this year’s anniversary event.
I also have new goals to try and set for next month — we’ll see how far I get with those! The one thing I do know is that my interest and time in FFXIV has increased significantly, and I do not regret the choice I made to make a change in how I play.
I mean, what other server can you just be standing in your apartment, minding your own business, and get robbed?
