another writing gig

Filed under: Geek,RPG,Writing — apotheon @ 10:45

In addition to being the primary name on TechRepublic’s IT Security column, I have another (semi-)regular writing gig now. I’m not on an actual schedule at Troll in the Corner, but the idea is for me to write as close to once a week there as I can reasonably manage amidst the rest of the doings in my already overburdened schedule.

As of today, my first article at Troll in the Corner has been published: Finding Inspiration for NPC Concepts. Hopefully you’ll like it as much as the enthusiastic first commenter did.

I have vague plans in mind about topics for other articles soon, including a stat block and description for a new critter, some stats and background for NPCs in support of a module, and maybe an overview of what niche Pathfinder RPG fills.

I’ve been kicking around the idea of starting up an RPG-focused Weblog of my own, but I don’t think I’d get around to it any time soon, and might not maintain any kind of writing schedule at all, so a gig writing for someone else will probably prompt me to write more often and has already prompted me to start writing much sooner than I probably otherwise would have started writing. So . . . there.

  1. I’ve actually been wondering why we don’t hear from you too much here anymore. Other stuff going on, bored, or just fresh out of stuff to write about? I have those problems with stuff I’m not paid to write, I have lots of ideas sometimes, but the motivation just isn’t there without some sort of incentive attached, whether it be feedback from more than the same three people every time or a paycheck or whatever.

  3. Justin James:

    I’ve been busy — really busy, including being too busy for much inspiration. In fact, it has been a challenge keeping up with my TR schedule lately (though I’ve managed so far anyway). I may also be in the midst of a sort of dry period anyway, for personal writing, but it’s kind of difficult to tell behind all the “too busy to think about it” that’s layered on top. I should be getting more of a handle on it in the near future, though (hopefully).

    Sterling:

    Thanks much! It should be fun. Alas, I know Troll in the Corner is a little outside your interest area, so if you want a fix of my writing that might not be what you’re seeking. Hopefully I’ll be able to do something about that soon, though, as I get my schedule back under control.
