Thanksgiving

So, yet another Thanksgiving has passed us by. I spent a sizable chunk of time playing with Miss Dash and her doll Lucy. Jenny had to keep hurling herself at Miss Dash so that I could actually have time to visit my family.

We've been reading The Wonderful Wizard of Oz together. It's been great fun.

I had an interesting time listening to podcasts about freelance game writing. In short, I don't see that happening for me. It's not that I can't do it. It's that I just don't have my ground game in place and I would need to spend time getting that into place and that's not my current priority. One thing is certain, if I am able to jump that divide, it won't be dealing with WotC, not because I can't, but because the ground game for them is a significant learning curve. I just don't ever see ramping up to the point where I really know what's going on in the WotC world. Commercialized D&D is simply beyond me. I might be able to write for a brand setting, but there is absolutely no way that I can write for Forgotten Realms. The lore is simply too deep to fake and I don't give enough of a shit to learn it.

Who else could I write for? I just don't know. I don't even know how to get my ear to opportunity, or even get to know folks in the industry. Where are those ground opening opportunities? I just don't know.
