Write On!

One downside I've discovered to blogging is that when you write something every day, it begins to cut into the time available for writing actual resources. So today, I'm going to focus on moving a couple of different projects forward.

1) Getting more material assembled for Knockspell #6 and writing my own part(s) of it
2) Layout on the Core Rules and possibly an illustration
3) Adapting a new FGG module from Pathfinder to Swords & Wizardry
4) Possible working on a re-structuring of my module "Drinker of Ships," which seems to have too railroady a beginning but will require a fair amount more writing to change (it was originally based on the "characters start in a bad situation" concept).

Obviously, I don't expect to finish anything, but I need to push the field forward instead of spending too much time working on a blog entry.

Stay tuned, though!


  1. Is that a 1d4 table, or is it "all of the above"?

  2. Your blogging output has been quite prolific - more than two a day during March and heading to that number in April.
    I've got my own blog where I have deliberately slowed myself down to one entry every two or three days. This allows time for other stuff and also I feel less prone to "burnout" where I might run out of ideas (or enthusiasm).
    I've got 10 or so entries as drafts, waiting to be published. These are written when I've got a great idea or have plenty of time on my hands, and I can publish them when I don't have time for my blog.
    Of course, this is your blog, not mine, so don't let me (or anyone else) tell you what you should do. I'm just saying what is working for me.

  3. Familiar problems. Although in my case, it was less about posting and more about a sudden burst of activity in my other hobby.

  4. Wot, no S&W Goblin Market on the horizon ???

  5. You might want to add this to your list of stuff to deal with:

    Someone posted the entire Quick Primer as a web page on their site, and they acknowledge it is without permission.

  6. @ Matthew, yes, I've known about that for a while. They say they'll take it down if an author notifies them, but conveniently give no contact information (at least, not last time I checked).

    I'd let them post it, actually, if they just posted it as is, but they surrounded it with illustrations from other editions, IIRC.

  7. Ah - figured it out and sent them an email.

  8. As a reader, I actually prefer blogs that have 2-3 posts per week. I'm much more likely to actually read all the posts than to resort to the "mark all as read" button.
