    That's cool. Keep at it. I got a book from these guys who now have a massively successful self publishing brand. It's called, "Write, Publish, Repeat", and really opened my eyes to how successful you can be just doing it yourself. It's pretty jolly.

    On the gaming, I alas didn't have the kind of time I used to, but I find when I play I often get ideas almost like being in flow state.

    I have! I've toiled around with publishing a few smaller pieces before bothering to work on the bigger ideas kicking around in my head - stuff like flash fiction or short stories. Just so I feel more confident with any potential feedback I might get, and the like!

    A mixture of both! Right now I'm trying to focus on the consoles I own just so I can make a dent in that backlog, but every so often I come on here or sites like Kongregate and fart around for a while. It's a nice feeling - brings me back to my beginnings on this site when I had more motivation to try and compete for scores.

    Lately, though, I've been wanting to try and get better at the big name arcade games in terms of scoring wise - Donkey Kong and various SHMUPs. I need some sort of competitiveness in my life, haha.

    That's still great that you want to do that. Have you ever looked into publishing methods? I randomly found a pretty sweet book not too long ago that really opened my eyes to the possibilities out there.

    It's never a bad thing on the gaming. Do you primarily play your existing systems or prefer the online routes?

    Oh, very nice! I'm working on a novel myself -- well, a novel contained in several separate stories that all build into a larger universe. Think Asimov's Foundation or King's Dark Tower. Also procrastination, basically, but otherwise I'm trying!

    Oh yeah. Sad to say it's mostly what I do - though lately I'm working on my enormous backlog. Currently going through my numerous PS1 jRPG list. Grandia's up on the plate right now.

    I'm glad to hear it's been more ups than downs lately at least. I hope that trend continues for you. I've been doing good overall. Things have been crazy busy as is often the case, but going to right way. Still working on finishing up a novel right now, so that's fun.

    Do you do much gaming these days?

    It's been going! Lots of ups and downs - mostly downs - but things are starting to look back up very slowly but surely. Growing a lot, maturing. The usual. What about you, my friend? It's been a long, long while!

    Pretty good, what about yourself?

    And yes, I am. Thanks for asking.
