I’ll start this post by giving all veterans a pat on the back.
I would say thank you for you service, but it’s a throw-away platitude at this point, something one could find on thousands of Facebook posts or memes. Instead, I encourage everyone to take time and reflect this Veterans Day.
Ask a veteran about their service. If they’re a combat vet, be respectful of what they’re willing to share.
I’ve continued to edit, edit, edit, and while that’s an important part of the process, I haven’t completed as much new work with my writing as I would like. I may have to sharpen my spork. Or I could switch utensils or tools.
This past week was also productive on the board game side of things and that took a bit of my time and attention.
I made the finishing touches on “No Jack” and wrote the rule book for “Nuclear Harvest.” That rule book took a good two or three days to complete, so this was a very productive week for board games and writing a rule book is still writing. I’m counting it as both. Both games are at good places, well on their way to being submittable next year, but the big news comes from “Wildflowers.”
A board game agent—I didn’t know they existed before a few months ago—has picked up the game and plans to pitch it to large publishers in the coming months. I’m keeping my fingers crossed, but I can’t help but be a little excited. I hope to see “Wildflowers” on shelves next holiday season. The year after that may be more realistic.
That’s all I have for this week. We’ll be back tomorrow and the rest of the tomorrows this week with some new writeups. Be kind to one another and stay geeky.
