And, to put it into context, two things:
First, I haven’t played D&D in years.
And my character was a Teenage Mutant Kung Fu Penguin.
Yeah, I pitched that idea to my DM and he was like, “Sure, you can make that character.”
So, yeah, my weekend was dominated by making that character and having an all-day D&D session yesterday.
And just . . . zero regrets here.
I’m sorry that I don’t have a post and that I wound up publishing this super late, but to be totally real, I didn’t have anything to write about and my brain just totally overshot the point where I realized I had to post. I have made huge strides on Memory, my current WIP, but not such huge strides that I felt comfortable writing about it here. I would’ve at least written a “Something to Read / Watch / Play” at the very least, but I haven’t played, watched, or read anything new that was so amazing I wanted to recommend it.
So, all I will say here is please forgive me.
And also, my character was the Michelangelo of his group. Seriously, it was the most fun I’ve ever had playing D&D.
I will be back next week, possibly talking about how excited I am to be writing prose again.
But until then, take care, pet a cat and/or dog, and–for the love of God–play D&D. If you never have, seriously, try it–with the understanding that it just gets better with time. Seriously, your first character will be a super serious OC–an Elven knight betrayed by his king or something–but eventually, you’ll be like, “My new character is Hornswoggle. She is half gremlin, half cat, 100% Rogue, and she only drinks White Russians.”
