I’ve been busy writing, and playing a game online called World of Tanks.
Yes, I play online games sometimes, and this one currently has me hooked.
I just rewrote chapter one, however, in an effort to make my protagonist, Captain Sarah Dayson, more lovable, more easy to identify with, and more real.
So I haven’t stepped too far away from the blog, and I haven’t stepped away from the book at all. I find in rewriting I’m cutting away a lot of the cool stuff that I research, as it’s often fluff and not story. So as I get back to writing story, the blog will be the benefactor of my research, or “fluff” if you will.
I also seem to have a natural affinity for shooting people in armored vehicles. World of Tanks is basically, when you boil it down, an arena. Two sides, 15 tanks on a side. I, my friends, appear to have a bit of tactical ability. Who knew? It’s really simple as a game, you just aim, shoot, drive, and occasionally die.
Here is my best game so far. I killed over half the opposing team myself. I have to confess, that was the high point of my week emotionally. How sad is that?
Sweet victory, who knew thy name was anti-tank round?
