Not so much dead, as dreaming...

I'm still here. Well, not here on this blog, where I totally haven't been in a long time. But here as in corporeal and on Earth and all that.

Mostly it's all because I had a big idea. This idea was followed by a number of other ideas, all of which pleased me immensely. We're talking plots and plans and schemes here, not abstract philosophical concepts. There have since been some of those too.

The short version is, I've been trying to put together a new video game venture. I'd fled the video game biz back when I sold out my interest in Cryptic and devoted myself to the novel-writing dream. And I then wrote a bunch of novels. Six of them in fact. And I'm writing a seventh (although I'll admit I've stalled out on that one in the last month, but I'm diving back in). I do love writing novels, because it's just about the only artistic endeavor I can undertake that lets me put my pure vision out there, unmediated and unrestrained. Also, largely unpaid. But it's still rewarding. 

But recently I dipped my toe back into the game design/writing field a little, and I really enjoyed myself. Then those ideas started coming. And then some other people had some even crazier ideas and now we're trying to put all those ideas together. Soon, we'll start talking to the world (the tiny part paying attention to us anyway) about it. 

So that's what I've been up to.
