Plans for My Blog

So when I first started up this blog I really didn’t have any goals or plans for it.  I really just started it as an outlet for me to write about gaming, and my target was big gaming Youtube channels.  Watching some of the video’s that gamers post just drives me crazy, and I figured I would tell you why.  So I still plan on doing that, but that’s not what the focus of my blog is going to be anymore.

So my main goal for this blog is to improve my writing skills.  I have been away from writing for about 10 years, and it has really impacted my writing.  My grammar in particular took a hit, but I also feel I lost a little bit of my imagination which I had a whole lot of when I was writing in school.  As a Creative Writing student at Full Sail University, I am slowly getting back a lot of the things I knew, and learning a whole lot of stuff that I didn’t know, but I figure writing in a blog would help out a lot as well.

Now as pretty much everything that I will write about deals with gaming in some form or fashion I have several ideas and plans.  My main plan is to start a weekly short story, and this is how I’m going to do it.

At the end of the month a new game for PC is launching, and its called Sword Coast Legends.  For anyone who has played games such as Baldur’s Gate or Neverwinter it is much the same thing.  For those who haven’t, these games take place in the world of Dungeons and Dragons and everything your character does is based off the rules of the tabletop game.

What I plan to do with this game is this.  Every week a few friends and I are going to have a D&D night where we play Sword Coast Legends for most of the night.  It’s most likely going to be a Friday or Saturday night thing, so then the next morning I would spin whatever we did in game the night before into a story.  One of my friends suggested that I write from a Bard’s point of view so that I am not focused on one character but the whole group in general so I think that’s how I will do it.  By doing this I am hoping to improve my creative writing as a whole, and maybe to end up with a book out of all the exploits.

As I said before I have many plans, but the weekly story is definitely the biggest and I hope I can get a lot of feedback to help me keep improving.  All my other idea’s are mostly small right now so I won’t put them out just yet, but you should be seeing some of them within the coming weeks.  As always thank you for reading, and any comments, likes, and follows are greatly appreciated.
