Calling The Muse...
It's Friday, so that means Friday Night Magic. Usually the store would be very busy, but I'm not so certain that tonight will be the case. Finals week at the local university has pretty much ended, and much of the student population has bolted town. As a store, we have a very strong local customer base, so summer doesn't affect us as much as it affects other places. We are quite lucky in that respect.
My game thoughts are still jumbling, but ideas are beginning to sift free. One thought I had was to attempt to refocus this blog to be less of the "fool in the sweater vest and tie" and more of a design journal aspect. What I am after with the design journal, though, is raw design as it happens. Instead of posting notes on design decisions and why I made said decisions, I want to just start typing game material into a blog entry, haphazardly, without any thought of why I am typing what I am typing. I want to let readers see creativity in a raw, unmasked, unfiltered, unedited form. The general idea would be to dedicate one day a week to designing a game. Using that time to put thoughts together into electrons, and letting y'all see the journey.
Is this something folks would be interested in?
