The funny thing is that after I leave the 9-5 and start on my path home, my brain fills with all the things I should do. Being a creative person is difficult sometimes. I've also realized that I'm extremely good at deadlines. If left to my own devices I will figure out a way to procrastinate. Every time. However when something needs to get done, give me 2 cups of coffee and a half hour.
Another thing that crossed my mind sitting on the couch was the maps in my copy of Elemental Evil. The scan was terrible. I don't think it would take much to attempt to redraw all those maps. Print em off and start figuring it out. Another project! And honestly beats the crap out of sitting on the couch starring at my tablet.
Of course there's work to be done on my MF campaign, and I've also planned on working on the city of Yahleui (which I have to change the damn name). First step in that process is to create a map. I really want to attempt something similar to the Port Blacksand map, with naming streets and everything. Actually that book is perfect for fleshing out a city, and what little shops etc are in each district. With a set of d6s and a blank map I could pretty much get most of it done reasonably quickly. Of course adding a bit of inspiration.
I was talking with a friend lately about music, and I said "I hadn't really written anything lately, no songwriting muse". And he goes "why don't you write D&D songs". I laughed, but honestly could be fun! I mean who cares right? So that is also rolling around in my head. Speaking of, here's a interesting little drumloop I created. It's very NIN, which was the plan. I created it from industrial samples.
I always say "you only got so many hours on this earth". Especially when I'm involved in something that I don't really want to do. I need to remember to spend the time that I'm given on things that make me happy. So the 2017 mantra is "be creative".
