My story, my tales, my life

I know it’s been a while

I know it’s been a while since I’ve last written here. I had my 30th birthday, which I’m still not quite over. Not that it was so exciting, but I hate the fact that I’m not a 30-something, hope my 30’s will be better than my 20’s though.

What have I been up to? Well, mostly reading, and not trying to kill myself (as I’m suicidal again). Also, I’ve opened up a defective xbox 360 controller to see if I can fit a raspberry pi in there and make it a retro-gaming console. I don’t know yet, but I have some plans in my head, only need to see if everything fits and such, but more on this later.

I’m also planning to participate in Nanowrimo again, after taking a few year sabatical, I’m finally ready to tackle such a thing again and write my ass off. Only need to get myself a notebook and I’m set (and maybe a kitchen timer). Also, I plan to get my ritalin and some sleep medication next month, so this will be the first november that I will actually will be able to focus and maybe complete the 50k, as it only happened once, in a 24 hour writing frenzy of which actually nothing was usable (combine ADHD and lots and lots of cafeine and you catch my drift. I was able to stay awake and write the 50k, but my mind was racing a lot and the cafeine crash almost left me incapable of doing anything the week after.)

Rory Cube Games: Story Boggle

You each take a piece of paper and a pen. You shake the die and put them in the box, so you get a nice 3 by 3 grid (or you just arrange them in a 3 by 3 grid). You need a kitchen timer for this one as well.
You set the timer for 25 minutes (one pomodoro) and you write a story based on as little as one die or all 9 die in the 25 minute span of the game. Each round is 25 minutes, if you are willing to play more than one round.
After this round, you each take turns telling your stories.
No points, no competition. Just innocent, creative fun.
Could be a fun game to play at a write-in during Nanowrimo.
