Happy Thor’s Day
Hey, it’s been a while since I did a regular The Rabyd Skald post. Unfortunately, the time of year is difficult so mostly it is The Grey and The Wayfarer when I do one of these. But today if you are a regular you noticed that no post dropped at 9 am and that was no accident. This a change I have been wanting to make which is to start dropping posts in the afternoon.
There many reasons for this:
- I often find myself rushing as I get ready to be at work and sometimes a post just needs a little more loving care before it drops, but I skip it so I can go to work and just let it drop. This will allow me time to do a little love editing on each of my children known as posts, and then they will be a little cleaner and better.
- Traffic for my posts is actually statistically better for posts I drop in the afternoon instead of the morning. I get more engagements at least.
- I would feel better if I gave every post one last look right before it drops which given my work schedule, the afternoon is the beat time to do this.
So starting today with this post, my posts will drop at 4 pm. The one exception is on Sun’s Day which will still be The Pagan Pulpit at 10 am. The reason for that is personal – I used to start the service and preach in my former church at 10 am. So I preach from a little different pulpit these days at the same time. For you pagans out there that used to be Christians, it is probably better understood. Kind of a middle finger to my former ‘friends’ of that church.
Fuck You Haters!!!
Other Writing Notes:
I know I have promised this before but more fiction posts are coming. The Rogue Wizard has been difficult to write at this moment for personal reasons as well. I am thinking it will be better after the summer is over or the next chapter is finished. In that chapter I essentially destroying most of the visages of what was the past in that series idea and moving on. It is hard to do from an emotional point of view. Try destroying something you put a lot of love into so you can move on, and then tell me something about it. Until then you don’t have a clue.
When I do start my short story writing I will probably be doing alternative and very adult versions of Grimm’s Fairy tales. Poetry has been rough or the same reason as The Rogue Wizard. Poems are very emotional for me and have an automatic connection with someone that I can no longer have contact with but the memories of them surface for me every time I write a poem. Fall I might be able to muster something.
I have another post I want to write about using Role Playing Games as an inspiration but I might do a series very similar or The Adventures of Ayn Jones. Something I did a long time ago taking the character creation process of a Megatraveler Character and bringing it to life with a very complete backstory. I might very well use Megatraveller again to do this because it is Science Fiction.
Well, that is all the writing notes for now. Don’t be surprised if another The Grey and The Wayfarer drops soon. When The Grey builds to a point I have to write about it to deal with it.
One last note, there will be no Odin’s Eye today. I have a lot of refitting and resting to do before the next couple of weeks.
