So I finally convinced my registrar to let me move (honestly, going through the process made progression attempts on Kael'thas look easy, least he follows some sort of plan)!

Is now associated with this blog, nothing else changes, the 2ndnin.blogspot.com still works, as does the feedburner, so no need to update anything if you don't want to.

Anyway, will post more later, kindof lost for words at the moment, been trying to write a book.

Writing a book? Now you're making me curious...

Is it WoW related?

2ndNin said...

Nah, not this one.

Generic fantasy novel #6,000,901,123 :P, just a story I thought of and wanted to get down, have the plot roughly worked through and need to get to getting chapters written down and stuff.

Not really sure what a WoW book could be on, and more to the point one that would be of interest that I could write, most of my posts are kindof random :P

Oh I've got a pretty clear picture. I'd love to read - or for that sake - write - a novel about guild life. About what a player experience and the people he/she meets during one or several years...

There are SO many stories to be told, so much of laughter and tears and love and disappointment and betrayals and personal development and social interaction... you name it!

Perhaps someone's already writing it, what do I know.

Likely they are, but I am not sure how interesting that would be, would anyone actually want to read about what has happened in the time I played WoW, or would they rather hear about other things, its quite hard to really tell (and at the moment hard to really write content that doesn't refer to the Beta or irrelevant mechanics :P).

Maybe its time to find out.

I'm not talking about a biography, it should be fictin, inspired by things you've seen in the game. But of course you need a good story and good portrying of people. Just that it's about the game isn't enough.

Works of fiction I could probably do, the tale of an addicted gamer, losing himself (herself) in the game world, losing connection with reality and wondering where real life ends, the virtual world begins, and the overlap between the two.

I actually saw a cool advert while I was in Finland, think the message was "get out more" but essentially a guy starting to see the game world when he went out, confusing his reality with the game. Could be an interesting book if done right, the overlap between the real and virtual worlds, and actually getting lost in them, you becoming your character and them you, acting out in the real world as you would in game, and trying to make sense of the game world from a modern perspective. I know its been done in various guises, however it always seems badly done in most overlaps that I have seen, and considering how addictive wow is (many other blog posts on it) I think it could be an interesting story, going either along the psycho route, or the route of how to differentiate what is real and what is not, when we are playing with real people in a fictional world, yet most of us probably admit that we play and spend a lot of time treating it more like irc than a game.

mmmh...
