If anyone finds it, I’ll pay good money!

You may have noticed that posts are a little thin on the ground as of late.  I think I have managed, what, two or three over the past month?  I could make a whole bunch of excuses, but I guess it all really comes down to the following:

I feel rather inadequate as a player and a writer right now.

You know how in movies, people talk about having a crisis of faith?  You know, they suddenly realise they don’t believe in God/Buddha/the Staypuft Marshmallow Man/whatever deity they happen to believe in.  Well, since I am one of those evil cynical types who doesn’t have one of those faiths, my little crises tend to take the form of suddenly being unable to believe in myself.

I still will occasionally have a bright sparkling idea for a post.  A really incisive look at UIs, for instance.  Or a gritty post interrogating talent points (I have Shadowfury tied up to a chair, with my evil attack minions poking it with a fork as we speak).  Unfortunately, the minute I go to write the bloody thing, my mind runs out screaming “You don’t know what you are talking about, you moron!” 

Luckily for you guys, there are SO many Warlock bloggers now (seriously… to think I used to feel like I was the only Destruction blogger – there’s a zillion of them around nowadays, and for the most part they are bloody fantastic), so you don’t really need me to be writing that stuff.  You can find it elsewhere, and it’s all really solid content that is written in a much clearer way than I ever could.

So, until I can somehow start believing that I’m not a brainless twatwaffle with a verbal diarrhoea problem, posts might be a little… infrequent.  Or, there will just be lots of random drivel like this. 

Re-do time!

So, it comes down to the following:

My inner writer is emoing out like a 14 year old who just discovered black hair dye and razor blades.

I’ll get back to writing when my common sense returns.

  1. Whatever happens with your writing, I will support your decisions! We all need to put ourselves first sometime. I hope you find your mojo, if that’s what it is you want :)

  2. Saw ya tweet this and thought “Been there..”

    When I was writing about my Spriest there was numerous times I felt that I should write about x playstyle or y talents because I didn’t feel like I had enough experience with either to give a valid point. One thing I told myself was that this is my blog. Filled with my opinions on this and that. I may be wrong I may be right, but it will still be my way to the truth.

    One thing that was great was that if I did end up being wrong I used to get great comments correcting me which turned into discussions.

    I don’t know if that’s what you mean by feeling inadequate or not, but that’s what popped into my head.

    I’m sure you’ll get through it. :D Good luck finding your mojo.

  3. Remember that not every post has to be long, insightful, full of depth and wisdom. Sometimes it’s good to just post about whatever. A cool screenie from in-game. A picture of a high Recount report. A random thought about some quest you are working on in-game. A discussion about which class is better for AOE farming rhinos in Borean Tundra for chilled meat and rhino meat. Or whatever. Just write what’s on your mind, and don’t worry about how it sounds to everyone else. :)

  5. I’ve always enjoyed your writing, even when I didn’t play my warlock and therefore know what the heck I was reading sometimes :p

    So I’ll be waiting for the inner emo writer to get over it’s silly phase :D
