Winner of the 2011 NaNoWriMo after taking part in '07, '08, and '09. Came up a bit short in 2012 after a huge sprint (my problem was beginning one novel, then starting another, plus life got in the way).
I am a former radio broadcast journalist, former desktop publishing instructor, a production manager of a small West Central Saskatchewan weekly newspaper, and transitioning to work for a weekly newspaper in a small North East Saskatchewan city. I currently moved more north easterly, and am a production assistant in the city of Humboldt.
I write, and have an opinion (but then, we all do, I believe). I’m creative in that I enjoy writing, and I enjoy taking photographs. I’m not a professional photographer, but I feel there’s enjoyment in something as wonderful as a photo. I own no cats, but I’d like to (I live in an apartment, and there are rules against pets like cats and dogs in apartments, and I’m not a fish person). Plants die around me, unless I have a mother-in-laws tongue, which requires low maintenance and are quite good at cleaning the air.
The following is information about the three story properties I have been working on, two of which have been published works.
So, yeah, I’ve been playing a lot of Guild Wars 2. My main character is already level 44 (highly disappointed that I didn’t realize the new hat I have can’t be used until level 45). There are a great number of reasons why I love this game. From crafting, to the design aspects of the characters, to the fact you don’t need to buy more dyes to recolour your armour. But one thing I did notice is the music. Jeremy Soule composed all of the music for Guild Wars 2 (just as he did for Guild Wars) and I came to realize something. The music reminded me a lot of another game, which was also composed by Jeremy Soule. A game I’ve played since it’s release in 2002. Neverwinter Nights.
The music in Neverwinter Nights was very encompassing, and I’m one of those players who likes the music in a game (because it’s part of the game, people worked hard to add it in). Guild Wars, Guild Wars 2 and Neverwinter Nights had music that matched the atmosphere of the world, and add to the epicness that surrounds it.
