Back in the Saddle

When I hear this phrase, there are always a number of things that come to mind. The first is the wammy-ed introductory guitar solo preceding Steve Tylers scream in Aerosmith’s hit song Back in the Saddle. The other, stemming from that very song, is the title screen of Guitar Hero 3: Legends of Rock, which seemed to always have this song playing when I started that game up. And the most obvious thing that comes in mind is the brown leather saddle placed atop the horse and myself climbing back on top of it. Neither of these have anything to do with this post though I find that Aerosmith song reverberating through my mind as I sit here writing this.

So the main reason for this post is, well as you can gather from my lack of activity in the whole of September, to let you know that I am back. Apparently my writing went Greenday on me and woke up when September ended.

First things first (“I’m the realest” oh gosh I’m turning into Iggy Azalea), I am at a new job. Long hours, stuck in traffic, too lazy to write when I get home. I also can’t do any writing while I’m there since its so busy which leaves all my writing to the last few hours of the day. Sigh.

Although my blog has been scarce, I have been writing. I had the pleasure of writing 6 game previews for my magazine Gamecca as well as squeezing in a Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolutions review in there. You can check out the mag here: . I also had the pleasure of reviewing Planetary Annihilation for another gaming company – that was fun.

NANOWRIMO is coming up soon too so I’m planning out a novel. I know I failed last year but I’m looking to win it this year, and by win I mean write and finish the novel. 50 000 words here I come.

In the mean time, look out for some Daily Post stuff. I’m working on a little short thriller now about the airport so keep an eye out for that.

Well that’s about all the “Updates” I can squeeze in at Lunch time. Keep coming back for some exciting October-November write-athon starting today, prepping for NANOWRIMO.

Hit me up in the comments why don’t you?
