Wow, this place is dead.
I should apologise. I wont because I’ve posted “sorry I stopped posting” posts so many times I made myself promise I wouldn’t do any more.
This is a little different. The blog has been derelict because I’ve been taking my life in a different direction. I’m a youtuber now! No. Really.
This blog was originally to showcase my writing, but last year I faced some hard choices. Writing wasn’t working. I didn’t feel like the same person I was when I started, and I didn’t have passion for fiction anymore. I can’t sit through editing a novel; I didn’t have the discipline. One day I might again, who knows, but what I did know is I couldn’t force myself to be that person. I wanted to try something new, a way to meet people and have fun, and talk about things that excite me.
Also, I was playing a lot of video games. So I made that my thing. I make Let’s Play videos and stuff here: www.youtube.com/owenadams
It’s small but growing, and I love the work I do. It has even got me wanting to write again. I want to script video game reviews and skits, I want to plan the work I do in more detail, but more than that, I want to write criticism, I love talking to my viewers about games. I want to write about them too. If possible, I want to do it for the rest of my life. I need a place to sharpen my skills, so this is becoming that place.
If you’re an old reader, don’t panic. The old posts aren’t going, though you’ll have to hunt for them. I’m just adjusting the front page to be more reflective of the work I do now, and the work I’m known for to most people.
That’s all for now, but I hope I’ll have something more to show for my efforts soon.
