The official shrine of Tim's e-peen.

Could success be beyond the door?

As one who follows me might know, I’ve been quite busy lately. This, however, is not a result of work or necessity; it is rather of my own accord. Recently, I’ve been training (Angela knows what I’m talking about) myself so that I may become a better writer. I’ve actually decided to put my creative writing on the back-burner for now, in favor of learning a more journalistic style of writing.

After lots of self-reflection, I decided to gravitate towards my passions – one of them being gaming. Those who know me know I’ve played video games for a long time, in fact, often longer than I’ve known that given individual. Combining two passions – gaming and writing – seems like a natural progression for me. As a matter of fact, I’m actually surprised I haven’t ventured further into this territory in the past. Aside from starting a blog on IGN, I’ve taken the initiative to volunteer as an editor at a start-up gaming site: thegamerstudio.com. It is there that I am training; learning to use my writing skills in a creative, enthusiastic, and more realistic fashion. The best part? I’m having a blast.

Even though I’m “working” more than I have in a long, long time, I feel more alive (if that makes any sense). While gaming used to be a way for me to kill time and escape the mundane-ness of normal life, I’ve turned this time-sink into something much more productive, but equally as entertaining. It’s almost as if I’ve found a job (albeit a non-paying one at the moment) doing something I actually enjoy. With this, feel I’ve entered a door. While I’m not sure where it’s going at this point, my instincts tell me one thing:

“Keep going.”

    Angela,

    Thank you very much for your enthusiasm and support! Although I’m not sure if this is ultimately the direction I wanted to go, I will maintain the course. Hopefully, I’ll still be able to squeeze out creative pieces, such as short stories, poems, and the like.

    Anyhow, thanks for visiting and sharing your thoughts and support!

    ~Tim
