As the month began, I was feeling really good about the fact that I was celebrating 12 years of the Barking Alien blog.
At the same time, I was feeling really down that I didn't have much enthusiasm for anything game related. I was feeling creatively lost and uninspired even as I was looking back on over a decade of awesome RPG experiences.
In the end I'm a little bummed that this month didn't feature the kind of festive celebration I think the blog deserved and yet I am happy to have recharged my creative batteries thanks to the advice of good friends and a little time to decompress the year gone by.
I'd like to take this opportunity to once again thank everyone who came by and supported the blog and my endeavors. Before I go and talk about next month, I have a few additional announcements.
My good buddy Leo Jenicek has posted the final entry in his Arrondissement series. With 79 entries in total it is the length of a full blown novel, though it reads like a series of inter-related short stories for much of the first half of the run. I highly recommend checking it out.
While I'm at it - giving some love to my friends and fellow creatives - I would like to take a moment to direct your attention to this post by my pal of over 30+ years, David Concepcion, a talented fellow who has been mentioned on this blog a number of times. His most recent post talks about the 'Celestials', our once and future 'Knights of the Breakfast Table' High School of Art and Design RPG club that remain close to this very day.
