I have been largely absent from the blogosphere recently, and I hope to change that by getting back into it. I’d like to reiterate what I said at the beginning of the year: I have moved my focus from apologetics to fiction.
[Yes, atheists, I know one of you in the comment section of this post is going to say something along the lines of “How is that any different than what you’re writing now?” Ha, ha, ha, ha. It’s funny. And I beat you to it, so there.]
Anyway, long ago I started a blog that I intended to populate with free adventures for role-playing games (like Dungeons & Dragons). All I did was repost two adventures that I had already posted elsewhere online. And they weren’t even technically RPG adventures; they are expansions to a forgotten board game called Hero Quest. Those two were supposed to be a trilogy, and I did manage to post part 3 (which I had never completed). Those three would lead into a much larger adventure, which I promised to deliver next week. And two years went by….
That was supposed to be my start in the world of fiction, but like that promised update to my answers for God is Imaginary and Why Won’t God Heal Amputees, nothing ever came of it.
Then, as I was watching the gritty Thundercats reboot last year, I thought that I could do that. I could write my own gritty reboot of an 80s cartoon and publish it as a virtual seasons project. A year later, I finally selected the TV show I’d use.
So, what’s the problem? Barring that I just haven’t realized I suck as a writer and no one is mean enough to tell me, I’ve decided my problem is that I’m not disciplined enough. So, on that front, I’ve decided to write at least 2000 words every day. I’ve definitely surpassed that total today!
But, my focus is going to remain on fiction. I will still post here, but not nearly as often.
So, hopefully, the audience here would be interested in my other writing projects. In that case, look for more on that aforementioned virtual seasons project. My wife has seen some of my early writing, and she’s into it!
But, if you just have to have apologetics, I plan to keep on that. I’m thinking of a short series on the Bible’s teaching that there is only one God, apart from some contentions from our skeptics that it teaches polytheism. I’ve been given a few verses on Twitter that allegedly acknowledge the existence of other gods aside from Yahweh. I think addressing those would be interesting and informative.
