PostSubject: life outside WoW?   Thu Oct 08, 2009 4:47 pm

"Blasphemy!" i hear some cry... but it does exist and its not just where we trudge to work/ school or grab a few hours sleep and a little food between running around in Azeroth.

So, what do you do?

Currently, I'm catching up on all the books that I've not had time to read while i was playing.

Fristly, i'm reading H.P. Lovecraft's Necronomicon one story a night to make it last as long as possible Very Happy

I've also just read the Wizard's First Rule and the Stone of Tears by Terry Goodkind.

I only happened across them because i'd started watching The Legend of the Seeker on the Sci-fi channel (mmm, Craig Horner and Bridget Regan make it very good to watch Wink ).

And last but not least, me and Vex have been trying out Fallen Earth which, for us, has the great bonus of being -very- different from WoW Smile

So...what do you lot get up to when not in WoW? Very Happy

Weird, I never saw a topic like this in the random carp forum ;p
I play volleybal 4 times a week and I'm pretty busy doing that.
I'm internetting a lot; MSN, Hyves(dutch myspace spinoff) and wowwiki (OMG WOWLORENERD!)
Friday and saterday I looove to go out and just dance my head off..

So, volleybal, school, internet, parteeey!
Books are nice when I'm in bed.. Mostly detectives and fantasy..

Can I please add my life-quote:

"Let us dance in the grainfields, wearing wild flowers and magical dust in our hair"

Vex, you clearly need to have some input on Vyp's reading list. Can I suggest:

Clearly she must have gone insane with the lack of wow, this 'life' outsied wow you speak off has never been dwelled apon, tis merely a myth! This 'life' is , in my theory, the afterlife, those who leave never return..

That's not true. Resurrection from the life is a clearly established fact in WoW!

Lord knows ...

I proscrastinate about books. I think about documentaries I'm going to make. I research stories. I swim. Search for a good (Chinese) tai chi club. Meet nefarious gentlemen. Give my liver a rest from Martinis. Plan on getting onto a ship in the Gulf of Aden. Sell or resell stories. Do things with my son and partner. Go to family events. Reflect on a life well lived.

The thing I miss, occasionally, is people: I spend a lot of time on my own, working and thinking. That's why I enjoyed WoW: a game I could play on a Mac (yes, us creatives eh?) and where I could, through the miasma of spit, emo rages and teen angst, could occasionally meet other interesting people Wink Like the good Vex and Vypra here.

Heh, I've read the whole set of 11 books from Terry Goodkind's 'Sword of Truth' series. Bloody good books, one or two slightly disappointing... and he was in an awful rush to finish the story in the last book... Finding it difficult to get into the tv series. Sitting back and watching it as opposed to being IN it is too weird... And I can't stand the actor they got to play Zedd. That bloke looks like Lurch... Richard should be big, broad and sandy haired. Not scrawny and dark haired. : /

I'm (trying) to write a sci-fi novel, but after 119 pages (and still loads of story to write down) finding inspiration is somewhat lacking atm. Besides that I just watch tv. Razz

In the summer I head out storm chasing with a mate if anything with any potential kicks off.

Life outside of WoW? Hmm, work and avoiding doing anything in work go hand in hand.

Trying to get my first novel published and currently half way through writing the sequel. Might I recommend the Writer's and Artist's year book for struggling Authors who want to get their name in print? Getting back into training for my martial art (taken a year's sabbatical before starting the long road to Second Dan), LARPing, Reinacting (2nd Battalion 95th Rifles) and preparing for a wedding in less than a year's time.

Tis all go!

My agent represents several leading sci-fi and fantasy, as well as horror, authors. But he'll only take stuff which is commercially viable ... as I know to my cost! I have to write, and rewrite, my work and pitches before it gets accepted by him. And that's before it goes to a publisher. As he says: "Don't give up the day job is what I tell all my writers - even when you get published."

That said, writing without commercial pressure - or needing to live off writing - is a dream you should hang on to. Full-time writing can be a nightmare Wink

Funny you mentioning martial arts, I've been looking around for a good tai chi school and just found a Chen style practitioner near me, which I've never done (this is tai chi with weapons and martial applications, as well as all the soppy shit for old timers ^^). Congrats on the impending nuptials.

I have a long list of Literary Agents and running through from top to bottom, I give each one four to five weeks to respond before applying to the next and generally have two applications out at any one time. Paitence is a virtue as is buying your paper from a wholesale retailer and having a printer cartridge refill shop down the road from your house!

Out of interest Nick, who are you with?

Marriage? Is that allowed? If so, will the Ashies be providing an honour guard?

I s'pose I should add some info in here as well, so here goes:
Youth work, youth work, youth work, occasionally going running, reading (sci-fi, fantasy and theology), listening to music, watching any political satire that's on and youth work.

Outside of WoW, I'm forced to play the waiting game. My next appointment with the Gender Identity Clinic's not until December 16th, I don't have a date for seeing a psychiatrist, and I'm still waiting for Prozac to take an effect (on 60mg's right now >.>).

Excluding that, there's buying things for my family and especially my nephew. Also listening to music almost every hour of the day, and generally doing mundane/normal things like shopping/visiting my gran.

Newt year will be fairly hectic as I'm aiming to scrape enough money together to visit a few European Countries, constant trips to London, hormone treatment, and general faffery.

It's been suggested by some that I write a book about being transgender, and I have had some others suggest writing fantasy/horror/etc. Mostly because of the misplaced notion that I'm eloquent, or even have anything interesting to say, I guess.
