Just a random guy with a passion for video games and music. If you want to contact me, I'm on Xfire and Steam often enough. If you want a custom header, background or avatar (or all three!) for personal use or for your group(s), let me know ;) Space and words of all sorts will fill this space, never to be seen again. On top of that I am going to update my profile so that you cannot see these words. Instead, a cool looking picture shall go on top with some html links for various sites of mine. I still have five hundred characters to go. Drat. Whilst writing that I lessened the character amount. I now have three hundred and sixty one. Wow, that actually worked. But it doesn't matter, because you will never see this again. Well, maybe if you're lucky you will, but I'm not so sure. Anyway, I'm going to attempt to. I need to max out the text. Horribly annoying at times, let me tell you. Still quite a few characters to go, but only in the double digits. Fortunately that ate a bit up. Single.

Posted by on

So I did finally get around to writing this, but it didn't come out in April like I promised (one day off, I know, such a slacker). But to get down to business!

As the title says, this blog will be about a couple of things but first, a contest! The idea was given to me by Salsa_Shark when I asked people to post their desktops. Basically we all would post what we see from our windowsills (whichever windowsill you like I guess). I think it's a pretty cool idea and if you guys want to we can organize that. However another idea along the same lines popped up. What about a worldwide scavenger hunt? It may seem a little crazy but I think it would work. A for instance would be something like this: A list of places/things to find is given to the participants and during their regular life if they find it, they take a picture of it and upload it, either to their profile or just to send it to the organizer. Whoever "finds" all of the places/things on the list first, wins. Now if there's a prize, I don't know what it would be and as I'm not made of cash it unfortunately wouldn't be some sort of game! But who knows, we may come up with something.

Next is the pictures. Several people wanted some custom desktop backgrounds and I'm sorry to say that I haven't had time to work on them (once again, I'm a slacker haha). That doesn't mean I won't work on them, but I've had to prioritize things to do recently as my summer became a bit more packed than anticipated. I should be able to get some work done on them soon though, so stay tuned!

And the last part. And more! is a bit vague, so I'll explain. I've wanted to get back to writing short stories, partly because I love to write and also because I actually have stories that would work on a short story scale. If you guys would be interested in reading and critiquing them then it would really push me to write more often and better! If not, well, I'll probably post them anyways, hehe.

So that's all for now! But if you read this far, please leave a comment on what you think and also, since I believe most of you don't receive blog updates, let me know if the picture update system worked and if so, I'll continue to use that.

As always, here's your friendly ModDB-aholic,

Well, I am definatly in on the reading and critiquing the short stories, I am a bit of a writer myself, and have a friend who is a very good writer, I am sure I/we can give you some advise - and I always like reading a good story. (as long as it's not a 300 page book xD)
