… Where was it I heard a good way to get a story out of your mind
(so as to come at it with fresh eyes, editing, self- critiquing and all that)
… was to work on something else?
Tobias Buckell, maybe, talking on how he works…?
Gaming doesn’t… really do it for me. I can still feel it… percolating in the back there… while the game’s sensory info fills up my eyeballs and ears.
In my attempt to get this novelette out of mind, I inadvertently finished a poem I had spontaneously started.
It’s also my first ever speculative fiction poem:- titled, “The Architect of Bonfires”
Up until now, my poems have been literary.
And strangely enough, I saw a Red Pyro named that while playing on the second stage of Dustbowl map on Team Fortress 2.
What a place to get inspiration for a bit of (non-gaming) poetry, eh?
Well, here’s hoping I find it a home…
