I’ve been sitting on a draft of “Lost Heroes RPG: Book of the Gods” for over two months, since coming back from the holidays. I’ve gotten some encouraging feedback, but I’ve just not done anything with it. I even have a list of changes I want to do myself, certainly some chapters and sections need a re-write, my wife pointed out some grammar issues, such as my use of “they” in place of “his” or “her” leads to some peculiarities and so on. I could go on about coming straight back from the holidays into the tiring new school year and sudden approaching deadlines.
But, in all honesty, if you want to complete something, you’ll find the time, somehow. It all boils down to procrastination. Perhaps I am too tired, perhaps I’m simply afraid to put it online. Well the only way I’ve found to beat procrastination, is to do something. Force it. So, as per the title of this post, I’ve made a decision.
I’m going to put the current draft (with some minor changes) online in the next week. I’ve started tidying up the webpage and thinking about how best to present it, but by this evening or tomorrow it’ll be online for all to gaze apon.
I probably didn’t pick the best moment to do this though. Next Saturday is Gaelcon, the best Irish gaming convention, (though I haven’t planned to go sadly this year) and just announced yesterday is the Charity RPG bundle from DriveThruRPG (a worthy cause, I’ll be buying a copy…), $25 for over a $100 worth of RPG PDFs!
Anyway, a decision is made and action must be taken.
