Beneath Two Skies

She Blog-ged Me with Science

July 7th, 2011 by Rhoelyn

There’s a certain level of perfectionism (okay, a certain high level) that I put into all of my blog posts. Graphics, layout, editing – I run through the whole package with a rather fine-toothed comb before I let my mouse hover anywhere near “Publish”.

I am generally pleased with the result of this effort in every way save one: I can’t craft a post in less than an hour. It may not sound like anything resembling the end of the world, but it means that I also can’t post as often as I might wish.

It’s my wish to be a more predictable, more reliable blogger. I want to get back to the other half of the subject for which I built this blog: the living part of life as a WoW player. The balance between the two skies we live under – a balance that, funny enough, is healthy enough in my own life that it usually ensures I don’t get to write to you about it.

That’s my goal. And this is my experiment to see if I can reach it by letting myself be less-than-perfect. By just writing and sharing – no pretty pictures, no WMV and Photoshop wand-waving, no fancy formatting and tweaking.

Heck, no computer. I’m writing this on my phone. (Technicality, I know. This phone is more ‘computer’ than probably the first five desktops I owned.)

So, if you start seeing a little more that’s a little less from me, I hope it’ll turn out to be a lot better, overall.

About Beneath Two Skies

Living in two environments simultaneously is the unique conflict of the modern MMO gamer, and it's a challenge of epic proportions. (And you thought Illidan was tough?!) Here, we want to explore the points of convergence between our two worlds, from creative inspiration that artists and craftsmen can find in the game to tips and tricks that can help players take care of themselves and their 'real' lives while still enjoying the game. How can you show your love for both the World of Warcraft and the world of your craft? How can you take good care of your toon and take good care of yourself?
