20 Days of WoW Blogging Challenge: Day 9 – My First Blog Post
I am finally getting into a routine, I think. I like it. The past few days have been far less stressful by having something vaguely resembling a schedule – I finally feel I am getting a lot of stuff done!
Day 9 – My First Blog Post
My first post actually illustrates my purpose with this blog quite well. It was my first Effy short story – Regrets.
After hanging out Wyrmrest Accord for a week or two, I began to go beyond the tiny amount of information that you can state about your character through the MyRolePlay addon. I also wanted somewhere I could keep track of the information I was putting on their little profiles (since I often enough switch back and forth between my desktop and laptop). So this blog started out as a mind-dump.
It just so happened that I had an idea strike my late, late one night. I had the first line of Regrets pop into my head, and as I wrote it down, the rest came to me in a big tumble of words.
I like the idea of an anti-hero. Effy the DK is a perfect anti-hero. She was once the member of a race infused with the Light and closer than any other race to the Na’aru. From there, she fell as far as one can – undeath. She now signifies everything the Light stands against.
Somewhere between Bounty Hunter and Children of Greymane, I want to make a story that brings her to Shattrath City and A’dal. A’dal would have a dialogue with her along the lines of how to bring herself back to the Light and his visions concerning her. But I have yet to put together the specifics.
Anyway, in short – my first post was the most fitting I could have wrote. It was about Effy and my interest in how she would roleplay.
Even though I enjoyed my time on Wyrmrest Accord, I have realized I am already more at home on Elune. The idea of RP’ing fascinates me, but actually doing it, not so much so. I will chalk it up to a really good doorway for me to get back to my love of writing and open a new chapter on my WoW playing.
