Effraeti's RP

One Woman, Two Timelines, Two Destinies.

Effy Uses an Ankh

That’s right, I just rez’d myself, because I can do that.  🙂

So over the past few weeks, the reaching out of two particular individuals has served as a figurative kick in the pants for me.  Through my own observations, a recent Navispam aimed at Laz and myself, and a few comments from the lovely and sweet Matty in my last post, I noticed that it is now more than a month since my last post here.

Granted, I have been writing.  No short stories recently, but I have been keeping busy on a separate blog.  However, that blog has been set aside with the passion I no longer possess for the content.

I miss my Effy blog and I miss writing my short stories.

I realize now how silly it was to start an entire new blog just because I was playing a different game.  My blog here has never really been about just World of Warcraft – I story tell here, I roleplay here, I share my passions both game-wise and those IRL, I fiddled with other games, and I shared my blogging experience with readers and fellow blog writers.

I am comfortable doing that through the guise of Effy.

Now, let me say that this post does not signify a return to WoW for me.  Both I and Effraeti, the Draenei Resto Shaman, have retired from WoW.  Whether more Azeroth-related stories are in the future remains to be seen.

BUT however much I want to keep writing right here on this blog at this address where everyone already knows me, my persona, and my writing, I also frown every time I see my blog’s address:

Effy’s RP on Wyrmrest Accord

It has made me cringe deep down ever since I server transferred from Wyrmrest Accord.  It is a testament to my noobness as a blogger – basically, I made the scope of my blog far too narrow.  Though I have made due with it for a year now, I think it is time to make my blog a bit more all-encompassing.

What I need is a new blog name…

The goal: a blog for short stories of all types (mostly fantasy/MMO-related), gaming/computer talk, and personal mind-dumps.

The parameters: I am thinking something along the lines of a title with words like “muse” or “bard.”  Something that signifies a storyteller.  The title has to be fantasy/MMO gaming appropriate, but not as narrow as my current title.

Can you all help me with this?  🙂

  1. you forgot to put a title on your post! 🙂
    Hmm, I will have to sleep on this one. It’s 2am … I will wake up inspired I”m sure for a name for you!

    • Bah! It did not like my brackets around the title. Oh well. All better now. 🙂

      I am sure you will come up with something inspiring. ❤

  2. Hmm, not sure about a name but I fully support it. 🙂

    • Thanks, Cym! 🙂

      I miss writing and I miss you guys!

  3. I’m also not coming up with anything but then I’m distracted by your Tera blog, want to read a little about it!

    • Uh oh, Ancient is distracted… 😉

      ~ Effy

      • LOL! I’m distracted by Tera, GW2, and, and, puppies!

      • Ooooh, puppies! Wait, are you playing TERA and GW2?

      Seriously, come to Tyria. You can still play WoW. I’ve convinced myself my monthly WoW subscription is cheaper than two drinks at the bar and I get ten times the social aspect with half the drunken buffoonery.

      Just let me know first so I can let you know what server I’m on. 😀

    How about “Eff Me.”

    At first I was going for funny and was going to suggest Eff You. But, actually, Eff Me is tongue in cheek, but accurately introduces who you are instantly, and has a wide scope.

    The only other thing that came to mind was “Incorporeal Poet” which, having JUST come up with it, sounds absolutely brilliant for a blog if I do say so myself.

    • Incorporeal Poet is actually pretty ingenious, but seems more fitting for Navi. 🙂

      • JD Kenada

        Thanks.

        I’ll take that as a “get back to the drawing board JD” in terms of your own. I’ll see what some sleep gets me 😀

      • Hehe, yah… The Eff You, Eff Me thing is cute, but it reminds me too much of those Asian sisters in the (second?) Austin Powers movie.

        I was debating just dropping the “on Wyrmrest Accord” part, and making my blog officially Effraeti’s RP. But I dunno. Still thinking about it.

  5. Geez, I can’t reply to a reply reply, lol. No, I am trying very hard NOT to buy Tera and GW2 right now. I figure I may give in later but right now I’m being stern with myself!

    • I was trying to not buy GW2 also. But as you can probably see from the next post… yah, I failed. heh

    Effy I have been giving this some thought but I think knowing you, the muse will kiss you and you will want it to come from your own mind. and the muse will visit soon, I feel that. I am just happy you will be there again, wherever there is! Big hug!

    • I think that is a wonderful sentiment, Matty, and perhaps you are right. Whatever the outcome, it will probably be in at some way a title that is original to me and from myself. As you say, just basically awaiting the Muse.

      *lightbulb*

      Matty, you are awesome! ❤
