Sometimes the universe is a beautifully strange place where you arrive where you’ve always wanted to be, but by a hard route you never would have chosen.
Personally, I’m still waiting to be cool.
My life has pretty much been consumed by work and I’ve never been happier. I have been renewed at the Mouse for the next year, which means a certain amount of stability for a freelancer, but I’m starting to feel the urge to formally salute every time I see the company logo.
What else have I been up? I have a number of new fiction coming out this year. You can read about the various venues here. I’ve been accepted into a couple of really keen anthologies.
I am working on two media projects that are currently top secret. I’ll post about said projects ten seconds after I get the formal permission. If I could travel back in time to when I was ten and tell Past Jason what I was working on, he would squee and do the happy panda dance. He might even think that Future Jason was cool despite his baldness.
I’m working on my third Onyx Path Publishing titled Rites of the Blood. I’ve revised a number of rituals and Thaumaturgy paths for one of my chapters. I’m now working on the Camarilla Thaumaturgy section as described in the Rites of the Blood public outline.
This also brings back fun memories of playing a Tremere with my lovely wife Lisa.
I am the Associate Developer for the Mind’s Eye Theatre project for By Night Studios. I’ve been playing this game since 1997. It feels weird to be working on the text for the next iteration of a game that has been a big part of almost half of my life.
I’ve been feeling a weird sense of deja vu since I’ve started working on the project with an amazing design team. Each night that I work on MET, I remember old games, forgotten stories, and the friends I’ve gained and lost over the years. It feels like I’ve come full circle and that every game, argument, or late night rules discussion has come together for a single purpose.
More cool news to follow tomorrow. I leave you with a cut scene from Almost Famous. I made my Papa Ray listen to this song. He had much the same reaction.
