It's Funny in a Sad Kind of Way (regarding RP)
September 15, 2020

I'm supposed to be replying to "in character" threads that are waiting for me, or at least post an "out of character" message regarding the quietness of my groups. Or, I really ought to be spending this time updating the info for BR and LS... including finishing the species/race profiles that I've been promising for over 2 years.

But instead, I am entertaining the idea of creating another RP group. A group that's been off and on in my head for many years. It started as an RP between my husband and me when we first met and probably took a year or so to reach some sort of conclusion. Then we tried to make it into a sandbox RP group but it failed. I tried to write it as a story a couple of times. After sitting "silent" for a number of years, it started bugging me a couple of years ago. "This time will be different," it said. It's still made of sand and I can't seem to figure out how many fantasy-based races to have and what kind. I also can't pinpoint what (history) timeframe I want this RP to be inspired by. All I know for sure is that it will be a portal fantasy like BR and LS, but narrower in scope (just three worlds instead of countless).

Another distraction is... an RP friend has mentioned a "dying earth" scenario that has me excited even though it would not be ready for at least a few years. I'm already coming up with character ideas when all I know is the premise.

So, why am I "suddenly" drawn to these RP groups that are still in development? Why can't I focus on my current groups that are waiting for me now?

I guess there's always tomorrow.
