Myst V

I never felt the urge to finish Myst V. I knew it was the "end of the line."

But with the launch of UruLive in the near future (it is really true? will it really happen? I'm still at the edge of hopeful joy and dread, remembering the fate of the last attempt), I finally bit the bullet and finished it.

Now I want to go back and play all the games, and I'm in awe all over again at what Rand Miller and Cyan has created. Amazing...

My story Justice is published now at The Sword Review.

And I'm bummed. I feel like quitting altogether. Just as I saw it up today, I realized how I could have made it twice as good. Argh!!!

Ah, well, it's an all right story. I hope whoever reads it, enjoys it.

And for a great blog post from a proud, bragging mum, read the post below this one!

Proud Mom!

At her first meet of the season, my daughter has proven the move to a new gym was the right one! She took 3rd place in two events, bar and floor, and got her highest All Around score yet: 34.3, which gave her 7th place All Around out of 30 girls in her group!

I'm one proud mom!!
