I’ve been very quiet as I mentioned in one of my few articles lately. Well, the big time-consuming element, Fratris Salutem, is almost here. This Saturday is the big event and while I still have a few lingering items to take care of it, the hard work is done. This week is the first week in months where I have not felt the pressure to get 100 different things done. I’m one of those people who
dislikes hates deadlines and feeling pressured. I don’t crumble in these situations but it does make me irritated. When I’m irritated I don’t feel like doing much of anything beyond what I need to, so I don’t write articles and I don’t work on my army.
This Saturday it all comes to a head and I’m really looking forward to seeing what people think of the event. This is the part that makes it all worthwhile; assuming the players don’t think it blows anyway. As much as I look forward to Saturday, I also look forward to it all being over. With Fratris Salutem behind me I can focus again on my army, my poor neglected Chaos Marines.
The fact I can look forward to something is more than I’ve had going for me at all lately. Hobby interest had dwindled and my free-time was being consumed by other things, other interests that normally take a back-burner to 40K. I can feel the urge to finish assembling my Chaos Marines squad, finish painting a few squads that are a model or two from being done, etc. Next month is a tournament that some of us plan on attending out-of-state and I have a few models to get done for it. I’m hoping that’s the catalyst that puts me back on track and energized again.
So, hopefully you all see a lot more of me here again. I also want to thank Kamui and JD for helping cover for my sorry ass while I’ve been in this funk. If it weren’t for those two guys then this blog would have been lucky to see two articles in any given month.
