catching up and being behind

I'm all caught up on my concert reviews! It's about time.

I'm way behind on the monthly list, though—once again, I've barely touched any of it, and I'm expecting to be busy with other things in the next couple days so that I won't get any of those items done. Maybe on Thursday I can tackle a couple things, it depends on whether work that I was expecting to start showing up yesterday actually starts coming in by then.

I'm also behind on dungeon preparation. I've been excited about Dungeon World, I've had a lot of neat ideas about the Seattle/Cetak setting, I've enjoyed playing Dungeon World, I had a good time running Dungeon World over Christmas using the "Purple Worm Graveyard" dungeon that Tony created… but when it comes down to it, I don't actually like preparing to run games (or even doing between-session character preparation if I'm a player). This is a serious problem, because I also can't run games off the top of my head without having something prepared. Well that's not quite true, as I've done it successfully on a few occasions, but most of the time I just freeze up, unable to articulate any ideas or make decisions on the spot about what I should present for the adventure. I think I get the most fun just dreaming up setting ideas; it's more about the creative writing than anything else. In the short term, I'm sure what to do: I offered to run a game, I have to spend some time right now preparing to do so tomorrow night, and fortunately I do actually have some idea of what I want to do, I just have to spend the time jotting down the ideas and getting the game stats and such. In the long term, I don't know; maybe I just shouldn't run games.

Anyhow, that'll do for today's journal entry; I've got a game to prepare.
