Lately, I've been easing through my normal routine. After I finish a major project, I wander aimlessly for a while, picking at new ideas like they were scabs in the recesses of my brain (brain scabs are nasty). While I do this, I need to keep my mind occupied with fresh material and concepts. So I consume. A lot. Any creative input will due. Emulators are at the top of the queue at present.
The most eagerly-tackled game in the bunch, by far, was the original, the classic, the most awesomely awesome, "The Legend of Zelda."
|Hear that Overworld theme playing in your head. Relish it. Bathe in its epic tonal quality. Now do some more relishing. Mmmm.|
|Like this one. I'm already a decent way through it. And things are coming along well. It's amazing what you remember from when you were seven (in cases that aren't Zelda).|
Anway, I hope you all have a successful writing routine (or general work routine) that works for you. Something that helps you optimize production. And, something that's just plain fun. Takes the stress out of life for a while, and helps to further your goals at the same time. So, to this point, I say emphatically, happy birthday Nintendo.
