So Many Distractions

So, once upon a time I had hoped to finish the third book in my trilogy by fall of 2016. Here I am in March of 2017, and while the ending is in sight, it is still in the distance. Why? The simplest answer is “life.” Life keeps me busy, whether it’s keeping up with my kids, or working at my job. More than that, though, is that I have too many interests and a finite amount of attention span. It’s rare for me to have fewer than three books on the go, usually at least one binge-worthy show on Netflix, and whatever video game time I can find. Throw in working out and time with my wife and kids, and my days are pretty full.

Lately, my game of choice has been Mechwarrior Online (MWO). While I’m normally not into multiplayer, and dead set again multiplayer first-person shooters in particular, MWO has really caught my attention. With a slew of mechs to choose from, and each of them with their own qualities and faults, it functions almost like a bizarre hybrid of FPS and a role-playing game for me. In the last couple of weeks, my time on MWO has been combined with some video capture and editing practice, leading me to publish the first ever videos on the Nerd Incognito Youtube account.
