MMO and Me

Uploaded by:AngryJoeShow

This video is really funny, because I play this game and this video was made 4 years ago. So even though a lot of this video is of high praises. A lot of this guys issues with the game has now been fixed.

The game that this gentleman is talking about is called Guild Wars 2 and it is probably my favourite game at the moment. I am playing it at least for an hour pretty much every single day/night. The format of the game is MMO.

MMO stands for Massively Mutilplayer Online (MMO) Game. Which means that you can play with all sorts of people from different regions. Unlike multiplayer games you don’t necessarily have to have a friends list to play with others. Depending on the popularity, and the capability, of the game, you can easily have hundreds if not thousands of people playing at the same time. They are generally not invisible players either, you can easily see them as they run pass you.

The most well-known MMO is probably World of Warcraft, South Park even made an episode based on the game. However, I have never actually played WoW. The two that I mainly play are Guild Wars 2, as mentioned before, I am on there pretty much every day. I used to also play Warhammer Online, and I actually really loved it! However, they discontinued in 2013. Warhammer online is based from the Warhammer games made by Games Workshop table top game. Which was funny because I was dating someone at the time, which is how I was introduced to the game, but I find the actual table top game really boring.

If you play Guild Wars 2, please comment below and we can totally be friends!

How a Book is Made Tag

(This tag was created by WritingMime over on YouTube. I am totally stealing this from The Orangutan Librarian Please check them out!)

1. Should you participate in National Novel Writing Month to create a book?

nanowrimo

I have never participated in NaNo myself, but I have known a lot of others who have. I think that it could definitely help to inspire, but I don’t think people should pressure themselves to try and create the next “Harry Potter”. It should be a good start though!

2. Self-publishing or traditional publishing?

I would always want to try traditional publishing first, but I can totally see why someone would want to self-publish. When I think of someone like JK Rowling and how many times she got rejected. I could see why someone might turn to self-publishing.

3. Write one idea at a time or write all the ideas at once?

I have this “habit” where I’m trying to focus on something, but then I might see something out of the corner of my eye and get distracted. What I try to do now though is send a text to myself, or write a note somewhere and come back to it later…If I remember! If I want to focus on different parts of a story I’m writing, for example, having two ideas at once for two different chapters. I will try my best to write bits and parts at the same time for each section. Even if it’s just a sentence here or there, something that when I came back to it later, I’ll remember what I was writing.

4. What genre is the easiest to write?

Well I haven’t tried writing for ALL genres, but I would suspect it’d be the genre that you enjoy writing the most. For me, it’s Fantasy. I can’t draw what I see in my head, so I write instead. I love to read crime, but I would be really bad at writing for it. I’m secure enough to admit that I am not nearly clever to write in some twist at the end.

5. Where do you need to write to get the work done?

I could write pretty much anywhere. It’s more about my mind space.

6. Where do you find your inspiration?

Like the Orangutan Librarian I can find my inspiration everywhere! Bad, Sad, Mad, Happy, Wonderful, Bright. I do have a set playlist on YouTube though, it usually helps me to stay focus on my writing. All nice and inspirational music. Mainly Celtic.

7. What age do you start writing?

You can start at any age, once you’ve started to learn to write of course.

8. What’s easiest to write? Short stories, stand-alones, series, etc.

Personally I find it easier to write novels. I have tried writing short stories but my imagination takes over and I end up writing longer stories and longer descriptions and the story just tends to keep growing.

9. Do you mill your books or take years to write a book?

I am still writing all my books, none of them are done. I am actually thinking of continuing on with a “tv script” that I started years ago when I started role playing online…via AOL…So long ago!

10. How fast can you type?

Very! When I think about it I get a really bad accuracy score, when I just do it I get a good score,lol.

11. Do you write in the dark or in the light?

I write whenever I can, or when inspiration hits and I have access to write.

12. Hand-written or typed?

I am usually a typer, sometimes though I write down things and then type them up later, but usually I’m a typer.

13. Alone or with someone else?

I am assuming about this is in reference to writing books etc. I like to write alone, I find I spend most of the time to trying to negotiate what should or shouldn’t be written in. It’s too constrictive.

14. Any typing hacks?

Nope

15. Are you already published?

No, hehe…As I’ve written above (see Question 9) I haven’t even finished writing a book yet. I would love to be though…If could finish it off!

16. When did you first consider being an author?

I have been writing for years. I can’t even remember what really made me consider it. I grew up around Libraries, so I guess it kind of just started there? I never really went “this is it”…If that makes sense? The writing has just kind of happened.

17. How many books do you have in draft form?

All of them I guess? I have one major one going and the rest are in total beginning stages. Idea forms.

18. Do you outline or no?

what-do-you-take-me-for

19. What’s your favourite note-keeping strategy?

I actually text myself a lot, I find it handy when I am out and about. When I’m at home I do it even then. I also have Word documents with notes, explaining character relationships to each other, mainly so I don’t get myself confused.

 

20. What do you think about writing in different genres?

I have no problem with it, I just don’t think that I would very good at writing in different genres. I mainly, actually pretty much all of my writing is in Fantasy.

If you were a pen, what type, style and color would you be?

Oh, this a good one! I think that I would have to be a purple pen…It’s a bit different from the other “normal” colours, but it’s not quiet sparkly as the gold and silver pens. I’d probably be a basic design pen, but I’d be a bit different from the normal colours…I haven’t reached my full sparkle.

How many languages do you you speak?

I only speak English really =/ Which I think is actually really unfortunate. I can, however, count up to 10 in German =D

Are you a listener or talker?

I am definitely a listener. I find it hard to open up, even with my nearest and dearest. Plus sometimes it feels like what I have to say may sound silly and I can get paranoid about it. I have become more of a talker this year, but that’s down to a lot I am just kind of sick and tired of seeing all these injustices.

Rather Have:  Which would you rather have, 2 million dollars or true love? 

Can’t I have both?lol … After what I’ve got with my new partner, I’ll take the true love…I’ve had bad love and no amount of money can make you happy…Retail shopping will last for about an hour, maybe,lol
