I wasn’t surprised by the results of the latest poll, which show that most people fall into one of two extremes: either spending a ton of time writing for their blog in comparison to their actual gaming, or vice versa. Personally I fall pretty close to the middle. Occasionally I find myself spending a lot of time writing up a post that isn’t relevant to my current games. Then I might feel a pang of guilt and that I should be using more of my time making better adventures, more flavorful NPCs, plot twists, hooks, traps, maps, etc. for my players. In the end though, I think I have to let my thoughts wander all over the place to stay creative generally… and what seem to be digressions can lead to just the inspiration I needed for our next game session.
