Outline for an Adventure 2

Also known as its old working title… Let’s Go on an Adventure 2 Part 1 I had kinder thoughts towards the man after reading his book. We had many differences but his genius should not be understated. Flodnag was anything but a slouch when it came to strategy. This is why we followed his crazy…

Outline for an Adventure 1

While struggling through my depression, and not really having a desire to write, I struggled through this outline of a fantasy book. Not your typical outline now. I didn’t write out dry and boring descriptions of what I would write… I just wrote the prose in miniature form. Traditional outlines are far simpler and make…

O the Places We’ll Go

The husband is not called to be a dictator. Ephesians 5 calls the woman to submit to her husband, yes, but the man is called to love the wife as Christ loved and gave Himself up for the church. The wife submits. The husband sacrifices. In fact, when Ephsians 5 says, “Husbands love your wives…”…

Reconciliation

How do you approach a person you’ve hurt and start it all again? What if the pain caused is so large you can’t even see a way to move past it?  Reconciliation takes both parties (the one who hurt and the one hurt) to work. Both have to want to heal and move on. Both…

Up My Game

Life can be hard, so I must work harder. Six months ago I published my second Minecraft map Huge. It wasn’t much of a big  success. So, I decided to take stock with my actions and learn more about Minecraft. As in life, when things get me down, I need to move my imaginings to…

How to Deal with Wolves in Sheep’s Clothing

Prelude I must confess that I’ve been too harsh towards the wolves found in the midst of church. Deep inside, I forgive them, I care for them, and I want them to find help. I just might not have been good at demonstrating this. Victims have very difficult decisions to make. I come across as…

Huge is Out!

You can watch the trailer here! It currently has 1,133 views and 5 map reviews.  I’ve done all I can; now it’s up to the audience. Let’s see what they say. Most maps make about three thousand dollars and disappear. A select few make 10K or more. And an even greater select few make a…

I Just Published Clo and Huge!

On my way home, from Louisiana and back to Minnesota, I decided to check my slack from Microsoft. Slack is a messaging type of program used for business. You can also share large files on there. This is how Microsoft communicates with the partners. Well, I noticed the Deepwellbridge channel (which only has me and…

On to Certification!

Both Chronicles of Clo and Huge have passed content review! This is a huge step (he he) to chronicle on my blog here (he he he) as it means we are one step clo-ser to publication!  Certification is where they test the map on multiple platforms. This is to see if there are any performance…

A HUGE Re-submission!

Man, this pun never gets old! As predicted, once December 15th was finished, Microsoft moved on from winter-themed maps and returned to viewing regular maps. What I didn’t expect was to hear from them so soon! They found an issue with terrain that I promptly fixed and then resubmitted.  This is a very good sign!…
