Exiled to the Outer Rim

So, I missed a few posts in this 7 day period. I’m SORRRY. Partially this was due to work and me having a social life for once (I needed to do it, but the introvert is drained).  The other thing, was video games. And in this, I feel pretty justified.

Knights of the Old Republic 2: The Sith Lords. This video game is highly important to me and my life and I’ve played it and the old KOTOR more times than I can count. I adore the story lines. And most importantly, I adore the Exile. I understand her. She gets me. Her struggle is what inspired me to write SciFi, honestly. I’d always loved it, but my writing usually had had a more Victorian Gothic bent.

So I played, and I thought, and I was inspired again. Sometimes, I find I have to retreat to my comforts and inspirations and feed on them before I can put myself back onto a page. Now, my fingers are flying across the keyboard as a work on my novel. It was a good thing, I believe.

Not from KOTOR 1 or 2, but still. I love these two eternal besties.

Don’t worry. I do enjoy more serious things and probably better games than this, but it’s always going to be dear to my heart.

Now, I’m going–to write. To watch Supernatural. And to write more blog posts, I’m sure.

Xoxo, Vicky Stardust
