Right now, the only creative output I’m focusing on is boardgame development. I don’t have anything new signed with a publisher and I don’t have anything planned for self-publishing. To be honest the last couple of years I have not been able to get anything new in the pipeline. That seems to be because:
- I have very little time to do any creative/design work. I get 30 second snatches here and there at my day job.
- By the time I get home I feel like so burnt out I don’t have much desire to keep trying to force creativity.
- And in general, just general creative block, probably magnified by all the stress, tension, poor health, lack of sleep, lack of time, etc.
I have several games in development right now. The biggest one I keep refining and reworking but it never feels like it’s biting exactly. And all the other ones I try a couple of tests for never quite feel like something I want to keep working on.
I have a Game Design site and a twitter feed, but use both of them very rarely. I don’t feel like I have the time or energy. This is bad because I’m not building my brand at all.
So there’s that.
