Over at R.G. Male’s Dark Corners on Wednesday I posted my 200th blog there. This was something of a momentous occasion given the more measured writing pace there and the fact that it is my pro (professional) blog. Did I do something extra special for it? Not really, but it was the eighth and latest instalment of my series of articles on designing a horror setting with psychic abilities involved. This time out I talked a bit about using psychic abilities to do evil. I wasn’t exactly holding out on the topic for the 200th post, but I feel it fortuitous to have come up now. It’s not a terribly in-depth look at psychic villainy but it isn’t meant to be either. I think this will be a cornerstone kind of post for the next couple to few articles in the series.
On the other hand I might just use this a break off point and blog about something else for a little bit. There comes a point where a break is a good thing. Stopping can let you recharge the batteries on a topic and give you renewed focus when you return to it. I don’t believe that I have said all I need to say, or want to say on the topic. At this point I’ve covered the basics of what I need to say to talk about more specific things. This is though I am reluctant to get too specific, in particular to the things that I intend to do with my own foray into this genre with my RPG product that I am pushing along slowly. It is not necessarily fear or paranoia of the ideas being "stolen" so much as it may be a wish to keep what I am doing fresh and surprising to the reader when the project is complete and available to its audience.
