Happy New Year

Like so many others this time of year, I have been thinking about new endeavors and resolutions for a new year. One such new endeavor is the creation of this blog. As someone who regularly writes and plays on Magic the Gatherling Online, I have been considering methods of building a more intentional web presence. Additionally, I have also taken my first steps towards becoming a fantasy author, and have been pondering different means to connect with others and share what I am working on. Thus, a blog seems to be the perfect solution.

For now, my plan is to submit updates twice a week, publishing by midnight on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Subject matter will be somewhat varied, but will include, in no particular order:
  • Links to my newest articles over at PureMTGO.com
  • Discussions on Magic the Gathering Online in general, and the Standard Pauper format in particular
  • Thoughts and helpful information regarding becoming a writer in the science fiction/fantasy market
  • Drafts of short stories and other writings, which are either a work-in-progress or have been deemed unsuitable for seeking professional publication
  • Random musings about life, philosophy, or anything else that catches my interest
I am looking forward to a great new year as I begin this new endeavor and hope in the weeks and months to come that many of you will join me in this venture. Please feel free to comment, if for no other reason than to let me know my words are not simply being lost into the void.


  1. Hey gwyned! This is a great idea and I'm glad you've decided to embark on this new endeavor. Of course I'm always interested in your take on Standard Pauper, also my favorite format. Surely you remember me as Cabel on MTGO and Copperfield on PDCMagic.com. This whole thing has got me to thinking that I myself haven't blogged in nearly a year and that I've often dreamt of being a fantasy writer too. You may just have inspired me to pick things up again, so thanks! Looking forward to reading your next installment.

  2. Yay! Congrats on this new thing you're doing! I look forward to hearing what you have to say! :)

  3. looking forward for your writings! good luck with that!
