What I’m up to/What I’ve been writing…

Quick update for everyone. My work/life balance is still a work in progress. Thanksgiving is coming up, and as an employee of a grocery store, this is our busy time! I’m stressing over how busy next week will be!! And I’m working the day before!! UGH!!!

To get my mind off the stress of work, I’ve been doing a little writing and a LOT of gaming. It should be the other way around, I know. I need to work on it. Been playing Pokemon Sword, and I’m enjoying it. Made it to the first gym town. This is a grass type gym, and my two strongest types are strong against grass types, so I think I’m set! Just need to get my boys trained a bit more…

As for writing, I’m working on a post-apocalypse story. Kind of like a Fallout where the end wasn’t nuclear, but environmental and societal. Basically Fallout with no fallout! The main characters are a team of professional freelance soldiers who are sent to get an asset for a tech guild (technology is valuable in any post-apocalypse) and they end up entangled in a plot by the old-world Oligarchy to reclaim a special weapon that could end the world again. Haven’t gotten far in the story, just the first act. I’m debating the personality of the asset, whether to give them a special attribute. I’m debating making them autistic, though I don’t know much about autism (but I DO KNOW autism is NOT caused by vaccines, KAREN!!!!) If I go that route, I’ll need to do some research…

Signing off for now. Gotta work this afternoon. Till next time, guys!!
