…now I gotta come up with another way to procrastinate on them, I guess.
Well, I did it: 25 posts in a row (26 counting the intro one) about projects I started but haven't worked on lately, posted daily: https://journal.librarianofalexandria.com/backburner-month#backburnered-projects-index
i am a big enough person to admit that my previous stance of "i love going on the computer. i would like to do it every hour every day of my life and i would sacrifice anything in pursuit of this goal" was a mistaken one. i have grown as a person and can now see that going on the computer is bad and i don't want to do it

One reason I've been writing posts about "backburnered" projects is to keep them fresh in mind and maybe even regenerate some excitement for them.

This is a game inspired by a magic item in The Adventure Zone that allows you to modify the spells you cast by changing a single letter in the spell name. I called the game "Logomancy", but also strongly considered calling it either "Levenshtein's Destructive Resonance" or "Spelling Certain Doom".
Took an old one-page tabletop/party game I wrote and finally put it on Itch: https://aisamanra.itch.io/logomancy
I don't understand how you can want to make a ska album—novelty or not—and then not put any horns on it. Like. What.
Anyway, not sure what unnecessary semi-masochistic movie-watching agenda I'll set after this. A chronological rewatch of every Fellini movie? Every Fast & Furious movie? Every Ralph Bakshi movie? The possibilities are endless probably.
