I think I have to turn my art world a little on its head and re-evaluate my priorities.  Hahaha oh no!

I am going to keep plugging away at Bringing Down The Sky, somewhere in the background I will keep writing notes on Beyond the Sun. I've worked out a way to adapt Cass (her character rather than her appearance) into it, which is exciting. And I am getting more ideas of the world, and more courage to not fixate on making the whole thing make sense.

I have one private commission left.  It may perhaps be my last.  This is a bit sad, I've had a lot of fun, and learned so much, and grown even more as I have worked with other people to bring out their ideas.

I am trying to get into a PhD. If I can, much of my faffing about time in art and games will be redirected to rockets, spacecraft, atmospheres and modelling.  It feels a little like losing my childhood that I have clung to. My escapism. A community into which I delved and dug and made a little place.

A reframe of this is so:
Space technology, space ships, the future of humanity, the worlds beyond our own have been in my dreams since I could remember. And this is chasing my deepest dreams.
But it is very scary. I feel like I am sleep walking that this is not real, and I will wake up. Or that it is a nightmare and the dark turn is just around the corner.  Or that people will notice that I really don't know what I am doing.  It is very scary to chase a dream.

Oh well.  

You cannot be the 1% who succeed if you don't try.

Not ashamed of crying there, that was raw. So well done, so much kudos to CD Projekt Red for that level of emotion. Its also just poetic, on that island of the lost with your past closing in on you. So perfect.

although i have to say, all the shit leading up to it was like "bruh"

like going on the boat and the winged ladies attack you from the side? "bruh"
you go to rescue someone only for them to fall down the rock and break their neck? "bruh"
snow white and the seven dwarves reference? "bruh"

HELLO wow I eventually finished and now I am answering messages.

That whole Island, I loved it, but the whole sensation about it felt like the breathless anticipation, apprehension of an anxiety disorder.  Or maybe that is just how I felt playing it.  Don't know, but it was such a good oppressive atmosphere.
