It's been a cool twelve weeks since I've welcomed you to this hobby word palace, and that's because I've been back at school learning how to do... Well, pretty much what I'm doing right now. I'm enrolled in a technical writing program at my local vocational school, and it's been a lot of work, but it's also been a lot of fun. Turns out I'm actually pretty good at this type of thing.
One of the courses I'm taking is Writing For The Web, and it's impressed upon me the need to keep a regularly-updated blog, and certain techniques around doing so. I actually just realized right now that I'm not exactly using what's known as the inverted pyramid structure of writing, but one step at a time. Right now let's just get back on the track of regular updates.
Because of school, I haven't been painting much, and because of COVID I haven't been gaming much, but hopefully those things will turn around as I have a four-week break between courses coming up and I'm fully-vaccinated. I'm still not planning on attending any tournaments or conventions this year, but I'm optimistic for next year. I still have my regular Monday-night role-playing game with my group (I'm running the revised Enemy Within campaign for Warhammer Fantasy Role Play 4th edition), and I'm still knee-deep in the game mines, so my days are definitely game-filled.
For some actual content, please enjoy this video I made for my Definitions, Instructions, and Process Descriptions class. It's a tutorial on how to make a homemade wet palette for painting miniatures using stuff around the house. The assignment was to create a set of instructions for a process you know fairly well, that is easy to follow, and uses the techniques discussed in the class. I got a pretty good grade on it, so that means it's empirically good.
