An Old Nemesis Returns

I'm still here, just busy. What's been taking up most of my spare time is an old friend/foe, City of Heroes. I had quit for about three months, due to boredom and burnout, but their Christmas event lured me back in. And once I was in, I was stuck.

Funny thing is, I quit partly because I wanted to save that 15 bucks a month for other things. But after Christmas, not only did I spend the 15 bucks, but then I spent another $20 to finally buy City of Villains (a good deal since it came with another 15 dollars worth of free gametime, so I only spent $5 on the game itself), and then close to $150 on computer upgrades so I would play the game with its recent patches. I was already barely limping along on the lowest graphics settings across the board. I'm hoping the upgrade does some good in other areas to help justify the cost, though.

And ironically enough, after a week or so of City of Heroes, I've come up with some ideas for the big scene that I stalled out on the Hero Go Home rewrite. Of course, I haven't actually written any of it because I've been too busy playing. But that will change soon. I think that rewrite may soon be churning along again.
