I am completely addicted to Civilization IV. I don’t know what it is about that game, but it sucks me in so bad!!
Anyway. I keep telling myself that my mind is working on my writing when I’m playing and that might be true and it might be a lie. I’m not quite sure.
BUT. I am not going to play Civ IV tomorrow. I think I finally know where my story is going and what is going to happen. That’s kind of the problem with romance novels. I enjoy the formula, but sometimes, I don’t know how to get from point A to point B and sometimes if I just let my mind go and try not to force it, it will find a way. This doesn’t really seem like a good plan though.
It’s an old game, I know, but, just— I can’t get enough. My PC died forever ago and I was doing all of my computing on my iPad with a keyboard. Worked amazingly well. I wrote over 500k words last year it worked so well. I thought a new computer would be a new productivity tool and I suppose it would be if not for this game!
In any case, I am not playing an Civ IV tomorrow. I can do that. I can stop any time that I want to! 😉
