I have not been making games lately. (Have you?)
More specifically, I have not been creative lately.
This means I am not doing what I want to do.
At first, I thought about posting this just to remind myself I own this blog. I forget I can do whatever I want sometimes. But next, I wanted to leave this post up as a reminder.
(It also reminds me of my silly "Don't Stop" post, from years ago.)
I just got back from being a guest speaker at one of Jillian Mood's (Mood Foundation) events, "An Evening of All Things Game Dev!!", and it has sparked my creativity once again, just being around exciting, creative people.
That is all.
