I realized today that I’m in a new story. I’m lost and confused and feel like I’ve missed some important piece of information. This means that I’m in the middle of it, which is a place to start from if you can’t keep it together enough to recognize the beginning when it happens.
But the middle is actually my favorite place to start, because you don’t have to worry as much about the annoying set-up and character building. I just want to keep going and pick up the essentials on the fly. Not that the world-building isn’t important, The Lord of the Rings and Game of Thrones would be significantly less awesome if the time to create the world was skipped.

I have a new place to write! I’m still writing here about whatever random stuff enters my head and whatever stories I can get together enough to post.
I’m also still writing (quite frequently) at PopArmy, because I need someplace to write about the TV shows I love and the movies that drive me nuts.
But now I’m writing about apocalyptic/post-apocalypse anime and manga at ApocalypseHub.com. I will honestly take any excuse to write about another of my favorite forms of entertainment, and when I found this one, I knew I had to take it. I thought of literally 7 series instantly, and new with just a tiny amount of research, I would find more.
It’s a weekly(ish) column on a great website. It’s not all doom and gloom, it’s mostly the funny things we’re creating for the end of the world. I think with all the world insanity, some people have overreacted a little about the end happening all around us. This site highlights the best elements of that shared crazy.
So check it out, have some fun, and be prepared for the end of the world. Or at least see how other people are getting ready. I’ll have the icon off to the side always linked there, so you’ll never have to look far. Enjoy the apocalypse!
