Other Folks: Octo

It's easy, working hard plugging away on your own projects, to start feeling like you live and work and exist entirely in a bubble. But the thing is, first off, living in a bubble is boring, second, if you never leave your bubble, who's going to see the cool stuff you're doing there?

I've been noticing recently how much is going on in the world that is actually, genuinely really cool. I've been struggling with what to do with this blog, now that I have the Black Hat Writing blog up and running. One of the things I think I would like to do is just use this to occasionally highlight awesome stuff other people are doing in my area of RPGs, gamebooks, and the like.

(If you're reading this and you have something cool going on which you'd like me to take a look at and share, by all means, drop me a link!)
