Okay, so itís official; 2013 has definitelynot been the Year of Eol! The entire year, up to this point, seems like itís been a refresher course on Murphyís LawÖ or out of the frying pan, into the fireÖ or something along those lines, anyway. Whichever way you want to look at it, itís been one trying year for yours truly Ė hell, the universe even tried to kill me over the summer and I spent the better part of the end of June in a coma Ė and, of course, all of it took a major toll on my creativity and, related to that, my time here with all you loverly InnmatesÖ
Iíve really started to feel that loss, recently, and thatís not necessarily a bad thing. In fact, and I write this with great hope, itís probably a good thing because, feeling that emptiness, Iím also feeling compelled to create something in order to start filling that void, you know? So, in turn, that means that my mind has decided itís got enough bandwidth back to dedicate to such endeavors and, when I start wandering that path of creativity, I always end up back here at the good old Red Dragon Inn!
Thank the powers that be, right?
AnyhooÖ letís call this the official announcement (or should that be warning?) that Eol has returned to the Inn and is likely to be stirring up some trouble in a thread near you very soon. Not sure what the exact nature of that trouble might be just yet but I get the feeling that Iím gonna lllllllliiiiiiiiikkkkkkeeeee it!

Always good to have you back. Try to stay back this time!
Ah excuse me, do I know you? I hate to seem pushy but you look really familiar, have we met before?.............
Welcome back Brother I and I'm sure a lot of the other Innmates have missed you desperately. Do me a favor, and this is a biggie. If you never do me another favor as long as we live, then do just this one..... Stay healthy, stay alive, and this time stay here with us. Ok ok that's 3 but who's counting
Ah! Innmate love! It makes me all tingly and such!
Thanks all! I've missed you, too! It's definitely good to be back and in the mood to get squirrely again. The plan, most assuredly, is to stick around permanent-like this time and, yes, stay healthy and upright for the duration.
Now, as I said earlier, I'm not entirely sure exactly what I'm going to do or where I'm going to start with this whole creativity resurrection but I've got a few ideas and some of those are jumping out in front of the others, right now. For example, I keep coming back to Nyx... finding myself wanting to slip into his skin and prowl Drasnia a bit... pull some more tales from that fetid well... and I begin recalling an idea I had for a psuedo-free-form thread I was tentatively going to call 'Drasnian Nights.' Still may start there... just some open free-writing kind of stuff based in the sprawl of the Crown Jewel of the Empire... but who knows? I've started scribbling down several possible posts in different veins... maybe we'll just see which one comes out the best first, eh?
