Geek life and custom content for Savage Worlds
Working on a New Year’s Resolution
March 6, 2012Posted by on
One of my New Year’s resolutions this year was to try and get something published in a Pathfinder or Savage Worlds… something. I’d like to get something in Kobold Quarterly or Wayfinder (which doesn’t seem to have any kind of home page… hm), with the intention of occasionally doing freelance RPG work. That’s something I’ve been interested in for a while, but have never really pursued – I always seem to get distracted and don’t actually send anything off or participate in contests like the RPG Superstar or the various contests that third-party Pathfnder publishers do. My fault, of course.
To that end, I’m going to send a few things I’ve been working on in to the Kobold Quarterly web person and submit an article to Wayfinder #7. Hopefully they’ll like some of the stuff I do enough that I get something posted or published. I like to think I do a pretty good job of writing custom content, but outside of a couple of forum posts and things I write on this blog, nobody ever really sees it.
Anyone else out there have any recommendations for someone who’s interested in getting started in something like this? Anything I should avoid doing? I’ve listened to a number of podcasts and read stuff that talks about this kind of thing – Fear the Boot, Know Direction, a little bit from the Chronicles Pathfinder podcast, as well as the stuff on the Kobold Quarterly web site.
