My Life

The Details on the Great Blog Split

This is the first post of my new blog.

A few years ago I started up the blog at The intention then was a blog dedicated to my writing platform, YourOtherMind. But over the years it has turned more and more into a personal blog, discussing game design and writing. Things that make more sense to be off on their own blog. Like here.

So gradually as I figure out how to import past entries, I’ll be moving

The blog at will continue to be updated, but now only with information directly related to YourOtherMind software.
