My avatar's name is Ava Donja of Silk and Stone.
The other me writes general market romance. I play World of Warcraft. This is where I make two parts of my life merge in sensual fantasy romance novellas.

I've been frustrated with the way my guild crashed and died. That, coupled with my lack of time in general, has meant less WoW time. I don't even know my main's hot keys any more. My other 85's are too undergeared to run the new content. Ach whore that I am, my ineptitude shouldn't be a reason not to play. I mean, I can still do stupid things like fish, right?

Dark Moon fair was my only glimmer of hope, but any pay off from that is way off. As a result, I'm bummed about WoW. And, on top of it, I suck. Even sober. Maybe if I got my drink on, I'd remember all the content that I blurred through in a happy buzz. Or not. Today I ran a low level raid w/a friend and just was a spas. Seriously. And, besides dying, I couldn't find my way back to the instance. Repeatedly.

This inspired the blog title, sucktastic. I think that sums up my playing ability. Screw the new raids, I can't even do lowbie ones. How do I fix this? Start to care again? Join my friends on Star Wars instead? No -- I'm jumping back into dailies to relearn my toons. The good news? I'll get a lot of leather out of it.

Sad, really. I'm much better at writing about WoW than playing it.

How's your day?

I haven't played for awhile. Maybe I should. Or maybe I should finish my ms. I vote for ms. Once I'm done, I'll reward myself with some of the new content.

I haven't played WOW since WOTLK. I remember loving my elemental Shaman until I realized I was spending too much time in game and not out of it. I can't juggle both (kudos to you who can), so I decided to leave WOW.

I play other games now: Allods Online, Mythos Online...but not half as devoted as I was to WOW.

I don't think you suck, you just need time to remember the feel of the game.

It's nice to meet you Ava and I hope to chat with you real soon.

SO you have a picture of the Lich King for your banner and don't play wow? I'm so confused. Plus, you're the Frost Lord...
Okay, I'll let it go. :)
Thanks for finding me.
