How’s it going? A bit of a cryptic title, I know, but it reveals a little something people struggle with when they’re writing, living life, or what-have-ya.
Let’s get to it.
This virtual castle is Runescape’s Castle Drakan–it’s basically vampire-land…they’re everywhere. There are 7 quests in the series for this faction, and during a couple of them (mostly the last two), you are strenuously warned that you can’t use any kind of teleportation thingies once you’re inside the castle itself–doesn’t matter how powerful you are, they just don’t work.
The castle itself serves as a reminder of everything that takes place there–mostly the downfall of the vampire-resistance group you’ve been trying to help.
After you’ve finished the last quest in the series, after you fail the teleport, and you’ll be asked if you want to leave. When you pick “Yes,” you’ll be outside the castle, and the in-game chat box will tell you…
“Your body may have temporarily escaped Castle Drakan, but your mind remains trapped within…”
Do you struggle with that feeling in your day to day–thinking about things when you know you have better things to be doing with the rest of you (and your time)?
Sometimes I do–and it helps me to realize that those things are yesterday, an hour ago, five minutes ago, or what-have-ya, and they can’t be changed.
That’s something I have to remind myself of a lot, so I don’t get stuck in the “castle” of past failures, rejections, and mistakes.
How about you? Drop me a line in the comments–I’d love to hear your thoughts.
Oh, and it’s podcast day tomorrow, too.
Until next time,
