I have been resisting creating a Reddit account for a few years now because I am one of those people who has a tendency to “Follow the White Rabbit” all the way down the hole of the internet. I cannot tell you how many days of my life I have lost to following links on Wikipedia alone.
I recently came to the conclusion that browser and Pinterest searches only end up yielding the same results time and time again. I decided it was time to give Reddit a try and holy hell, I think I am in love, I mean, as much as one can be in love with a web forum.
I have been keeping my interests specific for the time being. There’s a project that I have been working on for a few months now that I have not talked about to anyone. It’s sort of a pet project that I hope to build up some more content for before I start sharing it. I don’t want to give anything away about it yet.
Yes, I am still working on my career path towards joining the RCMP but I am one of those people who needs a creative outlet. Blogging only takes me so far when it comes to stretching my writing legs. After completing the NaNoWriMo project last November, I built up enough confidence that I can follow a writing project through to the end.
What I am working on will be a multimedia project that will include writing, photography, music, and maybe even film. The end goal of the project is to create a multilevel experience. I have even been playing with the idea of building a mobile app to go along with it. I found a great MIT site that makes it easy to learn to code. I have also been doing some research for it on Reddit and have picked some specific subcategories that are related to the theme/setting of the project.
I can give you a hint as to what I am working on. The inspiration for is coming from authors like George Orwell, Ray Bradbury, Robert A. Heinlein, Philip K. Dick, William Gibson, and Isaac Asimov. Also, I have already begun to publish it on a top secret website under a nom de plume. So hiding somewhere on the internet is this pet project.
I will have more on this as soon as I feel that there is something worth sharing.
