More on Virtual Horse Breeding and Racing

After looking over several virtual horse breeding and racing games, I'm beginning to think that what I ought to do is just roll dice.

A lot of these online horse games involve forums, with intricate, detailed set-ups for fictitious auctions, sales, banks, etc. But really, my two interests are just breeding and racing my own virtual horses. I'm not interested in training strategies, selecting jockeys, keeping track of vet and farrier bills, and all of that. I don't want a game with forums because that takes time to participate in. You have to read all of the darned forums to have a hope of keeping current with the game. Just reading my LJ friends list is rather time-consuming.

I don't want to have to keep up with forums. That is why I have left quite a few activities I used to enjoy, because it just got to be too much and too time-consuming.

Bottom line--I want to write books. Time-consuming horse games have no place in that.

Bottom line--I want to write books.

That is so much what it boils down to, especially if you're working full time. There are so many things I love to do that I can't because it's hard to just dip my toe in... my hobbies tend to be all too time consuming. You have to weigh just about everything against the time it will take away from writing.

I'm proud of you for your dedication. :)

Rosemary--Thank you! But I'll be much more impressed with my level of dedication once I actually produce a finished book. (g)

How is yours coming? I know you got that draft sent off to the editor--or was it the agent/ I've lost track. I hope all goes well with it!

Chantal

Thanks, Chantal! I'm pretty excited. I have an agent now, and she has submitted my book to several editors. So! Fingers crossed!

get a bot....if you can't code one, hire one(a human bot this time) *wink*

Think of them as your... managing assistant or whatever.

but seriously though, i can empathize with you. So little time, so much to do. One has to seriously sacrifice something for another thing these hectic days.

Chris--Hehe! Yep, that's what I need, a Personal Assistant--not just one for work, though that would be nice--but also one for at home. (g)

Though frankly, I could live with simply having a flunkey who could handle my telephone calls at work!

How is the Nautica project coming? I'm so glad you want to reopen it!

Chantal

yup, that's the one, PA! Seriously!

And about nautica, i've stopped for a while since it seem pointless to post when your other buddies has some important projects that has to be finished. The guys on the other list were no help either...nothing to read these days but spam.

Considered recruiting but with no info on nautica it seems foolish. xD One of these days tho...
