Another Great Morning

I’ve improved the Mouse, I woke up seeing how to make it better, and now the mouse buttons look like mouse buttons. Then I worked on the microphone, and the cord and microphone itself looks amazing. I still want to get the Keyboard done, so that’s coming next - and I’ll show you a render just before Lunch. After that, I’m going to improve my Business Plan. With all the Crypto advancements on Minds, I need to update it with profit projections. So, it’s a good morning. I hope your day has been just as awesome. #minds #goodmorning #writinglife #artistlife #creativelife

If the mainstream doesn’t have what you’re looking for, then look elsewhere If you find what you’re looking for, then promote it If it doesn’t have a community, then try to build one If it’s still niche and your community isn’t growing, then discuss it with others so it can spread And if all that still isn’t enough to fulfill you, then make your own project, with all the passion you brought staying at your back the whole way

Complete Storytelling for video game fundamental blogs - Storytelling for Video Games 101 - https://www.minds.com/newsfeed/1172584482265604096 I go through the basics and definitions - everything from the inciting incident to the final conflict and resolution. This is a must for creating a well thought out story in your video game. PCA lesson 1 - The theme of Red Dead Redemption 2 - https://www.minds.com/newsfeed/1175072544098824192 Themes are the central focus of a story. In positive character arcs (PCA) the protagonist goes from the lies they believe into understanding a new truth about themselves. Both Arthur Morgan and John Marsden show this type of growth. PCA Lesson 2 - The Curious Lives of Arthur Morgan and John Marsden - https://www.minds.com/newsfeed/1175815278595657728 Now we get into the nitty gritty on how to write a Positive Character arc by looking at the events of RDR2 and how they change Arthur’s and John’s perspective. PCA Lesson 3 - How Dynamic Antagonists Create Powerful Stories - https://www.minds.com/newsfeed/1176544916493373440 Now I look at how Micah, the main antagonist of RDR2 fits right into the theme of the story by being so two faced about his allegiance to anything. SCA Lesson 1 - The themes of Horizon Zero Dawn - https://www.minds.com/newsfeed/1178023594692222976 For Static Character Arcs (SCAs), I use Horizon Zero Dawn because they are written differently than positive character arcs. While PCAs focus on personal truths, SCAs focus on world truths. Horizon Zero Dawn is a great example because it’s the world that has something wrong with it, not Aloy. SCA Lesson 2 - Aloy’s Heroic Journey - https://www.minds.com/newsfeed/1178412322986676224 I focus on how Aloy fulfills the elements of the hero’s journey - from wanting to deny the call of adventure by staying with Rost, to returning to the sacred lands after learning about Hades and it’s mission - returning with the ‘Elixir’ that helps the Nora. Aloy becomes a catalyst that helps bring everyone together to fight what is wrong with the world. SCA lesson 3 - Hades - https://www.minds.com/newsfeed/1178705626649796608 This blog is all about Hades, who drives the story of HZD from the very beginning to Aloy’s triumph at the Spire. In SCA’s the antagonist has to be what is wrong with the world - i.e. Hades is the representation of the theme of the story. NCA lesson 1 - The theme of Mass Effect - https://www.minds.com/newsfeed/1180230085774630912 This blog begins the journey to look at Mass Effect as a Negative Character Arc. First, I change a couple of details to tell a much better story - to give a much better theme than the one told in the trilogy. Then I examine how the MET told that story. NCA lesson 2 - Shepard’s Fall From Grace - https://www.minds.com/newsfeed/1180952672422019072 Now we look at all the different decisions Shepard can make that emphasizes how wrong they can be while standing against the Reapers. Ultimately, the doom the Earth and send the galaxy into a dark age. NCA lesson 3 - https://www.minds.com/newsfeed/1182756620731850752 Now we look at the Reapers and how they fit into the Mass Effect world, as both a mirror of Shepard and as what is wrong with the world as well.

Complete list of Life Hack blogs - Smashing the Good-Bad Life Hack - https://www.minds.com/newsfeed/1183481365544103936 I talk about how difficult tasks and lives make us stronger and more capable. They always require sacrifice to give us the strength to handle difficult tasks. Life Hack 1 - Take Care of Yourself - https://www.minds.com/newsfeed/1183119526182952960 Jordan B. Peterson recommends treating ourselves like people we are required to take care of. It may be difficult, but if you make sacrifices you will reap rewards. Water instead of pop, exercise instead of sitting on your ass all day, making food from scratch instead of getting canned stuff. Life Hack 2 - Prayer, Meditation and journaling to lift up your life - https://www.minds.com/newsfeed/1183849212284928000 Both Prayer and Meditation allows us the activate both the self-evaluation and self-soothing parts of our brains, so we can start asking serious questions about our life without being judgmental. This will help us come up with good life plans, instead of crappy one. Life Hack 3 - Establish a Routine - https://www.minds.com/MakeGamesGreatAgain/blog/lifehack3-establisharoutine-1210994886020059136 There’s only 24 hours in a day and a 168 hours in a week, so establishing a routine for your creativity is important. It is the only way we can continue to improve our craft through research and perfecting our work. Life Hack 4 - 5S your Room and Your Life https://www.minds.com/MakeGamesGreatAgain/blog/lifehack4-5s-your-life-1213200261136416768 Every project is all about how much effort we put into it. 5S is all about creating and environment and project that shines. The more orderly you create your environment, the better you can create! Life Hack 5 - Kill your Concerns https://www.minds.com/MakeGamesGreatAgain/blog/lifehack5-killyourconcerns-1213560493122576384 A major contributor to a lack of progress for your goals is distractions, concerns and fears. With modern ideas like fear setting, we can turn the unknown into something to be curious about, rather than being afraid. If you’re concerned about something, make plan around that. Life Hack 6 - Life Long Learning https://www.minds.com/MakeGamesGreatAgain/blog/lifehack6-lifelonglearning-1213857928213331968 Ultimately, you need to continually research and learn everything about your chosen field. If you think learning has ended with high school/college than you are doing a huge disservice to yourself. Get right into learning on a continual basis - read books, watch and follow tutorials!
