If you write a lot, you know that your words can come back to haunt you or hype you. The truth of it is, once you write something and post it to the InterWeb, many, many people get to read it. You can only hope it isn’t taken out of context or rouses nations to go to war.
Father Geek reviewed the wonderful card game Perfect Stride a while ago and greatly enjoyed it. In typical “wordy fashion” (as I have been accused of), I waxed poetically about the game. I can’t help it; I write a lot when I am passionate about something. You should see what I write in birthday cards to loved ones. Pure epic wordiness. A simple signature will never do.
I was humbled to learn that Father Geek was recently quoted, not once but twice, on the Creative Play Retailer web site. It is a fantastic feeling when you realize people actually read and appreciate what you write. It also serves as a strong reminder that words, like a board with a rusty nail protruding from it, can persuade people to think differently.
