Well, it's a day late out of the week for the WGWC, this is due to me having a bit of an illness that caused me to spend a great deal of time in bed. I was not able to compose this blog till now, nor was I able to add my own to the multitude that participated. All two of them (that I was able to find). I'm going to explain what's going to happen after this, but for now, let's go ahead and take a look at the two that submitted. I don't see a reason why I can't feature them both with a lengthy thought.
First, we have returning to us Orochi. His entry was titled: Death of a God, Birth of a Man.
Orochi goes in depth with his own character in Minecraft, giving him a back-story and a purpose of his own. He goes a bit deep in with creative writing as he crafts the reason (forgive the pun) for the character to have the ability to build, and also to respawn when killed. He also utilizes the use of screenshots from his game to accentuate the story narrative while still keeping it in an entry format that would be fitting for a journal. Orochi even expresses interest in continuing this segment later in the comments posted. Could be a regular thing for him in the future, so be sure to check it out.
Next we have an entry by Nick (Phlakes). The title is: A Game of Beans
I've not read World WarZ, so I believe I'm missing out on something here. Phalkes takes a rather present narrative (despite it being past tense) that seems to fit more into a fiction than that of a journal entry, but it does provide some entertaining verse on a man's quest for beans and how he risks his life in the process of such. I wish I could figure out more of what's going on, but I think I'd have to read the book to be able to figure it out. Give it a read and fill me in on any inside-jokes that you seem to pick out.
Now, for a slight explanation why there's no challenge this time around...
It's come near the end of the month, and this was a time where Jolt mentioned he would be the most active in helping this weekly challenge move along since he's nearly done with his 31/31 project. It's obvious that by a curse or sheer bad luck that I cannot seem to inspire people to participate in this. I do appreciate those that do all the more, but considering the reception that occurred when it first came along on Wolf's blog, this was rather lackluster and I've received NO feedback to give me any idea of what I can do to improve this, or get it known. I'm shooting in the dark by guessing what it needs or what to do next.
This will be able to kick off, but I believe Jolt is going to be the one to bring it to a greater light than what I can do. I'll help where I can.
