I didn’t even try to convince myself to not play this tournament. I knew I’d get sucked back in.
I did, however, change teams. (I’m hoping this one will be my long term home though.) This time around I’m part of Team Paranormal Investigations…Team PI for short. We focus on shows and movies that center around investigating the unexplained and unusual. The shows that drew me in are Warehouse 13 and Eureka, with a side helping of Twin Peaks.
Since this is my third tournament, I’ve decided to take a different (and hopefully more realistic) approach. First, I’m not even going to attempt a dissertation. It took me 4 months to finish the last one and I didn’t make the end of tourny deadline. Second, I’m going to determine a few projects to work on each month of the tournament and plan to work on those only. I know the basic gist of my inspirations and I’m sure I won’t have a problem fitting them into specific challenges. Third, I’m going to make pieces that I can use or gift…I’m going to avoid making items simply for the sake of completing a challenge.
As for my blogging approach – I’m thinking that I’ll do a beginning of the month “plan summary” and and end of the month “round up.” If I’m particularly enjoying (or loathing) a particular project I might do a separate post about it. What I won’t do is only write about Nerd Wars stuff since it has to be less than interesting for anyone not as geeky as me.
And now I’m off to swatch and watch some Warehouse 13.
