April 2020 – Asundered!

Yes, I am aware asundered isn’t a word, but I don’t care! My website, my word rules. Ha! Anyway, welcome to my monthly wrap-up article! Let’s see what went down in my online life during these past 28-31 days…

What did I get myself into?? I mean…. er, my Blapril posting spree is officially over! My self-goal was to post every day in April. I missed yesterday since I just couldn’t write (brain… foggy), and back-date-publish cheated 4 times over the course of the month, but I sorta accomplished my goal.

29 total posts in April (including this one) is not too shabby, especially considering I didn’t plan for this AT ALL. This is also my second month in blogging existence so that’s something cool too.

The biggest most awesome achievement from Blapril, however, was the opportunity to connect with a new blogging community. Thank you so much to everyone who read my articles and for writing the awesome articles I got to read. I am very grateful to Belghast for making this whole thing happen!

Quantic Foundry Gamer Motivation Profile

I normally game with my heart and not so much my head. That’s pretty much how IRL Solarayo operates in general too. I’ve always been ruled by my oversensitive emotions, and to my despair, my logic often gets lost in all the internal chaos and whatnot. I’ve proudly grown A LOT in the past year, though. My new motto is: “Always follow my heart… under constant supervision of my brain.”

Back to the logic, and dialing back the feelz, the magnificent MagiWasTaken over at Indiecator kindly nominated me for this Quantic Foundry Gamer Motivation Profile tag thingy. Thank you very much, dude!

Basically, you take a survey about your gaming habits via Quantic Foundry and analyze the results with the questions in the tag. Logic isn’t something I usually apply to my beloved video gaming hobby, but hey, I’ll give it a go. For gamer science!

Novel Notes: Each Little Universe

ZOMG! An upcoming soon-to-be-super-famous published author gave me an advance copy of their debut novel?? This is so freaking cool… ahem. Sorry. Let me try to pull out my professional-ish article writing tone. I think I have one of those… probably? (I… um, don’t think I do. Oh well!)

In all seriousness, that was one of my primary objectives for creating Ace Asunder about 2 months ago: To promote great indie content creators on their path to content creation stardom. Thank you so much to the great author Chris Durston for giving me this opportunity to do that! Also, if there are any other indie aspiring authors, game developers, artists, content-in-general creators out there reading this and want me to babble-boost about your work, feel free to drop me a line and I’ll consider it.

Disclaimer: I also consider Chris one of my closest friends so my opinions of his work may be a bit biased because I know what an awesome human he truly is. Supporting my rare friends relentlessly and however I can while they pursue whatever they dream of doing is just how I am.

Seriously Geeky Sundays: Creativity

Be true to the creative you! That’s the best advice I can give to anyone creating content. Don’t try to smash yourself into a mould so you can follow the path to “success” some other content creator took. When all content is essentially a clone of what worked, everything looks the same and you don’t stand out much, eh? Unleashing your true creativity is the key to shining bright against dull trending backdrops.

Speaking of cool creative people, the awesome Heather over at Just Geeking By started a series of blogging prompts called Seriously Geeky Sundays. This is my response to part 4 of her multi-week event. Definitely check out Heather’s creative prompts and take part in the fun if you want! I’m absolutely loving her questions so far.

So… without anymore intro babbling from me, here are my answers to Just Geeking By’s creatively awesome questions for this week. Thank you, Heather!

Operation! NES Edition

This article is a satirical and not-at-all-serious recount of how a quack video game console surgeon replaced the faulty 72-pin connector on her aging original NES console. Fellow console surgeons who actually want to preform the procedure themselves are advised to consult an actual guide located elsewhere on the internet.

The Diagnosis

I had met the patient at a flea market in the summer of 2015. At the time, he appeared to be in good health and even had his original packaging. Not only that he also came with Super Mario Bros./Duck Hunt and one of those classic flashy light guns. The NES era was a generation before my time and I know there are many classic games I missed out on from those glory days of gaming. I decided I’d give the old guy a new home, and I also picked up the original two Zelda games along with him. When I brought him home, however, his hidden illness was quickly revealed…

Real Neat Blogger Award Thingy 2

Six more blog posts to go and my unplanned 30-day Blapril posting spree is over. Almost there! And thanks to the awesome Lloyd Frangos over at the great UnCapt, Ace Asunder has received our second Real Neat Blogger Award tag! Thank you so much for the content to post about today, dude.

There are official rules and stuff with this but the gist of it is answer 7 questions and tag others. Let’s jump right into that process then!

Super Happy Love Blog Award Thingy

True love heals and conquers hate and misery, which the world seems to have a lot of these days sadly. When I’m feeling at my worst, trying to help the people I care about and focusing on the positive things around me helps keep my darkness at bay. Yep. I have a lot of things going on right now that make me really freaking sad, but I have a lot of really good things going on now too.

The glass is not half full nor half empty… I shattered it and focused on living in the now. It’s just a damn glass with liquid in it, and is in no way an accurate representation of my overall optimism levels.

Anywho, the super lovely Later Levels nominated me for this lovely Super Happy Love Blog Award created by the super personable Pinkie’s Paradise. Thank you so much! More of these love and positivity things are definitely needed on the internet and I’m honored for the opportunity to partake.

Novel Notes: Icefall

A post-apocalyptic YA tale with no shoehorned romances? Well, gee, sign me right up! One of my biggest issues with novels classified as YA is that a stupid romance (or awful love triangle) seems to be required, thus creating awful relationships between characters that make me eye roll so damn hard. There’s none of that crap in Icefall and lots of action scenes. Both huge reasons why I enjoyed it!
