The Iron Man streak comes to an end. Yesterday was the first time since Dungeon’s Master began that we missed a day. Until yesterday we’d published something every weekday since we began back in February 2009.
After more than three years I finally decided that it was time to take a short rest. Since September when Wimwick went back to school full time, I’ve written the lion’s share of our articles. Of the 147 articles we’ve posted since September 1, I’ve written 128 of them. With most of our articles clocking in around 1,000 words (usually more) that’s over 128,000 words in seven months. The average novel contains approximately 50,000 words. So following this logic I’ve written the equivalent of 2+ novels since September. This is of course on top of my day job and the time I spend playing D&D. Put into this context I’m amazed I haven’t collapsed from exhaustion before now.
Don’t worry, we’re not closing up shop (that’s just crazy talk!), we’re just taking a week off to rest. Despite the break, I will still provide the weekly write-up of D&D Encounters on Thursday. Next week we’ll be back to our regular daily publishing cycle. To all of our loyal readers I apologize for the unexpected break, but I think that you’ll agree I’ve earned a few days off. Thank you for your understanding and your dedication to Dungeon’s Master.
