World of Warcraft Classic Time Sink

Tuesday September 3, 2019 | By Hieronymus Hawkes | Blogging

wowclassicI made the mistake of downloading World of Warcraft Classic late last week. My boys started playing, then my wife got an invite from an old friend that was in our original raiding guild, that they were putting the band back together. It was enough to draw me in.

I had great intentions this weekend of putting the finishing touches on a piece that I had received feedback on. I had plans to write a bunch of post for the blog.

None of that happened.

I played WoW Classic all weekend. Pretty much nonstop. I think we will be doing our first raid either tonight or tomorrow.

In order to finish my first novel I gave up playing these types of games. I didn’t play during my MFA program either. It is a time sink.

I will say that going back to classic reminded me of why I played it. It is fun. You earn everything you get and there is something intrinsically good for the endorphins you release. I am going to have to step back from it . . . well, maybe not today. But at some point, if I ever want to get any more writing done . . .

Anyway, it was nice seeing you all again, I have some ears to collect.

    1. My original account is closed. I’m playing on one of my alternate accounts that my kids played on. We quit playing live about 5 years ago. I have to say I am really having fun on Classic. Not sure for how long, though. I have to find a new balance.

I would love to hear from you!
