The thing I like most about my main Discord, Zdiscord, is the number of deep conversations I’ve had there. It’s a bit of a mess, and it’s semi-private in that you must read the rules and receive a certain role in other to start reading or posting, but once you do, there are many opportunities to learn more about yourself or fellow “Z-Humans.” The joke is that most of the stuff there starts with Z.
Today, the day I wrote this and not the day I published this, was a day where my mind had ambitions that my physicality couldn’t act on. Will the day I publish this be any different? There are many things in life that I’d like to do, or must do, but when I have to go rest my pained spine twice or thrice daily, it’s increasingly more difficult to feel ambitious about much of anything.
I’ve been exploring ideas about how I can expand my livestreaming into something that could be more helpful for others. I had been using it mainly for building props for my writing projects, but as I’ve grown the channel out, I’ve found that people don’t really care what I’m doing, they’re there to hang out with me, which does carry with it some social responsibility. What can I do to tell stories in positive ways?
I did my first legitimate digital art livestream today. For those that have known me for my Minecraft/Art/Chat streams, it’s a bit of a departure, but for those who have known me for a while know, this was another side to my personality. Like adding in some videogame streams into the mix, this is my way of introducing new viewers to the wild, weird, and wonderful things that I want to livestream in the future.
