Right now though, one whim has been replaced by another. Specifically, I have had a strong urge to work on mafia theory. This is something I am known for doing, of course. It's one of the things I am renowned for, actually. I do mafia theory work. I teach it, I preach it, I put it up for others to read.
Aside from me doing a lot of revising and updating and chronicling (that is, putting up works of theory that weren't as visible before), I have also written a fair amount with plans to write a ton more. Yet more than that. More than that, an idea which is years' old has come back to me and I'm incredibly tempted to give it another shot:
Writing an actual theory book on the game of mafia itself. As in. Publishing a textbook about how to play mafia. Now! I would have to start over from scratch. Whatever notes I had on the subject before are looooooooooooooooong gone. I don't think I could track them down.
...But I doubt I'd need to, since while there would certainly be data lost, a lot of what I have written is stuff which I would be rewriting today anyway. Still, though. This is something which I'm honestly, seriously considering, because I actually think that I could spin an interesting narrative sharing good, unique perspectives on the game with good insight the full way.
The main problem is that while I'm sure I could fill it with plenty of content...I haven't a clue how to write a textbook. I wouldn't know what order to put it in or what format to use. It'd be just me randomly guessing as to how to write an educational book about the game: what it is, how it is played, how to play it better, and the like.
So I'm not sure if I'll actually do it.
But I want to do it.
