When the Dust Settles




Time flies.  The old adage that implies that time only flies when you are having fun is bogus.  Time doesn’t stop for anyone or anything.  It doesn’t matter if you are sitting on a beach at some tropical paradise or sitting in solitary confinement.  Time keeps ticking away at 60,000,000,000 nanoseconds a minute.  Before you know it, it will just tick on by you if you aren’t careful.  That’s what seems to have happened to me this past year.

I formed Back to Dust Studios LLC back in January when the snow and ice were piling up.  It is now September, the dust has finally settled, and I am finally looking back and getting a chance to collect my thoughts and electronically log them for your reading enjoyment.  I don’t want to bore you with all of the details such as what I had for breakfast each day, but I do want to share with you this journey of pursuing a dream of starting an independent game development company.  I promise not to make these posts too long.  We have already established that time is ticking and I am sure you have things to do as do I.  I can’t promise to have a new post every Monday or anything like that, but I will try my best to keep you posted on what’s going on at the studio.

The important thing to keep in mind is the information I share is a look into my experiences and my opinions.  By all means I absolutely will not claim to be an expert in starting a gaming company.  I am not new to software and business, but I am new to this genre of software and business.  I will try to be transparent with my success and failures.  That way it might assist you in your journey by learning from someone else’s trial and error.  So, don’t get mad at me if you try something I did or didn’t do and get negative results.  One thing I have learned about entrepreneurship over the years is that there is no exact science to making it work.  Sometimes you really do have to be in the right place at the right time.

Now that we got our introduction to “When the Dust Settles” out of the way, I need to figure out what the next 40,200,000,000,000 nanoseconds of my day looks like.  Thanks for stopping by and please share this with your friends.
