writing in Hungarian

Dear readers,
first of all, I'm sorry about being a rare poster.
Now, onto business.

As some of you might remember, my WIP is about a person who finds pleasure in computer games. Guess what. I find much, too.
Now, I'm in a multiplayer online game (those are the worst, believe me) and it takes quite a time from me. Sometimes I find it hard to accomplish my normal duties.
The server I'm on will finish somewhere between late December to mid February, depending on the state of the war we're fighting.
Does it sound ridiculous?
Or is it a shame?
Chances are, both.
One might think this 6 months I've been playing this game so far is a waste of time. I'm not sure.
I keep telling myself I've made some friends, I've learned some more about human nature, and most of all, I've learned a lot about myself.
I also keep telling myself that this experience will help me write my WIP with a better grip on the subject, that is, being addicted to a game.
I hope this won't turn a lie.
I hope I do write this thing of mine.
The funny thing is that some of the playersI'm playing with have started writing a series of short stories that revolve against the topic of the game.
They started writing a story set in a medieval aura.
Guess what.
Did I join by adding a story to the flow of stories written by fellow players?
And I loved it.
I incorporated some of my fellow virtual friends into my story. Those who read it, liked it.
That was all for today.
