The writings of an anthropophobic gamer

It’s been a long time since I last wrote on this website, long enough that for a while I was thinking I would just let the site fade away. I’ve had it for over 15 years now and in that time it seems like life has left this site neglected more often than not.

Still, it is a very special website for me. When I was a kid I wanted to create a line of products for use with 25mm lead fantasy figures, (yes, they were made from lead once upon a time). In my planning for that I decided to create the product line name Fantasy Scene. Very creative, I know. The problem came along when I saw a similar line to fantasy scenery items already bearing the name Fantasy Scene on the folded over cards on the plastic bags. I returned to the planning and came up with Fantascene. Brilliant, both words combined into one… and again, someone else had a line of fantasy scenery products with the brand name Fantascene. Young entrepreneur hopes crushed – for about fifteen minutes, when I decided that if I could not use the word I wanted I would use alternate spellings.

Phantascene. It turned out a better move than I had realized when I first wrote it down, because on closer inspection of the words I wanted to use I realized an underlying meaning I could use as a business name to cover all the interests I had:

Phantasm – a figment of the imagination
Scene – a setting in a story

In one word I could summarize my line of fantasy scenery, my writing work, even my dreams of one day starting up a film production studio.

Okay, so that last might have been a big big of a dream for an anthropophobic, but back then I was still courageous enough to be planning going to college and holding a job outside the home.

As for the website, I’m not ready to give up on it just yet. I’ve been thinking a lot recently about what I plan to do with the site and I still think it is a good place for me to work on my writing and for me to share my passion that is gaming. My computer might now be able to handle dong 3D graphics and videos, but someday I hope to be able to afford a system that can, and when I am able to I will most certainly be adding those to the mix here.

For now – this website will be the writings of an anthropophobic gamer seeking to make a living writing from home about the things she loves – gaming, writing, and videography.
