Content Reincarnated

Many, MANY years ago I used to do a column on worldbuilding called Way With Worlds.  So I was thinking of repackaging it, rewriting some of it, and then putting it free online.  If you’re interested, by the way, let me know.

This is making me think how eBooks can actually revive all sorts of dead, forgotten, leftover, and otherwise unused materials.  How many of us  have something that we might as well just blow a weekend and put online?  How many of us have something that will be worth it to someone (and will reach them as it’s free)?

This also makes me wonder how many amazing things people may or could casually put online that we may miss.  Then again if fifty people enjoy some great RPG adventure you created and forgot about, isn’t it worth it?

Then let’s ask what our legacy may be.  How much of this could outlive us?  How many people could be immortalized for a short time by posting works online, or even have them posted posthumously?

It’s humbling, intriguing, and wonderful.
