Venus - HOUNDTRACK, Too Much

I’m laughing ‘cos I’m going back through the tracks over the last few weeks and the energy level has been rising slowly but surely - I guess a reflection of just how much external input I need to keep going. Oh - not that it’s that dramatic - it’s just that as we slide into the end of the year I find that I’m pretty knackered and need more energetic music to keep me in the zone…

My writing journey began, without a doubt, with the Final Fantasy games of the late 90s/early 2000s. Text heavy and without any voice actors, you had to prepared to do a LOT of reading in order to enjoy the story. It was more immersive than any book I'd ever read, and the settings and the characters were so vivid that it wasn't hard to spend hours lost in the worlds that lay beyond the controller…
