What's in the works...

Right now I have a bunch of ideas for different articles and posts that I'll be creating in this coming month.

I'll be transcribing some of my thoughts on:

--Playing doubles well, with a bonus feature on using the Ice Climbers in 2v2,
--Managing your emotions during play,
--Being efficient and choosing good options,
--Concentration and attention as in-game resource,

and others as well, probably.  There's also an exciting new project that I'm embarking on (non-smash related) that I plan to write about as well, if only to help myself achieve the goal.    So that's what you have to look forward to regarding this blog.  I hope it proves interesting!


  1. Looking forward to it.


  2. I always get super nervous during tournament matches. I don't know why. My hands shake, I sweat, I make bad decisions and try to forward smash mindlessly over and over in a way I never do in friendlies.

    I don't consciously feel nervous. I don't go to tournaments for the money, nor the pride. I go to them (as you said) for social reasons.

    But I do also do get this way during other stressful competitive events. Final exams always make me neurotic, the Academic decathlon made me a nervous wreck. But it always made me better at the competition, not worse.

    I wonder if you have any advice on how to prevent this sort of thing, or perhaps how to channel it into a more productive emotion. Thanks!
