RJ Alden Lackie: You don't need to commit to it or finish it. Just the act of pure creation often powers the mental engine beautifully. May 8, 2014 8:03:37 GMT *
Srini Madhavan: Yeah that might do it, will give it a go May 8, 2014 9:36:25 GMT
Dex Macleod: I'm really drunk for the first time in months! I know that Dex wasted typically results in some kind of pointlessly long winded post but, tonight, all I've got is advice. You wanna be a good writer? Type Billy Squier into your spotify search box. May 10, 2014 8:24:40 GMT
Dex Macleod: And then, obviously, you should listen to some Billy Squier. May 10, 2014 8:26:31 GMT
Dex Macleod: Sober now and I stand by what I said. Billy effinn Squier. May 10, 2014 16:09:39 GMT
Srini Madhavan: Just got into work with my head buzzing with a number potential web series ideas. Today is going to be difficult to get through... May 11, 2014 23:22:57 GMT
RJ Alden Lackie: Excellent stuff, Srini! Use that creative energy to push through the workday. :) May 12, 2014 17:04:08 GMT
Srini Madhavan: Oof, 13 hour day at work finally over. May 13, 2014 12:32:32 GMT
RJ Alden Lackie: Huzzah! That sounds exhausting, mate. May 13, 2014 12:34:09 GMT
Srini Madhavan: Yeah, gonna hang for a bit then crash before an absurdly early start. Fantastic articles by the way! May 13, 2014 12:39:59 GMT
RJ Alden Lackie: Well, glad you're hanging. :) It gets lonely round here sometimes, haha. May 13, 2014 12:44:23 GMT
RJ Alden Lackie: Thanks re the articles by the way. I love stocking the Reading Materials forum. ^_^ May 13, 2014 12:44:43 GMT
Srini Madhavan: yooo waddup May 14, 2014 9:54:28 GMT
RJ Alden Lackie: Hey! May 14, 2014 10:54:34 GMT
RJ Alden Lackie: Totally didn't notice that. The joys of pushing through a draft that's giving you attitude... May 14, 2014 10:54:53 GMT
Srini Madhavan: haha all good. Has it gotten any better? May 14, 2014 21:36:00 GMT
RJ Alden Lackie: It seems to move forward in rocket bursts and then die for a day. Just starting my final rush to the end of the first draft now... May 16, 2014 17:15:13 GMT
Srini Madhavan: we're up to 80 users now! Jun 13, 2014 1:25:47 GMT
RJ Alden Lackie: Huzzah! Jun 13, 2014 2:45:46 GMT *
Srini Madhavan: - sending you a PM in a bit :) Jun 22, 2014 23:25:54 GMT
