    Stonk make words into lightboard. He learn language from hum.. ~ahem~

    Ah, that's a big better. I'm a gamer and movie fan. I've been writing dumb stuff on the internet for ages, and love having a good chat. I sometimes get a bit stonky, so I hope you will forgive me when I do, but I try to be more empathetic than angery. Let's be tense friends!

    Hey have you guys ever done D&D? I'm running a Basic D&D game right now and running some classic modules. I love the kind of fluid background that most of the modules I've read utilize. I love the improve nature of the randomized events, and creating neat encounters on the fly. It's some good stuff.

    I'm also playing in a 1e game which is also utilizing classic modules. I'm doing Treasure Hunt right now, so no spoilers please!

    I am an OK writer, but have trouble with motivation. How do you people find motivation to keep going? It's really an overarching problem, so any help would be probably life-changing.

    Anyway, Stonk see you in comments. Stonk tired. Stonk sleep. Zzzzzz...

    Howdy :D Welcome aboard!

    As far as I am concerned, my motivation for writing usually comes from my desire to simply write. Writing relaxes me and it gives me a sense of worth that other activities don't manage to accomplish. Well, that is, as fast as the writing-process goes because retrospectively, as I read what I wrote, I don't keep the same good feelings about the entire affair. LOL. My view on the matter is probably not helpful. At all. But I find that the pure enjoyment of writing, giving life to stories&characters, building, creating, you get my drift, springs enough motivation and good will.

    If there's time... Please do tell me where to find some sane spare time to actually do the desired writing *crazy wink*

    :D

    welcome to the corner of crazy and insane. I think, as BFD said, motivation to actually write is very hard to come by. usually I just try to physically force myself to sit down and write, which usually just results in me doodling or getting up and playing videogames instead lol. I'm currently trying to get back into the swing of things though, but it's rather challenging just to find time to do anything.

    I am constantly on a Netflix binge. Actually, right now I'm watching Rasputin: The Mad Monk.

    Recently I've been watching Toast of London.
