I don't know about you, but I have a ton of stupid (and some not so stupid) ideas floating around in my head. Many are also floating around on my hard drive. I want so bad to write something. Anything. Just make something make sense. Make something sound good.
And I can't!
I hates me some writer's block.
I had been working on a story and got about 18 pages into it, when I realized that I was writing to write and it actually didn't make sense. So, I set out to make it make sense. In doing so, I got annoyed and quit. I tell Doc all of the time not to do that. So why can't I listen to my own advice? Pigheaded, I suppose. Or maybe not. Maybe I am just far too optimistic in my writing. I get the opinion that I can sit down and write anything. Or maybe it's pessimism. Maybe I just think that no matter what I write it's awful.
I can't even make an adventure make sense. All I want to do is send players into a dungeon and run them through a Baldur's Gate type thing where it's all hack and slash and it doesn't have to make sense.
Then again, I want a fabulous plot to go along with all of that hack and slash. A plot where they save the princess, get the wealth and fame, and someone gets the princess. All the while, hacking goblins to bits and slashing ghouls to shreds.
Why oh why does it have to be so hard?
just orcs, please
