So I've been in a bit of a slump for a bit. I keep coming up with ideas for games, stories, media, etc. And I start on something then go "Meh, someone's already doing it better.", or "No one's really going to give a shit about this." Don't get me wrong, I'm at one with the concept of doing something not for an audience, but only doing it because you want to, but completing projects has never been my strong suit. Given so much stimulation from so many places, I find myself getting side-tracked. I've done well to make progress on a few things, taking time to keep notes on ideas I keep coming back to, one day I'll plan around a D&D campaign, then next I'll have plans for a new table top game system, then a VLOG, then a internet radio show, then a t.v. series, on and on and on.
I feel like I've got really solid ideas, like every time I get a blank sheet of paper I can put a strong paragraph or so down, but as soon as I start writing or typing my concentration leaks like a sieve. Even when I get those inspiration moments, I get that "eureka! this is a big idea!" feeling, then when I write it down I have a measly sentence that says "They're in a Desert!" and I can't even remember why it's relevant.
I think that's why I love collaborating with friends. It's like we're really awesome vines, and when we get together it turns into a giant trellis-work of creative genius. Maybe that also helps explain my addiction to table top role playing games, because of the collaborative effort involved of telling a story. Maybe I just need to get out more.
