Today on Sand & Steam - When you write, your first words will suck. And you have to be okay with that. Give yourself permission to suck.

There's a fabulous essay I read many years ago on the value of "shitty first drafts," written by a famous author whose name escapes me. Your headline seems like it's in the same vein.

Today at Sand & Steam, I talk about setting expectations. Not just for your writing, but for the entire process. It's not easy, but it's necessary.

I don't like Indy's chances in this one, but what a way to go! #IndianaJones #Cthulhu

Back in college I had a DM who used to combine the old Doctor Who RPG with Call of Cthulhu. Nothing like beating up Deep Ones with sonic screwdrivers, baseball bats and C-9 lol.

You want to start writing or designing, but don't know where to start? I've got some thoughts on where to start posted today over at Sand & Steam.

Want a low-magic, no dwarves, no Bonebonded start for a War of Metal and Bone campaign? Well, a fan submitted the document he gave to his players to do just that. Now I'm sharing it with you!

Apparently whoever made this list reeeeeally has a problem with perfectly correct words for genitalia... what do they want us to call them?  Lady and dude parts?  Oh, I forgot, dude is also on the list.  So is Ms. and gender ?!?

So weird!  It's like grammatical errors and pop culture and genitalia freak me out, so stop talking about them please!

I think the ultimate villain for this list would be a teacher who tries to connect with kids via rap lyrics instead of Shakespeare, and thinks that knowing basic sex ed is more important than knowing proper English grammer for a child's future :)  Actually, I could totally be that villain :)

If you're working on a Thing and you want to publish it, you'll eventually need to show it to someone else. Otherwise you risk your own mind becoming an echo chamber.

It's 1953, and the Russians have attacked the United States. Most of the men in he country are shambling corpses. It's up to you to protect your family.

Thanks, guys! It's +Elsa Sjunneson-Henry who came up with the idea and who will be writing it. In fact, I need to edit that post to reflect that. Forgot to enter that when I posted it.
