Those of you who also frequent Ana Mardoll’s Ramblings will find this somewhat familiar.  Here, as there, it was requested that there be a regular post to talk about writing projects (and other artwork-creation). Thus this post exists.

What are you working on? How are you feeling about it? What thoughts and/or snippets would you like to share? How does your activism work into your art? What tropes are you hoping to employ and/or avoid? Are there any questions you’d like to ask or frustrations you’d like to vent?  Writing workshop below!

Open Thread: Mid Month Check In, April 2017

(by chris the cynic)

What have you been doing of late?  How are you?  Are you still alive?  So forth.

[As a reminder, open thread prompts are meant to inspire conversation, not stifle it. Have no fear of going off topic for there is no off topic here.]

Open Thread: Stories you want to play/watch/read

(by chris the cynic)

It’s no secret that my creativity isn’t at it’s best right now, so this is basically a copy from memory of a previous open thread prompt.

There are more stories out there than any one person could experience, but in spite of this there are some massive holes in coverage.  Places where there are tons of potential stories, but hardly any to no real stories.

So what are the stories you want but do not have?  Games you’d like to play that no one has made, movies you’d like to watch that no one has produced, books you’d like to read that no one has written?

This question has the potential to be about justice (things with marginalized groups portrayed as actually people not exotic flavor, for example, can make the world a better place) but it doesn’t have to be (if you want to play a four dimensional first person platformer, that’s justice neutral but certainly interesting and worth sharing.)

Open Thread of Openness

(by chris the cynic)

I’m not really in the right brain-space to come up with a topic, so . . . whatever.  Whatever comes to (your) mind, that’s what the prompt is.
