The good part about working for Major Spoilers is having the creative outlet to talk about the things that preoccupy me and access to an audience that cares about comic books, bad movies, D&D and the adventures of Captain Marvelous and his intrepid crew. (Well, at least parts of the audience care about some of those things.) The only real downside, other than random d-bag internet comments and the inevitable grammar Nazis, comes when I don’t know if I’m up to the task of writing. Even I lose my smile sometimes, and it can be a difficult task to recharge your creative batteries in the face of deadlines, real life, and spilling a quart of water in your laptop because you are $&@#ing stupid.
The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) wanders the streets, covered with mice, licking a tiny piece of wood that it found in the gutter, asking: What helps you to regroup and refocus your creative energies?
