Wil, I read your blog on a daily basis (or whenever you find time to post), heh. While I'm a programmer by trade, I do love to write and I understand exactly where you are. The problem is that you have your brain in the way of your heart. There is a scene in Finding Forrester that Sir Connery tells the young writer to sit down and write. The young writer asks, "Write what?" "Any thing, just write. Don't think, write." Your brain comes into the picture when you are ready to edit not during the discovery (first draft). Don't think about the story, think about the characters and what they are supposed to do or not do, let them carry the story not you. Don't get in the way. Anyways that is my advice...

Wil, Not only did you get me hooked onto BG, but my wife watches them with me. Friday nights are hard for us to watch them so we tape them and watch them in twos and threes. The season three final show is two hours....it stopped recording at 90 mins! Arg. Right during the critical scene of the show when...... Ask EJO if he realizes that he is now going to be a sci-fi icon for the rest of his life. No matter what he has done in the past or future this will be the benchmark of his career and if he understood that when he accepted the role. Triston

I used to play this game ALL the time. It was great while I was 'sleeping' under the covers. I used the game for school as we did a 'comercial' for it in our public speaking class. Wow thanks for that trip(fall) down amnesia lane. Triston
