There are so many reasons not to write: real life, commitments, other projects, no ideas, writer’s block...video games...
Our reason to not-write is a little different. Our reason is research. And planning.
The first documents for Team Stripey Socks actually started in July, after months of brainstorming. Seven months of earnest planning amounted to a five thousand word development document, a seven-page checklist, Pinterest boards, near-daily Gchat sessions, and many, many texts.
What didn’t happen during that time?
A single post.
Writing about not-writing is a cop out, but this is writing about writing things that are not the thing to write. We have topic lists, half-started posts and endless research. To break the inertia, we will begin with a brief overview of some of the awesome to come:
- First Impressions posts for Battlestar Galactica and Doctor Who
- A practical guide to speed dating at Conventions
- A Doctor Who-themed food review
- The first post in a series on Cosplay
In short, some writing!
