  • Thu, 14:51: This makes it hard to accept being “merely competent,” but it also makes it hard to be willing to work at things to get better.
  • Thu, 14:52: I suspect this is the where the roots of “imposter syndrome” lie.
  • Thu, 14:53: “You’re not living up to your potential!” //RT @HantaMouse: “Why didn’t you finish/do better? You’re smarter than this. You must be lazy."
  • Thu, 14:54: It also means that when I encounter something that’s actually hard, I get frustrated quickly and want to give up.
  • Thu, 14:56: I won’t even start ranting about the “too bad you only got a B+” reaction from my parents. -.-
  • Thu, 14:58: These are the same parents who told me “Don’t get smart.” By which they meant “don’t talk back,” but of course that sounds mean.
  • Thu, 15:00: Anyway. All of this is mostly rant about a patch of writer’s block I’m going through. I have ideas, but I want them to be more brillianter.
  • Thu, 15:01: But by angsting over not having brilliant stories, I’m preventing myself from writing good ones, which doesn’t help anyone.
  • Thu, 15:02: Someone once described me as “dedicated to my own epicness.” I’m pretty sure they meant it as a compliment, but it kinda stung.
  • Thu, 15:03: RT @Slypenslyde: @the_gneech Yeah, I'm still struggling with realizing that "good" is hard as heck to get and "brilliant" is just ridiculou…
  • Thu, 15:04: Brilliant is so incredibly subjective. A lot of my most popular work has been stuff I tossed off and didn’t really care about.
  • Thu, 15:04: Uh… thanks? ;P //RT @DatBirdbrain: *hangs this on your wall* hope ideas come soon that aren't birdbrained. ;)
  • Thu, 15:05: What I really mean is I want an idea that -I- think is brilliant. ‘cos I’ve got plenty that are perfectly good enough “to sell” or whatev.
  • Thu, 15:06: Given that’s the case, I guess it must be ego. “It’s good enough to sell, but it’s not good enough to be A BOOK BY THE GNEECH."
  • Thu, 15:09: Maybe I should come up with a "pen name persona” who's a serviceable writer & start writing books for him-- he doesn’t have to be brilliant.
  • Thu, 15:12: Anyway! Enough ranting about that. I should really, y’know, actually do some work. ;)
  • Thu, 16:03: I’m actually only semi-joking on the whole pen name thing. I’ve thought about creating two or three “writing personas” for different topics.
  • Thu, 16:06: Stick with “The Gneech” for comics/furry related stuff, maybe do another for paranormal mystery stuff...
  • Thu, 16:07: Maybe a third who churns out cheesy fantasy novels...
  • Thu, 16:09: “It’s perfectly okay for Maxwell Keane to write cheesy Lord-of-the-Rings ripoffs, that’s what he was created for."
  • Thu, 16:10: To just pick a name at random. And hoping there’s no real Maxwell Keane who writes said ripoffs.
  • Thu, 16:17: RT @writerstears: I am doing a positively hideous job of time management today. Words are bouncing off my eyeballs. What are English.
  • Thu, 16:20: Anyway! Enough stalling. Monday’s comic isn’t gonna draw itself. And I’d be really mad at myself if I stumbled on it now.
  • Thu, 16:20: Going dark for a bit, tweeps. Thanks for listening to me ramble.
  • Thu, 16:46: Whoa, this just came in the mail from @FurtheMore. Thanks, you awesome furs! I had a great time. <3
  • Thu, 16:46: Now if only I drank beer. ;)
  • Thu, 16:49: *vibrates with caffeination* //RT @FASimple: *gives Coffee and Tea.*
  • Thu, 16:50: I’m on a low-hemoglobin diet. //RT @bearsyr: it holds other fluids! Coke, Pepsi, iced tea. The blood of the innocent.
  • Thu, 16:50: Matter o’ fact, I do! //RT @SeiferA: you drink root beer dontcha?
  • Thu, 16:50: Indeedy! //RT @Ambaaargh: Sure you can. Just slip a root in front of that beer and you're good to go. :U
  • Thu, 16:51: That too! //RT @Turnsky: @Ambaaargh or Ginger.
  • Thu, 18:23: Relevant.
  • Thu, 19:42: I’ve probably asked this before, but since “MOAR Suburban Jungle” is already in production, what would YOU like to see me write?
  • Thu, 20:50: So after downloading for seven hours, @WildStar just bombed out at 75% installed with the message “Patch Failed.” #cry
  • Thu, 20:51: Fortunately, restarting the installer seems to have picked up where it was with only a small amount of progress lost.
  • Thu, 20:53: RT @mangastudio: Are artists secretly biased to the left? or was it the other left? Interesting article. ^DS
  • Thu, 21:19: My router and my Mac don’t like each other. :P This annoys me.
  • Thu, 21:21: My network service is already cheesy. :P //RT @FASimple: That's when you sit them down over tea and have them talk it over with cheese!
  • Thu, 21:23: I would like to at least sign on and create a character before going to bed! ;P
  • Fri, 00:59: So @WildStar for the first 1/2-hour or so at least is pretty typical MMO fare, light-hearted space opera fun.
