Quit dreaming and do it.

Seriously. Start a publishing company. Start an ezine. Contact Wolfgang. Submit something.

I dont know that there is an easier thing to get into than game design. It is a small community and it is pretty open. Its up to you.

I did it. You can. You have the exact same qualifications I did when I started--you love D&D and you have a computer with an internet connection.

Now quit dreaming and do it!

Let me tell you a story. I also happen to play guitar. I'm good, but not great. I was in a band between college and law school. One night after our set was done opening for a more popular local band, some guy came up to me and said "I am a way better guitarist than you." I said "you probably are. But the difference between me and you is that you are sitting on the edge of your bed playing to nobody and I was just up there on that stage." It isnt all about skill. Sometimes you just have to go do it. Believe in yourself and go do it. Quit watching and do it. I dont want to sound like a Nike commercial. But that is the difference between those who dream and those who do. Its the doing.

Ask yourself, what is the first step I have to take. Then take it. Check Wolfgang's KQ site. See if they are accepting submissions. Email Paizo or download their submission guidelines. Then do it. Or go reserve a domain name. Whatever it is. Do it. Literally, that is the only difference between me and you. I did it. You can to.

BTW: I read this and decided to do it.

Great quote. I must have missed this one.

Good luck with the project. I am a beginning SEO, if the content increases let me know I would love the practice.

Take care,
Ian


Nice quote there Clark. In my circle of friends we call it being a "Talker" or being a "Doer." Most people talk about stuff, very few do it. At the end of the day, you want to be a Doer. Plus it's a great way to give your friends hell for flaking out on something. :)

Hmm, no word from the grandmaster himself.

Will keep checking.

Quoting what someone has said in a public space is usually not a problem, particularly if you cite the source. ... You can quote me on that.

Great idea, Zuxius, and a good time for it, I think.

Thank you! Gentlemen and Gentlewomen. You are of course, my most esteemed colleagues in all matters concerning Pathfinder. I appreciate your encouragement and promise I won't let you down. There are a lot of people that won't let you down.

As for proper motivation.

It helps to keep going when you look like a nerd.

It really helps.

Trust me,

really
