Hey kiddos, I registered a few days ago to have a resource of other author's as they write their novels. A bit about me: Writer and Creative Director at a place called Gearbox Software. It's a video game company (Brothers in Arms, Borderlands-- recently announced, Borderlands 2, snap.) and I've also been published in comics a few times. Also, my mom published tons of my early work on the fridge-- I like to think of it as my Crayola period. Novels are a particular beast, with limitless tiny complications that can arise. So, thought I'd ask for thoughts on stuff I'm working on and offer thoughts on stuff you guys are working on. Name's Mikey. I've been known to abuse the semicolon as some kind of degenerate grammatical glue should the need arise. You might have noticed me posting in other threads. I've already noticed that jumping in on random conversations can help me warm up for writing in the evenings. Which is truly helpful. Cheers!
