The Basics

Creating things is hard, especially if you’re posting them on the internet. This site aims to be a tool in your quest to keep up. Here’s some recommendations to get you started.

Get a pocket notebook and a pen

You never know when an interesting idea will hit you. Always be carrying paper to write it down, so you don't forget exactly how it was worded when you thought it was good. Moleskine notebooks are a durable choice. You can also use your cell phone, but it's sometimes easier to remember to write things down when you have a separate place dedicated to doing so.

Likewise, you should never be without something to write with. If you think you'll be doing some sketching, maybe you want something a little more fancy. But for the most part, any pen will do. Consider getting a little pen for your keychain, so you’ll never be without.

Wait before you trash

Don’t throw away your scrap paper right away. Come back to it later. Many times, something that seemed obvious initially will strike a chord later. Likewise, a good idea today may lose its charm quickly.

Share

There can be a fear around sharing your work. You might be afraid someone could steal it or kill your passion for it. But, there’s a definite value to sharing whatever stupid thing you come up with. Sometimes you’ll find people will love an idea you almost threw away.

Break the rules
