Friggin' Dialog Block!!!
Posted July 7, 2001 - 17:52:16

I've been a creative fountain these last couple days, I've been drawing like mad, getting sketches done, even scripting the plot for Brandi Installment #1 (oh yeah, check out the One Sheet that's going into FanBoy's Relaunch) -- so when I sat down to write Episode 17 for the Lost Episodes - one that has a Plot written, and results finalized - I found myself unable to write the dialog essential to the setting.

Geh. I mean, I've done this before - I should be able to do this, right? Wrong. I think the problem is I've raised my standards for myself. I used to just put out whatever came first, not really caring about the results. I can't do that anymore it seems. If I wrote the same first four Lost Episodes today, I would toss them out as trash. Utter trash. I'm sorry, but I don't think they're anything more than deluded, self righteous garbage... and I wrote them!

In anycase, Episode 17 has been delayed because of this... AND IT SUCKS! Well, on the upside, Episodes 17, 18, and 19 ought to all be released on the same day, so when the fans get new episodes... they'll definitely get new episodes.

And that reminds me, what the heck is up with some of the e-mails I get about the Lost Episodes? I mean, mail like "You guys are great", "You guys suck, or even "When the hell will you update?" is fine. I encourage that kind of feedback, even when it's negative (If a joke didn't work, It helps when it gets pointed out). But what's with the "You guys should do [Insert plot idea]" or "You should use this [insert character idea]"... and even more "Ask me before you use this [stupid idea]"? I mean, why? When I started the Lost Episodes I thought "Hmmm, I have an idea for some Fanfiction", so did I go e-mailing my ideas to Transformers: World's Worst? No. I went and wrote my own fanfiction. So why is it that people feel the need to send me their ideas? Get off your ass and write it your own damned self. If it's any good, you can get the pleasure of dealing with "What the f*** is wrong with you guys, Cheetor is Great!" e-mails that I so cherish to read. And don't tell me I have to ask your permission. Even if I did want your stupid plot idiocies, I wouldn't bother asking... Why you ask? Because you e-mailed me. When you put a note into a suggestion box at a company, do you get credit if they implement your ideas? No. And they don't have to. You're giving your consent just by suggesting it, dingo.
