So, yeah, I'm coming out of my shell/closet and confessing: I'm gripped by a dark age, in all its foulness. I keep getting distracted by other things, whether they're writing or video games or whatever. Of course, though, I'm not about to give up! A strong dose of creativity needs to be injected into my brain. So, anyone got ideas how to prevent dark ages? What I mean is, don't just say "build a castle, build a car, etc," but post real ideas about techniques, etc. I guess what I mean is specific ideas for preventing becoming an old loser. :9 I'm sure others will also benefit from this thread.

The Dark Ages are about as avoidable/preventable as the Bubonic plague was in Medieval times. And are you calling me and many others on here have become 'old losers'? :9


On a different note, I found the wording of this sentance to be absolutely hilarious, considering you meant it in a totally different context:

Terrific. Wow, I'm in trouble. And no, or at least, you haven't chased me off your lawn yet.

That's because you haven't come onto it yet. For when you do...


But on topic, try a LEGO comic. Use your writing interests, and build along to it. It keeps you busy, makes many in the community eager to read/see the comics, and keeps you interested in your own project. I would've done this, but my dark age came from not having enough pieces to be able to make non-rainbow creations. You said your's is the lack of creativity, and this should be a good fix.

I did a couple comics before... I say, by jove, you may have just solved my problem! :D Thanks a lot, I'll start working on it. Maybe turn my Swashbuckle story into a comic... That could work.

Great idea TSol!

IMO: Lego Builds and Customs are feed by two things:
1. I like to create items that reflect some of my favorite things, which I have a list that is always adapting.
2. Being a major creative sort, I've transferred that creativity into my Lego customs and builds (which would coincide with TSol's suggestion), so my creations take more effort and have grown in their reward/satisfaction in making, which makes it more fun to do ...

Don't know if that helps or not. You can create your story characters, their settings (which can aid you in thinking through what you write and how it could play out).
History: Movies: Books: Sci-Fi: Adventures (places you'd like to go) ...

Thanks, MC! You've made me even more determined. Now that I think about it, Piknik has resizable speech and thought bubbles, along with text. That should make it quite easy.

Sweet, I've found that Lego is an extension of my ideas and the things I'm working on. Lol, I'm even toying with the idea of making customs of my daught's book characters ... just to see the look on her face. It would be priceless, lol.
(I offered to draw them in lego form and she infatically told me NO!, lol)

Lol, indeed, especially at my age!
It's hilarious how many people really give me the "what's wrong with you" look when they learn about my hobby, lol. Most ladies my age are knitting and sewing things for their grandchildren ... me, I'm dreaming of sweet builds to give them to play with!!
