"Finish It", huh. When did I start my big [redacted] sci-fi [redacted, look away] thing again? Maybe I should get back to that.

Finishing stuff eh? What a novel idea!

So inhumane superweapons, mass murder, and canon nonsense is okay, but speedos are too much for some people.

Not sure about the tip on cutting a favorite section as a cure to writer's block, but what do I know, he's the published writer, not me... Interesting link though, thanks for sharing

Most, if not all of these, apply to any form of writing, really.

From film and games, all the way up to PhD's...

Good stuff.

Frankly Guys Joss could take lessons from many of our foundry Greats (you know who you are)

He really only wrote one concept he just did it several times (progressively worse)

And there is only so much you can do with a cheerleader fighting bad guys with kick boxing
be she called Kendra , Buffy , Faith or River

Grrrrr Arrghh
