Total surprise. Some people said we had a shot, but I thought one of the judges had it out for TCAST, which is fine, but I suppose my impression of him was more negative than he actually was. (Thank you, secretly nice guy!)
Congratulations to my amazing team and all of the hardwork they put into this!

I know this happened like, a week ago, but I've been in a shitty mood so that kind of distracted me.

Yeah. Sorry this post is random and short. Need to stop blogging and get writing!!

Still battling it out with Darlings Lost... I have such a love/hate relationship with that game... and I think everyone who plays it will too. ^-^;; Yeah. MUST MAKE IT AWESOME. *runs away*

My sister recently wandered through craigslist looking for people starting bands. She found that overwhelmingly, the people posting were singers looking for people to play instruments.

The first day you pick up a guitar, you know you can't play Slash's solos in "Sweet Child O' Mine." But it's not hard to sing along with Axl's voice. "Woaaaaaaaaohoh, sweet child o' mine!" And we all know how pristine Axl's voice is. It's not hard to out sing him on anything. Check it for reference.

My point is, it's easy to convince yourself that you're a good singer even though you know nothing about singing. A lot of people can't hear the difference between Axl's million dollar howl and their own voice.

There's a similar problem with writing. Basic grammar was beaten into your head by like, fifth grade. At any point afterwards any person can have an idea for a cool story, boot up a computer and write something down, assuring themselves that they are "writing properly."

But what they don't know is they are piece of shit writer.

I'm also a piece of shit writer, by the way.
