Though I saw it all around
Never thought I could be affected
Thought that we'd be the last to go
It is so strange the way things turn

Deliberate practice and writers. (Grokked from Mer Haskell)

You know how when writers are asked about their creative process (typically, "Where do you get your ideas") they either sputter or make something up that sounds pithy or sarcastic? Yeah, designers do that too.

What would Reagan do? That's right, he would (and did) increase taxes. But don't tell the conservatives that, unless you like telling kids that Santa Claus doesn't exist. (Grokked from Jay Lake)

Tweet of my heart
