If you want to see “behind the scenes,” it often starts with brainstorming. It really helps my thought process to sketch things out on paper, and to be able to see a laid out plan. Plus, you get the added chore of trying to decipher my handwriting.
I usually start brainstorming stuff out weeks, if not months in advance, and I keep records of it for references later. There are sometimes, like today, that I just get the itch, grab whatever is in arm’s length, and start jotting potential ideas. Obviously, some of these will take a while to get set up, and others will be dropped entirely. It’s okay though, since I usually get enough in spin-off ideas to make up for it. So, keep this in mind, and you can see what shows up on the site.
