Played a ice breaker game where we're supposed to mention something interesting about ourselves. I mentioned winning NaNoWriMo 6 times, and I guess everyone thought it was like a 'real' contest where someone actual judged what you read, I guess? I felt a little silly explaining it was just writing 50k words as a personal challenge. :/
My Nano entry for the 4-for-4 contest is up!
Go check it out (and vote, and link me to yours, etc).

Whenever I sit down and just think about stuff I feel irrationally guilty that I'm not actively working. THIS IS BAD!!!
It's very important to remember that in creative work of any kind (this includes things like programming tbh), the more time you spend getting your thoughts in order, the smoother your execution will be. Even just taking a walk and letting your brain air out a little can be invaluable. 100% efficiency does not mean 100% active work.
Quick tip for traditional media artists:
Used Toffifee packages (or many other chocolate packages for that matter!) are perfect for use as cheap disposable paint/ink/etc. palettes. :)
Incase you need some extra places to mix colours!
Regarding Flattr - it does sound like a nice complementary system, but as a user I'm a little wary of using browser trackers to auto-generate flattrs. I prefer to know a little more directly of where money is going without having to manually change how I flattered someone. :/
As a creator type, it does seem like an easy way to get a little bit of change, but not enough to really replace anything like patreon.
I draw Random Doodles, a webcomic: http://randomdoodles.com
I like art, video games, table top games (RPGs and otherwise), and programming.
