I hope your week is off to a good start! Below are some links to some external content that you might find informative or inspiring.
- Creativity: There’s a great discussion about creativity around halfway through this Board Game Design Lab podcast with guest Hankerin Ferinale about creativity; specifically, that even the smallest barrier can often be a deterrent to delving into creative work. It’s an odd thing, but it really resonated with me. I’ve learned that if I want to work on certain projects, I need to keep the files open so that when some design time opens up (or even if I have an idea) I can access them immediately.
- Pledge Managers: Mike at Rock Manor Games recently made an excellent, detailed post about several pledge managers they’ve used. It especially opened my eyes to the Gamefound service, which I knew little about.
- Taxes: My accountant–Justin Marty at Anders CPA, who is well-versed in accounting for Kickstarter creators–recently appeared on Gabe Barrett’s podcast.
- Game Designers: There is a new documentary about game designers called, appropriately, The Game Designers. I think I’m in it very briefly, but I haven’t watched it and don’t remember filming anything for it.
What’s something recent you read/heard/watched that inspired or informed you as a creator?
