Re: the time lapse explosion map. Given the graphics quality and 1980s video game sound effects, now I'm going to have an electronic voice in my head asking me "Shall we play a game?" a la the Matthew Broderick film "War Games".

The Terribleminds advice is pretty good, although I thought 'start writing' should have come first.

Anyone who "wants to be a writer" and does not write, every day, is just jerking off.
