When I'm ready to get going...

It's like in the great stories, Mr. Frodo. The ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger they were. And sometimes you didn't want to know the end. Because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad had happened? But in the end, it’s only a passing thing, this shadow. Even darkness must pass. A new day will come. And when the sun shines it will shine out the clearer. Those were the stories that stayed with you.
— Samwise Gamgee (J.R.R.Tolkien, the Return of the King)

Nothing fancy needed here... just reminders of how a thorough world background sets the stage for a fantastic story. My players will provide the story as long as I provide the world!

When I'm in a procrastinating mood...

It's the job that's never started as takes longest to finish.
— Samwise Gamgee, quoting his Old Gaffer (J.R.R. Tolkien, the Fellowship of the Ring)

The images are in my head... but nobody else can enjoy them until I get them out of my head and put them into words.
