I imagine things, and sit there, or just wait. Mine seems content to come and go, but evade every attempt to remove it while it's there.

I just start writing anyway. My usual block stems from a lack of motivation, but once I get the ball rolling, I just puke the words on the screen. So for me, it's the starting that's hard.

Yes, this. I usually can't write zit during a WB, and then I begin, the block is broken, and the words rush though.

RP Interest App Form

High Concept: Buy! Sell! Sell! Buy! Players are part of a huge share-trading corporation, either being involved in selling stuff to people, or part of the non-economical staff, like security or IT.
Genre/s: Character. Don't know what else.
Detailed Description: Welcome to Whitecreek! After sending in your vacancy (i.e; your app), you find yourself hired! by one of the world's biggest businesses around, Whitecreek! We sell people shares for an agreed amount of money, delivering them a month after purchase. The trick is - we only sell shares we think that will become worth less money, so that by the time we have to deliver them to the client, they're worth a lot less, and we still get the agreed amount of money for them - massive profit!

In this RP, all players are a part of Whitecreek, the corporation mentioned above. Everyone works in the office located at the Beursplein, Amsterdam - though you can come from anywhere in the world, Whitecreek pays your flight costs! Wether you are a stockbroker, tradesmen, IT specialist, or security officer, you're part of a massive business - as you can see on your pay check!
Basically, lots of greedy people trying to make as much money as possible, while doing drugs and general silly stuff.

I have an idea for an RP. It's a comedy boot camp RP, where a group of recruits are training to join the marines, but the sarge is dellusional and believes it's World War 2 and believes the USA is still at war with Japan.

There's one problem though. I have no idea how to RP the sarge(whose name is Sarge) in a PG-13 manner.

He runs his own boot camp. Don't question my logic.

Now that you mention it, a comedy RP based around a group of jihadists who are really awful at being jihadists would be hilarious.

Hey, is this a good intro? I have this RP and I'm wondering if this is good.

If not, could you please give me pointers so my next one is ok?

Topic:
The Year is 1972. At the Height of the Cold War, Soviet and NATO tensions escalate to an all time high. The Cuban Missile Crisis resolved in F-102s firing on Soviet Missile carriers, turning the tensions higher. Now, The Berlin Wall falls, but this time, under the power of assaulting T-64s. The Soviet Union invades Western Europe. With the United States still fighting in Vietnam, the world may collapse under the Soviet Union.

It's a very short intro.

Also, in my humble opinion, it's likely to turn into a "Murica kills commie bastards!"-type of RP.

Why would the Soviets attack through the Wall? I mean, it's a dramatic picture, but surely they could just encircle Berlin.
