Can’t stop all the ideas

The questions he asks and poses give me so much inspiration and new ideas.
Great for people who want to go all out and do things realistically. He’s also very concise with the way he speaks.
I’ve also wanted to use many of the cliche tropes on purpose to flesh them out even more, (elves, unicorns, Pegasi, etc) and he did a great job describing how to do so while remaining unique.

I’m writing this review only listening to two of his sessions, so I can only imagine how much better it’ll get from here.
