>> I'm envious. Why don't I ever dream of my conlangs? :((((
Recently, g0miileg0 has been in my dreams a lot. In fact, part of the
recent evolution of g0miileg0 has been in my daydreams and some in my
nightdreams (and nightmares).
But not much is vivid - some is tho', but despite this lack of "realism"
in these dreams inspire me ever onward...
Also my voracious reading habits and TV/video/movie watching and music
listening habits also contribute to my conlanging in small ways. I keep tons
of Post-It pads of paper close at hand at all times for those _satori_-like
flashes of inspiration.
::eyes chaotic mound of Post-Its:: Egadz! It seems the Tribbles have been
incarnated as g0miileg0 notes...
(oh, and I literally use 2 shoeboxes and 3x5 cards to gradually build up
my lexicon sloth-like... I can't escape making a naturalistic conlang using
these "primitive", masochistic methods nor the haphazard, semi-random aspects
of chaoslang ;)
