I sat down to write another post about how to be a happy game developer and got hit with blank page syndrome. What should I write aboutfirst? I'm moving into Act III of working on Energy Hook, so I could write about what a drag it can be to actually finish a game and how to get past that. But wait - maybe I could start from the beginning, the things that bug when we first get started, and do things in chronological order. Or maybe I should stay at a high-level view for a bit, talk about automatic negative thoughts and other general sources of unhappiness and what to do about that. Or...

Nevermind all that. I should talk about whatever it is that's bothering most of the devs out there.So I thought I'd ask you:

Are you a happy game developer?

Why not?
