German and French speakers love those complicated sentences - English one love them short.

My favorite English-speaking writers are definitely Jack Kerouac and James Ellroy - always short sentenses. It smells like haïkus or IKKEA furniture: it's simple and sophisticated.

It's a really nice exercice to write in a foreign sentence because it push you to think different and to deal with your limits. And frankly, creativity love limits! :)

So right you are.
It's very important to leave ones comfort zone from time to time to gather new perspectives and thoughts - and using a different language is definitely an approbriate way of doing so.

This is exactly what Tim Ferris book is all about: leaving your confort zone (damn! I should put an affiliate link to Amazon, I need so much the money :)

I really like a quote within this book: try to reach the impossible goals. It gives you much more motivation than reasonable goals, there's less competition and nobody cares if you don't make it. :)

Ah ah ah! While I'm on this forum, a friend of mine (hey Justin!) told me: "I'm sure you are in your underwear drinking beers!" - which is very true :)

Hehe. I assume the underwear is red. :)

Btw. I still want to see proof of your statement: "can touch his nose with his tongue when he's drunk."
Maybe at the party in Cologne? ;)

For now I wish you all the best for the project! I keep my fingers crossed that the Kickstarter campaign is going to be successful.
Thank you very much for hanging around here and answering our questions. Merci beaucoup! :)

Indeed! I'm promoting Lancelot no matter what - even when I'm sitting alone in my appartement. You never know - if the Illuminati hacks my webcam, at least this underwear could convince them to back Lancelot!

* Touch his nose with his tongue,
* Juggling flaming torches on an elephant,
* Making a speech about the influence of HP. Lovecraft and Louis-Ferdinand Celine's writings on Michel Houellebecq pessimistic worldview

My LinkedIn profile is true: I can make all these things when I'm drunk in Germany :)

It was my pleasure. Thanks so much to everybody here, I had an amazing time! Thanks to AT for invinting me - and thanks to all Lancelot's backers and fans - without you, I cannot make Lancelot a reality. So, thank you! thank you! thank you! :)
