comment Pulling an idea through in spite of the need to correct details
Star Trek writers used [TECH] in first drafts when it was obvious that the technobabble was not the point of the scene. It's just to indicate "technical solution to be inserted later."

comment Is it better to have a deadline?
This is really a Your Mileage May Vary question. Some people absolutely cannot get motivated without a deadline, and find that it focuses them immensely. Others find deadlines stressful. Douglas Adams famously joked that he loved the sound deadlines made as they whooshed by (that is, he couldn't make himself meet one). Just as some writers are plotters and some are discovery, some people need a deadline and some do fine without one. There's no one correct answer, I'm afraid.

comment Real, serious and based on personal experience idea, but no previous practice. Where to begin?
@petajamaja Essays have nothing to do with fiction. Entirely different skill set. You can be minimalist and dense, and there's nothing wrong with that. If it really bothers you, hire an editor to look over your work for that specifically.

@petajamaja Do both. Write small stories to get over your fear of the blank page. Write your important story and edit it a lot.

If it's on the Internet, then you can just link to whatever you feel is too much to present with the original.

comment Critique of short essay
I disagree; "alone in the dark" evokes loneliness and sadness in those of us not steeped in computer games. In the Ray Charles biopic Ray, Jamie Foxx is complaining to another character about his blindness: "When I walk out that door, I walk out alone the dark." He was referring to his entire life. en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Ray_%28film%29
