I started up a "GDNet Boston" GD Gathering group. Hopefully I'll be able to meet some other Boston-area folks who are also looking for some motivation.
As for a project, I'm currently in the process of fleshing out a simple idea to get me going. Well, not breakout, or tetris simple, but not UT2k4 complex either. It's a remake of the old "Subspace" game I loved playing back in the 14.4kbps days. If you never played it, google for "Subspace" or "Continuum", which is the working title of the community upkeep version.
I'm currently working on my GUI library. I'm taking the extra steps to make a library instead of just hard-coding the items because I'm notoriously horrible at design, and art. I'd rather provide the tools to someone more talented in that area, and let them run with more creative ideas. Well, the "real world" calls.
