Fanning embers

  1. I’m not good at making myself do this, but what usually helps is if I sit down with a project for several days in a row, and if I can’t think of anything to write then I’ll just ponder and take notes. If I do this, I’ll find myself thinking about it more and more, and eventually the spark returns.

    I’ve done the sitting and staring thing. Maybe I’ll try reading the story structure plan I had and see if that does it. Thanks!

  2. I have one such project. And I’m so sad about it, I haven’t been able to look at it again so far. sigh.

    It’s been about seven weeks or so since I’ve been able to look at this one, and I had such high hopes for it. 😦

  3. Once I derail, I’m done. Stick a fork in me. I’m pretty good about completing craft projects, but if something isn’t the right colour or the pattern isn’t working, you may as well throw it in the woodstove.

    I’ve never been good at accepting less than perfection from myself either. When I built furniture, that got expensive.

    I started painting my kitchen more than a year ago. I got one wall finished and started painting the cabinets. I tried one colour I didn’t like then tried another colour I liked less. The rest of my kitchen is still an eyesore because the drive is gone.

    I hear ya.
