sorry to just pipe up here like this, but I completely feel what you say. I'm a total arse for having big ideas and no final results. Like full on
brain wave intricately awesome ideas, then a couple of days later it dies out, I feel like it's stupid and give it up.
even worse and more time consuming than that, I'm constantly switching between what I want to do. one week i'll be sewing like crazy, making a few
pieces, starting a few ideas, really loving it. Then it wears off, and i'm uninspired, so i lay low for a few days then I start making graphics, and
i'm bang at it hours upon hours, same # different medium. Til it happens again. And the cycle continues.
I'm also a #er for giving in on an idea just for 'thinking' it won't work. I'll make something, people'll love it but then i'll be like 'na,
it's not practical / ethical / enjoyable / '
I think the respondees (is that even a word?) here have some great points and explanations and people like us should take heed. I definitely will be
doing. At least until i get bored :p
Something i'd like to add from my own experience is that I have a bad habit of making too many demands of myself at any one time. I won't just plan
to make something and see where the river flows, i'll plan on doing the whole taking over the world shebbang and feeling overloaded makes me
exhausted and i get down about the whole thing and close the book. So be sure not to make too many demands of yourself. I'm sure the world's got
enough of those as it is.
Big up for spending 9 months on your project
that's some serious achieving in my world. Best of luck with your website (if it's a procrastinators

your intel brain, bring out the heart - he can be a fierce leader.
