Okay, so its really just ONE of my problems, but its the one most applicable to my current activities. And what is that problem? Well... the fact that I'm a 'completionist'. This means that however simple an idea may start out, once I begin working on it, it usually becomes more and more complex. I keep adding to it, even if I promised myself I would keep it limited to certain criteria. At first, this may seem to almost be a good thing. But in practice, it is what has kept me from actually COMPLETING a lot of projects that I have set out upon.
In this case, I am talking about my current Star Wars rules system revamp. I like jumping from sub-project to sub-project within it to keep myself from getting bored. Lately, I have been focused on the droid sourcebook. Weeks ago, I commented upon how I was almost done with it. Well, I have been working on it steadily since then and I am proud to announce that I am... still ALMOST finished with it. Feh.
In my defense, the book has now grown to 60+ pages and about 114 different droid profiles. But, man, I would really like to finish at least ONE section of this book soon. If only to give myself a feeling of accomplishment. In reading back over what I have done, I find myself very proud of it, but it is still incomplete. I really need to just rein myself in here and get it done, then.. if I think of more to add, I can do that latter.
So, consider this post both an update and a... pep-talk to myself. Talk to you later.
