Inspiration Vs. Determination

 Instead of doing something productive

I wanted to take a moment to talk about inspiration.  I'm not just talking the inspiration to create, but also the determination in takes to sit down and complete a project.  I'm the first to admit that I LOVE starting a project. But finishing? Not so much.

It helps when I have a deadline, Christmas for example. I decide what projects I'm going to do, I buy yarn, and I get started. But sometimes, I just don't feel like doing it. Even if I've just been watching Netflix all day.  I know I should get some knitting in, or at the very least something creative.  I'll even pull out my knitting and put it next to me, only to ignore it for the rest of the night.

Do you guys struggle with this? How do you find the inspiration/determination to get through it and get back to work?

  1. I finish projects at work when the patient is asleep. It's the only quiet thing that will keep me awake through the night, but now I have a ton of hats and nothing to do with them. Seriously, a ton of hats.
