Re: What I'm working on

Gues I'm in the massive minority. I decide what project I'm going to do,
research it a couple months, assemble all the necessary materials, drawings,
and photos, and then work on that project and nothing else until it's done.

Not that I wouldn't like to work on more than one at once, but it's just that
I've found that every single project has some phases that are just pure
drudgery. It's incredibly easy to stop at that point, and go on to something
else more fun- but then it's incredibly hard to go back when you know you're
facing that same drudgery. At least for me, working on one and only one at
a time is the only way I can finish anything.

Of course, it might be different if I didn't have this perverse need to
scratchbuild everything, as perfect as I can do it, making every project
a multi-hundred hour job...
