And it’s done. I’ve completely renovated my garden.

As expected, I hit the 90% Wall. Most projects seem to have a point near the end where I just don’t want to put any more time into them. I don’t know why, but it’s frequent, and it seems to affect most creative projects. It’s a major reason why books don’t get finished, comics don’t get published, and in general creative people don’t finish their projects.

But this one’s done. There’s certainly more stuff I want to do in my garden, but I’ve done what I initially set out to do.

What it really takes, for me, is eliminating other distractions and focusing on one project only, until it’s done. I may work on other projects, but this one gets priority, and I work on it every day until it’s done.

And then, it’s done.
