Can you overthink an idea?

Do you ever just mull your ideas over so much that you end up disillusioned? Can you end up overthinking an idea? I don't mean in terms of making something overly complex, though that's also an issue, and I don't mean in terms of talking yourself out of something. I mean in terms of thinking …

Fragglerockin’s Mosaic in Progress! – A WiPW Guest Post

One thing I'm learning through Work in Progress Wednesday (WiPW), is that nothing is ever straight-forward; we all get side tracked, life always gets in the way.

The Furnace: A 3LT

  The flames licked up through the sockets, dancing between teeth and flashing behind nostrils. The rest had already burnt away; turned to ash in the intense furnace heat. Finally, he was gone, she thought, but still... she didn't trust the flames. ***** This one took a fair few iterations... but here we are. Thanks to Sonya and …
