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 …

Angela Noel’s Work in Progress – A WiPW Guest Post

One of my favourite topics to write about is the messages we weave into our work, be them intentional or not.

At The End: A Monday Motivations

I cowered, hunched against the cold, metal corridors of the ships interior; my naked flesh shivering and frost-bitten by the lifeless surroundings.

In 5 Years Time: A Thursday Thought

Where will you be in 5 Years time? Can you visualise it? These are the questions being asked today. I'm doing something a bit different this Thursday, by answering the questions posed by Shelley’s Blog in her post January in Review! Q1. Where do you see yourself in 5 years? What small steps can you …
