Interesting that you say that. I'm slightly digressing
here, but I was looking at a creative writing forum recently where a student said they couldn't think what or who to write about.
A fairly well-known writer (trying to be blunt and calling a spade a spade, etc) responded to this by saying 'there's not an awful lot of point wanting to be a writer if you can't think of anything to write about.' (I'm paraphrasing here, I think the sense was: ..if you haven't got anything you *want* to write about)
I suppose you don't always know till you get there, how much you'll enjoy a project. But if I have a need to work on (or interest in) something it certainly helps motivation
That really was less than £0.02 from me. Excellent meditation subject, though. ++
