Taking a project off “hold”

Filed under: Uncategorized — love2wryte @ 1:45 am

Today they were painting the unit doors in my building, which meant I had to leave my front door propped open (so the paint could dry) almost all day. It’s disconcerting to have your door open. It made it almost impossible for me to concentrate. Combine that lack of focus, with the fact that my dh asked when one of my WOH (works-on-hold as opposed to a WIP work-in-progress) would be finished, and I found myself opening a file I hadn’t looked at in months.

I read the entire thing (which roughly translates to the first half of the book) and I discovered something about it: it ROCKS.  Okay, maybe not all of it but at the very least 75, maybe even 85 percent of it is awesome. I tabled this project when I got too caught up in “everything” that was wrong with it. Now that I’ve got some distance from it, I can see EVERYTHING that is right with it.

I’m officially moving it from my WOH list to my WIP list.



  1. Cool! It’s great when a project gets your blood pumping.
