As I mentioned yesterday, a couple friends of mine approached me about working with them on a shared project.
In true Christopher Blanchard form, I started taking the whole project way to seriously. I wondered about cost, about weather such a project would be viable, how would an eBook for it work, what word count should I be aiming for, blah, blah, blah.
Yeah, it was pretty ridiculous.
The good news is that I recognized that I was acting pretty stupid in this regard, and decided to just let go of all that and concentrate on the thing that drew me to the project in the first place.
Because, the truth is, this is a fun project. It’s good friends that I’ve known for a long time. It’s a fun setting that one of theme created and the other two of us are adding to. And I’ve got a great idea for a story and character that I am working on developing.
So, the lesson I am taking away from this is that I should try to keep all my projects fun. Even the ones with deadlines, or that I am getting paid for. Because if it’s not fun, it’s not worth doing anymore.
