So, here's mine: I get clever ideas of interesting things to build, faster than I can build them. And I keep writing songs faster than I can record them.
The implication is that I'm this genius, modern-day Leonardo DaVinci -- both mechanical and artistic (so is Guitar Cousin, BTW).
Many days while commuting to work on public transport, I design various things (in my notebook) I want to build out of wood. It often takes me a few days to work out the details of the design -- but usually less than a week.
But, I only get two afternoons during the weekend of "shop time". So I end up falling behind.
Last week, for example, I got an idea for a wooden tool tote (an open-topped toolbox). So I started to build it over the weekend. But then this week I came up with an idea for a wooden, stringed folk instrument. So now I want to build that as well.
Similarly, I come up with a new song idea about once a month. Usually I knock out the lyrics in a day, and have a pretty good sense of the arrangement and instrumentation as well. So, all I need to do is record it.
But at the moment I'm more in the mood to build things out of wood than to record songs. Which is fine. But now I have a lovely backlog of songs that I really need to just sit down and record.
The solution, of course, is to win the multi-million-dollar lottery, drop back to 40% time at work, and stay home doing interesting, creatively productive things the other three days.
I'll see what I can do about that. :)
