What’s hard for me is finding the time to get any idea about anything to a stage of completion before most of it (and some of its best parts) is forgotten.
I hear you on that. I have so many little scraps of paper with notes and (very bad) sketches I’ve done at work so I don’t forget something. So many bits and pieces with scenes or dialogue or characters, or whatever. When I make something here, a lot of times I’ll have a rough idea for a backstory that develops as I come up with the character, then I fill in the blanks when I write it out.
