The problem is, it's focus in the wrong direction. Like. I will sit and work on that fanfic all firkin DAY if you let me. Or if I let me. And chasing it are a few more fic ideas that are guaranteed to break hearts. And one to warm them.
Because new fandoms are like this for me, I can try to restrain myself. But guaranteed, there's going to be an outpouring of stuff in the near future. It's my flaw. I take up new projects until I can't keep up with any of them.
And then I have a meltdown.
I've done good at pacing myself for two years. That's a record.
I should have known my self-sabotage would come around for a visit.
Any hints as to what to do about this noise will be appreciated. And "just focus on one thing" does NOT cut it. The one thing I will focus on will be the wrong thing. Guaranteed.
