As i talked about before, i'm working hard on keeping from applying perceived external pressures to my personal projects. Because i had early success with some of my experiments, i feel like i need to produce more "showable" or polished output. But really, i have to keep telling myself, this is just for me. It is fine to go slowly, to write more, to make smaller, or even no "gains" as it were. Because the end state isn't to have a polished or even working game, but the process of learning and playing around with ideas. Some of those will not be showable, or of interest to anyone but me. And that is fine. The need for external validation is a hard one to break.
