There are days I want to quit

I'm irritated with myself, mostly. Project 3 has staggered to a halt, mostly because I'm beset by the unshakeable notion that I'm doing it wrong. And even worse, I can't say just WHAT is wrong with it. The best I can do is say that the "flavor" is wrong. And being that I'm not a great cook (my family eats many things out of boxes), I don't know what spice I need to add to make it behave the way I want.

My attempt at a solution is to read some things that may be in a similar style as what I'm trying to write. I'm hoping they'll jump start my brain, show me what's been done before, let me sample someone else's flavor.

That sounded vaguely dirty.

And I just spent an hour looking for a decent lolcatz picture. Someone else is welcome to do better.

I found this stuff a friend of mine makes called Death Powder works amazingly as a spice. is called Death use with caution. Oh, you didn't mean food....

Thank goodness the hubbie unit makes good roast beast and things once in a blue moon so you don't always live out of the box.

But back to your project, I think it's a good idea taking a beat and just seeing what other things are out there. Perhaps what someone else has done can cause your brain to start whirring in different directions, and that might be the direction you need.
