    I get carried away by details when doing creative things. I like world-building so I think about how things like magic or alternative technology would work. Then I think about what sort of trade goes on in the world. Then I think about what sort of seafaring ships they use or if they use ships at all. Then I end up making an entire map. Then I think about what kind of paper and ink the map would be made of and what sort of education the map-maker has and what the accepted scientific view of the world is. Then I think about the various philosophies of the people.... So on.

    I get excited by new ideas but also overwhelmed. Often times I quit a project because my reach exceeds my grasp. Then I shame myself for being too dumb to not be able to magically sort everything out all at once in my head. I never learned a proper way to manage it so have a slew of unfinished writings and drawings with good ideas that eventually unravel into incoherent messes.

    I'm getting better at it, though, I think. The management, that is. I try to let myself brainstorm however I need when an idea strikes and then prune when I go back. I am just so used to giving up that it's not yet habitual for me. I hope to change that!

    Probably steer clear of jobs that require a lot of attention to detail like accounting, history professor, or transcriptionists. I can also get stressed speaking to people who can talk 100 miles of detail a minute on restaurants/traveling/people they know, but I don't know. I am also careful to add in details as I speak as to make sense to others, as I recognize the importance of details in communication.

    I'm doing a payroll course online. Just realising how bad at details I am. And spreadsheets are a total headwreck.

    I recently accidentally fed my dog wet cat food thinking it was her wet dog food. Hubby had to point out it was wet cat food before it processed for me
