I get feelings about projects I'm working on. It's inevitable. I live with them for eight hours a day. I come to know them and where they're going. Sometimes, the feeling is one of genuine excitement, because I know it has the potential to be special. Sometimes, it's a 'this is straightforward enough' kind of feeling.
And sometimes, it's a 'I don't know where this is going' feeling. I've been having that one for the last week or two with something that's potentially quite big. It's that feeling that there's no shape to it yet, no direction. That I don't have enough information. There's always a bit of a trick with non-fiction, which is that you can't do accurate research until you know where you're going, and you don't know where you're going until you've started the research.
It's also... I have small worries about things around the work. Part of me says 'just get on with it'. More of me is worried that if I do, those will just grow.
