Actually, for me...make it ten.
I have no problem prioritizing when it comes to paid jobs or for specific events (i.e. deadlines). But open-ended creative ideas have a habit of piling up to the point that I get buried under them. Some have given the advice of, "just pick one!" and I daresay I've attempted that. But as mentioned earlier, while in the middle of researching for one project, a random photo or drawing will pop and off my brain goes to create another photoshoot/costume/unfinished art project.
I'd be lying if there aren't some days I wish I could shut my creative brain off! The projects are of so many different varieties - costumes, illustrations, short films, photoshoots, blog posts, etc. - and in my typical fashion, NONE of them easy! (Now I do keep all of these ideas logged in specified places as not to lose any of the ideas. I have extensive libraries on my computer and Photobucket of reference folders full of photographs, Word documents, doodles, etc)
But I'm beginning to fear that I've pigeonholed myself into the Idea phase. I come up with a plethora of concepts and reference to support them, but never seem to get very far past that phase due to yet another idea (and another and another and another) surfacing. I have completed a few ideas from concept to finished product, but they are fewer than I'd care to admit. I haven't been able to find a solid solution to this dilemma. The closest I've been able to come up with is tying my concepts to specific events (such as conventions, holidays, movie premieres, etc.). Having a deadline definitely helps, though strangely a self-assigned deadline like, "I'm going to finish this costume by ___ (fill in the blank with arbitrary date)" doesn't seem to work at all. My will circumnavigates my brain in its realisation that it's not a hard-set deadline. Oh how my creative proverbial cup overfloweth!
And on that note, I'm going to go make myself some tea.
