Why is it ...

... so much easier to review other people's work than bite the bullet and make your own?

Since you ask ... I have a theory on this, namely that a review has an implicit time span - when you start, you have a subconscious idea that you won't be doing it "forever".

Whereas making one's own work is a continuous, never-ending process!

Suggestion: set a stopping time, eg "I'll work on this for two hours".

It's probably a good idea to set a starting time too!

Yesterday you said tomorrow - doesn't that sum up perfectly the 'over committed' world we live in! There is always something that we can do instead of making art but none is quite so fulfilling.
