Discussion on: How to Finish a Side Project

Love this post, Kayla! I try to scope out my side projects and what they'll entail before diving in (which can feel difficult, especially when we want to get started the moment we think of the project idea!)

Your first tip is so important and probably so underrated! If you're too busy, don't try to jump right in to starting a new project -- it'll just stress you out if 1) you work on it while exhausted or 2) you beat yourself up about not really dedicating any time to it.

I'm running a cohort next month for creative coding women to get to work on a side project idea they have! Feel free to check it out >>

Thank you! And exactly! Side projects shouldn't be stressful or make you feel guilty!!
