Time warp while boat building?
« on: November 04, 2009, 05:38:25 pm »

Is it just me or do you folks have the same problem.

When I'm in the zone and building my models, time just gets sucked into a void or something. O0

I'll start, and when I next look up, the cuppa I just made is stone cold and 6 hours have just gone! {-)

I'm seriously considering setting the alarm on my mobile cos I've been working till 3 am %)

I have the opposite problem :D

I get caught up with life, and before I know it a month has gone by and I have done nothing with the model. :((

It's "displacement activity" that's the killer for me - there's always something else you need to do, so even if you do get into the workshop you start feeling guilty...
