Good tip, Jonah. I have several takeaways from your article. The biggest is this quote on brainstorming. I've wasted a lot of time following a trail down a rabbit hole before I was ready.
I always end up with 2 solutions. 1. I either abandoned the project. 2. I have to rewrite and rethink the entire article.
Brainstorming is a great way to define my ideas without wasting a lot of time.
