I've found these exercises are good for the "finishing the work" side of creating. The built-in accountability has been tremendously helpful in establishing my creative habit. Wanting to have something to show for myself each day, my eyes are open for what project I'm taking on next. I see half-finished projects and oodles of scrappy supplies waiting to be dusted off and MADE.
There will probably be days where I share a work-in-progress, for the sake of embracing the process and allowing others to see something unfinished. That'll be a special kind of challenge.
