I remember my first article in my very first project. There was no pressure to finish the article until I was done with the exercise. I didn’t care about the deadline, I just wanted to write it as much as I could. By the end of the article, I completely forgot to put that other project away. I was just excited to see my article turn into a thing that I felt excited about. I didn’t want it to be the last that I saw of that piece. I still remember how excited I was when I got done. I didn’t need a reason, just take your inspiration and go for it.
