Work is being done again. I have a new idea that's outlined and everything. So far, my initial progress has lead me to the conclusion that I could make this part last a lot longer if I put more work into planning things. My actual plan consisted of about four sentences before I started writing code. I should have books filled with my planning documents. I should know every piece of the project, every potential problem area before I even begin to write code. Writing code is not meant to be something you just race into without giving it much thought. That's how you end up with products that lack features, how you run into dead-ends that you can't figure out, and a lot of other unforeseen problems.
