What happens after an MD release?
The time leading up to a new MD release gets tense and makes me really focused. So focused that I miss things around me, but not a thing in the work in front of me. But what’s still there when I look back?
When each step is knocked out it’s like a different pressure valve being released in the mind. The biggest weight relieved comes from the shoulders and that’s how you know you’ve reached the end. You can see around you again.
It’s time to pick up stacked emails, move forward the other projects, and write about the battle behind the scenes. The front-of-the-house stuff, they say.
But that time is limited. Maybe its a day, a couple of weeks, sometimes even a few months (hello summer 2020☀️) but that next idea will blow through the gates and MD will have born the next big thing.
