    Makes perfect sense. I find that I can accomplish much more creatively or otherwise focusing on one project at a time. Too many projects leads to little success with any of them.

    Yes, thanks, I find that clear constraints set the conditions for the freedom of creation. Good examples include the size and shape of a page to determine composition in a drawing or painting and even something as common as a general plan to begin a woodworking project. A page of sheet music can provide this for a musician or, for the musical improviser, the existing structure of the music piece can provide a base from which to explore.
