No, really, I typically sit and leave it for a couple of days. Once I've given
my system a chance to detoxify, I start a pot of really strong french roast, and
plow through the project until it's finished and I can get it the hell away from
me. Often, just the opportunity to refocus gives me what I need to shift my
approach and improve the work.
