Yes! I have that same "affliction." Or I begin projects and they don't quite come up to the picture I had in my head and I just stop working on them instead of pushing through to finish. If you can a cure for this - let me know--LOL
This could open you up to so many possibilities. Have you checked out the hardware stores lately? They have books and magazines with all kinds of projects and they have classes that are either free or for a nominal fee.
No. I have not. And if I go to a hardware store, I walk out with a book on gardening or patios. Yet I don't have a home!
Also try the library. They frequently have photography books and DVD's worth checking out. If noting else, they're free for the trying out and you get to return them when you're done. So you're not tied to anything just to get started.
One of the way I learned more about descriptive writing was to analyze a book I really love. I would take it apart (figuratively) and when I read a passage that showed me a room or a landscape, I studied it to see what it was that drew me in etc.
I'm in the same boat as you on this one. I need to find some beginner informational books and DVDs as well as some classes that would help me out.
