If you’re anything like me, you’ve got these beautiful pictures in your head. You can see what you want to create in your mind’s eye. It’s perfect, it’s wonderful, and you know just how you want it to look.
You have this vision of what you want to create and you want nothing more than to share it with the world. “If only there was a way to download this from my mind and just print it out,” you reflect.
Of course, there isn’t a way. You’ll have to create it yourself. You’ll have to translate it. Learning to translate and to transpose is about as awkward as doing it with multiple languages at first.
You decide to put pen to paper. You do your best to begin composing the masterpiece—only, what comes out doesn’t match. It’s not that picture in your mind.
