I wonder if anyone else has this problem.
This week, I finally wrapped my head around Tumble, the basic parser engine I've been working my way up to since about January or so. It really shouldn't have taken so long, but I had a lot to learn, a lot of false starts, a change of job, and a generally busy life.
Tumble is one part of a project that I've been working on for the past year. The other parts are named Crest, Dragon, Candy, and French Press-- they're all part of a decoupled CMS written in NodeJS mostly meant for fiction writers. Candy is a meta-system on top of Tumble for theme management. French Press is a back-end. Crest is an intake engine and Content-Editable aware piece for fixing stories after they're done. Dragon is a template package for Tumble that spits out the stories in EPUB and LaTeX formats for alternative distribution channels.
I should work on any one of those. Probably French Press next, as it would help get the back-end toolkit rolling, and it must be working before Crest or any of the other toolkits make sense. But I don't wanna. I'm not even particularly unhappy with Tumble; it's a good piece of software, all told, and it has alternative output mechanisms that make it suitable to Candy or Dragon, but it's... I'm just glad it's done, and it'll be a few days before I want to get back into that sort of thing.
Do you ever have post-project blues?
