Yeah, pretty much. I am very impatient, and I may have undiagnosed ADHD, so take my story with the appropriate grain of salt.

That said, I get caught up in an idea, and I chase it around from text to text — like a monkey swinging from vine to vine. Only, I never really leave the vines behind. I kind of gather them together to build a really strong rope, and swing from that one to the next tree, making sure to tie it on branch for later use.

I go back to the same books all of the time whenever I get tickled by an idea that I know is in one of them.
