Definition of OCCAM’S RAZOR

My creative frustration over the past couple of years often circled back to – ‘UGH! I don’t have a space that’s mine!’ I worked on the kitchen table which meant anytime I fixed the kids snack or ate a meal I had to clean up whatever I was working on. Sometimes when I got an idea or had the desire to work on something I chose not to because the idea of getting everything out, keeping it contained so I could put it away quickly got in the way of working and made it easy to give up.
