The theme this month is Off the Shelf. The idea is to take a project that's been sitting on the shelf and start working on it. You could revive a half- finished project and get it closer to the finish line. This is a great opportunity to find an excuse to start working on something that you never got around to finishing and by doing so giving new life to a project. You can also take any project you've worked on in the past, and do something different from it. Let us know the story behind your original project and what motivated you to continue working on it.
This contest may appeal to you if you are the type of person that gets a lot of joy from starting new projects. When starting a project, there’s a lot of joy and excitement in taking a new idea and working to turn it into something real. The potential, in the beginning, is unlimited. With time, however, its natural for your initial enthusiasm fades. What was once a fun, new project turns into a chore. And before you know it, you find yourself moving on to something else, leaving your previous project abandoned in the graveyard of unfinished work. Or, maybe, you have a project that has languished on your to-do list for months, becoming something you’ll “get back to when you have time.” With this contest you have an opportunity to break this cycle of getting an idea, starting a project, and then never finishing it!
