Actually, I know exactly what happened: Performance Anxiety. I can be going right along and creating new things with ease and the moment somebody says, "I want you to do this" I shut down. I'm not blaming anybody but myself. It is an internal malfunction that I am well aware of. This is why I will probably never have a job that involves creative energy. Any expectations what-so-ever just break me.
But I must press on.
These are just quick half-baked ideas. I'm letting them come, scribbling them down and putting them away. Later I will go back and see which have merit, if any.
