Screwtape at

I've been feeling down on myself recently because I've had all manner of programming stuff I wanted to achieve, but rarely got much done on any given day, and wasn't really enjoying it as much as I used to back in the day.

Today I was plugging away, and to my surprise I was really getting into it - figuring out how to make things happen, trying stuff and learning. Then I said to myself "ah, but before I dive in and make changes, I should write a bunch of tests to ensure I don't cause regressions" and within twenty minutes of starting that, all my motivation had drained away again.

I mean, I'm not going to *stop* writing tests, but maybe I need to figure out a way to interleave test-writing and fun stuff?

Unit testing sounds like a real PITA xD
