Thread: pre-event nightmares?

    Default pre-event nightmares?

    Ok, maybe it\'s just me and my damaged mind... but does anyone else have dreams about painting in the lead-up to events and competitions?

    The last few GD\'s I\'ve had recurring dreams in the weeks leading up to the event where I suddenly realise on the day of the event that I haven\'t finished any of my entries, or an entry I thought was finished is suddenly just greenstuff again?

    I spoke to a fellow painter in a GD store the other day and he admitted he\'d had similar dreams, though in his he finished his entry the day of the event and suddenly realised he\'d painted a mini up as spiderman and so he couldn\'t enter it in GD :-)

    I think his wins for wierdness, but I wondered if anyone else had suffered from pre-comp nightmares like this as well?


    Just interested.

    Can\'t say I have, but that might have to do with not sleeping much as I sit up painting instead to finish the entries. lol

    Trust me, you are SO not the only one. I imagine the more competitive you are the more likely it is.

    to leave it at home or smash it would mean that i would actually have to finish an entry!!

    I remember that ... IMHO i would have taken Gold the year before but hey ho... I also remember everyone else being devastated while you were kind of .. Oh well shit happens....

    whenever I\'m working on any large project and a deadline is approacing I have those strange dreams .. I guess it\'s only natural when something takes up your every waking moment that it als takes your sleep...

    I\'m hoping not to have those dreams. But my anxiety usually kicks in before any deadline.
    I\'ve always had deadline nightmares since I was at school. Nowadays they are work related.
    I haven\'t had a painting one yet but as I tend to drift off thinking about colour combinations I don\'t think it\'s far away.
    Hopefully I\'m getting more relaxed, or I just know my painting isn\'t worth getting riled up about.

    I really hope nothing happens on the day..you\'ve got me worrying now!

    I\'ve had the \"crumble in your hands\" one sometimes. I\'ve also had persistent fears of getting in a car wreck with my models in the car.... funny where my priorities are. lol

    Sounds like a quick pint (or two) before bedtime may be in order. Or at least lay off the sodas the night before :D
