Speaking for myself, I am wary of what I call too much boast-and-toast talk. You know what I mean...those conversations that begin with "That's interesting, but what I am working on right now is..." I think it can take the wind out of your sails. It's like putting your project up for a vote depending on the reciprocity of your listener. A lack of enthusiasm can derail you. Too much enthusiasm can prematurely give you the reward for work well done. Remember that the part of you that creates needs to be shrewd about using its energy constructively. Too many artists talk about the work they are "going" to do.
