Your Game's Evolution
Often times you'll see your project turning into something you never imagined before. You start with a base idea and start developing it. Every now and again you'll add a little touch of polish. You'll remove an unnecessary feature. You'll revamp an existing feature. Over time you'll see the game changing into something even better than you expected.
I get warm fuzzies every time I notice this happening. I find myself rewriting game design documents with a racing heart as I rush to get new ideas out of my head and see how it makes the game feel more complete and awesome. Don't be afraid to change your idea once it's set. As you're making it, experience may bring new insights to what could make it even better.
