    How many unfinished projects do you guys have?
    I have had problems with finding the projects what I want to finish.
    Because of my lazyness, many projects are named like "asdf2" or "newdnb1234" lol.
    Right now I have 276 unfinished projects in 1 folder.What a mess.

    Create a new folder every few months so its easier to find stuff.

    Colour code as well maybe for mood or genre. I'm on a mac and I drag the most recent folder to the side of the finder so that its easily accessible

    For every one track I make I probably scrap from 3 up to 5 projects. My logic folder is a mess in other words...

    Unfinished projects are ok, it means you're getting as many ideas out of your head as possible. Plus sometimes you can open an unfinished project for some inspiration or use elements from it in a different track.
