Repeating yourself

Don’t be afraid to repeat yourself on occasion. Returning to previous themes is a very valid way of expanding upon them and developing the ideas within them.

Multiple blog posts on the same topic will catch your new readers, and remind your long term ones of the previous posts. Multiple games focussed in the same style or theme allow you to build on previous ideas.

Returning to old work lets you see the flaws in it you couldn’t see when you first did it, the detatchment produced by time gives you a more independent view of your work, and allows you to improve it.

Don’t rely on repeating the same themes, mechanics and ideas, but always be aware that returning to the past can help you build something new.
