As I once told a frat guy - never antagonize the art students, we carry all sorts of nasty surprises around, garrotes, x-acto knives, razors...and we have a perfectly legitimate reason for being constantly armed and dangerous. *laugh*
I know exactly what you're talking about with regard to the freak outs while you're working. I get that a lot - for some reason it's scarier when I realize things are going well than it is when they're going badly. If you've got the time or inclination, there's a book that I think should be a Bible to all creative types called "Art and Fear" by David Bayles and Ted Orland. I tend to read it about every four days.

Cry Oook and let loose the throwers of clay!

Yeah, I have a peculiar fondness for my pointy things and my garrote, and throwing tends to bring me to an almost non-verbal state.

Yeah, you get exactly what I'm talking about. I have the book, actually. At some point not too long ago, it was recommended to me after a similar freak-out. Shortly thereafter, I also got pointed to Coelho's The Alchemist. Great stuff.

That's just because herbalists make great engineers (when properly motivated.)
