Can you force yourself to code? I have a hard time doing that. I kind of have to feel like it.

    Exactly - you have to trick yourself into enjoying it

    My OCD can force me very good to code

    If it’s bad enough ill force myself to be curious and that begins the rabbit hole journey

    Work, yeah, but personal stuff, it's got to be something I'm interested in, enjoying

    For me, it's very difficult to force myself. The brain just doesn't produce anything

    Sometimes I just feel like checking out new stuff, and use bug sample projects for it. Not really forced, just as a hobby.

    ^^ what he said. I find smth interesting and fun to code, not necessarily project-related. Then the coding mood kicks in and chain reaction starts - chewing through code challenges like popcorns. And then gently switch to the project code.

    It might take from a few hours to a few days for me.

    I can easily get lost in anything, which is great when I can get myself to look at the code but terrible when I get a reddit notification.

    Yes but the code need refactoring as soon as I feel like coding again.
