Does your idea solve a problem? Are people willing to pay you to solve that problem for them?

Three months of paperwork is great, but if the answer to the above two questions is no, said paperwork is sorta useless.

I completely agree with you on the fact that months of paper don't really mean anything but it helps me pitch to a developer to let him or her know that I have thought through this idea and it really helped me lay down my thoughts.

I believe my idea does solve a problem but the only true way to test my assumption is to build out something simple to see if people need something like this. I would be truly willing to pay for something that I want to build.
