Confession: I have a ridiculous number of WIPs. I'm beginning to think I may never actually finish a vid ever again. I know how this came about. It came about because for a couple of months I was a) deciding what to do about my job, b) enacting that plan, c) going on holiday, d) returning and beginning new phase of life, complete with life-change-y actions a plenty. So, all of this was not very conducive to consistent creative focus on any one vid. But my vidding bug didn't leave me so I just found myself starting up projects when I could hoping to get back to them.
Top of my list of WIPs is my charity vid, which I am totally excited about, and absolutely will complete. But it's a Terminator vid and I started it before the end of Season 2. It needs to be reworked to reflect and encompass the finale, and I need to do some serious planning.
But meanwhile there are three vids that I'd started before that, and one or two I'd fiddled with since. Not to mention the new vid bunnies that really really want attention. Waaah!
When I sit down to focus on one, I get distracted and flit to another. I've lost the continuous thread that usually pulls me through an individual vid. For instance, I go back to my earliest WIP and I totally remember what the plan was, what to put where, and I can go about doing that, but I don't feel that 'zing' that comes with seeing your latest idea come to life. So is it worth it? Should I ditch my old WIPs? What if they are really close to being done (even if there is no actual audience for them)? So many decisions. Sigh. I don't know what to do.
I wish I could get them all done so I could feel guilt-free about starting new vids. Perhaps I should declare May my own personal 'WIP amnesty' month, in which case prepare to be spammed with half-baked Bop vids. ;)
ETA: Any advice?
