The last hour I have been playing around on the interwebs, checking my work email, checking my work servers, double checking that all users are functioning, checking the logs, and downloading podcasts. I am good at productive procrastination. I have been perfecting it for years. I am still procrastinating polishing my stories for next week. That has been happening at 2am, when I can't sleep but too tired to actually write down what is in my brain. Some day soon I need to actually write down what I remember and see if it makes more sense than what I already have.
Anyway, now I need to motivate myself to get back to the video. It isn't that I don't want to do it now. It is more I don't want to deal with frustration any more. I am making myself because I need to practice pushing myself to do things when I don't feel like it - especially when it comes to my creative shit. I will never get anything accomplished if I don't make myself finish. One of the purposes of this blog is to help me motivate myself to complete projects. Seeing it written, and knowing people are reading and expecting a follow up or a finished product, has been helping me to continue when I am ready to say "fuck it" and move on to the next shiney project. I am actually proud of myself for not completely dumping this project for the guitar-to-uke project this weekend. It would have been so easy. Then I might have had 2 more unfinished projects to add to the heap.
OK, now that I have talked myself through the slump, I should start working on it again before I lose my motivation and start searching the interwebs for animal photobombs. I can't resist those silly animal photobombs.
