I don't know if it's my mood, or if I've re-watched it too many times, but my WIP is suddenly completely failing to bring out feels in me. And I mean it to be a feels vid! I think I need to finish filling out that timeline and then give it a couple days off. But not too many days! Deadlines and whatnot.
From a NYT piece about procrastination:
But if procrastination is so clearly a society-wide, public condition, why is it always framed as an individual, personal deficiency? Why do we assume our own temperaments and habits are at fault — and feel bad about them — rather than question our culture’s canonization of productivity?Despite over a decade of subscribing to anti-capitalist politics, it's easy for me to feel guilt and dread over the ebb and flow of my own productivity -- especially at work, but also when it comes to housework, running, or even vidding. On that note, I'm having trouble feeling excited about my WIP. It's coming along, but I'm also in a moment of resurging Buffy feels and I kinda want to work on one of my vid ideas for her. So I might just give it a rest for a while. Maybe send it to a beta.
