I hate that most of my blog posts are myself promising to update weekly after failing to do so, but here I go again! I got a new work schedule recently that’s overall pretty good but it’s taken some getting used to. I have two jobs resulting in a bit of a split shift, and have had some busy weekends recently. This has kept me from writing and taking photos. Now that I’m in the swing of things though I’m not going to let myself make any more excuses. 2017 was the year I proved to myself that I could be consistently productive. Patrick and I have posted a podcast every week since February, and although I didn’t stick to my initial plan for creative projects, I did finish 1.5 documentaries. I’m hoping to finish the second one ASAP. Procrastination is something I still struggle with but this podcast has helped me overcome some of that in a big way. I want to continue improving in 2018. I’ve proven I can be consistent in completing projects, so now I want to bring that consistency into other creative endeavours. Weekly blog posts, finishing scripts, and a few other projects.
A big part of what helped in 2017 was laying out plans for what I hoped to accomplish. Those plans changed but really helped. I’m hoping to get my project play for 2018 finished very soon. It’s going to include another year of Nostalgia 91, at least two scripts, and weekly posts on this blog. Over the past few months I’ve taken some time to re-evaluate myself creatively which is something I’ll post about next week, but all in all it means I’m going to be concentrating a bit less on film in 2018. I’m gonna work on writing, photography, and the podcast. I still have an idea for a short film series, but it’s going to relate to still photography in a big way. That’ll get fleshed out more in next weeks post though. For now, this will just be another life update posted far too late. Thanks for dropping by to read if you did!
