Editor's Note Oct 5, 2014

I made a commitment to publish two editor's notes each week. One video and one blog post. I think I can keep that up, but I'm also writing for the M3 blog once a week and between that and editing the videos and other social media posts, I sometimes get behind. I think the habit is one that will serve me well, boosting my creativity and output. Our hangout was good this week and I enjoined the topics we discussed. I feel that we're hitting a stride. It takes some experience to accurately judge if what you're doing works, and I can say that I believe that it is. I'll be recording my thoughts just a day after the hangout is over so it's still fresh on my mind. I think it will also help me in deciding which segments to edit into the bear essentials videos.

Editor's Note Oct 2, 2014

It’s been a while since I’ve written for my personal blog. Often I’m just so stressed that I don’t feel like writing. It seems that when I do write I feel a lot better about myself and my life. So I had to figure out how to break my pattern. My cure for writer’s block is to get busy writing. I mean I had to write a lot of work I was never going to show anyone in my personal journal. You can’t wait till you feel like writing or until you have a creative idea, sometimes you just have to force it, to make your fringes move on the keyboard until your brain complies. There’s an old saying that fits. If you want to get something done give it to a busy person to do. I got busy writing in my journal each day and now I’m back on the grind.
