O my god it is so absurd how distracted I get. I am trying to start some work now before my working day starts. I am in two minds.
I am not sure of which to do first.. 1, get in touch with some creative writing groups to see if they want to have a brainstorm session around the story of the ‘Surgery Slave’ for the day or 2, start a graphic design group for collaborating around the ideas for the marketing campaign.
Obviously this indecisiveness has lead me to do neither of these things and instead to start to delete old playlists form my YouTube account. Jesus.
I am setting myself a task now. I have one hour.
I am going to start with the story telling as I think this part comes first as it can inspire further content with its ideas for the campaign.
1, Look up existing story writing groups
2, Get in touch with the best to see if they would like to collaborate on the idea.
Email – from my Mam asking to change meeting me tomorrow to Friday and go to this
Facebook notifications – Its Ste’s birthday, Someone is looking for a model on the photography models & photographers in London group for a birthday themed shoot and a memory from 2010 of Stix finding the FM 104 ash cloud song, about the time when I could not fly back to Dublin because of a volcanic irruption ( how ridiculous).
Thoughts – Rambling ones about staking out the Park for the event venue for days in advance, watching for the patterns of the park guards, sitting in a trench coat with a large newspaper or hiding in the bushes with binoculars.
So I have written the mail. I am already thinking of reasons why it is not right to send it.
I am over an hour of course! But I think having that time pressure to do it in helps you cut the crap and focus on the bits that are important.
I’ve had a look on Facebook and Meet up and am going to send it to some groups and see what happens.
