Something a little different this time. Thanks to some of my opponents, I’ve been witness to an all-you-can-eat buffet of pretty amazing words when playing Zynga’s “Words with Friends”. You know the kind of words I’m talking about, right? Things like “beton”, “modi” and “feria”. I’ve lost many a game to such skilled minds.
Highs and lows come and go, but for creative people who doubt their ability, stewing in a creative low can quickly become a prison. Since November, I’ve basically stopped all work and been on holiday in my mind. Honestly, I can sit in a quiet room and not one interesting thought will show itself. It’s just blank. That can’t be good.
I’m not worried yet. Three months in to the new year, with a December deadline quickly approaching, I still do not have any animation to show. That’s okay. I planned it this way.
Pre-production has been long and arduous, and hopefully well worth the time. However, I feel like I should have had more accomplished by today. So what can I do about it?
