WORK | Projects in Stages
Something clicked just over a month ago.
I can and should have multiple different projects on the go in various stages of development at all times.
This has been true for me at different times in my work, but never intentional.
It hit me while sitting and listening to women in the storytelling industry.
It is normal and in fact, part of the creative industry to be multitasking with various projects.
You see, that is not in my nature. I am a multi-tasker in my day sure, but not in how I live my overall life. If I want to do anything, I am guns blazing from start to finish. I want to start at the beginning and get to the end, as fast as I possibly can.
That is not how it works in the theatre, film and television industry.
It takes Months. Seasons. YEARS even.
This realization is blowing my mind and still a challenge to comprehend.
At this point, all I can truly say, is that I am learning how to be more comfortable and capable with balancing this reality. Having four projects this season seems daunting and overwhelming and yet, it also seems absolutely possible and motivating.
As my awareness and understanding of how this works develops for me I will definitely be documenting and sharing my process and learning.
With various projects I go....
