- or that aspect of me, really, which doesn’t give up. I drive myself mental with it. Truly. Some times that works for me, sometimes not.
So, the next chapter was due out last Saturday (in my mind). So, I worked on it – love it! - you know, the weekend! feel good! Got most of it done Saturday and physically tore myself from the computer for a jog and sauna.
Alas, iMovie kept crashing that night (the next chapter is a reading by me; hope y’all will like it).
.So, I think there’s always tomorrow. Need sleep. Been a big week. Must not develop insomnia over the next chapter, crazy driven though I am.
Ditto MEGA FAILS the next day : crash, re-edit x 1 billion, until the end of the day – again I tear myself away to tend to the physical being, which needs exercise as much as the mental self.
At least there’s Monday after work all day, yoga, dinner, dishes, need sleep.
Long story short last night was Tuesday and after my day’s work all my house work, I was DETERMINED TO GET IT DONE IN SPITE OF iMOVIE, REGARDLESS OF THE EVER-FAILING iMOVIE. Fancy trying to get something creative done ‘in spite of’ iMovie!!
Consequence: I have had 1 hour & 56 minutes sleep all night. I now must go to work. And I cannot EXPORT the movie/reading I have created & re-edited & re-edited & re-edited through the night, after each of iMovie’s MADDENING crashes. I am talking MADDENING crashes.
Subbers, thanks for being there. Simple as that. Having an audience DOES inspire me to keep going with this novel. And I want you to know I’m trying, oh, I’m trying to deliver.
This novel will have closure this year, this whole part in my life will have closure this year. This tree has had all its leaves fall to the ground – my words, my tears – and this year it’s going to sprout new life, on closure of this tell.
However, despite ALL my efforts from Saturday to now, 8.39 am Wednesday 20th February, I still have note been able to PUBLISH what I’ve made for you.
This has also taken my time from visiting you – which is more torture via iMovie. I ENJOY visiting you, swinging by, seeing wassup. I enjoy that.
So this is what you call an update. It’s made – the next chapter reading (and ooh some good footage ) – I’ve just got to get it to you. Sighhhhhh.
To the recently subscribed: I’m very touched you have interest. Thank you. Who ever would have known while I lived this, I would find any kind of poetry in it – ever – and then find this forum by which to reach people… hopefully including people once like me; because I highly recommend if you are anything like I was, you take a first step forward away from that victim. Life can actually be a source of joy (this is a revelation to me; sorry if it’s common knowledge out there).
Hey! Just thought of a great advertisement for iMovie:
“Unable to prepare project for publishing…
The project could not be prepared for publishing because an error occurred. (-108)”
