I have many many half started, half finished blog posts – possibly close to 10. I think it’s because I have a lot of ideas about what I’d like to write about, start, then never finish. Posts always seem so clear in my head, but when I get down to writing them it takes a lot longer than I anticipate to construct them into a complete and coherent structure.
But perhaps I’m trying too hard. The original intent of this blog was a space for reflection, which means semi-coherent-stream-of-consciousness-thoughts-in-progress are acceptable. So, inspired by Julian Stodd’s post on the reason for reflection I’m abandoning / ‘procrastinating’ my intended post for something fun and lighthearted: a DS106 daily create (tdc611):
Create an interesting high contrast black and white image of an easily overlooked object.
Looking at the example from the original brief, I know mine isn’t *quite* right; it’s not high contrast enough – those cars should be less grey and more black or white. Probably because they weren’t sufficiently monotone in the original pic. It’s possibly something I could fix with more editing but I didn’t really want to spend all night on it (tdcs are supposed to be 15 minute challenges after all…!). Regardless, it’s good to get back into daily creates after not having looked at one for a few weeks. I’ll be trying to get back to at least 1 or 2 a week. The challenge is making space and time for everything I’d like to do, without total chaos descending. That’s still a work in progress.
