How Do You Choose Which Projects to Pursue?

Maybe in some of my earlier days, I had some problems with asking questions on the Internet. Of course, even on my post lamenting this phenomenon, I got replies! It really is a case where, if you give people an opportunity and a place to reply, they likely will. So, I have one bouncing around in my head.

How do you choose which projects to pursue?

I think I’m going to go with a poll. However, the responses are based on some of my thoughts, so you may very well have your own! Please feel free to leave your thoughts in the comments. We’ve been having some fun and success with polls on Comparative Geeksnot success like Patrick Sponaugle has with polls, but success.

Over time, I notice that my writing projects start to bleed together. There are definitely themes and ideas I want to write about – but as they merge, it gets harder to choose! It makes me really want to get SOMETHING written and out there, so that I know I have succeeded at getting some ideas out.

I wrote about my priorities the other day, and got some feedback – but would certainly still love more! I’m turning 30 tomorrow, so it seems a good time to be introspective. Well, more than usual. And to ask questions like, where should I be spending my time? What’s working and what isn’t? What has the most impact? So this is all just part of that exercise. Thanks for the input, readers!

The Sunday Re-Blog – Shameless Self-Promotion: I was asked to write a Game of Thrones Recap

Today I wanted to join in celebrating with a blogging friend! Patrick Sponaugle over at “I Can’t Possibly be Wrong All The Time” – a blog largely devoted to Game of Thrones thoughts – got asked to write a season 4 review for Film School Rejects! Sounds like he even got paid for the experience! Definitely worth following his link to the post he wrote!

I Can't Possibly Be Wrong All the Time

I’ve had this blog for a just under a year, and most of it has been Game of Thrones-related. Not episode recaps or reviews, mostly opinions, or musings, or justifying some the characters’ bad decisions. I guess.

Writing about the show is enjoyable, and helps pass the time in-between seasons. (Only 9 more months until Season 5!) And the television show provides tons of things to write and opine about.

To my joy (and thanks to great support from some of my favorite podcasts who were very generous towards me) my blog received attention during Season Four, and I was asked by the publisher over at the Film School Rejects site if I’d be willing to write a recap for the most recent season for them.

Well, yes! I would indeed be willing. And so I did.
