Vidding mojo, that is, insofar as I had any to begin with. I'm actually feeling inspired to vid again, which is very welcome after the creative blank spot of the last year.

Of course, I can't actually get started yet, since I haven't yet installed the new HDDs sitting on my bookcase, nor upgraded my OS, and there's seriously no point even getting started until that's done.

And I'm not sure what to tackle first. The vid of my heart is a Farscape vid I've been wanting to do for ages, but it's hugely intimidating - it'll require shitloads of source, and I'm reaaaally bad at keeping all the source straight in my head if I'm vidding from anything longer than a movie or a few TV episodes. Plus it's kind of a serious vid, and has A Thesis and I don't want to get that wrong. Urf.

...also, I'm, in general, fairly underconfident about vidding, because ... hmm, how to put it: I'm not practised at narrative creativity, in the way that vids require (other than "whee look at the shiny" vids, which are awesome). I'm not a very practised storyteller, and I'm not experienced at building the narrative (of a vid, in this case) to say anything coherent.

I wish there were "Vidding For Dummies" resources; everything I've seen focuses on the technical help, which is awesome and appreciated, but not where my big obstacle is.

(So, yeah, if anyone has any tips or suggestions, they would be super duper welcome.)

Also, is #vidding still active? I retreated during my I Am Crap At Everything phase last year, and last time I checked it out a couple of months ago, pre-Yuletide, it was empty.


The above might sound like I'm whining. I'm actually not; I'm hugely happy to have the creative urge back again, it's a rare thing with me. I'm just not sure what to do with it now I have it back. :)
