I really had fun this week. I felt like my daily creates were pretty spot on (especially Peep Impact), which makes me feel good. I was super excited that “Why so Deerious?” got featured, which gave me a lot of confidence to go out and swing for the fences this week.
The Vonnegut piece made me consider the arc’s in this week’s reading/viewing, which is something I hadn’t been taking into account previously. It’s not that I’m not familiar with them, it’s just that they become so repetitive that sometimes I try to ignore them to help me enjoy the story. It’s a rare thing to see a truly original piece of work in my opinion, so for me I have to forget that I know how things will end so I can enjoy the process of getting there.
This week was pretty busy for me work-wise, so I’ve had to do a fair bit of this class’s work as more of a gut reaction than a well thought piece, but I don’t see this as a necessarily bad thing. I think it’s good to work on those quick response chops, and I think it’s helpful to get critiqued on that level too. It helps refine the process on a level that rarely gets looked at by others. Normally, I get it polished up before I put it out for scrutiny, so I’m at a loss for feed back at that raw stage. I did get a bit sloppy in a few spots, so there is definitely a trade-off.
I hope your computer feels better (Daily Create)
