Here it is; my video where I talk about the Authortube community and the risks of negativity, as well as my vision for my content and how I see my channel going forward. It might not be the that writing-related, but I do find it necessary. Sometimes, you need to take a step back and look at the bigger picture. Am I following my original plan/vision? If not, what are my reasons for leaving it? I found that those reasons weren’t really good enough, so it’s time to take a good look at how I can make my brand and content into something that is representing me as a creator.
Feel free to give it a watch and gasp at my real talk. Don’t forget to like & subscribe as that helps me out a lot. ❤
Here it is. A completely unscripted video – some might say an unscripted mess – but at the same time, it’s authentic. It’s nothing more or less than me (and Niles being his normal diva self, of course), being completely honest about the experience of finishing the second draft.
Am I proud of myself? Yes. Does it show? Probably.
I’ve talked about it before, but I find the mid-point of a story to be one of the most important parts of the book. That’s why I didn’t stop at merely blogging about it, I also made it the topic of this week’s Youtube video!
It’s always a valuable experience whenever you struggle with something. It forces you to think outside the box for a solution, and many times, you end up seeing things a little differently. The aim of this vlog is to share this experience in the hopes of connecting with other writers. Feel free to share any thoughts in the comments!
It was time to decide on whether or not to take the whole Youtube thing seriously, and well, the decision was yes. I ordered and have just received my new camera, which will hopefully help me make videos of better quality. It’s not a super flashy camera, as that is not within my budget, but it’s probably still better than my smartphone, which has awful limitations when it comes to recording video.
So – I hope to start using it today and film another writing vlog! I’m just waiting for the battery to charge. Seriously, I’d completely forgotten about that. I had the strange idea that I would just be able to unpack it and start using it right away. Silly me.
Here it is, my brand new Canon Powershot SX730 HS
As far as camera stuff goes, I found this one rather pretty, and naturally Oskar made fun of me for thinking that was an important part in deciding which camera to buy.
