No, you haven't missed anything.
But I have.
I missed my November 1 self-imposed deadline for finishing "Who Does He Think He Is?"
Sometimes things are just simply out of your hands.
For each step I've completed, three more have surfaced. Aspects I thought would be fairly quick and easy have turned out to be time-consuming and difficult.
I continue to battle the lighting issue nearly daily. Each time I figure out a different way to "correct" the problem I then have to go back to the other scenes and try it there. I KNOW it will NEVER be perfect, but I'm really trying to get it as close as I can so it is not distracting.
Also, it's not like I have eight hours a day to devote to this.
The silver lining (I'm choosing to call it that) has been that the script I co-wrote for our church's Christmas program has been shelved until next year. Bummer for me emotionally, but again, it's due to circumstances beyond my control. I was also part of the cast, so the cancellation means no rehearsals for me. That has freed up quite a bit of time I wasn't planning on having.
My new goal is to have it finished before Thanksgiving. I don't know that a "release date" at this time of year is a wise idea, but we'll see. If I don't finish by then I'll have to shelve it all until after the first of the year.
In all of this I continue to pray The Prayer That Never Fails, "God's Will Be Done." Talk about circumstances beyond my control...God's will is ALWAYS beyond my control.
The only thing I can control about it is my attitude. Right now I'm on a much needed "forced vacation" and it's doing me a world of good. I have been ridiculously stressed and aggravated about this missed deadline and about the fact that it will continue to cut into my family's time and preparation for the holidays.
BELIEVE ME, you WILL know when "Who Does He Think He Is?" is available to watch, online or on DVD.
Thanks for being patient with me. :)
