After all that talk yesterday of avoiding Star Wars stuff, what did I do on Friday? I watched more Star Wars stuff. It started innocently enough, with me trying to get inspiration by watching the two and a half hour documentary Empire of Dreams, which was included in the original trilogy boxed set that came out last year. But then, things got out of hand. I’d heard that there was a special DVD included with the Revenge of the Sith soundtrack, and I hadn’t seen that yet, so I went to the mall to get it.
And then, we watched that. It was cool, though a bit jumbled in places, and only at the end of it did I realize the sheer silliness of all this.
It was a totally lazy day. I’ve been looking forward to today for a couple of weeks, knowing that it would be the beginning of a three-day weekend during which I would make the last push on my thesis. But I couldn’t find the right frame of mind to get working on it. I thought a lot about what I wanted to write, but I couldn’t get myself to that point where I feel comfortable pounding away at the keyboard.
Stef makes a good point about all of this. I think I’m being lazy, but really, I’m just going through my process. There are long periods where I don’t do anything creative at all, where I’m just stewing over ideas, and then it all comes flooding out at once. That’s how I work. So, right now, I’m just waiting. My thoughts are collecting. Soon, it’ll happen.
I just wonder if it’ll happen soon enough. I’ve only got this weekend and that’s it. So, we’ll see.
