Like Sand through the Hourglass

by , under personal

No, I’m not talking about Days of Our Lives. But I am talking about time.

First, this week flew by. I’ve had a lot of my to-do list, and unfortunately blogging fell to the wayside a bit. I’m not complaining about it being the weekend already, but it feels as though we skipped a day.

But the hourglass thing. You know how in movies or TV shows, villains would pull out the giant sandglass to tell the captive hero/heroine how much longer they had to live? Or in Jafar’s case, he’d put the heroine inside the hourglass.

I’m not going to lie. I was looking for a picture of Jasmine in the hourglass, but this one made me laugh enough that I couldn’t resist using it.

Right. I was going on a tangent, wasn’t I? This week has felt a bit like those moments in movies. I’ve been watching the sand run through the glass, knowing that when it ran out- things weren’t going to be the same. I’m referring to the Kickstarter for Imagination Situation, which unfortunately didn’t succeed. While watching it tick down felt horrible- we were already working on our plan B. I won’t lie, it was a tough reality check.

However, I know that we’re going to come through this. Roby (the creator/writer/director) and I believe too much in the show to let it die.

I want to thank everyone for their patience while I plugged away at the IS. Now that this is over, I’m going to work even harder to make sure that I have a regular blogging schedule both here and over at Imagination Situation. One of the other things I’ve realized is that as much as I need to schedule time for my novels, I need to schedule time for this. It’s all a big part of who I am.

It also showed me that I can tackle something big, new and scary. I might fail, but I’m still there. Still hungry, still wanting to learn and grow. That was huge for me.

Turning this around a bit- have you had any hourglass moments? Or a Phoenix from the ashes type moment? Or a Sith Lord coming back from craziness to get some robot legs moment? Sorry about the last one. I was rewatching Darth Maul’s return on The Clone Wars.

Anyways. Tell me about you.

    I’m 100% with you on the time slipping away this week.  The 9-5 job kept me away from working on things too and now the weekend is here and the madness shows no sign of stopping!  Sorry that the Kickstarter for IS didn’t go as planned.  It’s a great project from what I’ve seen and wish nothing but the best for you guys!  

    Oh – and here’s a link to a Jasmine photo of her in the hourglass.

    I did find a couple pictures, but man.  The face she’s making.  I couldn’t resist posting it.

    I’m glad I’m not the only one with a week that was on fast forward.  I’m hoping this weekend lets me catch my breath… but I doubt that’s going to happen.

    Thanks for the well-wishes.  We’ve got a lot of plans on how to make it work.  Definitely finding other things to share while we raise funds for the full episodes.
