I figured I’d jot down some of my thought process on what I might review for this blog since my big projects keep falling apart. The She-Ra project might not have found a show I really liked, but it was an easy enough project to do, so I’m sort of looking for something that vein.

Sigh. I think it’s time to actually say this.

I thought reviewing Agents of SHIELD was a sure bet that I would have the drive to keep the reviews coming. When I started, I was very much in the necessary fandom headspace for this show; I’d been writing (at least trying to write) a lot of fic and had plenty of opinions on the show I wanted to express. As you can tell from the reviews I did do, I have a lot to say on the subject.

But it’s not working out. It seems now that I’d been in AoS headspace for too long when I finally started reviewing and my brain was ready to pick up a new focus. I don’t know that I’ve moved on from the fandom exactly, it’s just been long enough since we had new material that I needed to feed the engine something new. The reviews were already proving a bit harder to get through that I thought, and a new focus has basically sidelined my drive to do this.

I’m not talking about my brief She-Ra project being a distraction in case you were wondering. I might even try and keep some reviewing going by doing some other cartoon series that only requires that limited of focus. But for right now it looks like I will be tabling the AoS reviews, call it another Mr. Selfridge style failure.

I’m disappointed in myself, I was about to hit more interesting episodes. But let me know if you have any suggestions for things to do for a bit until either something else grabs me or one of my previous interests comes back.

So this brings us to the end of this little side project. The AoS reviews are still slow going, so I'm probably looking for another easier side project, if anyone has a recommendation.

Since it seems the Agents of SHIELD reviews are a project that I’m taking very seriously and therefore slowly, I wanted to have something else a bit less involved that I could do shorter reactions to. I would like to pick up the pace on the AoS reviews, but my thoughts seem to take a while to get in any kind of order, so something lighter is the order of the day for this side project.

Taking a few months off from these reviews wasn’t exactly the intention but part of it was to be expected. I still try and do NaNo in November, and December is always pretty busy. I have found time to try and start a couple ideas for new review projects, but you’re not seeing them because it would risk another Mr. Selfridge situation where I didn’t really commit to the project enough to get very far with it.

But what I keep coming back to is wanting to do Agents of SHIELD; the problem is that I keep wanting to write (and never finish) fanfic instead of review it. I think I may be temporarily out of that loop and ready to try reviewing it again. But I do have some opening thoughts I need to try and get through before starting.
