After class on Thursday, I immediately went home and finished my production plan. Putting the schedule together was a little hard, as I know things will change. Timelines will shift, certain components might change, but I am happy I was at least forced to put down a rough guide. Some aspects of my production plan I feel confident about, such as the ability to find the research I need, and also the writing of my own personal experience with mental health issues. Additionally, I have experience in making videos and podcasts.
What I am less confident about isn’t related to a certain component, but rather putting it all together. I am not sure how I am going to structure my whole project. Although, as we discussed, that should hold me back from beginning to write and research about it, mentally it is still stressful for me. As someone who likes to be very organized and planned out, I have never started a paper that I have literally no idea where it would end. Sure, sometimes when I get into things they do end differently thant I thought, but I at least went into it with some idea of how I thought it would look like. I feel much more in the dark about this project. I need to get passed this anxiety about knowing everything to be able to get into researching. My attitude about it all is very hesitant, and I am working on conceptualizing it all differently, so that I am not intimidated or discouraged about it. This is what I will be working with this week. With more confidence and a clear head, I will be able to better delve into my topic and starting the research.
