Creating high-quality audio content is no easy feat! Even with a BFA in Film & Video Production, Adobe Premiere Pro (although when recording in person, I still use Audacity - still learning Audition), good quality podcast mics, and relatively good knowledge of how to sound mix, it still takes time and dedication to produce a podcast. Hell, I used to teach this stuff, but doing it? That's a whole other skill set. What project have you been tackling that's got you wrapped up and knee-deep?
Check out my newest episode featuring another fantastic woman in film!

Someone once pointed out my obsession over details (and proceeded to dare me to eat a 1 lb. bag of Skittles - go ahead, ask me why that's funny), and as I've gotten older, I've come to a few choice conclusions:
1) Who the fuck cares - do you, boo! *Today's cursing is brought to you by the delightfully brazen Lorien McKenna who hosted a fantastic webinar on Screenwriting on Stage32 (the link should be available tomorrow for replay).
2) Some areas of our lives benefit from, nay require, extreme attention to detail - point in case? Audio Mixing. And I'm STILL learning how to make it better! Embrace it when it serves you, relinquish it when it tortures you.
3) If someone is trying to tell you that who you are is "too much", I hope you have a voice (or multiple voices) of compassion that can remind you of who you are and why that's okay. If you need to sit there and push and push until your baby hatches, then I repeat: DO YOU BOO!
Disclaimer: If you're still "in progress" and aren't sure if your obsessive tendencies are finding a healthy outlet or are being exacerbated by these projects, then I highly suggest seeking the counsel of a psychotherapist. Not because there is anything wrong with you, but rather to help you unpack and strengthen that "voice of compassion" you will assuredly need in a creative but productive endeavor.
