I’ve spent approximately eight hours working on a 45-second video you probably won’t see.

The lost time and wasted effort saddens me.

The trouble is, I tend toward perfectionism unless I’m consciously warding it off, so when I set out to make a video talking about my debut novel Justice, it turned into this big scripted ordeal that didn’t appeal to the few people I showed it to.
When I’d hoped they say, “Yeah, this is fine,” instead they came back with suggestions that would mean redoing it from the start.

More work to look less scripted.

But, come to think of it, nothing with Jesus is a waste. I learned through the process, and I’m sharing about that over on Seriously Write today!

Ever spend hours perfecting something you may never use? Thankfully nothing with Jesus is a waste! Hope for when we want to get everything right and fail. @emilyrconrad
