Little baby mini rant. :3
I just kind of miss editing. I feel like I have no passion, and no inspiration anymore, and I kind of hate it. I remember when I used to be so active here, and I'd talk to you guys like, every day. And I really miss that, but I feel like I can't get it back.
I feel like my inspiration and my love of editing was stolen from me somehow, even though I'm the one who let it slip away. I miss being able to sit down and create something without it hurting me to work on something. For so long, everything I edited was nothing but vents, and I just can't live that way anymore. But it's like I've totally forgotten how to edit a fandom, just plain and simple; because I love it--not because I feel like I might die without the release editing provides.
I don't know. I'm frustrated, I guess. It's not a question you can ask--"how do I get my passion back?" That's just not how it works. But I miss it. All I really want is to be able to edit again.
And I feel like I've lost it forever.

Well, Thalia,

A good friend of mine always helped me out of my inspirational blocks.

Do something small. Whether its random, with meaning or even a storyline.

Do things like mep parts or snippets of videos to get the feeling back.

It usually helps me out.

When editors host a MEP of their and they have this line here;
''Not first come, first served.''

On what basis are they picking editors for the parts?
Who's to say the ones ''better'' than the other? We're all in this together and ues I understand theres only so many parts in a single project, but seriously? I don't understand the reasoning as to why they even pick people over others in the first place.
Is it a friendship thing?
Is it that they think the other editor would ''ruin'' any flow and purpose this MEP was to have? They couldn't just explain to them what they want and help them work their way to they would not ruin any flow?

Maybe I'm hard-headed but I just want to know what the reasons editors who host a MEP with no ''first come, first served'' basis are.

OH MY GOD. That TOTALLY INFURIATES ME TOO!

I mean, I dont get it either, when people put not first come first serve it suggests to me that ones who arent given a part arent good enough for their oh so high standards. When I host an MEP I explain EVERYTHING in the description so that everyone gets it right, whether I choose them or not.

Its different if its a one off, like semi studio like MEP where HUNDREDS try out for a part and people are chosen at the end but it just pisses me off when some people get a part straight away and others are ignored.

Indeed. I would probably accept it more if they gave reasonable explaination as to why they chose who they did and explained politely to the other editors who didn't get picked what to aim for when in their projects.
