I am glad we are discussing the struggles we are having with our digital story because I am having a lot of them. At first, I really wanted to talk about my church and I still do. However, as I was going through it, I was having trouble finding pictures that would work because I felt that it would be repetitive and boring. I wanted something more fun. I also found I kept struggling with ideas of music and what pictures would look best where. I am pretty upset about this because I really wanted this to be my topic so I worked really hard on the two rough drafts,but now I have a feeling I will not be using it. Its okay though because it was nice to write it out. I know it would come together better with time but I want to keep my mind open to different topics too because I feel like it could be a lot better and I want it to be. Now as I try to come up another topic, I am struggling as well. I was thinking of talking about my child hood because I wrote about it in my first draft and it was fun and funny, but I do not know how I could tie that into a bigger meaning or a moral to be learned or having a message behind it. I will continue to think about this as well. A third option ( I know I am REALLY struggling with this) is to talk about my experience going to Egypt and what I learned. The problem with this is pictures!!! I also got the feed back of talking about Saints but I think that would be very serious and I wanted it to be more uplifting and silly at the same time. I am going to think harder about this before next Tuesday to come to my decision but it is kind of tough.
Another thing that I am struggling with is the music. It is hard to pick the music. I think once I put the images and narration together on the actual movie maker it may be easier to see what I want. Hmm…
