There are days when you just don’t feel like writing. The sentences are clunky on the page, you keep making excuses to go make tea and your hallowed writer’s ‘voice’ seems more like a rasping whisper. It must be the winter chill.

After a temporary hiatus in self-pity land, I began writing this evening. My writing process is made up largely of watching youtube videos for hours until the magical five minutes of inspiration arrives.

There doesn’t seem to be any short cut here. The videos must be watched until, somewhere, between “Bachata hits from 2004″ and “Another one bites the dust”, genius strikes.

So tonight, rather than watching youtube videos, I made this little piece about the Hidden Documentary journey so far. It has been so inspiring to meet such a diverse group of people from all across Melbourne. This is only just the beginning.
