I worked the same way - I had pieces of entries all going at once. That is
my teaching/ learning style, I guess. You will feel good though, when you
do finish an entry. Try to start doing that in Jan/Feb. You can always
revisit later, and you probably will. BUt you never know what circustances
lie ahead, and those video entries do seem to take a lot of time.
