I'm a little bummed with myself. A few weeks back I signed up for a writing class. I was hoping it would kick start things for me, get me back into a writing groove, and it didn't work.
Things have just been so hectic around here that I let it slide and I didn't even hand in the last few assignments. I just don't have the desire anymore.
I took the class as a last ditch effort to drum up some motivation as far as writing goes, but it's just not there anymore. It's actually been more of a burden, just another thing I feel guilty about. So I've decided, once and for all, to finally stop freelancing and to put all of my energy into my photography.
It feels kinda good to let it go, to actually say it (or write it) out loud. Because writing is something that I've been doing since I graduated college, I felt like that was my only talent. For a time I felt like that was what I was supposed to be doing. Don't get me wrong I still love to write, but not on a deadline. I'll just continue to write for me. To record the things that are special to me.
On that note, I'm going to start another blog. I decided that since I'm going to focus on my photography and all the things it takes to start a business that it might be fun to document it all. As it stands now, no one knows about this blog. Not my husband, not my mother, not even my twin sister. I wanted a place to write about things that are personal to me and I didn't want to worry about being judged. It's one thing to have strangers read about my life, but I felt like I would always be holding back if my family was reading.
So, the photography blog will be something they can all take part in. I'm going to work on getting it set up by the end of the week. I'd like to document my journey from here on out. I hope you'll join me!! I'll let you know the link as soon as it's ready.
And now for this week's Thursday Theme: Collections. I would like you to come check out my portfolio building set on Flickr. It's a collection of photos that I think are pretty good. Some are of my girls and some are not. I hope you'll leave me some feedback. What can I do better?
