Have toyed on and off with doing The Artist's Way, but have never managed to do anything with it on my own. It's one of those activities where I know I would do better in a more structured environment.
2015 will be my third time doing The Artist's Way.
Writing: I published two collections of my poetry in 2014, and have enough for a third; I also maintain a blog (ordinaryaveragethoughts.wordpress.com). Photography: I've been doing this since I was a kid. These days, I shoot mostly Polaroids (thanks, Impossible Project!), but I also use my cell phone and my digital camera. I regularly post on Flickr (www.flickr.com/photos/lennbob). Graphic design: This was going to be my new career, but a crappy economy, a complete lack of interest in web design, and "major life changes" have pushed me in other directions. Audio editing: I started making mix tapes in the 1980s, then learned to edit on the computer. In 2013, I got the chance to edit (and master) four audiobooks. Music: In the 1990s, I released a number of cassettes under the name Tinty Music.In 2014, I remastered much of my catalog, and uploaded it to Bandcamp (tintymusic.bandcamp.com).
• get unstuck from some bad habits • gain perspective from other people's experiences • consider new ideas/opportunities that may not occur to me when left solely to my own devices
Copy editor, writer/poet, photographer, graphic designer, and all-around good egg (even though eggs are actually bad for me).
