After five years and a few months of daily photo-blogging, I burned myself out on it. That includes taking pictures. I didn't feeling like seeing through the camera anymore. Didn't want to carry the camera in the first place.
But sometimes, a photo is irresistible. After all, there is light, there is shadow, and there is chance. Plus I have a dog.
I thought I'd have more time when I stopped blogging daily, but of course I filled it. I'm working on many things this summer:
- Putting together a performance technique class for writers.
- Preparing my next book for publication (a non-fiction humor book called "Act As If," about the life of a journeyman actor in Hollywood)
- Writing and researching my next novel (first draft stage, this will take forever)
- Recording the audiobook of Camelot & Vine. (Have you read it? Feel free to review it, either on Goodreads or Amazon, even if you didn't like it. Apparently volume is the game on those sites, so the more the merrier.)
I thought I was going to get the back yard fixed up, but I'm having enough trouble finding time to sweep the back porch.
What are you doing this summer? Have you found more work to do, or are you giving yourself a break?
