What's Next for You?

When people like your work, they want more of it.

Believe it or not, this can be a hard concept for writers and photographers. We love to refine. It's comforting. It avoids the pain of solving creative problems and producing more work. Creativity is a numbers game. The more we produce, the more we learn...mostly about ourselves.

How many photos are you not showing because they're still living in some kind of editing mode? How many book ideas do you have in your head?

While designing the A Lesser Photographer hard cover book, I was reminded of this (ever so gently) by a great business manager. Work on your new thing. The old thing is old.

Every hour spent on old work is an hour taken away from new work - from your growth as an artist.
