At my signal, unleash hell

“Three weeks from now, I will be harvesting my crops. Imagine where you will be, and it will be so. Hold the line! Stay with me! If you find yourself alone, riding in the green fields with the sun on your face, do not be troubled. For you are in Elysium, and you are already DEAD!
Brothers, what we do in life… ECHOES IN ETERNITY!”

“Everybody walks past a thousand story ideas every day. The good writers are the ones who see five or six of them. Most people don’t see any.” – Orson Scott Card

“To be a writer is to sit down at one’s desk in the chill portion of every day, and to write; not waiting for the little jet of the blue flame of genius to start from the breastbone – just plain going at it, in pain and delight. To be a writer is to throw away a great deal, not to be satisfied, to type again, and then again, and once more, and over and over…” John Hersey

“Exercise the writing muscle every day, even if it is only a letter, notes, a title list, a character sketch, a journal entry. Writers are like dancers, like athletes. Without that exercise, the muscles seize up.” Jane Yolen

Finally, I think I’ve pushed through my period of panic and uncertainty and unhappiness with my work.

I wanted to find a way to balance money-earning work and uncommercial creative work better – and to make good money from my skills and talents without having to do the same thing week in, week out. I’m easily bored and am much happier working on new ideas and completing projects quickly.

So: stop the simple cheap websites for people – start making more online video for slightly larger companies doing good things who need video to tell their stories better.

Short, well-paid, achievable projects, and no guilt for spending time working on personal video projects (self-development).

It seems obvious, but JESUS it’s taken me a long time to work it out.

Thank you Katie for putting up with me through these recent Black Dog days and helping me see the light.

“Andrew you’ve got to be number one! I won’t tolerate any losers in this family. Win. Win! WIN!!!”

Yeah, I know. It’s a day late. Which is kind of missing the point of Twittervlog. What a fat loser.
