Preparation for the Next

Preparation for the Next - September 12, 2017

Considering that I shot and titled this photo a year and a half ago, and that the title feels as relevant today as it did then, it would be easy for me to feel like not much has happened over the past year, but it has.  Life has been busy and crazy and full of peaks and valleys (unfortunately, not enough literal peaks and valleys, but so it goes)...

Creatively, things have been in a bit of a lull, however, which is one of the reasons why I haven't been posting here.  There just hasn't been much to share and there has been nothing to support.  I will not be asking for Patreons while I am producing little new content.

And it might be a few more months before my next projects start taking shape...

This is not to say that I've been completely idle.  For the last few months, I've been working on editing a long and complex novel for a client.  In fact, the plan for 2019 is to focus more on literary projects than photography and video work.

Once I am done with this editing gig, the plan is to return to work on finishing the novel I started back in 2011 while doing some prep work on a second novel that has been germinating for about a year now...

Also, I will be taking another look at the movie on the Historic Columbia River Highway and evaluating the next steps for the public lands project, making a decision on which to tackle first.  As for the former, I do hope to rebuild the crashed out website by the end of the summer, at the very least.

So, there are a lot of "if this, then thats" in my world right now, plus the day job keeping my creative efforts in a very part time mode right now, but I am looking forward to a lot of great, new work lying ahead, just over the horizon!
