You know, I love creativity. I love writing, drawing, brainstorming, outlining, filming...I just enjoy being creative. It's a shame that there aren't more opportunities to be creative. Then again, I guess there is really no shortage of such opportunities. Right now, I create in my time after my "real job".
I am starting to realize there is a certain amount of creativity that can be employed in my "real job".
I know there are a lot of other creators out there looking for a venue. I am starting to think that we have to make our own venue a lot of times. Find a tribe of followers, connect with them and market right to them.
I am thinking that the notion of being "discovered" might be a thing of the past, or at least a lot more of a crap shoot than it's ever been before.
There is so much noise out there, it's hard to convince someone you are different enough for them to produce.
Maybe the right path is to produce...and use your product to convince.


  1. Yes, that seems to be the current trend. Technology is making it so that we can create our own avenues. I dove head first into publishing six years ago and haven't regretted it. I'm not making a living at it yet, but I've had some wonderful experiences and made some great friends. If one day I am fortunate enough to make my living from writing, then I'll considerate that the icing.

  2. I would say you are an excellent example and a real success story! The reason I say that - I came across DA Adams through a convention in Chattanooga, TN (ConNooga) and have been a fan since then. Your marketing efforts at Third Axe Press seem to be working!
    Thanks for the comment BTW!

  3. Thanks for the kind words. Not sure I'll get to make it back to ConNooga this year, but I'm gonna try to be there at least on Saturday to do a panel or two.
