Goodness, I am way overdue with doing some updating around this tiny little blog. Way. My business, (no, really, it's not suppose to be just a hobby) that needs some serious direction too. Frankly, it's just time to grow up a little bit and make some decisions about these things.
So, I spent the day writing a business plan outline. No really, I'm deep into my 5th hour. One would think these are boring, but they're very much the opposite. That is, if you're ready to write one. And I am.
For a magpie, like myself, that is easily distracted by shiny things, staying on task can be a bit challenging. So, I decided to go a little bit old school with the process. *gasp* Not pen and paper. Yes, yes, really old school.
What? Is she going weird? No. Maybe. I don't know, probably. Once upon a time, someone that was very important in my life used to send me scathing and hurt-filled letters on graph paper, written in green marker. I know, I know, too much for business. But I'm not very conventional and Everything I do is who I am, not what I am. I needed to work through that connection to my past and start looking forward to my very happy and exciting future. So, there it is; graph and green and a side of psychology.
Kinda weird? Probably. But, that's how artists roll. We just think of shit, stupid shit, to help ourselves work through shit.
Besides, I love me some green and graph paper is probably the all time best paper in the world. Ever. Having either of those things associated to something negative is just wrong. Wrong, wrong, wrong.
So, anyway, my new logo work is a tiny bit juvenile and likely not the final draft. But, on the other hand, what I make and what I do is typically *for* juveniles, so maybe it works.
Today though, it totally works. It makes me smile and it is something to get me focused. To get the flow moving again.
Old school, the best kind of education.
