It's awesome that you did all that in one weekend! Congrats on the 5. I'm definitely not giving up on mine. I'll just have to work really hard and maybe not get a lot of sleep and get it done. Last year I did a test run with about 10 pieces, and that's under the concentration tag on my page. The AP2D tag is for this year. I'm doing less altering that I did last year, so hopefully it'll work out.

haha, thanks~. i couldn’t have done it without my bestfriend, audrie, who was my lovely model. + ah, so damn neat! you live in georgia ? (or did i misunderstand something i read when i was creepin’ your concentration tag ?)

I’m just going to jump in and start writing—

I’ve been doing a lot of thinking: how to get back into my writing, for it’s been a really long time. It’s not that I haven’t written in a really long time, it’s that I’m not actively writing and I’m not pulled to it to the point that I immerse myself in it. I’m not as excited, I’m not watching films, I’m not searching out language and reveling at its ring. I’m not immersed in writing, in language, in exploring ideas, and that bothers me. I want to have a space to do that. 

I’ve been looking at particular blog that has me wanting to throw myself into the process: http://luizachelaru.tumblr.com/. She’s a photographer, a real talent, and completely excited about what she does. The last part is what I admire most of all. Sustaining that energy is so difficult for me.

When I’m doing what I love, I love it, so why don’t I make time for it? I think I’m far too over committed. English major+upper level biology and psychology and french and music, literary magazine editor, radio show dj and researcher, chamber music performer, violinist, information services consultant, etc. etc. And I want to be a writer? Where’s the time?

That is amazing. I wish I could do that, but my entire series is composed of large cyanotypes, and they take a long time to do. I go through and alter them after too, and that takes even more time. I kind of hate myself for choosing to do this.

thanks! you can check mine out under the tag “concentration”. + i just went through and took a little peek at what you have posted. fuck, i’d love to see the entire twelve piece collection. there is no way you could develop the idea to take less time ? giving up because of time seems like such a sad way to go.
