The saying goes something like: find what you love and you’ll never work a day in your life. It’s been an incredible summer of love then. Since June my various creative partners and I have:

  • Wrapped, edited and released our first music video
  • Finished our second which is days away from release
  • Wrapped our third for which we are between rough assembly and first draft edit
  • Completed three drafts each on two features for a production company
  • Shot and edited two episodes of a reality show
  • Run a creativity-packed writing retreat in Italy
  • Planned 2015’s writing retreats and classes
  • Nearly completed a branding relaunch for said class offerings

I’m not trying to swagger about all this. Rather I’m delighted and thankful I’ve had the freedom to do it. As the seasons shift and most have a back-to-school, back-to-work mindset, I feel like a kid running down the dock at a lake house. What’s next for my creative game? The only thing to do is leap out over the green water and see.
