Sometimes You Need to Shut Down the Business Side of Your Brain

    Very good advice, Vella. This was hard for me to learn because I have a business and accounting background. I can set it aside now, but at least I know my business side is there waiting when I need it.

    This is wonderful, Vella. There is such a balance with the pure joy of the art and the business side. I don’t have a book out there yet, still freelancing, but I do a lot to build my platform in the meantime. However, it’s easy to get out of balance and become so platform minded, that as you said, I don’t revel in the writing anymore. Thanks for the reminder. And glad to see your love has been renewed.

    Vella: I agree with the two fine ladies below….wonderful advice. I’m still heavy on the writing end, picking up bits and pieces of the business end. Former Oregonian, now in CO, I’ve climbed that mountain in your Crater Lake photo. Nice to see it, again. I found a surge in my writing after living here a short while. CO does that to you. Glad you found it as well.
