In case you’ve never wandered over to my About Page (or Aboot for that matter), I’d like to share a bit of my professional life. As much as I would love for that to be Author, Photographer, or any other creative pursuit, I make my way in the legal field. While I’m not an attorney, I have worked my way up the litigation support ladder to where I specialize in trials. I usually end up doing around 3 trials a year, and sometimes as many as 4, and once even 5. This week I finished my third trial in as many weeks, and my fourth of the year!
Exhaustion is an understatement.
I have been doing what I can, when I can, but my creativity has had to take a back seat to my primary responsibilities. Even though I am still recovering, I’m happy to report that despite how all consuming trial as been, I have been nurturing my little spark of creativity. I managed to make it out and get pictures on a Sunny day (in Portland in February!), I’ve been helping a friend edit his manuscript for publication, and I was able to compile all the Brass Automaton stories I wrote with Mark Gardner into a single document for review and editing.
Indeed it is this last one to which I am now turning my attention. As I go through I’ve decided to blog about the process. I’ve never been this far down the writing path before, so I’d like to share how I’m doing and what I’m doing. With Mark as the lead author and guide, I’m sure it will go significantly smoother than if I was going it alone!
So I hope everyone is doing well with their own projects, works in progress, and “Life,” and I look forward to getting back into rhythm.
