I’d guess that a lot of artists work in studios attached or inside of their homes. It’s less expensive than studio space and infinitely more convenient. That said, working at home requires a extra dose of self disipline. Sometimes I forget to respect my work space. I’m nearly finished with every single piece of sculpture I have orders for or owe people for this or that. I think tomorrow, when the last of the work is boxed and ready to ship out, I might give the space a good tidy-up, bring in a coffee maker and clean cups and refresh the music supply. Yes, it’s a right-brained profession and most of us in it are a little nutty. Still, it is a profession. Pretty cool one too.
Oh---and writers, you’re not off the hook. That saying about the clean desk isn’t actually true…
I wanted to thank everyone so far who has submitted work for Tiny Stories. The more I get to know you, the more you blow me away. I’m looking forward to doing some “live” right-brain aerobics in the future---both online (I’d bet my luggage Ravyn just peered evilly at this over her glasses) and as part of convention programming. And extra, extra thanks to everyone who listed or mentioned the project on your websites. SlaughterHouse Studios: Tiny Stories
