June 12, 2009 Two Fisted Tales of Knowing One’s Limitations
Wednesday evening I was watching Samurai Champloo, downloading Window 7 Release Client and developing the characters of my next novel when I was reminded of my A B Project limitation. Project A is what I have to do, what makes money, the job. Project B is what I want to do, what satisfies my creative needs, the writing. Ideally someday Project B will become Project A and then I’ll take up restoring antique birdhouses or something, I’ll worry about that if the time comes.
But lately I’ve been thinking about Project C, which has a better chance of becoming the new Project A but has a steep learning curve and start up time. No job lasts forever and it’s better to be prepared, I just don’t want to risk losing Project B.
