When people who have modeled for me use my photos as icons on livejournal, pictures on myspace, load them on to flickr or on their personal webpage, I feel like it’s just about the biggest compliment they could give me. It’s so flattering that they use my photos day after day, to show the world who they are.
Yesterday I found a website (you know I Google everyone, right?) where someone from my past (who I am certain hates my guts, soul, and life-purpose) has a picture I took of them on their front page. The front page! They hate me, but they’ve still put a photograph I’ve taken on their front page. Not credited, of course, but it’s still flattering.
That’s like saying “I hate you personally, but you’re work is good.”
To be valued for your personality, that’s important. To have value because of your work, well, that’s a great feeling too.
I’m not very eloquent this morning. I’m still in editor mode. I have about a hundred pages of edits to get though before Friday. I would laugh in the face of all this, but I’m too tired right now.
I have this novella right now, and I’m thinking, after I finish the edits, of posting it here and podcasting it. At first I was thinking I should turn it into a novel and sell it, but there are several reasons why I don’t think that would work, but I still want to share it.
Back to fiction soon.
