As I may have mentioned, I’m turning 30 in a couple of months. My writing goal was that I wanted to have a book published before I turned 30–Soul Stripper hits the shelves literally one month before my July 2nd birthday. Of course, I also made this goal at 25 (unsuccessfully so) and had I not accomplished it at 30, I would have set a new goal for 35.
That being said, I think goals are incredibly important. I’m setting new goals for myself as I type this. I’m not sure how I feel about sharing the new goals–I’ll have to think on that and get back to you. Goals as a general tend to be super personal for me; a journey I’m not sure I want any passengers for.
However, I’ve decided to start a photographic project–52 Shades of 30. Essentially (again, as most of you know, I am a photographer), I will be photographing self-portraits of myself once a week for my 30th year. I haven’t decided whether to do the project digitally with my Canon Mark ii or with film and my Hasselblad. Of course, digital will be SO much easier to maintain, however, I think the Hasselblad would take the project to another level.
I will keep you all posted on the progress and even post the images as they come. =0)
