JOU10007: Photo Essay

The Long Gestation of an Idea to Birth a Book!

Lobo Loving Cupid!

This photo essay follows the gestation journey of creation - from idea to book. Every book begins with a single thought, an idea implanted when we least expect it, and so begins this photo series.

 

An idea can be lost or nurtured. In the nurturing, an idea must be explored, de-constructed, and reconstructed and this photo series follows the path through brain-dump, first draft, and edit, with the final shot showing the completed manuscript born of commitment, dedication, and passion.

 

My Place-holder photo is the accumulation of creation and production

with the book printed and being enjoyed with an extra fun Cupid twist!

It came to me in a dream. And so it begins.

Braindumping the idea. Pour the wine!

PHOTO 3:

Time for the vomit copy. Come at me!

PHOTO 4:

Oh dear - all the editing! So much red.

PHOTO 5:

It's done! All the words, all the wine.
