Dear Blog, I'm sorry! Sorry I left you for so long - a full month with no posts! Let me try to explain.
I have an agreement with my publisher to revise and update my book by August 31 and I couldn't be more excited. Well, I am more excited about my first grandchild who is due at the beginning of August. I've wanted to update this book for years, ever since it was first published, when I went through it and did one more edit. Now the industry has changed already and there is new information I want to share, about social networking, digital technology, new kit lists, more about prop styling, and fashion styling for music videos. Can't wait to begin!
It was all right, I kept telling myself. I am getting fresh material after a long spell of doing few styling jobs and lots of teaching. A new perspective on the industry. I had another styling job this week (after just a couple "last" days of the wall styling job).
Especially fun was remembering how much I love wardrobe shopping. I love the process of dashing from store to store looking for just the right garment and accessory, the thrill of putting hundreds of dollars on my own credit card, and the relief of crediting most of it back after the shoot.
So now I am home writing... in my blog. And working on the baby shower, and I still have some returns to make from the last shoot. And invoice for expenses. And then I'll begin... next week. Sign up for email notices at upper right if you'd like to follow the story.
