I wrote "It's Already Been Done Before" without a main character in mind. It was during a confusing time in the creative business of photography when I became overwhelmed with keeping up with the world which is fueled by social media and comparison. Turns out, most of us deal with these feelings at some point no matter our age... and I did what most artists do - close the notebook and put it on a shelf [for 8 years].
Something sparked within me this year. I had to make decisions. I had to put this out there. A common theme that anyone at any age could relate to - comparison, self-doubt, discouragement, our own thoughts holding us back from trying, or doing, or experiencing life! It's what I was doing!
A little bird, a common sparrow named Rue, became that main character. Going about her day of not doing anything, she actually is confronted about doing something. Sometimes it just takes a new perspective to change your course.
(Sometimes it's dusting off a notebook and doing something with the words inside.)
My hope for "It's Already Been Done Before" is to peak curiosity in an unassuming way, to inspire artists, entrepreneurs, children, and those immobilized by thought and self-doubt to do and try and experience all their world offers.
