"Death of a Writer"

Self Portrait July 2010

This is now one of my favourite pieces, the concept came to me as I was laying in bed, I believe two nights before my surgery. I debated writing the idea down, but knew I wouldn't forget by morning but instead I never could sleep and got up and finally gave into my muse hours later and set up the shot and got the result I wanted almost immediately.

I'm unsure if the painkillers they had me on had anything to do with this.

Publishede arthor I know want to know if she may use this on her re-mastered book, Want to Love and Want to Kill. It is already published, but she wants to re-write it and make it even better and this would be perfect.

Hey thanks sweetie, I really appreciate it! I broke my nose and was pretty wired either naturally or the pills they gave me intensified it.... I came up with the concept late at night, tried to go to bed, ended up staying up all night and eventually just shot the self portrait. It was immensely meaningful to me (I'm a writer) and it came out just like I wanted. I'm very appreciative that you took the time to feature this, thank you so much! :heart:

Thank you! And thank you for noticing the same things I did.... I fell in love with the lighting probably on the second test shot after some readjusting. It all came together really well for me. (I was up all night on either insomnia or the pain pills from breaking my nose kept me up or intensified it.)

Ahhh, yes. I have chronic insomnia so can deeply sympathies. I hope your nose is going better and that you and sleep can become better friends.
