Building a Body of Work
Imagine that there are drops of water falling into a bowl or dish below.
Each drop changes the quality of the liquid maintained in that dish.
For instance, it can make the substance stronger as a whole, or weaker, depending on the quality of each and every drop.
Now, imagine that the bowl contains your body of work, and each drop is a new addition.
A blog post drips into the pool.
A tweet starts a delicate ripple.
A novel makes a heavy splash.
Each drop increases the volume of the liquid below.
Only you determine the quality.
What is your body of work made of?
What is its nature?
How pure is the final pool, and how much is merely debris?
You build your own legacy.
Drop by drop.
