Welcome, I am J. Duncan Lick, and that name is made up. Can you tell? I’ve gone Anonymous so that I might speak just a little more freely. This blog is for creatives looking to cross out of their current ‘career’ into a writing and/or artsy career.  My intention is to let you follow my every move, I’ll tell
you what is working and you can see what to avoid.  I’ll throw up some fun items and if all goes well take some of your stories and podcast/post them here.  But I’m way ahead of myself.

Why do this?

1.  I can’t stand office work.  However, any work I’m qualified to do involves sitting in an office.  I am a versed IT guy and an MBA, but I just don’t like being in an office.  The bosses, the cubicles, the social activities you have to do.  It’s all yuck to me.

2. I’m not a big people guy.  I’m not a misanthrope, I’d just prefer to work alone or with people online only. Writing is one of the few careers left that lets you work mostly solo.

3.  Mostly, I can do it. My head is full of these stories and ideas. 

That’s all I want to say about me.  Let’s focus on writing.  The artistic struggle. Creativity.  I want to do some good through this with you, for you.

I’ll be doing all this part time.  I have built a life in business and I have a family. I’ll be sure to post things that work for busy people.
