The Middle Aged Crazy project has stopped right in front of your house. I’ve done a year’s worth of research, read over 30 books, taken numerous classes, opined on mid life and creativity and gone through a fair amount of life changes myself.
Now I need great stories.
I’d like to hear your story!
Recently, I changed the format of this blog to more readily accept video and I am looking into ways to interview you and record a video that talks about your mid life triumphs, experiences and even failures that involve creativity. I’d like to know if you became a new person later in life, if you released your beast and how you did it. Aside from publicizing your work and feeling validated, you will help to inspire and motivate others. And you will be a vital link to building a community of aspiring creatives.
So; here’s what I’d love help with:
* Suggestions on how to do video interviews over the internet in a cost effective and simple manner.
*Short films (3-5 minutes) that I can post on Youtube that show your work and your process and how it pertains to the Middle Aged Crazy concept. I’d like them to be family friendly, tell your story and show some of your work. (I can edit them if you want, using my software).
*Your stories in written form. (I will do minor edits).
*Pictures to use behind a voice only interview between you and I. We can just talk about you and your story and play a slideshow in front of it.
The concept of Middle Aged Crazy has morphed from a book into a community. I’ve looked into membership sites and while I still am considering the possibility, I’d like to begin by having an open on line community of stories to help people just like you, just like us.
So, answer below or drop me a line and we’ll figure out, together, how to make this magic happen.
