780. 780 postcards to 780 art buyers. 780 times my photo will cross the desk of someone who might be interested. 780 seconds to make an impression. 780 opportunities to grab enough attention to interrupt the trip to the trash can. Another milestone in my new career, and from what I've read, from what I've heard, I can expect...nothing. I'd love to start getting briefcases full of money, but everything points toward a long struggle before that happens. Over the next six weeks I'll be calling local buyers and setting up appointments to show my book. This usually results in more immediate results. But it's nerve-wracking. I fully expect to flub my lines embarrassingly the first couple of calls. But I'll keep doing it. At about half steam, ha ha. Anyways, feels good to be here. Yeah.
