TAG writer is Lesson 11 guest blogger

Brains on Fire's Lesson 11When Eric Dodds of Brains on Fire came to speak at last month’s AAF meeting, it was an inspirational jab in the arm. Lucky for me, it happened the day before I volunteered on an all-night CreateAthon for local nonprofits. In my day-after, sleep-deprived haze, I tweeted Brains on Fire to share the movement-based work we created for one project. A few e-mails later, I am Lesson 11 guest blogger.

Celebrating Creativity

September 25, 2009

One of the most rejuvenating things about working in advertising is the creativity.

When Liz had back surgery awhile back, we created a Liz-edition Operation game. When the agency had our 25th anniversary, we didn’t get a Lucite paperweight; we got cool bowling shirts. With our names embroidered on them. That we wore bowling that afternoon. For my own baby shower last year, we had a potluck lunch and all the food had bacon in it. And, this past week we have been celebrating Andrew’s wedding.

There are plenty of people who go to work every day at a place where there’s no room for fun and laughter in-between all the real work. I am glad I am not one of them.
