A small talk about pricing your art
You're creating art. You have the passion, you have the skills. Why not make some money out of it then? It's a good idea, right? A lot of people live from creating art, and even more earn some money on the side by taking commissions. You should give it a shot!
So... How much money is your art worth?
It's a hard question to answer for those who are just starting their adventure with selling and creating art for money. Is its worth equal to the price of the materials you used? Is it equal to the value of the time you've spent on creating it? What about the emotional value you put into it? Should your education influence your prices?
No matter if art is your job, hobby or a pastime, you should never undervalue it. In this article I will try to give some tips as to how assess the value of your artwork and touch the problem of too low prices.
We're in it for the money.
Let's be honest - if you're reading this then you probably want

How to Take Care of a Writer
So you've found out that a friend or a family member is a writer? Do not panic! Remember, a writer is still a mostly functioning human being that can, with proper care, live a long, happy, life.
Step one: Preparing a place for your Writer.
When your writer first shows signs of it's chosen profession is the best time to set up a comforting and calm environment. Writers can be skittish and needy, and their specific needs change based on their personality. The basic thing to do is set up an area of your home for the writer to work it, a "Office" if you will. Make sure this place has your writers preferred work equipment in side as well as; warm blankets, comfy pillows, a spinning chair(A writer's preferred method of play)and at least one shelf for their favorite books. Do not worry if your writer doesn't writer all the time and tries to bury it's self in the items you have provided, I assure you this is a normal part of the creative process.
Step two: What to feed your Writer

Sending out a plea to Colorado residents. Estes Park depends on tourist revenue.  Autumn in Rocky Mountain National Park, with its elk and scenery, draws thousands of people to this lovely town, and is critical to their local economy.  It is a necessary boost that gets them through the lean winter months. Between the floods and the government closure of the national parks, Estes Park has been slammed from two directions.  But the town is still open; the stores and restaurants are still open. And they sure could use our encouragement and support.  Highway 119 is open, too, so please treat yourself to the lovely drive up there, enjoy strolling through their many wonderful shops and treat yourself to a meal at one of their fine eateries.  Even if all you have is a cup of coffee, just the fact that you took time and trouble to drive up there will bring hope.

Note:  For those of you who don't live in Colorado, or the USA, Estes Park is a lovely mountain town that sits at the entrance of Rocky Mountain National Park.  Severe flooding in Colorado in September closed two major highways to the town.  The remaining highway is a longer route.  The elk in the National Park and the town itself are a huge draw in the autumn, as a the beautiful leaves, so people have put up with the longer drive.  In the fall, Estes Park has a big festival called Elk Fest.  Then the government closed the parks, pretty much eliminating tourist traffic to the town.  Here are some links you might find interesting:
