Writing is hard for me, which is why I am so dependant on the visual. This does effect a large portion of gaining a professional practise.
Having said that accepting and understanding this is a portion of the problem solved!
Setting up NewRED and working with the others has been a great support group. People that acknowledge and understand your strengths rather your weaknesses is a great way to boost your confidence, for example I would have never published this post a few months ago.
After my degree, I intend to set up a small pilot organisation/club that looks to the needs of people who are creative and are struggling/struggled with similar problems.
Sometimes its not about the fact you cant read or write like other, its more about acceptance and understanding by both yourself and others.
