We can categorize projects in many ways. One of the most important categorizations is what I call: LOUD and QUIET.

LOUD projects tend to be event-based and massive in scope. They also tend to be very public. Examples include: Jeff Yu’s pop-up restaurant (2017), Pearlanna and Taylor’s spaghetti fundraiser (2016), the Brotatoes world record attempt (2015), Sean Kane’s Smash Bros. tournaments (2017).

QUIET projects tend to be more personal and less public. Examples include: Josh Dolphin’s hiking guide (2017), Kendall Cook’s novel chapters (2016), Monica Hollenbeck’s how-to-draw book (2015), Catie Collins’ travel guide (2017).

You have to pick what’s best for you.
