Well, I am sorry to say that my priorities have gone slightly askew. Some might thing it is spring fever. Not exactly. Just a lot of change and growth.
I have to be honest and tell you, I am so excited about that. SO much so I am finding working is a joy again. Switching gears from writing childrens back to my love of fiction has made me so happy!
No, that doesn’t mean I will be altering that promise. It just means I won’t be hard nosed about when I get them done. That will reflect in a much better produced story. THAT makes me extremely happy.
My gkids deserve the best, and pushing through sure wasn’t getting either of us there.
No new illustrations or photos to share, yet. However, last week we spent a day working on the business blog and adding the other part of Kolb Web Inc into the WordPress family. (Won’t mention that other formate he started blogging.)
There is nothing like being in cahoots with your best friend. We had been talking about this, and planning as well. It all seemed like a far-fetched dream. Now here we are taking baby steps.
Speaking of baby steps. Some might find that the lack of sales and ‘success’ in Snowball a downer. Not so. I knew it would be miserly with sales. It was my first (and like I say worst). We all start somewhere; Snowball is my starting point (writing and illustrating).
I have to keep writing and drawing. Then you know what comes next? More writing and illustrating. When I get enough of that done, I suppose there will be even more writing and illustrating to come. See the redundancy in this. THAT is where and when I will find the success most people define it as.
Me, I define success as this moment right . . . now. And every moment here after. I did the hardest thing I ever thought I would do. I finished a story, and published it. Pow! I knocked it very slowly and painfully out of the ball park. Home RUN!
Dream big! Then do something about that dream.
Happy Weekend to you,
