One thing I want to do is make hand made books. I’ve got no market for handmade books and one book takes a ton of time, so they aren’t practical.
But they’re fun, and I’ll probably make more.
Years ago, I started a story about two rabbits, Ink and Mirabelle. This weekend, I finished one version of their story. That’s one half-done project now off my table! That’s a good feeling. Many projects await.
I’m working on illustrating another children’s book for Plum Tree Books. That’s a priority, but I’m pondering one of the images. It’s a butterfly, and I love butterflies. But this has to be a just-right butterfly. Some projects have to sit a while before they click. This isn’t good when you’re on a deadline though.
I also want to work on my other manuscripts. I’ve got at least eight. That’s kind of crazy.
How do you decide what to work on? I have friends who have several projects going on and they can’t decide what to finish. Sometimes nothing gets finished. There’s always that other project that is more alluring, more promising, than the one in front of you.
One thing though about a cancer diagnosis, it motivates. I think about all the unfinished things I have in my office… I’m officially cancer free now (hurray!!), but this cancer journey reminded me of how life isn’t a promise. There’s a lot of work I want to get done.
What projects are you working on?
Thanks as always for stopping by.
