Not really a novel but you’d think it was considering the amount of time I’ve spent on it. I have been thinking, doodling, drawing, painting, rethinking, redrawing, rewriting, repainting a children’s book for about 5 years now.
My problem is that I can never finish it to my satisfaction. I’m not sure I ever will!!
So for now, I’ve decided to just finish the drawings (I’ve been working on a 32-page template). Then when I finish the drawings I may do a self-publish to see what I think of it.
Here is one of the drawings. My goal is to do one or two drawings/paintings per week.
It’s not like I want to be a rich and/or famous children’s book author/illustrator. I just have other books in my head. I need to get those out of my head and onto paper. But I want at least ONE book done before I start the next project.
Hopefully it won’t take 5 years for each one! If anyone has any words of wisdom for me, I would welcome it!!
