Earlier this evening, I had started another blog post that was supposed to go up tonight. But then I fed the pets for a second time and I washed dishes for the second time, and while doing that I knew I'd be writing a blog post for the second time. I drew the line at … Continue reading A second time
I finished two more ACEO's today. Which is good because I have to replace ACEO's which sold. I've been watching quite a few paintings and drawing tutorials lately. Drawing is really something else I need to start doing every day. My art teacher, the woman who changed my life, said that drawing for 15 minutes … Continue reading Adding more daily tasks
Writing Fenrir's Tales have been a good exercise for me. I'm glad I started them. While most of them are told from Fenrir's point of view, I've done a couple in different voices. So why do I think this has been so good for me? Yesterday while I was working away on the 9th Loki … Continue reading Fenrir Tales
Well, the soreness from weeding my garden yesterday wasn't as bad as I feared. Yes, I woke up stiff and sore, but I'd taken valerian last night to relax the muscles. As soon as I got up and got moving it wasn't too bad. As if weeding yesterday wasn't enough, the weather cooperated enough for … Continue reading Raking today
In a couple blogs lately, you've heard me talk about the classes I'm taking and short stories I've been writing for them. I haven't said much more than that. Well, writers, I have a deal for you. This week, WMG Publishing is offering 50% off all their classes this week. If you want to get … Continue reading Writers – never stop learning
I had a fascinating experience today in the way of a fantastic leap of personal growth. First, we need to step back to sometime around 1995. Among a course of other things going on in my life, I was returning to attending writers conferences which I hadn't been able to do while I was going … Continue reading Okay, wow!
This is a hard post to write. Why? Because I see myself as never good enough. Writing a post like this demands that I admit it. People around me would be shocked if they knew how deeply this runs to my core. After all, I was valedictorian of my graduating class and voted most likely … Continue reading Never good enough?
So on yesterday's blog, I showed some pictures of a space painting I'd been working on in 2018 and thought I had done. But then, as any good tale would have, conflict struck. I painted another picture that made it look like garbage. Well, what's an artist supposed to do? I'd say that the correct … Continue reading It was a date, remember?
This one might be geared a little more toward writers, but I think anyone who needs to write a regular newsletter would get valuable tips from this book. I picked this book up because I really wanted to learn how to do my newsletter better. I want to have an engaged audience, not just a … Continue reading Thoughts on Newsletter Ninja
I'm still continuing to work on the space paintings. Here's my next step in their progress. This one is the cloudy nebula. Trying to get a second layer on there without killing the first. The paints are still wet in this photo, so I'm certain they are much brighter than they will be when they … Continue reading Space – a continuing mission
