book projects

Art is?

I believe everyone is an artist.

I just hit the submit button,  on my third book. As I read the final words, my mind wandered.

I’ve spent a lot of time on this book. I rewrote it many times Ana was originally supposed to be a bee.

George well he was inspired by Elvis.  He still is 

That all changed.

I’m happy with the final edition. I keep thinking about how much work goes into writing a book. I can’t imagine authors who write chapter books.  How do they do it?

I know more than every, that once you start writing the characters, and the story takes on a life of its own. Its like this force takes over . You have to write. You’re tired and your eyes hurt but you have to finish it. I think I even dreamed about these characters.  

I want to gaze upon a rethogot tree. I want to attend the jolly jam. I want to paint more trees.

I hope my readers feel the same.

what could be better than publishing two books in a matter of  weeks. I have been working on these books for a long time but these past few weeks I’ve been working like crazy to finish these books. 

I published them days ago. People love the book cover and the idea.  It made me smile…made me laugh…made me happy.

Seriously writing a book is hard. I love the painting. The stories practically write themeselves. BUT it’s the editing mind games that twist you up. Do I keep this? Who are these characters? What’s the message? Will I make the kids smile? Bartholomew makes me smile?

At some point I began writing because this story was filled with lessons I need to read, lessons I need to live.

What a lesson to learn from. Some dogs want to fly. Some foxes want to sing. Some bears want to paint. Some rabbits rather grow strawberries. Why not. For when you explore and listen to the voice that tells you the truth, you discover there’s a world of wow-a world of no impossibilities.

 

I have two books written. What I love most about these book projects is that I am learning to let lose and just create. I am learning to listen to curiosity.
