I think I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. In the last three days I've gotten all the state maps done and three illustrations completed. Burt is having quite a few adventures as he visits some of our beautiful U.S. National Parks. I'm hoping to have the book out soon so you can see what he's been up to.
I'm on a weeks vacation from my day job and it's been great to relax and day dream a bit. Honestly, I haven't worked much on my current book but mostly sketching the storyline and making sure it flows. Sometimes that's the hardest part. I have so many ideas that pop into my mind but I always question it....does it work for the story? Does it make sense when a toddler is reading it? Am I getting off base?
Those are a few of my constant self doubting thoughts that keep popping into my mind. Arrghhh..
Sooooo.....to battle that mind racing dilemma and in between all the day dreaming and sketching, I've been playing Mario Kart! My guilty pleasure. Life is good.
