This is my own personal version of Natalie's Saturday Sketch, Renee's Photoshop Friday and Kasie's Maddeningly unhelpful advice Monday. Let's call it Stick Figure Thursday. What, there's no alliteration in that? Well let's just say that the quality of the drawing is represented by the totally sub-par title. (And no, don't expect a reoccurring column. Come on people, this is me we're talking about.)
So without further ado, here it is, my creation. Tada!
In honor of Natalie, I drew it myself; in honor Renee, I added captions; and in honor of Kasie, it will in no way help your life. Oh yeah, and in honor of Carrie, it makes me snarf! If the rest of you all want honors then you must start a reoccurring series that somehow relates to the themes I write about (good luck figuring out what those are).
So why the extra blog effort today? I finished my first book...again. For the third time. This time for real, maybe. And this is a big deal, not because I think I'm going to get an agent with my first book (I mean I guess it could happen, but what are the chance really? ), but because it means that it is no longer hanging over me. I can now focus whole-heartedly on my two other books (one which is almost done) without feeling like a loser/quitter/ non-committer. I feel free and happy and light as a feather! And in the coming weeks I will be experiencing the joy of beta readers who for once have a whole book to tear apart instead of just tearing pieces of a book into even tinier shreds. I can't wait!
