Centaurs courting in the woods in Minnesota. No telling what you will find on a walk through the woods!
We’re switching out days so my granddaughter can get more preschool stuff (she’s only 2), but at her daycare they’re teaching the alphabet and numbers on Mondays and Tuesdays. Her parents and I are also, but it doesn’t hurt to have all the reinforcement. That means I’ll have a WHOLE 7 days of no toddler babysitting after today. And HOPEFULLY, I can finish this book in those 7 days.
I love fantasy, mythologies from around the world and was fascinated with creatures such as the centaur. It’s so fun being able to create art that poses a story because from this scene all kinds of questions are asked. What is he offering. To whom? And how will it be received?
In writing a story, I have to think of what-ifs. What if the gift isn’t received favorably? What if it is? What if the recipient of the gift wants more? Where did the gift come from? Was it earned or stolen or found?
As I write on Red Wolf Christmas, I constantly have to ask myself questions. Have I set up the mystery early enough on? No. Why not? I didn’t know what it was at first. So I need to put a clue in earlier. That was the thought I had first thing when I was waking. So I’m off to add it!
