Wolff Bros 2 is finished! I finally figured out what I needed to do at the end! Yay!!!!! I did some more weeding this morning. My reward. But also, it’s cooler out this morning, so wanted to get some work done. Beta readers have the book and next I’m off to work on the promo blogs for Joy to the Wolves!
So I resubmitted so I can do my next no hair portrait. I have 2 more and then, maybe short hair? Not sure.
But first, I’m off to find the blogs I need to write for the upcoming new release. After that, Dreaming of the Wolf novella, and then! I’m writing the Halloween novella for cougars. I’ve been doing that every year for the past two years now also. They’re fun.
I’m getting closer to the end of Wolff Bros. I better be. I’m running out of time to write the novella for Dreaming of the Wolf too.
I wrote 2,000 more words, broke up a couple of chapters, edited the first 19 chapters. I’m up to 96K, wrote one of the scenes I needed to, and now I need to finish another and add one more. 🙂 And edit 5 more chapters. I have to get this done by Tuesday, sooner, if I can.
I am taking the fur course now too. I kept seeing all the adorable fur baby pictures and decided to do it.
If I keep telling myself that, maybe I will stick with it. lol
You shouldn’t ever compare yourself to others–whether in how good they are at something, how much they have, whatever it is–you need to be you. But sometimes when you’re told you’re doing it wrong–and you look at how some are doing it who are really good at this, you think, hmm, maybe this isn’t for me.
But what is their past? Have they used a Wacom for eons? Many have. And I’m just learning. Have they painted real paintings before? Some have. And I never have. So I have to tell myself it’s like when I began writing. It’s not like reading a story and knowing how to do it. It takes some study–at least it did for me–to see what you actually had to do to write a novel.
And practice! My first composites were awful. Not that I sometimes don’t do lousy composites now, or lousy photos, or lousy paintings, or even goof up my writing and have to go back and fix it. Everybody does! But it’s all a challenge and–I’m not going to be a Photoshop Oil Painting Dropout!
Maybe I won’t ever be that good at it, but maybe I will be really great at it. And the thing is I won’t know that unless I keep on going. And practicing.
Have a super great day! Little one will be here shortly and I’m trying to get a million things done!
