So, here I am, with my laptop…feeling that, as a new children’s book author/illustrator, I should keep a blog. But, who really cares that I’ve broken down today and eaten some chocolate, while I’m supposed to be cutting out sugar with this “21 day food challenge” thing that I’m doing? And, nobody gives a flying fig that I haven’t cleaned my house in how many days now, because my spare time is taken up with more pressing things like, promoting a recently published children’s book and getting a blog started. And, while all this is going on, in addition to putting together the storyboard for a new book, black dog hair is gathering in just about every nook and cranny in the house and the water in the fish tank is turning this rustic yellow color. (I did finally clean the tank and yes, the fish are still alive. The dog hair is still there.) Maybe I’ll hire someone to come in and clean, just this one time, so I can feel caught up a bit. My cheap side tells me to just do it myself. After all, it should only take an hour or two. For now, I’ll place that decision on the back burner and let it mull til Saturday. Until then, I think I’ll do some illustrating.
