I’m just formatting my text and illustrations. I feel a little discouraged tonight. I feel unsure of myself. It doesn’t help that one of my illustrators (a daughter), just walked up, saw her illustration and said, “I hate those drawings! They’re terrible.”
But you know what? This is a labor of love. I plan on donating 20% of all my work to children in need. This book is far from perfect. But it comes from the heart and I’ll always cherish it as my first published book and one in which both of my daughters contributed.
Formatting is a pain in the derriere.
