This is my journey in creating concepts, writing, illustrating, finding a literary agent, and becoming a published children's book author and illustrator for the picture book genre.

hey!!! Where did I go?

Andy, Bug, and Claire
Great question! Well, soul searching for one. I have been searching for my writing voice. Is there really an artist out there that is completely confident in their work?  My nerves have been a bit raw. I feel myself uncertain as to the next step to take. Do I continue to send the same work or shall I allow it to metamorphosis into another story? I have added another character. My lady bug's name is bug. I hope that the addition of a female type character will add to the appeal. I doodle and draw a lot now. In a recent contact with another author, I was reminded that there are stock illustrators that publishers use. Can I change that? Well, introducing my art in combination with my writing couldn't hurt.
I am trying to find a balance in my life between family, world, and dreams. These last few days, all of these have been a daunting realization that I am the one in control of my accomplishments. At times, I feel that I really don't know what I am doing. I have a concept, work, and art. What I do lack is experience.Wayward moments are more common than I would like to admit. Many times a day, I feel as if I am running circles and unable to find a starting or ending point.
Here I am. I started this blog as a reflection and a way to define my voice as an author. I love the refinement and unspoken ability to warm an environment that etiquette offers. Thank you for reading and following my journey. As always, I am an aspiring children's book author and illustrator who is still aspiring... Now, back to some writing...
