Thank you so much for your help yesterday. Because of your comments I have figured out a plan that I am sure will work. I will be disciplined and put aside an hour a day to work on the book and if inspiration comes, it comes, but I will leave a space open. I will forget about the illustrations for now and just finish the book. I will give myself plenty of time to work on the visual art on the weekends, so I won't feel deprived :-). It may take a little longer to finish the book this way, but at least it will get finished :-). To this end I wrote one and a half chapters yesterday. The chapters are small, the book is only 50-70 pages, so a chapter is only a couple pages, but still it felt good to get something done.
Today is Sunday and that means clay and ceramics (for now anyway). I drew up a bunch of designs and I can't wait to get going!
Happy Sunday! XOXO
