Thursdaily with brain weasels.

Preschool went great today. Guppy reports that there was painting and playing, and she brought home a hand-print spider. Here's a photo from today. I took this photo at 2 in the afternoon, and you can see how low the sun is. Mornings are getting darker and darker!



I am drowning in insecurity today. Brain weasels are working hard to convince me that I am a failure. ("C'mon, adult coloring books are the hottest things since sliced bread, why aren't you famous yet? You must really suck..." they whisper at me. "You haven't sold a book in nearly a whole day, and not one person bought the digistamp you put up yesterday...") I'm terrified my Kickstarter is going to be a total flop. It's more of a risk than my last few, and I'm deeply convinced my last few successes were flukes.

I need a weasel-whomping stick.

I am compensating by doing All The Things. Got nearly 1200 words on my novella at the tea shop this morning. I am also re-coloring the Fairy and Dragon artwork that is on the cover of Dotminatrix. I did paint it in 2000 - and I've improved a little since then. I sat down with the proof page of the linework and some Copics, and I'm quite loving it so far. Off to work further on it!

*HUGS* Darn those brain weasels! Where are those attack squirrels when you need them? I've seen some of those other coloring books, the geometric design ones seem really boring to me. *crosses fingers for kickstarter*
I was going to work on a coloring book page the other night...and fell asleep looking at it. >_< BUT I have one finished, and another I want to fixerorize, and possibly another I can fix up, so I don't have to start from scratch. There are a lot of ideas in my Sketchfest bin. :)

Yay for coloring book pages and ideas! We've got a lot of time to finish them. :)

Brain weasels are the worst! Wishing you many successfull weasel-whompings -- and that the process isn't too much like playing whack-a-mole.

Yay, art and writing progress!

One of my friends told me that he got some of your art to color to help him feel better while recovering from surgery. That sounds like a pretty good endorsement to me!

Brain weasels suck. Maybe have Guppy draw you a stomping stick that you can look at when you are feeling that way? I know that would make me feel better.

Her favorite thing to do now is paint 'ormaments'. :) Which is sort of like having her make weasel-stomping sticks with me.
