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!
