I just discovered that one of my new friends, Brittney, likes to listen to French music like me! And she’s an artist! So I’ve been sending her YouTube links of my favorite French songs and links of artists/illustrators. I told her about the drawings workshops I go to, so she went to one with me yesterday. She loved it! It’s so nice to find a kindred spirit.
My friend, Jewel, was the model for the workshop yesterday. This is one of the drawings I did of her:
We were talking with a group of other girls in the locker room about taking ice baths after a workout. I said that I couldn’t handle taking an ice bath and the most I could do was a cold shower in the locker room which was in actuality probably lukewarm at most. Then I went to take a shower and couldn’t get the hot water to work. The faucet was broken. The warmest I was able to get it was lukewarm. Very funny ghost boy.
I jokingly blame all of the weird happenings at the gym on the ghost boy that resides there. I know how far to take it, though. My friend, Rebecca, was making fun of the ghost boy, then immediately afterward she pulled her oblique muscle. It’s funny, but not funny. She didn’t think of the ghost boy being the culprit until I mentioned it. She freaked out. Lol!
I had to revise the text in my picture book this week, but I think it’s stronger now. It will be a miracle when I can actually get it out to agents. Geez! It’s talking so long!
I wrote down a couple of funny ideas for my comic book. They were inspired by my kids. My son also dropped his favorite Big Nate book in a pile of bird turd on the way to school. It was funny and I wanted to put it in my comic book, but he doesn’t want me to.
It’s so hard to decide on which to work on, my novel, my comic book, or queries for my picture book. Time is so hard to come by.
What are you celebrating?
