The other day, David asked me to come up with a sort of business plan and decide what I want to accomplish this year. He's just trying to help me out, and I see where he's coming from on this, of course. He doesn't want me to get lost in my process without a deadline. And, I'm afraid, if he hadn't pushed me on my last book, I would have put off finishing it indefinitely. But the problem is, I'm doing something here that I've never done before, so it's impossible to give myself a timeline on this project. I've illustrated children's books, of course, but I didn't write them. When I have my book written, I can give myself a deadline for the illustrations. But before that, I'm just not sure.

But after talking this over some more, he understands what I'm saying. And I think that I will aim to get my book done in time for Christmas, but if I can't, then I'll just promote the Owl and the Pussycat book that I've already done. That sounds like a good plan.

Right now I'm still gathering ideas and brainstorming. I have a story idea, but I'm working on figuring out how I want to tell that story. I could go at least three different directions with it that I'm seeing right now, and I'm not sure which one would work better. I think I'll just start exploring these different angles, which means, of course, that I'll be doing a lot of writing that I'll end up scrapping. And it's hard to work for hours every day with nothing tangible to show for it. But I just need to be patient with this part of the process.
