Nothing like the excitement of a new project to get my creativity rolling. I love the beginning of projects, when all possibilities are open and the road is yet traveled. So here we start Humblearts Journal on blogger. I've had my blog for a few years but over the last two years it's been beyond neglected. My old computer is not a fan of typepad and I'm over here blogging almost everyday anyway for my beady empire.
So what shall we start with? A list and a plan for November. I'm giving a presentation at our next SCBWI meeting on Marketing for Authors and Illustrators. So I need to practice what I'll be teaching and preaching. I'm great at the knowing, not so good at the doing!

Bite size, specific and with a deadline. Now that's how you set a goal. (Illustrator quakes in boots, must stay consistent...)
