Resolutions: The 2018 Edition
Complete The Prisoners of Sparta: The Raiders of Folklore Book 3.
This goes without saying. I’m already a few chapters into this work-in-progress… and I’m liking it—a lot.
Complete Oh No! Where Did Dopey Go? My first foray into picture books.
I’m well into this project too. It’s going to be different from other picture books I’ve seen—and as a librarian, I’ve seen a few. I won’t go into detail right now, but I think it’ll be pretty neat.
Run a Kickstarter campaign for the above picture book.
After the success of my previous Kickstarter campaign (thanks to all of you), I’ll be planning another campaign, this time focusing on the picture book. Stay tuned.
Create and promote my Patreon page.
What’s Patreon you ask? Like back in the Renaissance when wealthy nobles used to support great artists and thinkers of the time, it’s now possible to support artists, writers, musicians, filmmakers, etc. around the world. Patreon is a web-based platform that helps artists, writers, etc., do this. If you want to know more about Patreon, go to the website here.
Get back into my artwork.
This is something I’ve wanted to do for a while. I used to sketch and get in touch with my “artistic” creative side when I was younger. I’m planning on blending my photography and my rookie-photoshopping skills to create something neat. Chances are there will be a lot of ski themed prints :)
And that’s it. Let’s see how many of these I complete when I revisit this newsletter next year.
Do you have any resolutions, ones that are out-of-the-ordinary? I’d love to hear them. Jot them down in the comment section below.
What I'm Reading
But when a young woman—the fourth in three weeks—is found dead at the side of a dusty road with a thin white ribbon wrapped tightly around her neck, Robertson fears that a serial killer is on the loose. In a country plagued by years of extreme poverty, civil war and the struggle to establish a functioning government, the policeman realizes that it’s up to him and his Dinka partner, John Deng, to find the killer before they can strike again.
The Kamloops Society for the Written Arts is sponsoring this workshop. The workshop will be geared towards those interested in learning more about Kickstarter and how crowdfunding can help get your project become a reality.
