    @mariposa I’ve watched a Daniel Boone show too, but it was year ago. I really like it! I guess you can tell I like westerns 😊

    @mariposa You’re illustrating a trilogy? Is it like a picture book? Or more of a comic? Or a book with illustrations?? Please, tell me more! That’s so cool 😲😲😲😲😲

    I can't believe it's not butter!

    @jenwriter17 well first of all, I must have somehow missed your introduction cuz I don’t remember saying hello. Hello, and welcome. πŸ˜‰ I’m an old timer here, but I haven’t been around much lately due to crazy life. I’m so pleased to see new faces filling in.

    Writing goals… *whimpering laugh*

    Oh boy.

    1. FINALLY get the third draft of the book I’ve been working on for… eh… about two years straight now ‘completed’ and off for major beta-reading.
    2. Write one of the shorter standalone novels/novellas floating around in my head so I can actually publish something.
    3. Completely outline my series of eleven.
    4. Form good habits of marketing and experiment with the best ways to get more followers and engage them.
    5. Survive. πŸ˜›

    @jenwriter17 That makes two of us. πŸ˜‰ You might also like Laramie, Wagon Train, and Cheyenne because they are westerns. It’s kind of funny, for the longest time I did not like westerns at all. The only westerns I’d seen were ones like Gunsmoke and I thought all westerns were like that. Then my mom got Bonanza from the library and I was hooked after the third episode. 😁

    @itisastarrynight It’s a book with illustrations. πŸ™‚ It’s a middle-grade book about a scientist who travels back in time to the dinosaur age. I’ve finished all but one of the illustrations for the first book, but I haven’t done any for the second and only one for the third.

    Here’s one from the first book:

    Father and Son

    @kate-flournoy Those are some pretty awesome goals to tackle! i’m sorry, i don’t think i introduced myself. i must’ve missed that. do you think it’s too late to do it now?

    @mariposa i agree; i never really liked Gunsmoke either. Your drawing is amazing, girl!!!

    @mariposa Cool! thanks for showing one of the pictures. It makes me want to start using colored pencil again. .

    I’m also planning to do illustrations for my current writing project. Though I’ve only read like 3 of them, it’s going to be comic-style.

    I can't believe it's not butter!

    @mariposa A boy named Arlo wants to be an astronaut, and hes close to achieving his dream when plunged into the internal conflict of a deep sea, underwater culture. He has two supporting characters (for awhile muahaha) to helpΒ  him on his journey.

    I dont usually do “new years resolutions” but I do want to work on
    *learn the art fundamentals
    *make progress in the writing of my story
    *get consistent with when I choose to work on creative projects

    I can't believe it's not butter!

    Okay. Goals. Resolutions.

    I have resolved to get on this topic.
    There.

    Goals.

    • I’d like to finish the sequel of Sector One.
    • Edit the second draft of Sector One to make it a third draft.
    • Practice writing query letters and synopsyseses…(D.G. That’s not how you spell that… Quiet! *melts chair*)
    • Ahem. Also to write Dragonfly Kiwi.
    • Possibly create an author website in the summer.
    • Publish something, whether on KP or Amazon
    • Brainstorm for another story in my head.
    • Plot and write the third book in the Sector One trilogy.

    Perhaps I’m being too ambitious.

    @dragon-snapper these are definitely tough goals, but I’m sure you can do it…….and survive at the same time, lol! I want to get a website up during the spring/summer too.

    @itisastarrynight your WIP sounds cool!
