Today I have started on a new journey. I started a writing course specifically for children and the YA crowd AND I have started stenciling to try and make some money while I hone my writing skills and continue writing stories.
Starting new things are not easy and I have done that a lot over the last few years. I used to feel bad and stupid because I kept changing my mind. Then I met some people (other than my hubby) that have shown me that it is okay to try new things until I find my ‘niche’ (looking at you Debbie Burns, Ginger Baker, and my soul sisters!).
I am a person who hates to be bored and when people are like ‘then go get a job’! Well, unfortunately I cannot go out and get a ‘normal’ job like everyone else due to a variety of health issues so I have been trying to find things that I can do from home that I can sell online. I can make jewelry *not as much as I used to do to nerve damage and Psoriatic Arthritis in my hands*, I can paint, I am a photographer, and I am a writer. So as you see, I have a lot of talent that I can pull from, it’s just getting my things out there and sold.
I posted pictures up above so you can all see what I’m starting on. First picture is my first book for my Writing Stories for Children course and the second is the stencil art I did in my sketchbook using colored pencils. I am going to attempt paint tomorrow so keep an eye out for my post!
I am looking forward to this new adventure and I hope you will come along with me!
