Through LinkedIn I found a wonderful illustrator with whom I’m emailing about my vision of Annie and a contract. Someone also sent me information about some of the most famous illustrators with whom I have no hope of wanting to work with me as an unknown author. However, I’m grateful for the support and am thrilled my request is bearing fruit. I spent all day yesterday in pursuit of an illustrator.
At the close of a long day I downloaded a piece of software from Writer’s Digest called MasterWriter, a program designed to help me write better. It’s got all kinds of reference materials in it as well as a writer’s organizer and I’m eager to look at it. There’s a thesaurus, a dictionary, wiki, a rhyming tool, a phrase catalogue and a writing organizer. It’s a big piece of software and I have to designate time to learn it or at least enough time to decide whether I want to buy it or not. The free trial ends ten days from yesterday.
I know I have to set goals and formulate a time management plan. I still need to walk one or two miles a day and don’t want to give up my Pilates classes. My grandson is coming for another visit in three days and I need to get ready. We all need a life besides our internet one. So that’s all for now. I hope you get value from these posts as I share more about my life and less how to’s. More how to’s are reserved for later.
