Ok. I was too lazy yesterday to do a review. So I think that I will discuss my art studio… The store is Here. I plan today to put some of my paintings in there for sale.
A friend and fellow writer was showcasing my studio for her newsletter. She asked me to please update my logo as it was not what she felt fit me. There is so much history in my logo. The first was designed by someone who I loved dearly. She was not a good thing for me. So I needed to cut the ties. My friend Kelly, editor at Xterraweb, helped me design a new one. I always thought logos were supposed to be sorta bland, professional symbols. So that was what we made. She gave me exactly what I asked for.
Well we come back to today… My friend who is doing the newsletter Jess Reece comes to me and says… You deserve a logo that expresses the colorful creativity of your soul!
Do you have any idea how that felt? Incredibly freeing. I found myself wondering why I had not designed it already? I love designing graphics.
So I did it. And I love it. Maybe I had to be prodded into it…But I really do love the new logo.
Have you ever been in that position? Tell me about your truth.
So I have been learning about marketing, both myself and my books. It is enough to leave my head swimming. I have been advised to look into Hootsuite to assist with keeping up with social media. Also to start a newsletter. My patreon is going into high gear starting Saturday. You guys see me during the week. I think that 2019 will be a busy year. How is it looking for you?
What do you want to see me address? And where do you think that I should take things?
Also I am considering including a fun game in each of my newsletters (word finds, crossword, etc)… Would you like to play?
I realize I am being lazy here… I will try to get them set in a easier to post format before February. The new year’s day has me bogged down. I apologize.
Want to support me doing art and writing? Want a chance at a handwritten poem or one of my paintings? Join me on Patreon!
This is the last poetry I will be able to list as ©2018. It is always humbling and slightly confusing as each year passes. I think that 2019 has the potential for a lot of good. There is definitely going to be more activity from me on my patreon and here. I have so much to look forward to. What are you looking forward to in 2019?
So my schedule is thrown to the winds from the holidays. I apologize. I will be back on Monday (yes I realize it is New Years Day.) I want to get back on track. 2019 is going to be a busy year for me. I have a childrens book that will release in 2019, At least three poetry volumes will also release. Serena is going to be in an anthology and is hoping for her second book in the zombie series to release. I will be doing more with my art, and updates will be going up on Patreon (pattimouse) about that. Add to that this blog, the possible ezines, and other fun stuff. I will update you as I know dates and such. Thank you for continuing to read my simple blogs.
Also I will be continuing with world building for a couple of weeks. Fridays. Then I will start a series of character building posts. Not sure what I will work on after that.
