Silence is Good

My lack of recent posts disturbs me. From the outside, it probably looks like I'm not working or not focused. The truth is that I'm spending every spare moment working on The Chapel. I have been revising and revising and revising. I'm still in the middle of it, but I haven't reached the point where I think I'm doing more harm than good. So my point is - don't worry. Silence, in this case, is a good thing. It means The Chapel will be ready sometime soon.

To keep you entertained as you patiently await the release of Book Two, I have decided to share a video that I showed my kids a few weeks ago. They love to draw, and last year they both checked out Ed Emberley's books from the library multiple times to practice his techniques. Something about his drawings attracted them, and me, and I had to click the video when I saw this post by Austin Kleon.

What I love the most about his story is that he had an entirely different vision of success when he started. But as he learned, sometimes those visions must change, and you won't know how they should change unless you keep moving forward. Keep working. Keep producing. Keep trying. On that note, back to work I go...
