I Am Doing It? I AM Doing It.

I have not yet finished my A to Z book.  I am stalling.  Procrastinating.  Scared.  One of those things or a combination.
But now that's okay. I can continue to procrastinate and work through my scared on that one because, instead, I have taken a baby step with my Musicful poem becoming a picture book.  I am proceeding. I am making a final decision on the press. I am about to push the button to get my ISBNs and bar code.
I have an illustrator.
I am making time.
I-yi-yi.
Preparations.
Process.
Pondering.
Proceeding.
Press.
Push.
Pictures.
Palpitations.
I have to get a cup of coffee.
I am editing and revising today.
And making cookies to take a break.
I am going to need cookies.
Coffee + Cookies + Courage + Commitment = Completion.
.......ok.  Got the coffee... where's the flour?

  1. When I get closer to where you are, I'll be doing the exact same thing. Except for making cookies. (I don't bake). Baby steps seems like a good way to go.

    Hang in there!

  2. Hurrah for you, Donna. I hope you can take those final, final steps! Isn't one copy going to a grandson? Remember that!

    1. It's helping, I think, that #1 I've had some encouragement and similar type comments about the poem, and #2 I have a friend who can illustrate who could benefit from the exposure, too. And yes, actually I'll need two copies...grandson and April baby! It's a success already, even if I have to buy them all! Ha!
