I’m kicking off the final week of Creature Coloring Sheets with a sneak preview of a picture book project I’ve been working on for the last couple months. It’s in the early stages, relatively speaking. I don’t have an agent, a publisher, or even a release date. But, I think it’s good and funny…and I think kids will like it.
The project has been a leap of faith because spending so much time and energy on something you care about, with no guarantee of success, is a challenge at best. But, isn’t the true success finding something to actually care about?
It’s so easy to get distracted by how long something takes, or the self doubt, or the excuses. It happens to me all the time. But those distractions are created by the mind. They don’t actually exist. When we believe in something, those things don’t matter. They can’t matter.
What matters is sharing something you love with others.
