What a day. I have spent nearly 8 hours dedicated to illustrating and formatting “The Jade Serpent.” It feels so good to be so close.
Koen, the seven year old protagonist in the story, is the artist. I simply place his drawings in the book. Here is one of his latest:
Hi All – just a quick shout-out to tell you about a beautiful place in Oregon where you can let all your creative juices over-flow.
Check out The Clyde Rice estate – it is a 10 acre, gorgeous place on the Clackamas River in Oregon – just 15 miles from Portland. Has three bedrooms and lots of space to be creative – and super cheap to rent. Think workshop space, brainstorming sessions, private pondering, exquisite landscapes to paint and write about. It is idyllic, serene and cozy.

As the end of my school year ends at Gallup Middle School and summer looms, I look forward to the long sunny days to draw and write. For now, a few quick sketches to keep The Jade Serpent swirling around my brain.
The Jade Serpent, book two of the Treasure Chest Mysteries is finished. Well, the first draft is at least. 🙂 I am so excited to have it outside of my head and ready to begin polishing.
I am now giving the adventure a rest while I concentrate on the story board drawings. In a week or so, I’ll revisit and start the editing process using The Plot Whisperer Workbook and Autocrit.
For now, looking forward to expressing creativity in a different medium for awhile. I’m playing with water color, acrylics, colored pencils and…this coming weekend…pastels. Fun.
Happy creating everyone!
