Of Mice and Owls

Here’s a couple of pages from the children’s book I’m percolating with these days.
The turn around time on this project is whiplash worthy. I have thirty pages due by the end of the month. My novel hasn’t really budged since November 1st. While I watch the world’s writing tallies go off the charts I pull out the Col-Erase and draw me some unruly animals and everything is fine.
Leaving the Barn
It’s kind of killing me to see how great everyone is doing on their novels at NaNoWriMo. I take solace in knowing that I’m working hard crossing so many things off the parchment paper of stuff to do that rolls out of my studio, down the stairs through the door, down the street and across the Brooklyn Bridge as it makes it’s way to Midtown.

The nice thing is that while I’m overwhelmed all the projects I have in the air, all working really means is listening to Ben Folds and drawing animals. Sometimes I even eat chocolate while I do that. So life is good and while things are crazy I’ll just save it for the drawing board.

Who Goes There?

Surviving Ebola‘ may be taking a back burner, but PiBoIdMo is going swimmingly. Don’t forget to stop by Tara’s great motivational blog to kickstart your kid’s book thinking. I hope you’re all finding inspiration while the year dies out your window 😉

I’ll write my novel, and I’ll do it this month, but right now this book is the thing!

listening to right this second: “Narcolepsy” — Ben Folds

Pointer Sisters kinda night🔥 We’ve been ignoring this sweet potato, but he will not be ignored. 🌱☀️🧡🌈
#lifelessons #bloomnomatterwhat Five years ago, I walked into a cozy Brooklyn bar and met the sweetest boy a girl could ever hope to meet. Tonight he made us the sweetest cake to celebrate.❤️ ❤️ I wish today was a Bill Murray kind of Groundhog Day, I’d be in Mexico toasting these love birds. 😭😭😭 #happyanniversary to @happilyeveralvarez & @alvar529 AND happy one year anniversary of New Sister Day to me & @prillie_shakazuzu. We’re so lucky Ashton got us Heather. 😘 High Tea B-Day was at least 1000% better than these pics. 😍💛😭⭐️🍰
#andstillbirthdayweekrageson #letshearitfortheboy #👋☕️ Matt’s Grandfather, passed away peacefully at 93 this week. I am glad for the chance I had to know him. He was great. Matt insanely invited me to a four-generation Father’s Day brunch at his parent’s place when we’d been dating a month and a half. Grandpa Volpe’s first question? He wanted to know my intentions. Here he is at our wedding last year. 💛 He was a true original & he will be so missed. I believe. ❄️✨🎄🎅🏻
#firstsnow #chefwifelife We’ve arrived at my parent’s, where Christmas Spirit is alive & well. What a blessing this ‘Eve has been.🎄✨❄️ #merrychristmas #christmastree #ohchristmastree
