Wow, hard to believe that this year is almost over. November was a pretty good month for me. I started my fourth Uni class, released my second book and am slowly making progress in my mum’s work room renovation.
My next University class is focussed on digital design, a subject that is very near and dear to my heart. I am taking the time to try and learn as much as I can about Adobe Illustrator and working with different tools and methods to produce a variety of designs. There is always a lot more to learn. I hope to have a post next week, where I talk about my digital design journey (and share some of my noodly early creations haha >p< ).
In case you missed it, I realised my second book, Peaty the Worm. It was a lot of fun to make this book. Blurb recently had a 50% off deal, so I ordered 10 copies of the print version. They will make good gifts for friends with little ones. I would also like to donate a copy to my local school and possibly the library (if they want or accept them). It looks like a November unveiling of a book is starting to be a habit (my first book was Tom and Geraldene, November 2015). It would be great to do a book each year, hopefully I can keep at it!
Lastly, I attempted to take part in NaNoWriMo this year. I didn’t win, but I did write more than I have in a long time. I ended up with about 7k words, which is huge for me. It was the first time I have ever written anything, where I was able to stick to a plotline and go along for the ride. The writing may not be the best thing in the world, but I can always go back and improve it later. I don’t have any plans of sharing what I wrote, because… noodles.
I hope everyone has a great December and end to 2016!
