The Month That Was: November 2015
In November 2015, I started study and finished my first children’s book.
I have been busy in November with finding my study groove. I am only a part time student doing one unit at a time and right now that suits me perfectly. I submitted my first assignment last week and look forward to feedback. The current unit I am studying is based on 20th Century Design, and I am discovering how much I didn’t understand about it. I also got the final printed version of my book (Tom and Geraldene) and I am really happy with it. 😃
Wow, November is already here. That means Christmas is almost here and I need to think about what design to make for holiday inspired cards. I think I might create two designs. One cute and the other a little bit simple/indie/hipster/pretty/girly (is that a thing?). I also must have these printed not the week before Christmas….
Another cool thing happened. The photograph I entered into the competition on deviantART was selected as one of the semi-finalists! I am really chuffed that I did make the semi-finalist list. I don’t think I will place in the top three, but that doesn’t matter because being a semi-finalist is a big honour to me. It was also one of the few times I have tried to enter a creative competition, maybe I should look for more photography competitions either local or Australian wide?
If you like to write, November also means something a little special. National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo). Write 50,000 words in one month and have yourself a novel! I have been trying at this for years and have never reached the 50,000 word mark, but it has been good (and sometimes frustrating) as a creative challenge. If you are also taking part you can follow my profile kyabean.
Lastly, my friend Claire created a blog. ALL THE STALKS? ;D
