It’s SCBWI. That’s the Children’s book society or what have you that I was referred to a couple days ago. One of my patrons at the show encouraged me to become a member. Now I am. A year’s dues is $85. There’s a ton of info on the site. I was lost in the research this morning. Grants, links, networking; it’s all a bit much. I am overwhelmed and still trying to figure out how to make it work; how to make my membership investment worth my while. I’ll get back into the dizzying research in a moment.
I’m confident I have my next show booked. There’s a juried process I need to get past, first. I’m feeling confident I will. I’m making plans for December. I’ll tell y’all more about it a little later. You know, cause I’m superstitious and don’t want to jinx it. It’s not a huge affair. It’s a few hours and, if things go well, a few hundred bucks. The addition to my resume doesn’t hurt and the exposure is nice, too.
I am getting confused on whether I wanna draw or whether I wanna do the business end of the art. I guess it’s all connected and doesn’t matter so much, does it? Either way will move me forward. I have to-do lists scribbled and a gnawing want to earn some income and get some recognition. I suppose a little each day accumulates. So let’s do that, just a little each day.
