2019 in a (Crab)shell...


I've been seeing a lot of year end posts, and even though I've been a little lax with the blog (okay, a lot lax), I thought it would be fun to write one too. But... since trying to squeeze a year's worth of happenings into a single post seems a bit overwhelming, I think I'll end the year with an update that circles back to where it began:

At the beginning of 2019, I had just created Crab...


I continued to play with, and develop, his character...


And, as I wrote and revised his story, his personality started to come through...


I ended up setting his story aside for a little while to work on other projects, but then in July I decided to revisit his story and apply for the #PBChat mentorship program...


Crab caught the attention of the amazing Brian Lies, and over the next few months Brian helped me polish my dummy.


Crab and I have been on an incredible journey this year. As I wait to see what's next for us, I'm looking forward to starting the new year with new ideas...


First up... Storystorm 2020!

  3. OOOOOOH!
    I have just finished writing 26 4-line poems for an A to Z fish story. Too much fun! It's nice to hear from you. Every so often I see Emily's Avocado logo and it makes me smile.
