It’s so strange to go from frantically drawing and updating my social media with daily pictures during Inktober to just writing and trying to meet my daily word goal for Nanowrimo, but I swear I really am still working on the artwork too. Albeit at a snails pace, but I’m still at it!
My Nanowrimo project is chugging along as well. I intend it to be a middle grade novel (for kids 8-13) but I’ve never written MG before and need to keep checking it to be sure it doesn’t stray too far toward the Young Adult or Chapter Book categories. I’m planning to include a few black and white illustrations, maybe more or less depending on publisher preference.
It’s about a young girl who returns to her hometown after an emergency storm evacuation and finds a mermaid who was washed inland and stranded by the floodwaters.
Now if only someone would pay me to write it! lol
