Hello friends :)
Hope you are having a good week so far and life is treating you well....?
And if not, I hope next week is a better one ^-^
Just to let you know...
I am going to be a little busy for the next 6 weeks.
The reason...*drum roll* please...? Ahhh who am i kidding...this is just blogger.com! Hehe ;)
Well... here it goes...
I have signed up for a course at uni. The course is called: Children's Book Illustrations.
And let me tell you, that I am VERY EXCITED AND VERY PASSIONATE ABOUT IT!!! though a little nervous...oh ok quite nervous... EEEK!
As apart from going through school and one other course, in my lifetime- which I did over 10 years ago. Eeek! lol
I really haven't the faintness idea...how I'll get into the 'study ethics' thingy mi-jig' AGAIN?!!
Ahhhh...It's been sooo looong...!! Oh well...guess I better start LEARNING fast...if I want to get something on 'paper'!!! ;) Lol
Anyway moving on...
I believe this will be a very valuable tool- perhaps even a key...when trying to create my very first children's novel! :)
You see...I have hit a stumbling block with my illustrations for this novel.
My illustrations are alright...though lots can be worked and improved on :)
So...here is the crux of the matter...I HAVE NEVER DONE A STORYBOARD before, to put down all my creative illustrations into actions on paper...thought in this case a STORYBOARD is JUST WHAT I NEED!!! YAY! HAPPY DAYS!! lol
In fact...this course will help me to described things better within my text-e story!! ;)
*SIGH* So that's where I went wrong?!! :/ :) Haha! Well...now I know, how to go around my stumbling block! Hehe :) Yes I think an applause is needed...just kidding! Haha!
So this course is the kick start I needed, for my very first children's novel.
What the course entails is, storyboarding and then getting a dummy mock up of how you want to present it to the publishers! So...I am very excited and happy to have found this sweet little course- it's just what I need!! :)
Well it's getting late over here...
Though before I go...someone gave me this verse. So I will leave it with you today...Psalms 91:1. Enjoy! :)
I know I felt encouraged by it ;)
Until I write again...
