My gallery shop is live as of November 2, 2015. I will be adding paintings daily. This is both thrilling and terrifying. I have accumulated a large inventory of paintings over the last decade it’s been since I’ve had a studio gallery to display and sell my work. I’ve participated in shows over the years, however traditionally an art show will only take one or two entries, so I have a lot of work crowding the walls of my in-home gallery. I’m excited to be able to share my work in an online gallery, and find new homes for it. Subscribe to my newsletter for exclusive coupons.
This month I will be participating in NaNoWriMo, which stands for National Novel Writing Month. This is an annual online event where participants commit to write a novel in one month. I will be using this month to write my rough draft for book three in a mythological fantasy series which I am currently working on. I hope to have book one published in 2016.
I am also working on a short non-fiction book: Why You Should Be An Artist Even If You Can’t Draw: 12 key principles to empower your creativity and improve your life. I believe there are two groups of people, those who are creative and those who believe the lie that they’re not. My endeavor in this work is to encourage and empower those who don’t believe they are creative simply because they haven’t developed traditionally creative skills like drawing. I wish to show that there is much more to creativity than simply drawing, and indeed drawing skills are not imperative to creativity. This book is in the editing stages. I will be looking for beta readers for this project which will include access to the pre-publication manuscript, but under the obligation to read within a set time frame and provide necessary feedback prior to publication. If you are interested in participating, you may email me at norma-sue(at)hotmail(dot)com.
I have a lot to keep me busy this month. What creative pursuits are you working on?
