Good morning! I had to drag myself out of bed this morning and I almost talked myself into going back to bed once I was up! Especially when I got on the scale and saw the same number that was there yesterday which is essentially the same number that’s been there for the past three months.I really don’t seem to be progressing, but just as I've been doing since January, I'll keep at it.

What else? As much as I want to obtain my business license and my fictitious business name, I have to be honest and look at the facts- I do not have a single piece of artwork that can be scanned in to create a print. Not one. I have 87 index cards and many of them are adorable, but I definitely have a lot to do before they can be something marketable.
I think when I complete my 100 day index-card-a-day challenge, I’ll transition to completing an illustration everyday. First I’ll finish Inktober and then I’ll move directly into November where the daily illustration will not be part of a prompt list or someone else’s challenge.
Once I have some actual pieces to sell, then maybe I can look at a business license! Spending almost $200 when I have nothing to sell doesn’t make any sense at all. I am just so eager to move along this journey and feel like I’m ready to something happen.

I need to take a minute or two to enjoy the process and reflect on where I’ve been. 87 days ago I drew sometimes, I lettered sometimes, I crafted sometimes. That was all fun, but it felt very directionless. Now, I feel restored to my first love- drawing. The thing I did the most of when I was a girl. I am excited to get better at it, but I have to face the fact that I am nowhere near ready to make any money doing it.
Not just yet...
