I was proud of my picture. I am not gifted in the drawing department. Normally when I draw something, there is a high probability you will not be able to figure out what it’s a picture of when I am done with it. But this is Batman! I copied it by looking at a Batman picture on the front cover of one of my son’s coloring books.
Did I mention I am sort of pleased with my picture? I put it on the kitchen table for my husband to see when he arrived home from work yesterday. He was proud of me too. I could tell. I know he really wished he’d had one of those Good Job stickers to put in the corner of the paper. I was tempted to hang my masterpiece on my refrigerator but I restrained myself.
I have bigger plans for my picture. Batman is going on a road trip! I’ve decided to take him to the She Speaks Writer’s Conference with me on Thursday. And, anytime my mind begins to ask myself that self doubt question…what are YOU doing here? I am going to look at my Batman picture and respond…because I AM an artist. I AM a writer.
I will not be bringing a book proposal. I will not have a one-sheet. I will not be meeting with a publisher. Nope. But, I am planning on bringing a professional looking notebook so I can take lots of notes. I thought a professional looking notebook would look a little more sophisticated than the napkins and pieces of scratch paper I usually write my thoughts on.
I don’t have any expectations as I head off to the conference except to learn as much as I can about my craft and my passion. I would appreciate your prayers for each of the ladies going this year. Please pray that the Lord will open our hearts and our minds to anything He desires to teach us!
