Welcome To My World
This is my first ever blog post - boy, am I nervous. First and foremost: please bear with me as I fling myself on your mercy. A confession: I am a hapless, often hopeless techno-incompetent so believe me when I tell you that my creation of a blog is a total leap of faith and complete surprise to me. I mean, talk about throwing caution to the winds. I don't even know if the design I've chosen will work out. Okay, having said that, I promise to do my best, at least, not to mess things up and/or bore you to tears. But I can't promise that things won't be a bit clunky around here while I get my bearings.
Though I'm showing a link to my agents' website, what this blog will not be: Not my art blog. That's something I'll be setting up in the near future to feature my illustration and painting. (I've been an illustrator for over thirty years and am currently re-doing my portfolio - branching off in a new direction.) This blog is my attempt to get a toe wet in the water - so to speak. My daughter's advice: Ma, get some kind of blog up and running and if you like it, then do the art blog. Okay, so that's what I'm doing. A 'talking' blog supposedly being less complicated than an art blog - that's our thinking anyway.
This blog will be all about the things that personally interest me, book-wise, art-wise, design-wise, life-wise and if I can convey my enthusiasm and draw you in to share it with me, then my work here will be done. At least for the moment.
Warning: Esoteric inclinations straight ahead.
