Starting close to home, I've chosen my own extraordinary cat as the subject of my first painting for the 2014 Petburbia Project. I'll paint a new pet every week for a year, and it seems Booker is mostly OK with the idea.
Paint and post a new pet picture for every week of 2014. Ambitious or crazy? Ask me in April.
Submit my middle grade novel to at least 20 great editors/agents.
A Loft Literary Center advanced writing class started me on this journey and I've had some wonderful people helping me edit the story. 2014 is the year to push the novel from the nest and see if it soars into the hearts of any publishing professionals.
