I’ve Got My Ambitious Boots On!

In case you didn’t know (which I am sure you didn’t, because I just decided this myself) I have put on my Ambitious Boots.

BootsNo, they are not the sexiest things, not to say that my goal is to be sexy, but I would also like to make it known that I am not fashion-challenged either. That being said, I have on my boots.

Although the boots are more theoretical and not literal, the reason I have donned them remains the same. I have decided to challenge myself in a SUPER way. Honestly, I have whined quite a bit over the fact that it has nearly been a complete year, and Ascension Graveyard’s first draft is STILL. NOT. FINISHED! It absolutely grates my nerves even though I know art needs time.

I am fiddling with cover ideas...this is my recent attempt.
I am fiddling with cover ideas…this is my recent attempt. I am still not sure what direction I want to go..this way or the other way next door, or some complete opposite way once the story is finished. Choices, choices.

Having the knowledge doesn’t make me feel any better, but at least I am not feeling worst. Actually, I feel…AMBITIOUS! So ambitious that I have already planned my next few novels. (One is a modern day Clean Read Romance! WHAT?! Who would have thunk it? Me, because I am ambitious and not afraid to veer out of my comfort zone.)

My goal is to not only complete this extremely large painting of Bobbie Gentry (It’s 3×5 feet, mind you I am 5’4…A giant among men and women, really) BUT I want to also complete Ascension Graveyard’s writing, in its entirety by this Friday.

Can I do it? Well, I am a firm believer all things are possible to him who believes and through Christ who gives me strength. It just means that I might…big emphasis on might, be doing more musing and less freewriting this week.

Do remember that this is a first draft. I already have my “quilting” plan, highlighter and pen, set and ready to go for the revisions and rewriting process of this novel. But I have to finish it before I go down that road.

So wish me luck, ya’ll. I have a lot of mud-stomping to do from here until Friday!

Cheers!

    1. Thank you loads! I am kind of leaning towards that too. But I am also considering hiring someone to do a cover for me as well. I did get my degree in Advertising and Graphic Design, but I recognize that I am not the best there is and that sometimes an unbiased eye is the best for things like this. We will see what happens after revisions and rewriting…I have a lot of things to move about in that story. But it has greater potential than what it is showing at the moment.
