Have the Courage

I did this piece about 6 months ago when I first decided to get my head out of my ass and start being creative again. Then I closed that journal, put it down somewhere, and promptly forgot its existence.

The reason I'm posting it now is that I found it the other day, after I started revamping the website. You ever have that moment when you come across something at just the right time, right when you need to see it? That's kind of what happened here. I was going through some old stuff, and came across this picture.

And it was the perfect moment for me to see it.

I needed to see it, because I've spent the better part of the last few months kind of hating myself. Because I didn't have the courage and I made all kinds of excuses as to why I couldn't do the stuff I'd planned.

This piece is still not done. I wanted to import it into Illustrator and clean up the pen and pencil marks left behind. I might take the 2017 off and just do the "Have the Courage" part. Print it out and hang it somewhere I can always see it.

In the meantime, it's time for me to get to writing. I'm working on this really awesome old darkish urban fantasy I abandoned years ago. It's not the military romances that I'm known for, but I think that people would enjoy it just as much since it's still my work.

And that's sort of the point of me retooling this website, and bringing in the idea of the Bright Idea Creative. So anytime I have a bright idea, I can feel good about pursuing it, and not feel guilty because there's a million other things that people expect from me first.

So, anyway, this is my share for the moment. If you like, let me know in the comments what you'd like to see from me here, or what you think in general about the new website or whatever else you want to say.

And if you like my work, please click one of the little share buttons and let someone else know about it. That's the best thing you can do for me and I'd super appreciate it.
