So, one of the reasons I started my patreon back in November was to stoke my creative engine.
It is so working.
This morning I set up a poll over at the patreon for patrons to pick from 1 of 3 options this month for the second of two fiction projects I'll be putting out this month. My new novel is moving along nicely, and I've got neurons firing in so many different directions. I've got some old characters doing new things, and new characters exploring brand new areas I've not written about before.
Plus, I use the amazing art my illustrator Jenn does, and the narration that Suzie Jenkins and I do, to make these sort of Reading Rainbow style movies now.
On top of all that, the creativity is bleeding over into other areas of my life. I'm feeling reinvigorated in the coding I'm doing for my side business. New projects I'm about to embark on in my day job are exciting and invigorating to me. We've begun recording the Big Little Podcast again on a more regular schedule.
I feel so very, very ON.
This morning I was up 15 minutes before my alarm clock, thinking about all the irons I have in the fire, not overwhelmed by it, but stirred up. I love being a creative person. I love connecting with that urge to make new things. It's a vital, valuable part of my life.
I'm so grateful.
