Where I've Been, Where i'm At, and Where I'm Going...:)


Blog Posted:2/21/2009 6:30:00 AM
<P>Hey there, Souper-naughts! So, I guess I should have done this sooner, as some of you have been asking where I've been. Thanks for thinking of me, first of all, and second of all - I miss you guys!</P> <P>I have been crazy busy, and have WAY too many projects going at once. Some of you may know, I write children's books, as well as poetry, but a couple of weeks ago, I decided to try my hand at illustrating my latest one, and it is proving to be quite time consuming! For me, poetry is like breathing, but I had no idea how much time it takes to sketch, outline, print, color, etc...wow, crazy!</P> <P>PLUS, about 10 days ago, or so, I began writing a poem...and just kept writing. :) Yup, looks like i'm now writing my first novel. I've been wanting to do this for a while now, and this is the time, It seems. </P> <P>So, add my 5 small ones and a husband to the list, and you have 1 girl who has zero time for poetry and souping. I'm sorry!!!</P> <P>After this book is illustrated, I should have more time - I hope!</P> <P>Anyway, this is where i've been, and I'm sorry for not being around.</P> <P>Wish me luck, you have no idea how much I love you guys, and how you've helped me - without the soup, this would not be happenening right now. </P> <P>XOXO love to you all,</P> <P>Kristin</P>

    Wow, you do have a lot going on. Great writers such as yourself need no luck as they have skill so I will say, "Congratulations!" I also wanted to say "Thank you" to you for being such an inspiration to so many. You remind me that hard work does pay off and is well worth the time and effort we put in. All my best to you.

    OH I miss you so much, my PSoup friend. I miss reading your words every morning. I am very excited for you about your novel and your childrens book but no one is surprised, I am sure, because your talent is amazing and you are one who is "going places" and we all know it. Love and lots of hugs to my aquarius friend. Love christie

    So that's it, a novel and illustrating, children's books. I love all of these, but have little art ability. I have written a dozen novels or so and know how much fun writing a novel can be...You get lost for great lengths of time, which isn't so bad. Luck with everything, Kristin, but leave a little time for a poem now and then. Love, daver
