I was going to write this when I reached 2000 followers, but nobody has achieved anything by waiting till “the right moment”.
So, here we go!
I have close to 150 posts on my blog and most of them are illustrations.
The comments have been heart warming, so thank you all for that!
I am happy if I can put a smile on your face!
For a while I have been toying with the idea to make a book featuring them.
But… writing is not really my thing.
But it might be yours!
So if you have a look on my website and find one or more drawings that inspire you to write a short story or poem, please send it to me.
Once we have enough stories to fill a book (26 pages at least) I can self publish it on Amazon.
And then we can stare it with the world!
So, here are some ground rules to get you started:
- The text should be in English.
English is not my first language and I am not an editor, so please make sure there are no grammar or spelling errors.
- The story or poem should not be longer than 2 pages
- It should be suitable for children.
I would like to stay away from any heavy topics.
- It should be based on one of my drawings on my blog.
You can request any smaller changes of course.
- I don’t often draw humans, but if you choose a drawing with a human in it and would like to see a different race, I am happy to give it my best.
- If it is not for you, but you know someone who would like to participate in this, they are more than welcome.
Feel free to spread the word!
- Self publishing most likely won’t make any of us rich, but if we end up with a significant profit, the money will be equally divided.
- I will keep a log of the drawing that are already chosen here: Drawings already chosen
Too often I have encouraged people to take the step towards self publishing, but for some reason (probably a good reason) they never have.
So, let me take care of that entire process and you do what you are best at: WRITING! 🙂
