2010 Creative Goals Simplified

Aside from the usual be organized, prosperous, productive, prolific, creative - And how I plan to do all this in a routine & balanced manner. Specifically I want to:

• Finish my mid grade Mystery Manuscript/art & Sub
• Bunny & Bear Picturebook Manuscript/dummy & Sub.
• Create proposals /sub to other markets.
• Create mid grade/YA illustration portfolio samples: jacket & interior art. - approach these markets
• 3 Mass Postcard Mailings: 1 - Jan/feb_, 2 - before May8!_, 3 - Aug/sept_
Greetingcarduniverse: Reach 1000 cards in store mark (Ended 2009 with 505 cards in store. This was 1 of my few bright spots last year. Hope it continues to improve and shine in 2010)

Must Keep mind and all 4 limbs in motion and moving towards the finish line! In 2009, I felt like I was stuck in a hamster wheel! Sure I was very busy - but most paths seemed to deadend. Must break free of the wheel!

Heres to the path that leads not only to success but to great happiness and confidence that comes from knowing you have done your best and been truly appreciated for that effort.

I have felt like a hamster all of my life but when I looked back I realized I had finished many finish lines within the wheel. I like your fighting artistic spirit and my only wish is that you could bottle it up and I could buy some. I love your art work, and if I had a child I would buy a picture and hang it on her or his wall. We grow from your lightness. All the best, Brian Ragsdale, www.brianragsdalestudio.com
