I feel like my life is an ongoing learning curve that occasionally does huge leaps – kind of like my blog stats on days that Jill Badonsky stops by. Creating sculptural illustrations that would become a book was a challenge, but who knew the process of getting the book ready for publishing was such a challenge too? Seriously, there are a billion options and ways to produce a book from photos of Clay Illustrations. My wise and kind and very resourceful photographer and self-publishing expert, William McAusland, ( http://www.mcauslandstudios.com ) shared this with me: “One thing I have heard from successful creative people is to keep in mind that “The Perfect is the enemy of the Done.”
Ya, I know that. I help people all the time to know that. Perfectionism can sometimes stop a creative being from ever creating. But it was a brilliant reminder on William’s part – because now the book is DONE. Yay! Well, one more run by my daughter – who, with her Masters in Communication Design, is the best editor I could even imagine.. then it’s off for publishing. Phew.
