Valaneth: Dragon Queen's Quest

Valaneth: Dragon Queen's Quest

Valaneth, the youngest Dragon Queen to inherit the title,
has elevated napping and tea time to an art form,
but being a leader still escapes her.
Will it take a cat to teach her the meaning of responsibility?
Or will the pull of nap time be too great?

Get out of my HEAD!!!

Get out of my HEAD!!!

Ok, so now that I've survived the massive storm, I'm gonna put my head down and start seriously racing toward the finish line for this comic. I spend too much time on social media, mainly to get a little news mixed with awesome stuff cool people are doing. In the process I wind up internalizing a bunch of stuff that has been making me super, super self conscious about this project. Sometimes I have a real ego problem.

I have years of ridiculous Southern Belle baggage that I'm constantly trying to jettison. An awful lot of my upbringing was centered in the idea that while I needed to be an intelligent, go getter who did amazing things that I would also sacrifice anything for my kids and subsume my ego to my (obviously) male partner. This has left me having to work super hard to carve out the brain space to be selfish enough to do my own projects. Mixed messages much?

So, here I am trying to be as confident as the average art creator to get through this starting thing. I'm pretty sure once I really get started, I won't stop, but until then there are always too many things sitting in my brain ready to stop me dead. I also have three kids and broken down house, those help with the stopping, too.

I know it's cool for the kids to say "She Persisted" but I prefer "I'm gonna do it anyway."
