The fact that my sales doubled this year is very motivating but nervousness sets in quickly. Can I do it again or will this year be a dud? I take a deep breath and remind myself... I do it for the pleasure of it, sales are just a bonus.
I always build some kind of self improvement into my new schedule. This year I've returned to my books on drawing that I started working through last January. I kept it up until May before it got dropped in the rush of busyness. I can see by this first practice drawing that my skills have rusted since then... but I will persist.
It's supposed to be an onion.
