I just read a great article by Austin Kleon. I absolutely love the idea of sharing your process with the world. I am one of those people who want to know the little details of what went into creating whatever is being created. We often dismiss the little things and only focus on the big (like the end product) as if that is the most important thing to come out of it, but really it is the process that is most important. The product is just a mere representation of what the process produced. To me, the process is the real treasure. It is the part of the story that is going to be the most raw and genuine.

A couple years ago I wrote a children’s book. I found myself an illustrator(a friend) and I made a plan on how I was going to promote my book. I absolutely did not want my posts to be all about “Buy my book!” instead I wanted to share the behind the scenes of what went into creating it. I wanted to share my experience raw and unfiltered so that others could distantly live that part of my life along side me. I never did publish it and it still remains remains to be illustrated. But maybe with what I am learning in my courses, I can someday finish what I started and make it better than the original plan.
