My Greatest Downfall

my mad drawing skills

This is entirely short and entirely too rushed, but it’s been bothering me for days! I think I’m a half-decent writer. I’ve had some tell me I could even be great. Makes me all warm and fuzzy inside, really. But, I’ve run up against something that I can’t write. I can’t write Christmas with all my characters.

And, what’s worse is I can’t draw worth a lick. I used to be able to, but I’m too much of a perfectionist to do it any more. It’s incredibly frustrating, especially when I want to have a cute little blurb on Kira, Rashir, Liam, and Kat all sitting down to a nice Christmas dinner. Or ripping open presents. Or something. It’s a little hard to do, especially since it’s their facial expressions I’m most invisioning…Gah!

So, those of you who possess the talent of drawing, I’m eternally jealous. I can paint a picture with words, but sometimes a picture is WORTH a thousand words. That was never so true as now… Alas, I fail. And I have to run to work.

About S. G. Ricketts

I am a dreamer. This page holds all of the dreams and desires and hopes and wishes of the first of my two dreams: to share my imagination with the world. For those of you who have read a book or written a book, these stories are not merely words on a page. They are living, breathing creatures, worlds so compellingly real that you can smell the sweat and feel the rain. This is what I want to share ...with all of you. Yes, becoming rich and famous would be fabulous. I won't deny that. However, it would be so much more satisfying to see my book in the hands of someone on the bus, hear my book talked about at a restaurant, see a cluster of fan-art. I want to inspire the mind to imagine different worlds and different situations. If I can achieve that, I will have achieved my dream.
