School’s Back.

Posted by Nette on Jan 29, 2009 in Uncategorized

This may or may not be the worst week of your life. It means the end of late nights and sleeping in and lunch in all sorts of places and at different times. It means new teachers, new friends and trying to fit back into schools after a summer of bare feet and open sandals.

It also means that I have to get back to work as well. My new novel is sitting here waiting for me to finish it and my newest work, that isn’t begun yet, is waiting for me to master some new art skills so I can do some of my own illustrating.  I think this is one of the most remarkable things about being a kid – you do the most amazing art work. I can remember one girl in my school used to illustrate her homework. She’d make up a sentence with her spelling words (to kill the boredom I guess) and then she’d illustrate it. One sentence was about a circus – I can still see her ringmaster in his red coat with a whip in his hand and a lion with its mouth open. Fabulous.

My drawings are all going to be of rats! So, please, if you have any good rat sites or photos or drawings that you think will help me get my newest character off to a good start, I could certainly use your help.

Oh, and I just read the story of the Lady Of Shallot – wow, this is pretty neat…its a poem by  Tennyson and it is pretty well explained at www.pathguy.com/shalott.htm. If you’re looking for a story about The Knights of the Round Table and Lancelot and Camelot and all that, have a look. And its one of my favourite paintings as well.

So, back to work for all of us. Me to my computer and my novel and my newest novel and bilbies (who are waiting to meet me – and I’ll tell you all about this just as soon as it happens) and you….back to school and shoes and some pretty interesting stuff that’s waiting there.

Till next week,

Nette Hilton.
