PROJECT UPDATES

Using ME diagrams for plotting

Using ME diagrams for plotting

~ Using ME Diagrams for Plotting ~

I thrive on learning new things, and I am currently applying my creative process, introduced in my book My Six-Year-Old Inner Artist, Everybody has one! to writing my first novel. As an artist, I find anything I can design visually, works best. Using a variation on bubble diagrams, I’ve been developing my plot, characters, relationships and action arc with ME diagrams.

~ Death on Devil’s Mountain ~

An American Southwest paranormal murder mystery ~ California May, recently retired and widowed, is searching for anything to help her feel strong, confident, or even relevant again. During one of the worst monsoons of the season, she experiences the inexplicable – a horrifying yet pleading manifestation of the brooding desert mountain behind her house. Just as she begins to think her overwhelming grief and feelings of obsolescence have pushed her over the edge of sanity, she awakes one morning to a dead body, washed up on the concrete shore of the dark ribbon of water in the canal adjacent to her property.

Two New Workbooks from Wendy Wickham Fallon

Beginning Drawing for Adults Who Think They Can’t

An Introduction to Drawing

The first goal of this Workbook is to teach you to draw. It includes the following basic concepts that should be a part of any beginning drawing class.

  1. Gesture Drawing
  2. Straight Lines and Curves
  3. Simple Shapes
  4. Drawing Complex Objects Using Simple Shapes

Encouraging Creativity & Self-Confidence

Learning the basics of hand drawing, however, is not the most important goal of this Workbook. The foremost function of this class is to provide you with step-by-step exercises that encourage you to exercise your right brain. In doing so, you should be able to loosen up and relax about your own perceived lack of skill or training, and encourage self-confidence in what is possible for you to accomplish in your own life.

Drawing the American Southwest

How to draw the Animals & Cacti of the Arizona-Sonora Desert.

I’ll keep you posted about my progress with each of these Workbooks. I’m also writing an American Southwest Paranormal Murder Mystery! Stay tuned, and thank you for reading.
