I haven’t blogged for a while. Life just gets crazy sometimes. When you have an chronic illness it can run your life. It makes the good days seem like gifts. So moving forward one day at a time, I’ve been busy drawing pages for Jay’s story. It’s taking much longer then I thought. Since my art classes I’ve become so picky. My drawings are always on my mind. I am over half way done the drawings. I’m so nervous about the colouring part. I’m trying a new medium (soft pastels) all my practice sheets seem fabulous but I have this recurring nightmare that I’ll smudge all the pages and have to start over. I am my worst critic. I’m so excited to share Jay’s story. It’s one of my long time FAVOURITE stories that I’ve ever told to the children.
I have named my next story, it’s called Tumble Anna to the Rescue. Along side of Jay’s story, Anna’s story shares a section of my brain. Anna and all my stories characters share many of my personality traits. From feelings of fear, bravery, courage, determination and trying to fit in and be my best me. Or we also call it ‘Life’.
October update: Jay the Jet Seed is now completed!
Dawn Guenette says:
Jay the Jet Seed along with Leila’s Journey are the books my littlest friends ask for. What shall I bring next time I ask. It’s always the same answer… ‘that leaf book’. My little charge Eden will ‘read’ it herself now- first thing she does… true story. There are so many little life lessons to glean from the story within. I’m so proud to know the author.

Dawn your pre-school was my first experience and inspired me to choose a Childcare career. I loved watching you work with the children and seeing the excitement in the children’s eyes. The things you were presenting, teaching, reading or singing to them, was so impressive and imaginative. Something inside of me ignited and I knew this was the career I was meant to explore. When I hear these comments from you it means the world to me. Thank you for being my mentor, substitute, co-worker and friend.
