Thoughts from Carole
The Bumpy Road to Collaboration is doing well! News will come soon. Good news, so stay tuned! After the last intense months dedicated to completing the book, my new website, AND launching both of them, I felt an urge to go back to creativity and blogging. As always, my dilemma is to consistently blog, while having a full time job, being a parent, a wife, a friend, etc. Writing, drawing and being anxious to post only perfect stuff takes a lot of time, and my previous blog model was too labor-intensive to be regular. I brainstormed with my dear writing coach, Susan Efros, and clarified that this year, as a new challenge to myself, I wanted to develop the art of short comic strips. So I went back to The Chouettes, a series that I created in Sept. 2011.
I love my Chouettes! They are full of human weaknesses and animal wisdom! That’s why I chose them to present my New Year wishes. “Chouette” means “Owl”and also “Cool” in French (there is a cute play on words, but it’s impossible to translate in English). My intention is to post once a week. As always, the themes are about leadership, collaboration, personal growth, parenting, couples, sustainability… all my obsessive stuff! I hope you enjoy this new format (just 4 cartoons per sequence). I do. As usual, let me know your thoughts, leave me comments and, if you like, share with others!
