Storyteller's Journey

Three Buds a Blooming

With the onset of spring just around the corner, and with the start of something new for me as a writer, this photo seemed appropriate for my post.

The three buds also represent the three concurrent projects I have on my plate, in addition to my writing. Here's what's keeping me busy:

1- As I mentioned last week, the publication of my children's book.

By Victoria Lindstrom - Paintings by Michael Lindstrom
(This is one of FIVE dummy books I've made for The Scandinavian Santa. My publisher and graphic designer are presently using another copy - as well as high resolution images - to begin the work of formatting my book.

Thankfully, it will be available in hardcover w/dust jacket, and will also be available in electronic copies from Amazon, B & N, & Apple - yeah!)

2- It has become apparent to me of my definite need for a professional website. I always thought a website was something I didn't need to worry about until later. Well, later is here. (I plan on blogging more about my thoughts on websites in the near future.)

3- In preparation for my professional website, Michael and I are having a video made of the two of us discussing our creative collaboration in the making of The Scandinavian Santa. Thankfully, that is several weeks off, but still, something to be scripting.

When I thought of blogging about my "three-pronged" work load, I actually thought of the three-headed dog in J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter - The Sorcerer's Stone. (Maybe that's a subliminal message for how the stress of all this is affecting me!) In any event, it's a good time to take a blogging break for a couple of weeks.

I'll see you back on Writ of Whimsy in early April. I'm planning to visit my parents in Arizona next week for my dad's eightieth birthday.


  1. Congratulations on the coming publication of your book. The cover is beautiful. Looking forward to reading your thoughts on websites.

    1. Thanks, Elizabeth. There is SO much to be considered when having a website designed. I look forward to sharing my thoughts on that subject soon.

      Have an awesome weekend!

  2. Oh my gosh, see what happens when I take a little blogging break - I miss your amazing news! Okay, now I'm going to poke around to see what I missed, but it sounds like congratulations are in order. CONGRATS, VICTORIA!!

    1. Thanks, Ruth. It seems I've entered into a new leg of my storyteller's journey. Have a wonderful week!
