Thank you so much Desiree'!

What a kind message. I really appreciate it!  :D

You have the right idea in trying not to compare. If it helps, it is a very natural response to feel envious of others' work. I do as well from time to time, but I just sit with that feeling for a little bit and then really channel it into pure admiration for what others can achieve. And I let it become inspiration to practice more and not let myself become lazy in my study.

It can be frustrating when we can see beautiful work, want to produce it as well, and then feel disappointed in our progress. But here is another bonus of calligraphy - the practice of patience. So I always remind learners to take it slow, embrace each day of learning and practice, and not rush through it to an end goal. The accomplishment of practice can be just as rewarding as the "finished" results. One day you'll finish with your practice, look at your work, and think, "YES! There it is."  :)

Thanks again Desiree' for your message. It made my day.  :)

This is wonderful Erica! Even though this is still so new, and I'm sure you're still working out the details, but will it be available in print only, or online as well? Will you be accepting submissions from all levels of skill? :)

LOL Joi! You have to stay on your toes at my house!  ;D

Starlee and Natasha, it will be both print and online PDF. I am still working out the details for the print - it will either be via HP print to order or printed by a local publishing company and shipped.

Daisy - I laughed at that thread! I actually did think of you when I was finishing the D!  ;D

Thanks so much everyone! I am so excited. It is really a passion and dream of mine so to see it actually happening is a bit surreal. Just knowing you are all behind me gives me so much more confidence! I truly appreciate each and every one of your comments!  ;D :-*

Schin - excited to hear members of your guild were talking about it!  :)
