Why Can't I Self-Motivate? 

It seems like I've been sitting on a book for a long time now. The first book did took 3 years to complete, but "Dragonfly" was created in only a few months. I'm really excited about the ideas I have, and the beginning stages of some of the other works I've begun. 

But lately, I'm really lacking in motivation. And failing mostly in self-motivation...

Why Pig and Penguin? 

The inspiration from Pig and Penguin actually comes from my daughter, Sophia, and her friend, Grace. Sophia's favorite animal is the pig, and Grace loves penguins. Over the years, Sophia and Grace have become very close, and I thought about how interesting it was that even though they are both very different people, they have this connection that has brought them together as good friends. What could be more opposite than pigs and penguins, right? The story actually started off comparing how different the…
