So You Think You Can Build An App?

The Dancing Pig


A Dancing pig came waltzing by, he danced the light fantastic.

He wore a crown upon his head, gold – but made of plastic.

This is definitely not Captain America.

I have a thing about dancing pigs. I’ve written about them before and I am sure they will feature again at some future date. You may think you are looking at three little pigs but in reality they are one and the same and my first attempt at animation. Not very successful I might add. More like flying pigs. Flying in slow motion in fact, but the four year old chuckled ever so slightly which sent a thrill down my spine. I know that it’s not Captain America or Spider Man not even the Incredible Hulk which he is mad about, but I did get a reaction which sent Gran spinning around the room.

So you think you can build an App?

So you think you can build an app? This was a question that was floating around my brain when I entered the 12 month Income Challenge organized by Serena Star-Leonard, business coach and bestselling author of “How to Retire in 12 months,” and “How to Succeed in 12 Months.” In my first interview I declared to the world that I was going to write and illustrate a children’s picture book and turn it into an App for smart phones and tablets. OMG what was I thinking!!!! Then to top it off I thought I could make a $1,000 from the venture – all in 12 months. That’s selling 2,000 apps in 12 months. So I am calling on all of my family and calling on all of my friends – brother can you spare a dime.

So how’s it all going?

So how’s it all going? Well it got me writing again after a long lapse which is a good thing in itself. I’ve made a prototype of the App, which I think is pretty cool, but as yet it hasn’t been tested on the four year old. The story line hasn’t got the WOW factor yet either. So it’s back to the drawing board for a redraw and a rewrite. I’ve still got ten months left to endeavor to fulfill this quest.  So be ready to be amazed.  Miracles do happen.

Question? How many Apps do you have to buy before you remember your iTunes password?
