As I thought about what to write about this week I realized that much of what I’ve been doing is making samples for my book and writing. I thought I’d share a short post on what it feels like to write a book. I’ll bet what I am experiencing is almost predictable-the ups and the looooong downs!
One fun thing has been that I’ve had to purchase more fabric. I know, I know, such trauma!
I get to play with my new stash for one of my projects.
And another project.
I’m using this as my starter to keep the thread nest from forming on my blocks. I have almost an OCD attraction to this thing. I don’t want to start a new one. This one is so thick and beefy and full of thread and history! I know it’s a little weird, this thing I have for it.
I’m accumulating my projects in the Dining Room for future photography by C&T. The Dining Room table is filling and I haven’t even begun to ready for Houston yet!
Baby Boy is at my side, encouraging me, along with his favorite dinosaur.
And I turned my back long enough for this to happen. It has been well goobered and chewed and slobbered upon. I wish I’d been able to capture the moment of coming into the room and seeing this draped over his guilty body!
Sometimes I need to just withdraw to my “Contemplation Corner”. I get dappled sunlight in the afternoons and I just love that!
In a nutshell, here is my synopsis of writing a book:
Notice the part after “Significant Derailments”? I’m at that point right now. I’ll think that I am getting to a good point, and then I’ll realize that I have left out an entire section, or that an entire section needs to be reworked. I will fix that, only to find something else that needs attending to. Remember Whac-a-Mole? That’s me. Right now. I hope I get out of this loop soon.
I don’t know what happens after this Whac-a-Mole thing. I am confident that at some point I will end up back at “This is awesome”!
In the meantime, I am heeding the sage advice of a friend.
I’ll be linking up with Nina-Marie’s Off the Wall Friday where the links are always good.
