A surprising bit of creativity

Perhaps The Artist’s Way is working after all.

I finally got a sign of returning creativity last night in the form of some interesting dreams.  I was doing my morning pages (which are bedtime pages for me) and one snippet of dream inspired to me to write a story.  I’m really not a writer.  I’ve dabbled in it but can’t stick with it long enough to write a long story. 

Everything I’ve read has said to follow those impulses while doing the pages so after 1 page of normal writing I launched into 6 pages of story.  It’s not done, but it’s at a good breaking point and I need to figure out the rest anyway.  It’s a fanfic style story and not appropriate for a family friendly venue such as this.  Actually, I’m not sure there is a place for it as I’ve never found any fanfic for the starring character.  Don’t know that I want to share it anyway.

So anyway, I find it interesting that I’ve been inspired to write instead of my usual methods of creativity.  I’ll go with it for as long as it lasts and see where it leads me.  Who knows, maybe I can be a fiction writer as well.

Just rambling

I’ve decided it’s time (long past time, actually) to revamp my website.  It’s outdated and not very useful.  I’ll have links to the assorted sites I have things for sale as well as beads that will be only available on that site.  Hopefully I’ll have it up and running by next week.

Morning pages – no responses from you guys but upon reading some other blogs where people are doing The Artist’s Way I’ve decided it’s ok to make them bedtime pages.  I’ll start that tonight.  Feels kinda weird to not do them this morning tho.

I have my first molded mannequin nearly done (ready to be dressed).  I’ll show it once I’m satisfied.

I’ve discovered that I need tougher skin to work with hemp on a regular basis.  I have no idea how DH can tie it for hours.  20 minutes working on my “top secret” idea and I got a huge blister on one finger, a smaller one on another finger and several sore spots.
