  1. @daisywreath DARIA! So great and has stood the test of time with the lessons and snark! I don't know what my career has in store but it's SO different from what I wanted in my teens! I had a friend over for a crafternoon while I did this page and she was like "what are you doing?" I replied, "I don't know, dabbling in paint. Not letting myself think? Having fun just using some paints and sponges and playing." Thanks for being the art journal guru!
  2. My first page is a quote from my favorite show Daria which reflects my job currently and how I feel as an crafter. The next is my 2020 beginning that I'm still working on.
  3. I haven't started my pages yet - plan to do some Friday but LOVE the videos, inspiration and tuts. I needed this to get started! Your stuff looks great!
  4. I plan on making a lot of gifts - I should probably start that this weekend 😆 Lotion bars in my instant pot in the shape of darth vader heads is one gift. Some ornaments for my mother in law. Some custom bedazzled frames with fun pictures for relatives. Earrings and necklaces for some friends and moms. Scarf holders out of polymer clay for grandmas. Shirts with funny things on them for husband. Whew - hopefully this thread keeps me motivated!
  5. @Kim Werker super win! also if there's a sexy scene super duper win!
  6. What have you resulted in this nanowrimo? I started and have kept up a 200 word daily minimum which was huge for me. It's achievable. I have created an outline for my novel in scrivener and added to it. I finished at least 2 scenes in the nove. What are your results?
  7. Just one more week! What does it mean to make it count? Mine is getting my ideas down, having a fleshed out outline to come back to and marinate on. Share your make it count? What does success look like at the end?
  8. @Kimberly Hirsh congrats on the lit review!
  9. How do you finish a scene? In one writing session or do you leave something to come back to later so you know where to pick up? I'm realizing I haven't finished many scenes except in my brain. I'll start ones, and not remember to come back to it. Anyone else have tips?
  10. More than halfway! We've past the ides! Don;t flounder now, this is when doubt creeps in. It already had for me. I lost momentum for about a week, just jotting down ideas for scenes, starting some dialogue here and there, 50 words or so but nothing substantial. Get back to those words! It's a Monday Funday! What are your characters excited for? What do they need to do? Have a conversation and pop out some writing!
  11. @daisywreath I'm up for starting whenever
  12. I got lost last week as did some of my fellow writer groupees. When you are blazing away to get to a word count, do you get lost? Where am I in the story? Did I go so fast that I forgot a scene? Did I already write about that? What am I missing? Today I decided to take a quick reread - not to be confused with an edit - to just get a focus again. And write 200 words that are helpful to my story.
  13. I haven't written anything in 3 days. Everyone has moments (or days) where reality creeps in. Mine is a family visit. I could have snuck in some writing in between moments of hanging out and stuff but I decided not to force it. I'll catch up. 600 words is not lost, just waiting for later. Don't beat yourself up, it's not helpful.
