Etsy

So I've been with Etsy since Oct now.

It's been really interesting, jewelry isn't selling as well as I'd hoped, but the baby moccasins are.

https://www.etsy.com/shop/VarietybyDesign?ref=si_shop

Newest Item to be made: I love them, they're so cute.


Best Sellers:




Finished Nano novel in January and I've actually been editing the guild books (it's sad to believe those books were started in 2009) Hoping to get some words done when Camp nano starts.

Finding the love of writing again

Finding the love of writing again

There were days when I would rush to the computer at night and open up a novel and write thousands of words without thought.

Now, eh… I could care less.

I love creating ideas. I love creating characters and worlds and everything else.

Writing outlines aren't that bad as long as I'm writing via paper.

Working on a novel though… not happening. I could stare at a Word page for hours and do nothing.

It's not writers block. I know what I want to write, I have an outline.

I just … don't want to write.

This came to a head the other night with this link: http://www.mediabistro.com/galleycat/sylvain-reynard-lands-substantial-seven-figure-deal_b55229 for a fan fiction he wrote of the twilight world.

If publishers are now taking fan fiction of worlds already known, what hope do original writing have in the publishing world?

Why write when I can't get a crit group to read any chapters?

Why write when I know that I'm not going to get anything edited perfectly?

Why write at all?

what i've been up to

I started a job at the start of January - Working at JCPenney. Surprisingly nice and I've had a ton more hours then I thought I would be - so I've been more thaen busy with that.

On the writing front - haven't worked on Nano novel sense the end of Nano. I did however get caught up in a new project.

At the end of January I started a shared world for a superhero idea.

Now in the middle of April, the world has grown so much faster and larger then I thought possible.

It's been fun creating characters, learning to write scripts.


Not so fun is hunting for new members and trying to find artist that want to work for free for a little while.

The groups hoping to use a Kickstarter Campaign to pay for artists and printing the actual comics.

Lots more to do though.

Learn about copyright and trademark laws and a whole list of other things.

Thinking to much....

I made the mistake (will not really a mistake) of reading an article at io9.com http://io9.com/5878720/how-to-create-a-brand-new-iconic-hero-or-villain and started thinking about creating a world for superheroes. Thus making me wonder if anyone wanted to do a shared world (sadly the last one I started feel apart, between Nano, the holidays and everything. everyone that joined up was so busy.) The idea is for a new and original take on superheroes and the world they live in.

So I've put some feelers out and I'll see what happens. I need to get back to do something writing wise, maybe making something that's not fully a fantasy (swords and magic) world I'll get back to doing something fun.

Comment if you want to know more.

Jan. 22nd, 2012

The writing has been slow....

I didn't write much of anything in Jan. No idea why.

mizkit just suggested doing a Nano in Feb. and I'm thinking of doing that. Just to get the Nano novel done.

We'll see how it goes.
