This is one of those mornings where my mind is a blank at best. I look at the computer and try to find something that moves me to write in my blog. An issue that I have a stake in or something in the news that just starts my brain moving in a direction where I can figure out what today’s entry is going to focus on.
So are there any topics you would like to see me ramble about that I have not touched on?
I shipped off the doll that I am doing a round robin with off to the next participant. I want to make sure it gets there before I send the next one to her. I have a doll in the planning stages for an exhibit at a doll show. I know what and how and I just need to go and finish it. Then there is a puppet I need to get done for LunaCon (two weeks away) along with some new stuff for the art show. I have this kookie idea I want to see if I can execute at a reasonable price. That and I have to make a few more Phluzzies since the number of Phluzzies I have to put into art shows is really low due to sales (which is a good thing).
I have some research to do for my Dr. Who short story for the anthology and I have before that another fantasy piece I need to finish and submit. I think it may be too grounded in reality for the anthology but I know it is a good story idea since I have had authors ask if I have written it or can they use the idea. I tell them this one is mine and Peter’s. So that is on the table.
Peter is writing his next Trek novel so we won’t be seeing him for the next couple of days except for food, the gym, and bowling. He does sleep contrary to popular belief. He and Caroline were so cute this morning playing with her Lincoln Logs and building various buildings before he went back to writing.
I have some wacky ideas for dolls and puppets that I really ought to write down or sketch out somewhere. I keep losing and finding the ideas again and again. My brain goes into overdrive at times which is a good thing to be so creative. I remember a time where I didn’t think I was an artist but more of a mechanic with fabric and foam (does that make any sense?) now I do think of myself as an artist among other things.
I am grateful that my brain does have this creative bend.
