This blog contains: Stuff about writing, crafting, and music.

I know, I know...I'm scatterbrained and not that disciplined when it comes to my Good 2013 posts every 15 days.

It's not that I haven't been thankful, I have, I just forgot to jot it down. Just because you don't document something doesn't mean it doesn't happen. In this day of Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc. we sometimes forget that.

I think that I will return to it sometime soon. I have been very busy working on my novel as well as other creative pursuits.  I always feel the most creative at the turn of the seasons so thank goodness, spring is coming soon and a lot of ideas and creative urges are colliding in my head.

Today, I played guitar for the first time in a very long time. I would have to say at least two or three months have went by since the last time I have played guitar. It still works it's magic on me. I am still blissfully happy when I am playing and singing at the same time. It's really too bad all the other things that come with perusing music in my life at this time. Money is a big part of it, ability that I just don't have, and - the biggest one of all perhaps - drive. Drive to do it. As I've said before, I can't fake it so I've hit pause on it for now. 

I've had a few failed knitting projects this past week too. I tried using a loom to see if maybe it was faster or easier. Not so. Two needles are probably the way I will keep knitting. The looms are a little wonky and difficult to use if you don't use yarn that is stretchy.  I was trying to make panels for a blanket and the yarn has no give whatsoever. Maybe I'll try again with another project and yarn type.

I think my novel is working itself out to be a series. I don't think the whole story can be told in just one novel. This is just the beginning of the story of The Naturenetics.  I've got I think two or three chapters to go before the first draft is complete. 

Until next time...
