While March, our "Creating Worlds" month, is now over, that is probably going to remain a theme on my blog for several more weeks, simply because there was so much to share with you, I didn't get to it all in time! I hope you all don't mind... In the future, I have vowed to plan better. The announcement came too late, I sent out my queries for interviews and features after the month had already started, and I couldn't garner enough attention for it. In some ways, I feel very disappointed. But you know, learning experiences are always like that---a mixture of emotions and lessons that will be invaluable one day.
What will happen with my fledgling jewelry business? I will try to maintain it after the move. If I can find only part-time work, I may even have more time to spend on it. It's so hard to say at this point. What I do know is that I really want to submit things to magazines, but I don't feel quite ready yet. Writing instructions is something I'm going to need to practice. I also need to keep working on things and trying new techniques or else I won't have anything "new" to offer. Why would they look twice at my designs?---This is a question I need to consider. There are some things, I know it. But the answer has to be ready and obvious. I'm not too, too worried about this; confidence comes with practice and careful deliberation, and that's what I intend to do.
Anyway, sorry for babbling. What I mean to say is, I will practice writing instructions for projects on my blog. That's what I want to focus on this month. I really admire folks like Crystal over at Crystal Clear, who always has fun little how-to DIY projects on her blog, so that's kind of what I'm aiming for. I would be happy with two to four projects over the next four weeks, if I can manage that. But, you know, I'd be happy even with one. :)
So, stay tuned!
