~ If you are here for the GYB party – you might want to start HERE.~
Strolling through the blogs at the Grow Your Blog party hosted by Vicki over at 2 bags full this weekend, I’m realizing how writing is connected to so many other Crafts.
I weave words together to create a story.
Sometimes it feels like… quilting…. I have all these disparate bits and pieces… small scraps of thoughts and ideas and character voices and I lay them all out and find the most pleasing pattern and then… I stitch them together to make something warm and comforting.
I sculpt the draft.
I thread word after word into a beautiful creation – like beads on a necklace.
Some days it feels like hammering metal.
Other days, it’s like making a lovely nest of yarn.
Hmmm. I like that.
