Week 8 – onwards we go

Week 8 – I can’t believe we are already heading into October!  I continued to fine-tuning my photoshoot set-up – with mixed results –  and both the first Night Flyer and Forest Keeper are listed on my etsy shop.

Overall, I feel I am moving in the right direction – my head is full of ideas, and a few might even be feasible. It’s hard not to get sidetracked by the fact that I am already two months into my twelve-month sabbatical – things will take time to grow and take root.

Even though the builder still can’t commit to a start date for the retaining wall, the landscaping work in the garden is progressing, and I can’t wait to built and plant the new raised beds.

The writing is crawling forwards. I have struggled with two scenes in part two for over a year now and finally given in and allowed my internal editor to rip them apart and merge what is needed into other scenes and deleted the rest.

For October, I plan to complete more paper mache sculptures, as well as somehow rekindle my printmaking – I have an idea where to start – and complete the final draft for Part 2.

So … onwards we go ^_^ …
