I love making new things. I feel satisfaction when I finish that chocolate pie and it's perfect. Up until very recently, I had a crafting blog. I like to make cards, scrapbook, make personalized notebooks, whatever I feel like. I feel like I accomplished something good when I create.
Of course, recently all of my creation juices have been going toward writing. But, I've recently received an insane number of rejections on my full manuscript. (Not just queries. Query rejections are like a pin prick. Full rejections are like a stab in the stomach. And I've had many. It's a wonder I'm still alive with all this internal bleeding.) It's my first novel, and I've been working on it for 14 months. Sadly, I shelved it yesterday. It seems so final. Like I need to have a funeral or something.
Or maybe a renewal. My good friend, Jenn, posted this on her blog. I think it's what I need to keep myself in the creation vibe.
The first five people to respond to this post will get something from me!
My choice. But for you. Handmade. (And I can wield paper and scissors with flawless ease. I've been known to sew a mean button on, too.)
This offer does have some restrictions and limitations:
1: I make no guarantees that you will like what I make.
2: What I create will be just for you.
3: It'll be done this year.
4: You have no clue what it's going to be (nor do I at this point).
If you feel inclined, re-post this on your blog and offer to create something for the first five people who respond. The first five people to leave a comment here will receive a handcrafted something or other.
