My mind is always full of projects and I'm not always good about writing them down if I don't make them right away. I think I have a temporary solution for that. I briefly mentioned it as a 'tweet' the other day. Have any of you heard of the National Novel Writing Month? Check out the site for details. The gist of the project is to write, write, write every day during November. I for one, don't think (no, I know!) I can't crank out 50,000 words in a month. So, I've decided to take a more 'me' approach to this.
I will declare November my personal 'One Month of Projects'. I'm going to come up with 30 original projects and I'll develop them as detailed sketches. If I'm on a roll I'll write a semi-tutorial for each. Notice I didn't name it very specifically. The projects will involve any type of handmade activity like paper crafts, knitting, crocheting, sewing (if I'm being brave)—anything. The good thing about this is that potential Christmas projects may come out of this.
I won't be blogging about any of my projects so the perfectionist in me doesn't have to worry about showing something lame. I'm not going to aim for perfection. I'm aiming (as the NNWM stipulates) for quantity and brainstorming.
Speaking of projects here is a little teaser of my latest project. I LOVE it. I'm starting to write the tutorial for it and it will eventually see the light of day. I'll keep you posted.
The countdown starts now. Four days until my OMP starts. Anyone want to join me?
