Getting going...

I've been debating this step for months - why is it so difficult?

Each day, several things pass through my mind that I think would be great to blog about, but somehow that detail that must be completed wins out. Enough, make a start...

This week I've joined a couple of new directories on the internet - crafthaus and the handmade highway. Both have great potential and great people and a good vision - I like where they are headed. It's a little late for this season, but next year I'm headed towards integrating all the stuff I have on the go, developing and exploring this new work and documenting the parts of that process that might be useful or interesting to other people. I know what I find fascinating about other people's blogs and, although difficult to express, it could be seen as the small and fleeting epiphanies of the creative process. A problem solved. The knowledge that layers up, over time, into confidence and a genuine voice.

Actually, I don't know what's round 'the next bend'! That will make it all the more interesting. I have been known to take some fairly tight corners in my life.

There - that wasn't so bad, I could do that again..
