November is NaNoWriMo which stands for National Novel Writing Month. People with a desire to write a book sit down and whag out 50,000 words over the course of November. The point being to just sit there and do it, whatever level of drivel or sublime results, to have accomplished this one big thing.
Sadly, I am pretty sure I do not want to write a novel. But I really like the idea of doing something big, and solid, and a real creative stretch. There is also NaBloPoMo (National Blog Posting Month) but really, I just don't have that much to say.
Enter NaNoCraftMo – National mumble Craft Month – with a Flickr group to show our results.
So here we go. I am working on a series of 8×10" pieces on the pond, the same pond in the last piece, from different directions and different angles. I prepped backgrounds for 10, I have new ideas for mounting and framing them that should be more economical, and still durable, I have sketches for 5. I have the first piece laid out and I'll start stitching tomorrow.
