For now, though, I can turn my efforts to more leather carving. I chanced by my local leather supplier two days ago, and bought a bunch of blank bookmarks. I have a few designs I want to do, but I have to get the designs down first. That's today's creative endeavour.
Speaking of leather, I placed another massive order. I have more book jackets I want to do, and I have plans for another dice bag that I'm genuinely excited about... I think I was a craftsperson in a past life. Given my fixation on food, I feel that I was probably a craftsperson who died of starvation. So... either not a good one, or Irish, perishing in the potato famine.
Also on the agenda today, more editing. I'm not far from the end of the manuscript, and will be able to get back to my own writing soon. My brain has once again returned to Cai, the protagonist of my Great Man series. I have two other books I need to finish before I go back to that series, but I'm pleased to see him again, even if he's melancholic and suffering. He's not had a happy life, folks. He'll always be my favourite character and, if I may just toot my own horn for a moment, I've come up with a few good'uns.
There isn't too much else that's going on in my life. After the two days of excitement in which I left the house for the first time in forever, everything else feels rather dull. I have a lot of plans though... I mean, I have the leather on order, I have the designs for bookmarks to do, I have prepared a large canvas for a new painting (which I might not get to do before next year, as I'm waiting on something in the post that will likely not get here for a long, long time... never fear, though, I have four other paintings planned that I can do... I lied. Six other paintings), I have so many novels to finish writing, and more ideas waiting in the wings... Lordy there's a lot coming.
But today, it's rather dull.
Righty, I have to go and get this manuscript edited, and maybe do something about updating my website to offer some editing services. Maybe. I'm still don't know about that.
I'm blabbering. I'm off. Have yourselves a good day!
