And by the way, you know, when you're telling these little stories? Here's a good idea - have a POINT. It makes it SO much more interesting for the listener!

Recently I’ve tried to be a little better about updating my blog. I’ve written a few things and gotten some good feedback. A couple of people have even off-handedly said that I should consider being a writer. Okay, one of those people was my mom, but anyway. The reason I would never consider being a writer is because of a day like today.
I spent over an hour trying to write a blogpost that ended up going nowhere. I couldn’t even begin to tell you what it was supposed to convey to the reader. It was awful. I suppose it wasn’t any worse than spending an hour making a ceramic tumbler which ends up cracking because I let it dry too quickly. This happened earlier in the week and I had to throw it away. It seemed less painful than the writer’s block.
I was going to write some witty anecdote to get around to telling you that I’ll be traveling up to Chicago for Renegade Craft Fair on September 10 & 11th. So I guess I’ll just say that.
