It’s official. Floyd County Imagination Month is coming to an end. My creative challenge for the month of November was to blog everyday. I saw this challenge through and creatively made it through 5 days of not blogging by covering it before I left town for that time. 🙂
Before this challenge, I would say I was only playing around with having a blog. It was not something I told too many people I was doing because I was barely doing it. Now I am pleased and telling everyone to check out my blog. I found that once I began writing everyday that the words began to flow. It is as if a block that I did not know I had was removed.
Throughout the month I gained a nice following, or at least in my opinion. Thirty to forty people were reading each day; I think that is exciting! The post that got the most attention was the one that was written about my Apple Bottom Jeans. That day I had forty-five people check it out! That was a really fun one to write and one of my favorites.
I have thought for years that I have had a book of some type in me and that it would emerge one day. I can now feel that emergence beginning. The book is starting to form a bit more clearly in my mind’s eye. My strength as a writer, I feel, is in essay form, and what I know about is designing, making, and selling jewelry. With that combination, I am thinking “Essays From a Jewelry Artist.” We will see what happens as I go with the flow of life.
Now that the month is over, I will no longer be writing here everyday. My goal is to post once a week, higher quality and more pictures. I had hoped to include more pictures this month but found that challenging due to my other responsibilities. I have enjoyed the daily discipline and will extend that into December. I have spent on average a half hour per day blogging, and for December I will be spending at least a half hour each and ever day on my yoga mat.
Thanks to everyone who has followed along and keep checking in!
