The writing is going along well. The anthology will be out soon - and they are looking into getting 3 of us together at a local bookstore for a signing. omg. ha.
The steampunk jewelry is doing crazy-well. I'm just amazed. Cin and I were talking about it... how it is so much different than writing. With writing the idea is almost secondary to the work involved with the writing. It is a LOT of work. Then editing. Refining. Clarification. Rewriting. and then more work. With the steampunk jewelry its almost the opposite. The techniques I've learned over the last 2 decades (more!) of making jewelry are skills just waiting for the idea. Once the idea comes together it all just clicks into place - and then all i need to do is unpack those physical skills and create. Sometimes a piece will take a week of thinking and re-arrangement of pieces... but only a few hours to complete.
meanwhile. more snow due? wtf? I know. Global warming has melted the frigging icecaps and they are all coming here to toronto to party.
