Mushroom Pirates and Candy

This weekend I met pirates who make mushroom candles and had my first taste of freeze-dried candy. The faces on the multicolored little fungi were too cute and I had to get one. The candy was a puff of cotton and then a burst of sweet. Then, a crocheted Grogu got me. The problem with selling at shows is not spending everything you earn.

As we drove to our second event of the year, I asked my husband if we were lost. The bubble soccer dome was in some small town almost an hour away from the city and I worried no one was going to know about this place. Luckily, there are people everywhere who like handmade crafts and art.

Seeing my husband’s new 3D designs take off is exciting. He doesn’t have to sit there selling my miniatures because he’s participating with his own designs. Now, I look on with envy because he’s way more disciplined than I am when it comes to sitting down at my desk. It takes me a while to get started but he can sit down and go for hours.

My head is thinking about stories I need to finish, my blog, someone else’s posts that I help with, or other work. That’s when pep talk myself and say, “Just get one thing done! Focus”. Then, I get to it.

My goal is to have another full table and a new book full of pages. Your prompt for the beginning of this week is to think of a character outside of your genre. Then, write a short about them for 5-10 minutes. Write about mushroom collecting pirates if you’re drawing blank. Just get started!

Until tomorrow!

My posts are Monday to Friday.
