The Icarus Shawl
spiced tea!


"People tend to look at successful writers, writers who are getting their books published and maybe even doing well financially, and think that they sit down at their desks every morning feeling like a million dollars, feeling great about who they are and how much talent they have and what a great story they have to tell; that they take in a few deep breaths, push back their sleeves, roll their necks a few times to get all the cricks out, and dive in, typing full formed passages as fast as a court reporter. But this is just the fantasy of the uninitiated."

-- "Shitty First Drafts" from Bird by Bird by Anne Lamott.

Today has been a day of shitty first drafts. And second drafts. And thoughts of taking up a trade like welding, perhaps.

Thanks to one and all for the kudos on the post and the shawl. I wish you could feel it. The shawl, that is, not the post. The yarn is just so, so soft and alpaca-y. Yum.
