Creative highs and lows (365 Creative, January 23)

January 23, 2012

One of my essays was accepted for publication in the Santa Fe Literary Review today!

And….

This broke:

I don’t make bracelets ever. The last time I did, it broke all to pieces. PMC is very brittle. This time I thought I’d aced it, and this one isn’t designed to go all the way around the wrist. Rather, I’ll make a nice leather piece for it with a lobster clasp or snap closure.

But I didn’t reinforce the back of this one in two key places, and it snapped in my hands when I was trying to adjust its shape very, very gently.

Grrr….

So I quick made another one, and put the broke down version in my scrap bag.

You win some, you lose some. Such is the creative life.
