With the end of one year and the start of another comes the season of recaps and resolutions. For my part, I did make a little headway on my novel in 2016 – I took a workshop, got into an intensive, and, after initially failing at writing group, helped form a new one with some GrubStreet classmates. I even got a dozen blog posts up, and a few people actually read them. LOOK AT ME GO!
Well, OK, it was a short trip. Despite the progress, I still don’t have a first draft to show for it. I haven’t written that novel (yet). What I do have is an acute case of creative ADD. I can’t help it, I love to make things. That includes stories, sure, but sometimes a gal just needs to cut with a pair of scissors in her hand instead of a cursor on her screen.
This year, I resolve to focus as much of my creative energy as possible on book writing. But in the meantime, here’s an online exhibit of some things I made in 2016 instead of cranking out my novel.
Tour it with me, won’t you?

A beachy children’s book for my other niece. Technically this is a book, but it is not my novel, so it counts.
