Since y'all seem to appreciate my very imperfect ceramics, I made a Korrasami teacup, just for you. I'll send it to one of the people who comment on any chapter of my fic (rated T) by November 7th, shipping on me. (yes, this is a shameless ploy to gather more feedback.)
I'll draw a random name in mid November.
If you don't have an ao3 account, you can comment anonymously but leave a tumblr handle so I can ask you where to send the teacup if you win the draw.
One emoji comments are nice! But if you want to give more, my favorite feedback format is: “I like_____. I wish_____. What if_____?”
I get a lot from the comments I receive, thank you to all who have commented already ♡ Truly!
I’ve ben in one of those endless cycles I get of spending an hour writing four sentences and then spending two hours editing everything I’ve written so far. I’m not sure it ever actually makes the writing any better but that doesn’t stop me from doing it. I decided what might help would be taking on some nice, small, manageable projects that have a clear finish line and no real discernible purpose but I wasn’t having a lot of luck looking for something.
I went into Target to buy Halloween Candy and there in the discount bins by the door where unglazed ceramics for a dollar. I haven’t done ceramics in years, I just don’t make the time for indulgence art projects any more but at that price tag it seemed a shame to pass them up, if nothing else, I reasoned, I could put the extras in the craft cupboard and come back to them later.
The first one is done, and I was pleased that the arthritis in my hands hasn’t affected my ability to hold a brush steady. I think the little guy turned out pretty good.
