The Crafty Report
Anyway, I did actually get some crafty things done in the second half of last year. ( Many photos behind the cut. )

Yes, I did NaNoWriMo again.
It actually went very, very much better than last year.
I had to restart it. My first attempt would work better for an opening to a sequel, which I don't have a plot for, so that was a short road to nowhere.
I managed to get to about 35k on my second attempt before getting horrifically stuck. I flailed around for a few days and ended up writing out a time line of events in the two locations which helped a lot, largely by making me go "but why did they do this/did that happen".
Eventually I realized I had started at the wrong point in time again. So I jumped back and started writing another beginning, but this one should hook up at some point in the middle of the story to my second stab at the idea.
I still have a list of "why" to work out, but it's not the worst 50k I've ever written.
