July is the month that I set aside to begin editing my novel.
To be more specific, I have to transcribe the first draft into a digital format because my husband adamantly refuses to be my beta reader if it means trying to read my manuscript in long hand.
I also have one painting only half finished and three empty canvases staring at me from the corner of my studio.
Then there's the Personal Essay that I have to write for my grad school app..
So, naturally I am doing absolutely everything else BUT.
My favourite time-waster these days is making altered books. I get to cut up, destroy and remake books and do massive amounts of collage. I get to play with gilding, practise calligraphy and generally engage in small-scale artistic mayhem.
So, in a way, I suppose it's work.
But don't remind me of that fact, because I still think I'm just playing.
