Writing books is my number one passion in life, writing in general, actually. But sometimes when I’m writing one of my novels the task can be daunting, simply because of length. Don’t get me wrong, I love the process, even if a book takes months to write, or years depending on the project, it’s a rewarding experience.
Sewing is how I keep my inspiration going, whether it’s clothing or making one of my bags, it’s nice having something tangible that I’ve created. With books, even when you’re finished with the first draft, you’re still far from finished, but with sewing I can design and create something in less than a day.
My recent obsession has been making my dragon bags, probably because there seems to be an array of crocodile patterned vinyl in fabric stores and in the Los Angeles fabric district as of late. I pretty much have a different dragon bag for each day of the week at this point lol!
My husband and I are considering turning it into a business, maybe outsourcing the work since I don’t have the time to make them for sale purposes. Writing is my priority, not just in passion, but also as my main source of income. Though it would be nice to make all my little dragons myself, if I want others to share in the fun and joy of owning their very own dragon bag, I have to outsource.
In the meantime, I’m creating to give myself the inspiration I need to finish my final Riser/Atlas book mash-up! Surrounding myself with all my magical creature bags helps me keep my focus and inspires me to keep writing!
I'm a writer of YA fiction, fiction, comics, television and movies. I try to make all my stories full of jumbly goodness :-)
