In the Not Too Distant Future

I have started three separate posts today and have subsequently trashed each one. Maybe it’s low blood sugar or the residual effects of my recent uneasy mood, but I can’t seem to get any combination of words make any kind of sense today.

Etsy has me stressed, mostly because I feel like a stranger in a strange land there. When it comes to eCommerce, my specialty lies in the individual web site. I’m still trying to navigate the ins and outs of selling in this kind of marketplace and discover ways to make Etsy work to my advantage. In the meantime, I have a ‘small fish in a very big pond’ feeling.

I haven’t started a new painting in almost two weeks. I’ve been focusing on pendants because I can make them fairly quickly and easily add them to the shop. I have some more ideas for my Birches series, but I’m also in the mood to try something new. I’ve been kicking around a few ideas. I really should try to regain my focus, start a new painting, and make some new clay canvasses for pendants.

Or maybe I’ll just keep watching episodes of MST3K, staring blankly at my computer screen, and occasionally knocking over bottles of glaze and making a huge mess of my desk…

One thought on “In the Not Too Distant Future

  1. hang in there! I can’t wait to see what you come up with next. it’s kind of neat to have online sales and an online “shop” – i would think that might make things a little easier than trying to place items in brick and mortar stores – i have no idea how anyone gets started doing that. I have often wondered…

    I’m willing to bet it’s not unlike what one has to do to get published as a writer. I can work to my heart’s content on material, but actually finding a way to sell it to an agent or publisher is so daunting i haven’t even been writing lately.
