Etsy Shop and then submitting a book proposal in the Spring . . . however, as I was merrily rolling along creating a project, something triggered my brain toward the idea of submitting my patterns to crochet magazines . . . huh . . . As I pondered the thought, in the middle of working on this project
Needless to say my excitement level moved up a few notches and I did what was necessary to complete the project and get my proposal out in plenty of time for the first deadline!
That means, the mystery project will have to remain a mystery until I hear back from the publication. It's exciting to have a pattern submitted to a magazine and although it can also be pretty nerve-wrecking I'm finding there are many options so if it's not accepted this time, I can submit to another publication or sell it myself. Nonetheless, the most important thing is to have a constant flow of new project happening in order to keep my creativity fresh and marketable.
Stay tuned, I'll certainly keep you updated on my publishing journey!
