Keeping it Real...
Welcome! No matter how you found this, God knew you'd be here today. May you absorb the message He has for you. In 2011 I shared through my writing, today I've learned there is more to me than just writing. I have the energy and passion to share with others. Sometimes through Facebook live and others with my blog and most importantly, I've learned my passion to cook and bake is a vessel to share my writing and live presentations, while glorifying God in the process. I just needed to let go, and follow His lead.
So far this month I've shared a couple projects I worked on last year and a couple I'm puttering on now. In addition to these smaller projects, I'm working on a couple quilts too. If you are a quilter and sew, could you take a moment to leave a comment below to answer this question...DO YOU WORK ON ONE PROJECT AT A TIME OR MULTIPLE ONES?
I ask because sometimes I think I should be focusing on one thing at a time but when working on a bigger project, like this John Deere quilt for instance, I like to do a smaller project. The smaller project in between allows my brain and eyes to focus on different color schemes, see a project from start to finish in a weekend, and in the case of the tissue holders, allows me to bless more people, more often.
Then I think of an author friend, Dave Fessenden's advice while attending a writers' conference a few years ago. I'm obviously a distracted artist, lol, as I am always working on a variety of writing projects at the same time. For goodness sake, while I'm looking up different sewing projects, I'm also writing different blogs and brainstorming new book and speaking engagement ideas. BUT, is all this pin-ball-machine-thinking truly a negative?
It might be, within a few minutes I forgot to share Dave's advice with you. He challenged me to write out the word MULTITASKING or was it a statement with the word multitasking in it? I can't remember which, but either way, you write it on a piece of paper. (BTW, this is a scattered thinkers way of justifying not finishing one project at a time, lol) Then he suggested I write out the same word/phrase, one letter at a time going down the paper. I think, my memory is failing me.
If Dave reads this, maybe he will comment and share this since my brain is struggling to remember. Either way, this is the point. When you simply write it out, it goes quick. If you write it one letter at a time, up and down the page, it takes a lot longer. The lesson to learn, focus on one thing, right? OR, is it okay to when sewing and quilting, to have a couple projects going on at a time?
Do you have one or more projects going on at the same time? If so, why?
