I'm having a little trouble with my writing. After doing some great dialog before gem show (that really is my favorite thing to write), I can't seem to finish the scene and move the story forward. It would help if I knew what the story was. I know that eventually I'll hit my stride and get going, but right now it's just not happening.
Anyway, today I went out for lunch with one of my bead forum friends who was out for gem show, and her mom, who is turning into a bead fiend. First we went to the bead store, to find a few things for necklaces that Charlene was making for her mother. I got to help pick beads, and I picked up some things for a bead swap I'm participating in. Plus some cobalt blue beads, modern reproductions of those Russian cuts. I really love that shape.
During lunch we talked about all kinds of things, which was a lot of fun. Sometimes it's nice to get together with people and just hear the random stories about their lives, all kinds of experiences that I've never had and never thought about. And of course, it's always nice to get out of the house when I should be at home cleaning!
