Though, I will most definitely never do it again, because it was brutal. Why can't it be held in a less busy month, like January? November is crazy, always.
Anyway, I learned quite a bit from the experience, such as:
- My vocabulary is much smaller than I thought it was. (Favorite repeats including "suddenly", "instinctively" and "hugged his body in all the right ways"... Just kidding.)
- Outlines are important. I didn't have any, and wrote as I went along. Hence numerous plot-holes and characters suddenly (used it again) changing eye-color and what not.
- One's family will begin to think one is having delusions of grandeur, resulting in ridicule.
Back to the point! You didn't come here to hear me wax on about amateur writing! You want free stuff! Whee!
Up for grabs:
A Japanese paper embosser from my favorite store, Daiso!
I have one myself, and it's a lot of fun, simply snap the plates into the clamp...
It's not as deep of an impression as my Cuttlebug, but it's a lot more portable and still super cute. You could decorate love notes, gift cards, business cards, or even your monthly bill statements!
