I started this post with a weird title: I got Nothin’. When I started typing, I didn’t have an idea what I wanted to write, so I randomly typed out the usual bemoaning of an author fighting to get past a blockage.
About 3 paragraphs of bitching in, I had an idea.
I love it when I berate the muses, and they throw a good idea my way. Well, that, and I loosed the earworms on them again. They just can’t get enough of that damn banana-flavored love machine.
A lady on my chainmaillers group on the Evil Book of Faces was showing off her decoupaged scales, and I casually asked if she can do this extremely AWESOME artwork on the inside of the scales as well as the outside. I had a ducky idea in mind.
She could, and she did. So now I have a ducky in my flock sporting some very intense artwork across his beak and down his tale. I like to call this guy the Fire Water duck.
He’s all ready and listed on my Esty shop. And, I wrote up a little story for him on the shop, too.
In fact, all the ducks on the shop have a bit of a tall tale behind them. I just can’t resist giving them a blurb of backstory when I list them. Guess I just like to personify my creations?
Go have a read, if you’d like… Tempest and Teapot on Etsy
Does it bother anyone that I keep splashing my (attempted) kiddie-friendly blog with unsolicited Duck Pics? I’m such an exhibitionist, no?
