Been thinking about Phases…

Do ever go through phases of doing things?

My Christmas decorations are a pictorial record of many of my “craft” phases.

There was the “needlepoint phase”

The cross-stitch phase

The applique phase

The painting phase

Not to mention, the dried flower arranging phase, the knitting phase, the crocheting phase, and probably a few more I’ve long forgotten.

My writing has gone through phases, too. The write-the-story-with-no-understanding-of-story-craft phase, the learning-to-craft-a-publishable-story phase, the edit-like-crazy phase, and on and on.

I’m thrilled to finally be in the writing-for-publication phase. And I plan to persevere so… hopefully, this phase proves to not be a phase at all!

Your Turn: What are some of the phases in your life or hobbies that you have fond memories of, or… are happy to be done?
