I managed to get a few knitting articles from the site that I work for the other day, and lemme tell you, it was a fun experience writing them. They are nothing hugely special, just quickie 500 word pieces, but I'm pretty excited to be writing about knitting!
Here they are:
How Do You Stop the Sides From Curling When Knitting a Sweater?
How to Stop Your Knitting From Sliding Off the Needles
and a sewing article:
How to Sew Fabrics With Four-Way Stretch
Most of my articles up till now have been about travel, which I love writing about, but it got a little repetitive for a while there. I was writing a lot of "Hotels in..." type articles, which got a little dull. Hotels, no matter where they are, pretty much offer the same thing: bed and toilet.
I also wrote a couple of brief political bios for another site recently, which I'm pretty excited about. It was a really nice change of pace. Plus, I actually got to interview people for them. That's always fun.
Yay! I'm so excited to be writing again!
And no, I don't think I'll be doing a novel for NaNoWriMo. It's just not where my head is right now.
