I have been having such a fantastic time with my Fiction Friday project over the summer that I have decided to start a second blog focussed on writing. The new blog is called Yarns Woven. All of my Fiction Friday posts have been transferred to the new blog. Head on over and follow the blog to receive notifications for new posts of very short and short works of fiction.
Don’t worry, the Thread Forward blog isn’t going anywhere. It will remain active and focus on the topics of knitting, knitting history, historical knitting patterns and history in general.
I am quite excited about the new blog and this new venture! I was recently inspired by Brene Brown’s book, Daring Greatly, and her use of this quote by Theodore Roosevelt:
It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; . . . who at best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly. —Theodore Roosevelt
This is me, walking out into the arena, and daring greatly!
