You probably start with an introduction. Like: Hi, I’m Beth. I’m new to this and suffering from stage fright.
Nah. You don’t want to alienate your first audience. You want to come across as self-possessed and semi-intelligent. You want to give your audience the confidence to trust that what you are telling them will be useful, interesting, or entertaining. You want them to return here to read again.
So, a little about this person who calls herself a Renaissance Chick: I am writer, artist, and artisan.
Story telling is something I’ve done since forever. I remember telling stories as a small child, then when I learned to write, I’d write them down. Illustrating those stories, and just drawing because I could, started early as well. Crafting things came early also. I remember playing with clay, learning to embroider, making hollyhock dolls and mud pies.
In these pages I hope to discuss some of these endeavors, as well as others, and remark on how it all is what it is.
