It's no secret that I have a hard time writing. Simply put i'd rather be making...but there is a time and place I feel for a bit of theory, critical writing and contemplation on just what exactly all this "craft" is about. So I find myself currently working on (stressing over) a paper that I'm co-writing for the Australian National Conference this summer in Sydney. Some days I question my sanity over deciding that I could find the time and mental space with a one year old to sit down and pen some thought provoking phrases about the current state of many things craft. I normally love getting absorbed in the theory and the academic writing. But I'm a few years removed from academia and the longer I go, the harder it seems to get that part of my brain working again. But so as I trudge along hoping to make sense in my paper and to hopefully make some valid and thought provoking points I'll give you a link to a great site I just discovered with some great writing by the gifted minds of the likes of Tanya Harrod, Edmund de Waal, Love Jönsson among many others.
So if you find yourself with plenty of time on your hands indulge in the free downloads and prepare your mind for thinking!
