Start of a New Series aka Productive Procrastination

Since I’ve been staying at home a lot, got really into some vintage fashion videos on Youtube about sewing and patterns and Regency era/Victorian designs. Which inevitably led to my next great brainstorm – seamstress heroine who makes amazing patterns and dresses and…stuff.

Problem no.1 – Regency era or Victorian? Maybe I’ll take a giant leap and go for the Qing Dynasty and embroidery.

Problem no.2 – MC has a job, which is great. But as for the actual story…

Problem no.3 – I really suck at sewing.

With enough research, can you write about what you don’t know? Probably not as well as you’d like.

I took some embroidery classes a while back, trying to adopt a hobby that would keep my hands busy and calm the anxiety, but I ditched it pretty quickly. Recently, I picked it up again to realise that a) I still suck, b) it’s still quite fun, and c) the hours really zip by when you’re sewing and listening to TV and generally not writing.

Conclusion: possible new series, definite new procrastination method but I get to poke things with needles so it’s all good.
