Etsy Find Fridays: Etsy and the Anglophile

It’s been a while since I posted about any of my latest “stuff” obsessions. I’d love to say that’s because I’m becoming less materialistic — not so consumed by want and supposed “need” for things to fill up some sort of “void” in my life.

But, in reality, I was just trying not to run up a big credit bill! Those London plane tickets were sitting on the statement in black and white, blinking up at me dangerously. I wrote out my little check, paid everything off and can now proceed to look at stuff again — with less guilt. Hooray!

And, as I’m beginning to plan my trip and continuously thinking about England, I’ve been scouring Etsy for Brit-related items to basically serve as eye candy until I commit to buying them. I’m still going to try and behave myself, but what’s a little treat to myself every now and then? I got a pretty critical book review back on my Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award submission, it’s pouring down rain in Maryland and I just need to daydream for a minute!

A few items to sate my Anglophilia (for the moment):

    • Oh, Stacy, it’s a tale of woe! 🙂 I was going to blog about it, but I was worried I’d just be throwing myself a pity party. LOL!

      I entered my novel in the Amazon Breakthrough Novel contest, made it to the top 2,000 entries but didn’t get to the quarterfinals. Since I got to the 2,000, two people reviewed the first 5 pages of my book — and I got those reviews e-mailed to me!

      One was very positive, and one was very negative. The negative one was painful to read! Criticism is certainly a big part of being a novelist, but I was unprepared for how rude it was — and just totally not constructive at all. Ouch. I’m going to try and forget about it as I work on sending it out again! 🙂
