A few years ago…my Tarot Card reading

A few years ago, I decided to stop and have a tarot card reading. Now that I am getting this novel together, there have been many different people pushing me to post it-some I know and others I don’t.  So…here you guys go!

first card: SEAS. Cleansing, 5 frogs on a lily pad

second card: EARTH. Ace manifestation. Work well together? Don’t ?

third card: ECSTATIC UNION.  Acceptance and reverse

fourth card: CRONE VISIONARY. (Wind). I see things as they are.

(THE TRANSITION)

THE FOOL (the middle card). Not a “fool” more introspective.

FUTURE (POST CURRENT)

card one: CARD OF DEATH IN REVERSE.  Something good born in the near future

card two: WISE WOMAN. Sees the future and the past. * sees other peoples intentions *

card three: FIRE CARD. Forgiveness.

Card four: WIND.  Child conscious. Not naive/ trusting*

hope everyone had a good Father’s Day 🙂 I plan on struggling through the boring details, grammatical errors, structure, format and order this week! Promise 😉

Thinking about my education and how my writing is going

I have two advanced degrees: a Bachelor of Science in the physical sciences and a Masters in a social science. After those 4 years of lots of math, physics and all the other coursework dealing with integrating science and technology, I worked for roughly six years in laboratory science-biotech and environmental mainly.   For me it was a dramatic move into graduate school for Library and Information science.

The most difficult part of graduate school the first year was remembering that I could write at all after years of lab reports. I did pretty well once I got into it. I was always good at reading and writing.

Now, Six years after graduate school, I finally have the time to compile this “original piece of work” I have been working on for the last five years in between all the dead-end jobs I have held. It’s definitely fiction and I am labeling it as a manuscript(I think that’s the correct term), but I suppose it will eventually be a novel. Published or not, I am in search of a sense of accomplishment.

Look for my next blog/entry about dialogue.

Healing: Living in “writer’s block” means I have to draw when forced to break from writing.

Promise to any of you readers, blog followers or supportive friends: I won’t be posting that much of my artwork. However, I would like to mention how supportive my husband has been through all of this. He knows of my previous anger issues, so here’s a couple pieces I drew with a fist in the air.

Better a fist on paper than to have mine go crashing through a wall or a window.

Forced to make analogies again…ugh.

I have had to resort to making analogies a few times over the last 4-5 years that I have been putting this original work of mine together. Lucky for me I didn’t have to make it up on the fly-already had it, handwritten on one of my hand written thesaurus cheat sheets.

SO…all I can do is vent now. Vent about what I did during those times when writing was not possible. Here’s one of a handful of sketches I completed during the five year span it took me to compile my original piece of work. Oh how I do hate making analogies for myself.
