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 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 😉
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.
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.
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.
