music playing: Maria Callas, Casta Diva
For the second time, I shut my eyes and drew a tarot card to write about in relation to my novel and the writing process itself.
I opened my eyes and looked upon The Star. A woman stands in a pond and scoops up the water that flows upward into her hands. A blue star shines above.
The Star is a card of hope and healing. Of help from unexpected sources. It speaks, not of today, but of tomorrow. Rainbows form after storms. Dreams are possible- but it is up to the Querent to make them come true.
The last three days, I had a hellish time revising Chapter Eight. I would have teared out my hair if it weren’t for my Leonine vanity. But I kept at it, reminding myself how important my story is to me. And that I could do it.
I received wonderful words of encouragement and inspiration from my writer friends.
Saturday 7 p.m. : Chapter Eight revised.
As The Star suggests, my novel won’t be finished today. And there will, no doubt, be more struggles as I revise the second half. But I am one chapter closer to the end.
Thank you to everyone for all your support. Here are freshly baked magickal brownies: not only are they delicious, but they also help you write!
