Which card are you?

I saw this on Soleil's blog, and it looked fun so I thought I would put my own here. ^_^

You are The Moon

Hope, expectation, Bright promises.

The Moon is a card of magic and mystery - when prominent you know that nothing is as it seems, particularly when it concerns relationships. All logic is thrown out the window.

The Moon is all about visions and illusions, madness, genius and poetry. This is a card that has to do with sleep, and so with both dreams and nightmares. It is a scary card in that it warns that there might be hidden enemies, tricks and falsehoods. But it should also be remembered that this is a card of great creativity, of powerful magic, primal feelings and intuition. You may be going through a time of emotional and mental trial; if you have any past mental problems, you must be vigilant in taking your medication but avoid drugs or alcohol, as abuse of either will cause them irreparable damage. This time however, can also result in great creativity, psychic powers, visions and insight. You can and should trust your intuition.

Editing -- Stage one

I knew that I was going to have to throw quite a few words away before I started the editing process, but it is getting worse and worse as I go on. Currently I have tossed the first three whole chapters, which were more world building then anything. I have also deciding to change the main POV character which means half the scenes in the entire book will be wiped out because of this. I have soo much to do... Though I am only doing it after I have finished my word count for 2Yn which I have a feeling will be going through the same process as this book I am writing now.

At least I finally have a direction for the book to take. :P

Beneath Ice Edits

I finished 'Beneath Ice' a couple of weeks ago and have only ever thought of it as a practice. However, this is the first time that I have actually started the editing stage, so I'm excited. This will give me practice and a feel for full on editing. I mean I have edited small works, but nothing like this. It will be interesting. . . ^_^

National literary day

Happy National literary day to all my fellow writers! I was so stoked when I realised that it was today, especially since it's my 18th today, yes, I feel old, lol, but now I can legally drink alcohol and I have to vote this weekend! The joys of getting older! :D

My 2Yn is going lovely! I finally got the outline done and so everything else is moving smoothly!
