Not long ago I met with my monthly writing accountability friend and an artist friend of hers. The reason for the meetup was to discuss the possibility of the artist creating the front cover for my novel.
Every time I take another step toward this dream of being a published novelist I get very excited, and this meeting was no exception. I got to tell her all about the book and we discussed some possibilities. She was enthusiastic about reading it so she could solidify what the cover might look like. Just one more motivation to get this third draft completed.
The artist is, of course, so much more than that and it was a true pleasure to get to know a little bit about her. Prior to the meeting my friend had asked me to bring my tarot cards and we did a reading for the artist about her professional and creative future. As with most readings I’ve been a part of, the cards pulled really resonated with her. It was fun and satisfying to see when things clicked for her.
It also got me thinking about my future creative pursuits. I love writing this blog, but I realize that it is somewhat limiting. Granted I write about more than dating and finding my way in these wonderful new queer spaces, but I’m wondering if this is the best place for me to explore my new alter ego, Angel.
I’m not making any decisions right now, but I have much to think about and I apologize if things start to feel disconnected and scattered while I figure out where to go next. Thank you for supporting me so far and I hope you’ll stick around.
