I'm about half way through this alphabet challenge, though I admit that I'm slow about it. It makes me think about what will come after this set of posts. Start over? Write whatever I want? It's hard to think about it when I don't have a structure to write within.
Or maybe I won't write? Maybe I'll just post photos? I have no idea.
I've had some success with getting some of the creative projects 'on to paper' so to speak, since the last post. I have a collection of photos, a skeleton outline of my commune project, and a more fully outlined mystery novel, with a paranormal idea for a novel as well. My romance novel is stuck at around 5k, and I'm not sure what to do with it, really.
My business cards arrived today. They have my new name and contact information. I can't help but feel a rush of excitement that I am moving forward into the world as Cadence, trying on the the name as I get through the legal documentation. I've even joined Facebook again (on a very limited basis) to see how that feels.
I will say, there is an unexpected amount of joy in seeing my name come up at the top of the page, and seeing it there when I reply to an email. Opening the box with my business cards was even more thrilling. It's real! I'm real!
I feel like a butterfly. The past six months I have been in a chrysalis - healing, changing, reforming. Now I am getting my first peaks at the outside world from this new perspective.
