    If You’re Going To Draw A Sword, Make It An Ace: June 2019 Snapshot

    Ace of Sword Tarot card.It arrived a little late, but the 8 of Wands I drew for May pulled through: I finished my novel draft! If you’ll remember, the 8 of Wands foretells the realization of creative goals. I’d say this definitely fits, and the good energy keeps coming in June.

    This month is all about the Ace of Swords, bringer of:

    .  .  .  . Hard-fought success
    .  .  .  . Bright new beginnings
    .  .  .  . Growth through decisiveness

    Generally, I hope to avoid Sword cards, but the Ace is the exception. Like The Sun in the major arcana, it envisions a positive outcome in the immediate future.

    Now that the fully revised draft is complete from end to end, it’s time for a few final read throughs before handing it off to my wonderful critique partners and beta readers. But for right now, a nap 😴.

    The Finish Line: May Snapshot

    3 of Wands

    Like the mini Jennie in this drawing, I can see land in the distance. Revisions always take time, and this set has been no different. While I’ve really been enjoying the process, I’m super excited to see the story in full.

    In the meantime, there’s the month of May. Like the 3 of Wands foretells, this is a month of:

    .  .  .  . Traveling to see family
    .  .  .  . Finding and doing the unexpected
    .  .  .  . Realizing creative goals

    Coming on the heels of the 8 of Wands I drew for April, the 3 of Wands is a great reminder that I’m on the right track. Here’s to a creative, adventurous May!

    Oh, and speaking of creativity, I’ve picked up digital art using Procreate. This course has been amazingly helpful.
