Ok so like suddenly, I had this feeling deep down inside that I absolutely must make a dream catcher or I would go insane. I just HAD to make one and I've never ever made one before. So to get me started I went to Barnes and Noble and got a starter kit that came with everything I needed, a book on the power of dreams according to Native Americans and a dream journal. Yay!
So I totally didn't get any writing done tonight, but every now and then you have to take a break-they say it's healthy. So instead I spent my evening making my dream catcher and it didn't come out so bad at all. It wasn't hard and it was so fun. I'm going to make another one!
It's funny because the whole time I was making it I kept thinking about the sudden urge I had to make one, which is exactly the way I describe the onset of magic powers in my book. Wake up, have urge, do it!
Also, I printed out the first seven chapters and had it bound because I was just curious as to how heavy it would feel in my hands at this point (pretty substantial) and I'm giving certain select people a copy to read. But it's neat to have it all in front of me like this (if I didn't have it bound-the extreme length it is already, it'd be a mess).
Oh and when I walked into Barnes and Noble the first thing I saw was this fabulous huge book on India. I seriously walked in, saw the book and went, "must have." I'm having a lot of bizarre urges lately. Anyway, the photos are gorgeous (like beyond) and they have categories set up inside that are just like the different subjects covered in the Visual Cultures in India class. It looks like it could be the text book, so I'm going to take this as my first positive sign.
Anyway... I cannot believe that it's Thursday already (in 1 minute technically). This feels like the fastest week of my life. Sooo off to bed, so I can see if my dream catcher has any effect on me:-)
