So... on the upside? My cold has gotten marginally better. I was in bed all day yesterday with fever to the point where I'd lay in bed for a couple of hours before I stopped shaking. :-(

Waking up today, fever-free? Made my whole day, all by itself! :-)

We're having some writers here, which is interesting. It's always interesting hearing about how others do what you want to do professionally.

The guy we had today, though? Can we all say: arrogant?

Maybe you do need to think that you've got the one right way of doing it. I don't know. I'm not writing for a living (yet!). But to outright state that Stephen King's doing it wrong? I mean... you can argue that you don't like his books. You can even argue that they're badly written. But you can hardly argue that he's a success as a writer.

Yeah. I'm no big fan of fundamentalists. I would really have liked him - just once - to have said: This is how I do it. You'll find your own way of doing it.

... would've been nice to have him qualify that with: This is what I've learned through trial and error. Skip the errors I now point out to you, and everything will be so much easier.

Ok, just purchased Dreamwidth for a year. Waiting for confirmation... :-)

Not that I don't enjoy it, or that we didn't have a good time - but I'm 3 pages down on my flist so far, and there's no end in sight! *konks out*

Isn't it funny? These past few days I've been thinking about my star-signs. No, that's not a spelling error. Yes, it was meant to be plural.

See... I've always know my western star-sign. Taurus. Plodding, boring, patient unto neigh-stupidity. Marginally creative, but never flamboyant. Dull, dull, dull.

And for the first about 20 years of my life - that's who I was. I was Taurus. Plodding, boring... yadda, yadda, yaaaawn!

Then one day I'm surfing the web, and stumble onto this poem:

I am the unquenchable Fire,
The center of all energy,
The stout heroic heart.

I am truth and light,
I hold power and glory in my sway.
My presence
Disperses dark clouds
To tame the Fates.

I am the Dragon.

And I thought - hey, this sounds interesting. Wonder what this is all about?

So I looked into it some more, and found out it was a poem written for the chinese star-sign the dragon. Which, oddly enough, I was born under. Not only that - but I'm a fire-dragon.

The thing about the dragon, is that it's very flamboyant. It's fiery and fierce, very much not boring, and it loves to be the center of attention. And it's a veritable font of creativity.

And you know what? The thing that struck me when I read that was: "So that's what's been missing!" My own dragon-self had been quietly suffocating inside the great big bull.

Now, being honest, here, I haven't been doing much dragoning. In point of fact, my working life has been more tailored to my taurus-self. But the good thing about being in therapy? Is that I can feel my taurus-self shifting positions with my dragon-self. And you know what? I think it's about time my taurus-self became my solid center and the unshakeable foundation for my dragon-self. I think it's time I became that poem.
