I did a lot of research today. Sumerian mythology has interested me lately, since it’s one of our oldest belief systems. The stories are… very human to me. Mystical to a god-tier level, of course, but still human to me. Well, perhaps I’m using “human” as a synonym for relatable in this case. I’m sure others have felt that way when they read a type of mythos. I really like Inanna, Enki, and Tiamat… Anyway…yeah. It captivated me and I’m hoping I can learn a little bit of Sumerian cuneiform myself.
Additionally, lots of astrology study today. I decided it was time to learn about the different types of aspects and what they signify. It’s…still confusing, but I have a better idea of what it all means. I was able to read my own chart better than before. I did write an article about how you can remember the astrological houses in a simpler way so that helped a bit (it’s mostly based on certain keywords and the signs; don’t judge me too harshly if you’re a hardcore astrologer lol).
Overall, a day of research was worth it. My blogging the last couple of days hasn’t been as frequent because I was focusing on my novel. Goodness, I hit a very annoying writer’s block yesterday. The left side of my brain wanted to categorize every detail about a character when the right side just wanted to let the flow happen and write. Sometimes I have to subside to the left so the flow can continue, but yesterday I pushed through that crap and let my right side take the wheel. It was rough, but I reached my writing goal. It’s the first draft. Not everything has to be perfect, just foundational.
Hopefully, I will have the first draft finished by June 1st.
