Sometimes the urge to write comes over me and it won't let go. This past weekend I attended Sacred Space, a conference I go to most years in Maryland. The focus at the event is on advanced magical practitioners, and the quality of the programming is very high. And, yes, I've presented there a few times, I'm proud to say.
At the conference, I attended several workshops by T. Thorn Coyle. I enjoyed them all, but the last one in particular, which was about Sigil Magic (the practice of imbuing symbols with magical power), sparked that urge to write. It helps that Thorn is a prolific writer herself and was sharing with us some sigils she'd created to help keep her writing. Because the secret to being an author is simply to produce words. Lots of words. Some of which are good words.
That's actually the secret to being an artist, too. Produce lots of art. Some of it will be good. Some of it will not be good. That's okay. Beauty. Eye. Beholder. Etc. Anyway, that's the long story of why this blog was formed. So read on and hopefully I'll produce some good words.
Cat C. is the president of Turtle Hill Events and a graphic designer, too. She's been in the events biz for more than two decades and thinks she might have a tale or two to tell.
