Coming soon to teh intarwebz: Metaphor Traci!
You will quickly learn two things about me:
1)I can't draw
2)I can't write
Also I'm not sure where on the internet to put her. (LJ, Blogspot, somewhere else?) Basically last night at Crosswinds I was thinking (oh snap!) and I wanted to write my thoughts down but I couldn't think of words so I drew a picture instead. And today I tried to make a writeup about what the picture meant. And I realized I should do this more often because it really, really helped. As I was drawing the picture I examined how I was depicting myself and realized that, while not grossly inaccurate*, the depiction had some interesting traits, and I felt like I was creating a character. And since, for example, this particular picture involves the metaphor of breaking out of a box, I named her Metaphor Traci. And decided I wanted to keep doing this :)
*Of course it's grossly inaccurate, it's a stick person. =P
