EVERYONE. I am so sorry. I got busy and then I got tired and then I spent several days forgetting what day it was and not wanting to do anything but watch whole seasons of television in a single day. I'm sorry! I don't think you missed anything life-changing, I hope?

Anyway, I'm back and here's Cameron's task for today.

Choose an object to be what Cameron calls an "artist totem. It might be a doll, a stuffed animal, a carved figurin[e], or a wind-up toy." Choose something you feel protective and fond of. Give it a place of honor and don't harm it. "Honor it by not [being cruel to] your artist child."

My object for this exercise -- I'm not really on board with "totem" -- is a plastic toy figure of Evil-Lyn (it's really spelled like that) from the old He-Man cartoons. I associate her with a Mary Sue character of mine whom I feel protective toward* and who has, typically enough of a Sue, more than her fair share of hidden darkness and hidden strength. I've had it for a long time, but today I took it out of a tucked-away shelf and put her on the windowsill behind my desk. I don't know if it will actually help me to have a tie-in toy from the 80s in my line of sight, but I'll try most things once.

*I use the term Mary Sue with affection; I am 100% in favor of them and I think Cameron would be, too.
