NovDoodle Angie’s Art of Icons

November Doodle

My CLmooc friends doodle every day. During November, my doodles will usually be from the writing for National Novel Writing Month: NaNoWriMo.

This year, my story So Says the River continues as the characters search for the dragons that help keep the balance among the many worlds. A new sighting and event had occurred, but what does it mean?

In this part of the story, I was inspired by our neighbor’s yard— imagine stumbling across an ishidoro— stone lantern— in the forest— a grove of red maples under which this sacred statue waits for your thoughts.

About the scene:
Olivia: a holder and hoarder of stories, alone and unhappy, contemptuous manager
Angie: a dreamer and wanderer who found a spark of good in Olivia, and just the place to help her
Ishidoro: stone lantern of calm in the meadow of the Red Maple, next to the spring


Angie’s Seeds

So I made a list of “seeds” that could be mapped

—Brachts — to Columbine patches

—Green Triangles — Branches of Rosemary

—Spiral — wood sorrel

—Yellow to the lantern-like area of Columbine

—Crumbles of rock— to the granite and its crystals- the footpath on the earth

As I considered each of these, I began to see each as an icon, an image for a sign that could be placed on pieces of paper I drop with a new map.

I thought this was perfect— icons for different maps all leading to the same place— a pattern, something Olivia would be looking for. I could lead her back to the sculpture where she found light and calm.
