So, what is authentic femininity?
In the Beginning, God contemplated the possibility of creating a world. A world of matter: mater, materia. There, below, lay the formless void: unformed but receptive. He withdrew into Himself and He asked what the purpose of this world would be. Would it just be a pretty artwork to delight the eyes of the angels? No. He had a greater purpose than that. He would create souls, capable of free will, capable of love. Souls in a somatic matrix that would raise this matter to communion with divinity. A new kind of being in His own image and likeness which He would introduce into His own self by taking on a body and becoming one of them.

Hi all. I've been incommunicado for a bit. It's because I'm writing a three day novel, as part of the three day novel writing Labour Day weekend competition. It's something I've meant to do for several years, but this is the first time I haven't chickened out. It's now officially five and a half hours into my second day of writing. I've produced more than 25000 words. I'm kind of writing in a daze at this point, hoping that the Muse will see me through the end. I'm working down at my computer in the basement, which is this old, stone-walled, cavernous environment, with a deep window-well full of cobwebs and a skeleton incense burner reposing on the sill, with a burned stick of sandalwood stuck into his ribs. A perfect place for writing horror. Anyways, pray for me. I still have at least 25000 words to go...
