pondering shadows

our shadow letters theme is not progressing rapidly. here are some questions to help us decide whether we should press on, or give up and try another theme. please answer any that you wish.

are you interested in this theme?

are you actively looking out for shadow letters?

do you have some shadow letters waiting, and are hoping that we get unstuck? what letters do you have?

are you generally interested in themes that may require "treasure hunting" for letters? or should we stick to themes for which people are more likely to have letters "on hand"?

should we give up and try another theme?

if we give up, should we try the shadow letters again in future (after people have had more time to hunt)?

fwiw, i have shadowy I, L, S, W, X and Y waiting, so far. a couple of them are not all that great but would do in a pinch.

I don't have one single shadow letter. And I haven't been able to find any!

I'll hae to admit that I have some letters with shadows, but no shadow letters. mag3737, I'm impressed that you found the shadow A, but I can't imagine searching out and findinng suitable letters for the rest of this alphabet.s So, what should we do? Abandoon this alpahabet and start a new one?

i forgot: i have a Q, too (and it's not just a different crop of my 'a')!

i know the shadow letters are out there, it's just a matter of hunting them out. all of my shadow letters i mentioned so far are "found" letters, but there are plenty of ways that one can find shadows of actual letters, too.

so even if we abandon this theme for now -- which is the way i'm leaning unless anyone comes up with more letters (not necessarily B) soon -- , i will push for revisiting it again sometime.

sorry I've been a little absent - I am hunting for shadow letters sporadically, let's do the theme another time! :-)
