big damn wrench


It's windy today. The trees are whipping around in a frenzy, and every so often there are little 'leaf-devils.'

It smells like rain, and I hope that pans out, if only to cut down on the pollen.

I have some paid work to do today (horrah!) and a list of doom that needs attention.

I have a migraine hangover today. The headache itself is gone (thankfully!), but there's an emptiness in my brain that's still lingering and reminding me of pain. If the weather calms down a little, I'll go out and have a walk in the woods to try to clear the last of it away. In the meantime, eating, stretching (I can again!) and frequent breaks to keep my eyes from tiring.

I quite like the three stories I finished yesterday, even if I didn't make my goal of five. I got as much finished work as I did at the last Muse Fusion, with a higher total wordcount. It does not suck.* Particular thanks to Jeffrey!

It's raining! My toast needs toasting! I have work to do!

Maybe more blogging later...

* If I tell myself this enough times, I may actually believe it...

Sponsorship poll

Freelance project 1 (of the day) is done. 1 still to do.

I also got auto-approval working for print services. (If you've proven that you've got a handle on what high resolution files are and how big they can print, you don't have to wait for me to inspect the files before you can order them.)

And, I got a general donation towards my writing yesterday, which can be applied to either of these choices:

Poll #1563881 Sponsored Fiction

Which story should be sponsored?

By the Clock

By the Clock, 900 words, features Birka and Jerumal, and is future-dated for probable release next January at our current rate. :P It was prompted by valdary. If sponsored, I will print it here early - it doesn't contain major spoilers that aren't already spoiled.

Spilled is 1650 words, about Areluu and her age-set's last test. It includes Lenaroth. It was prompted by tonithegreat. If sponsored, I will print it here as soon as I get character approvals. No spoilers, it's set in the past.

A full Muse Fusion review will be posted in the torn_world community journal when I get back from lunch out with my sweetie. Lunch out! Like, out of the house! Like, at a restaurant! And I don't have to order dry toast and a boiled chicken breast!
