ellen with wrench

Tuesdaily with Muse Fusion recap.

Resume and print orders printed, packing up other orders now.

My Muse Fusion turnout was not what I'd hoped, but better than I feared! There were a LOT of awesome prompts - my thanks to everyone who turned out to leave them for us!

I finished a short (700 word) story about Malaamig, Diren and Margaa finding a ruined city in the north using a prompt from sibylle and a title from ysabetwordsmith: The Forgotten City is $7 to sponsor. (Or 7 EMG/TW credits)

From prompts by kelkyag, I started Unfurled, a prequel to Harp of Feathers. At 900 words, it is very nearly finished (I have to go back and fix up some setting problems). It is $10 to sponsor, which will not only make it available to the public, but also move it to the top of my editing to-do pile. Sponsor now. (Or 10 EMG/TW credits)

stryck's prompt about hurricanes meshed with haunted_blood's picture prompt and got me the outline for a story about an Irfai family bracing for a hurricane, and the legend of the creature who used to protect them from storms and sea monsters. This one will take some finishing - sponsor for $20. (Or 20 EMG/TW credits)

And, I did some artwork!

aldersprig has housebuilding on the brain, so I sketched the very start of a northern housebuilding operation:

This is $48 to finish in ink and receive the original. I am accepting microfunding for this one in $2 increments; I will polish it further for each payment I receive, and whomever has donated the most when I declare it finished will receive the original, shipping included. (EMG/TW credits also accepted.) Microfunding has been started!

vaerys asked for landscapes, and Lichenwold in particular, so I drew this:

This is dying to be refined and painted. I just bought a BIG canvas pad, 16 x 20, and I really, really want to do this in color. $100 will get you the original and bump this to the top of my to-do list (that is a steal for a 16 x 20 landscape! You're lucky I want to do this one!). I will also take microfunding for this one, terms as above, but in $5 increments.

In factory news, still not feeling particularly pregnant. Guppy is supposedly doing some practice breathing of amniotic fluids, and is about 4 inches long.

Today, I've got a hair appointment, that job interview thingy, and I've left the afternoon open because I don't know how long either of those will take and I have plenty of things I can do in that space. Last night, our bacon got smoked, and we will be able to pick it up today; I am VERY excited to try it and anticipate bacon in our dinner tonight.

Hungry now. Going to eat and shower.


Heh. So, I was off by a week on two of my three appointments this week. Fortunately I figured it out BEFORE I showed up for them, and the important one (the massage and adjustment) is on for this week. It was a very *facepalm* moment, let me tell you.

The not-a-job-interview went fine; I like the lady I may work for, and I could see myself working in her shops without, you know, wanting to gnaw my hands off and jump out a window immediately. (That may come with the customers, but we shall see!) I'll know more for sure next week.

Now I'm going to try to do a little writing and organize the rest of my day.

Summary of abstracts

(which is an ironic title, given that another definition of 'abstract' is a summary...)

This page is in progress, to help keep me organized, and is post-dated to avoid from overwhelming friendslists...

Most recent additions are at the beginning of each section. These are in order of drying and scanning, not of painting.

The available paintings are $2 each if you've already sponsored enough to have a painting sent to you, or $3 US/$5 international if you missed the window. If you prompted one of them, it's on hold for you for 24 hours. Some of you get to choose another from the available pieces, let me know if you see one you'd like to put on hold, even if you don't want to make a final choice until you've seen them all. ACEO prints of any of these are available for $1 (+$1 shipping, flat fee, free if you've sponsored enough to have them sent to you). All of these post-window sales count towards my goal totals, so it's still possible I will get to the next goal - where all sponsors will also get a free ACEO print of their choice!

(You can also use your EMG credits or send a check, just let me know!)
