thud

Merp.

Did something to my right index finger yesterday and it hurts like crazy today, and I can barely bend it. It's a little swollen, but doesn't otherwise look bad - no idea what I did. Will be brief today, and this has borked my Muse Fusion/writing plans pretty well. I got one story done, at least! A bit of a sparse turnout in whole.

Factory: good.

Plans: programming as can, and making English muffins.
big damn wrench

Art update

I was able to draw for a while yesterday before my finger gave out (did I sprain it drawing? What a horrifying idea..); I had an old sketchbook with me at gaming and worked on these pieces:



This is a town I sketched roughly a loooong time ago, that seemed like a good fit for a town Deirdre worked into a story for the Sea Monster month in May. I decided to clean it up and see about writing a city description for it.

And, with another donation towards this piece, I did some more refining on Skykittens:



You may sponsor more work on this for $5.00. The person who sponsors the most receives the original, worldwide shipping included. (By random draw, if there is a tie) And, Torn World members may also sponsor using credits: 1 credit is 3 minutes. :) (5 credits/dollars is 15 minutes, 10 credits/dollars is 30 minutes, etc.) Current high sponsorship is tied at $5! This piece has received three rounds of sponsorship, two by donation and one because a story is being written about it. The next donation takes it into inking, which is sort of an all-or-nothing step (so it's a great deal even if you go to $10 and ensure you win the original!). I'd like to wrap this sucker up soon, so I'm going to call it done it I don't receive another sponsorship for it this week.

Finger is wrapped up in a dog bandage (a self-clinging sport bandage that is the same as the ones they make for humans, but about half the cost at a vet store and comes in Bright Red) and it works okay, though still complains if I hit a key wrong or try to grab something I shouldn't. I got my freelance programming finished and may tackle the EMG-Zine abstracts fundraiser next, though I haven't entirely given up on tackling another Muse Fusion prompt, either.

First, though, I want to vacuum! (I know how to have fun...)
