Little self promotion here.

If you want to know when I get published with my YA sci-fi about superheroes or my adult fantasy about Wheel of Time trope subversion, here is my newsletter.

I won't be updating this until I'm published, so no worries about spam!

... or it dawns on me what time it is and I have to walk the dog and eat dinner. Maybe tonight? Tomorrow for certain. I want this chapter done.

trans creator scammed out of $5k, gofundme link 

Okay, I've put this off long enough, I'm going to write this poem today! (or tomorrow!)

This is a kind of random request. I'm looking for a new lanyard to put my work badge on. Do any art creators offer or go through sites that offer lanyards? Let me know, please!

Boosts OK!

The question of a non-binary or non-gendered alternative to “Ma’am” and “Sir” goes around Mastodon every so often, and I've never seen a good answer that works in all the cases where we use "Ma'am" and "Sir" (no, "comrade" is not it).

But I've just read
medium.com/@transstyleguide/wh which has a suggestion I do like: use "Mx." Yeah, just like the title. I think this could actually work and I'm gonna try using it.

Ugh. This chapter rewrite is kicking my butt. I mean, all these final ones have, but this one is one I’m actively avoiding working on because I plan to write a short poem for it in a style I’m not used to.

Plan is to use a Viking style. I know how I need to lay it out, I even have examples to draw from, it’s just the doing part. And I have to come up with the lore being told, which I think is what’s got me procrastinating.

... tempted to play more Stellaris and put this off some more.

‪Gah! Okay, so I went to give the rabbit a piece, A PIECE, of banana, but stinker grabbed the peel instead and ran off with it.‬

‪I had to chase him down and trade him a smaller bit of peel for the larger so he wouldn’t bolt again.‬

‪Pets. I tell ya.‬

Chapter 20 rewritten and edited for this second draft! Onto chapter 21. Figure I will end with 26, maybe 27 chapters.

This is an adult fantasy trope subversion, told from the POV of the doomed-to-die mentor character.

Finally got the spear sheath stitched together and on. It’s a perfect fit, nice and tight. I’m very happy with this. Eventually, I’ll put the raven design onto the spear head itself.
