Well, that story is somewhat the story I intended to write, but I only had a limited time so I feel pretty good for a 3k story over my lunch. Just old men talking about old women. Oh, and a telekentic corn verses scythe fight.
Curse of the Blood Corn
I only had a half hour lunch today, so I ended up doing a little housekeeping on Fedran, my #fantasy world, and wrote up why I have "0100-00" on the spines of my first novel and all over the site.
Short answer? I'm hoping I won't write more than 9998 different POVs in a single setting and I like to keep everything neat.
I also went and tagged almost every story with an identifier.
I reworked my content warnings on my website so they are more obvious. This also means I can add them to the flash fiction and micro-stories I've been #writing.
Karin sat among the freshly cooked pies sharpening the sword of a murderer. The smells of apples and cinnamon where strong as was the stench of blood that still clung to the blade. It had been cleaned before it was presented to her but Karin could still tell.
This decade (2015 to 2025) will be focused on my high #fantasy #steampunk world called Fedran (https://fedran.com/) including a good-sized wiki and a lot of cross-linking of characters, locations, and back-story.
I do have a fairly queer-friendly world but everything is written as unreliable narrators and there are biased characters who aren't. I also add good-sized content warnings in front of every novel, visible on the page (such as here: (https://fedran.com/sand-and-blood/) so I hope I'm clear.
This uses my arbitrary culture calendar which lets me use custom months and days and hours based on what I want for my #fantasy world.
And today someone actually asked about it (yay) so I wrote up a brief intro to my #TypeScript packages to handle it.
...write various programs to help writers with a technical bent (static site, CI-based publication system, writing analysis)
...do some graphics for my books
I just updated Flight of the Scions on Wattpad to include all the edits, split chapters, and everything up to chapter thirty-one. https://www.wattpad.com/story/148590653-flight-of-the-scions #steampunk #fantasy #ya #wattpad

This week is a sweet little chapter of Lily and Kendrick meeting together in the middle of a water-soaked road, completely with drawn swords and explosions. It ends well, as most of this novel, but it lets me enjoy my favorite weather: rain.
