SillyMe - Photognome

Monday

Happy Talk Like A Pirate Day! Arrrr!

Administration
Happy birthday to beldar, mightyafrodite, and to the luscious photognome!

Happy anniversary to theferrett and zoethe!

Hello to new readers cloverbee, duxwig, and richneps!

Medical
Exhaustion + nausea, and some mild coordination issues. Yesterday was a Bad Meds Day. EDIT: Brainfuckery.

This Weekend
Much yummy sex, but also much mindmapping. Very much of the good.

I am now way behind on *everything*, though.

Holy Wars
vi or emacs?

Short post because coordination issue means I keep typoing, and I'm sick of doubling back. :)
Legs

Anatomy

I was reclining nude on the bed, postcoital and happy, and docorion traced the muscles in my stomach with his fingers. "You'd make a great surface anatomy model," he said.

"Would I?"

"Yes. Everything is very clear. The good part about you being so skinny." And he traced muscles and named them. Traced bones and named them. "...are you getting bored?"

"No! Please, keep going."

He showed me where a subclavian line would go and why and told me what you'd do with it. Pointed out things on me you wouldn't see on most people. Just talked for about an hour, fingers skating over my body, naming parts of me.

I could do this for hours, for years.

Quotes

One that docorion pointed out to me, in light of my construction of social mores and eptness as an adult, my mental workarounds - and also my masking of the worst of my cognitive side effects:

"Nobody realizes that some people expend tremendous energy merely to be normal."
~Albert Camus


And one I found while Googling for it:

"You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something, sometime in your life."
~Winston Churchill
Hearth

And in the realm of *finally*...

Mailed the damn comics. First officially-published bit of Shayara. So happy to see the ass end of it for now. Aaagh. So if you ordered a comic from me, expect it in, umm, however long it takes Media Mail. If you wanted it signed, it is signed. In shiny silver pen. And the Shawn short-short story is included.

magenta_girl, vanuslux, and kungfoogirl, pick yours up anytime; you all know where I live!

What's next for Shayara? Publication in trade-paperback form. Not doing issues - going straight to graphic novel. This will not be soon, as m0usegrrl needs time to draw, and there'll be lots to draw. I'm looking at hopefully doing three trades to go with the three acts of the story, this first one being the search for Julia; we'll see how much story ends up being in there, though. May need to break it up more.

In the meantime, you may see short stories with incidental illustrations. Because it's not like I can not write it. :)

What's next for my writing overall? A focus on Places You Haunt and Walking on Water, after I finish up the Blogathon incentives.
