Odin's Day

Hello to new readers elenbarathi, tsdream, and tyler_durden451!

Still cautiously holding out hope. (The plane trip will wreck me, I know...)

Wind Tunnel Dreams
Thanks for your sponsorship, Nicole N! :)

I've created an LJ community for the Dreams - windtunneldream. Damn character limit. I'll still be posting all of the storybits here, but I may try to confine the meta stuff to the community so you're not overloaded with that. Join if you like! Add "wind tunnel dreams" as an interest if you like!

haikujaguar points out that January 1 is a crappy launch date, as people are hung over or on vacation or whatever. feste_sylvain suggested January 8 - the day after I conclude January's Wind Tunnel Dreams serial. That sounds good, and allows me time to meet with my webdude, rather than ZOMG I HAVE TWO DAYS TO SET ALL OF THIS UP. So okay. Less panic. Artists, let's call January 1 the deadline so the webdude and I have time to sort it all and get it put up. Thank you thank you thank you.

haikujaguar points out that I need to give you the best story I can, instead of rushing to "print"; she is, of course, correct. So I'll take my time (not two days!) and really sit down with Katrina. My problem there, I think, is that I'm so accustomed to write Katrina in middle age - I need to find that lost teenager.

* haikujaguar is selling prints of the mangrove dryad! $10 unmatted, $20 matted. Go for the matted - she does lovely matting, and she has a baby to keep in diapers, y0.
* "Hava Nagila (Baby Let's Dance)". Hava Nagila. In a school girl skirt. With a techno-ish chorus. And breakdancing. I'm dot kidding. Watch that.
* Visit my minicity! And increase its industry!
* AnthologyBuilder - hm. Sound like a good idea?

Daily Science
A powerful jet from a super massive black hole is blasting a nearby galaxy, according to new findings from NASA observatories. This never-before witnessed galactic violence may have a profound effect on planets in the jet's path and trigger a burst of star formation in its destructive wake.

Known as 3C321, the system contains two galaxies in orbit around each other. Data from NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory show both galaxies contain super massive black holes at their centers, but the larger galaxy has a jet emanating from the vicinity of its black hole. The smaller galaxy apparently has swung into the path of this jet.

Katrina's story:

Have spent my day cleaning, writing, and negotiating with a dream team of artists to help build Shayara, bit by bit. I have some really talented people on tap. Yay!

Evening Miscellany

I have reached the stage in everything I'm doing where I need to wait for other people to do things before I can do anything else. I'm not good at waiting. So instead of pacing, I am talking to LiveJournal. Hello, LiveJournal.

* Trip: I'm packing random stuff that I won't need tomorrow, but can't pack clothes because laundry needs to happen. I need to call morenasangre, but can't til Adam gets off the phone. He's getting us a room at the Disney All-Star Pop Century Resort. Because the Animal Kingdom Lodge, where morenasangre and farren are staying, would be $800 for two nights. o.O For $400 a night, they need to give me call girls, a massage, and a pony.

* Wind Tunnel Dreams: Is with layout goddess. That, I am at peace about.

* Shayara: Half the character portraits are assigned, and the ribbony bits and castle are assigned. (And Jessa's art for the borders of her story.) I am waiting on other artists and webdude.

Megahappy thing (besides WTD and people doing character portraits and stuff) - a very talented artist wants to do a minicomic with me once the ball's rolling on Shayara. Yay! I get to write comics again!

And I'm happy with how Katrina's story is coming... I think I'm managing to slip into her skin. One day in, and I'm already learning new stuff about her...
