Hello to new readers grimmwire, mallory_blog, and tulleandtiaras!
Cautious optimism, though seven weeks of afternoons monsoons = not exactly helping.
I went to the doctor, took a nap, went on an overnight date, came back, and I'm on BoingBoing. And Futurismic, and SFSignal, and Fantasy BookSpot, and Fantasy Book Critic, and...
Let me tell you, if you ever need to get the word out on a charity endeavor, Matt Staggs is the guy to tell.
So hi, new people! Blogathon starts at 9 AM on Saturday. In the meantime, check out the top post on my LJ to read other fiction by me. Feel free to sponsor me now if you'd like, and send me your e-mail receipt - we're having a drawing, and you could win Fabulous Prizes!
I'm trying to figure out how to describe my LJ's regular non-Blogathon content, and I really can't (need more coffee!)... maybe longtime readers can help out in the comments!
Also, I've allowed OpenID and anonymous commenting. You are welcome and encouraged to comment on the storybits! Comments keep a girl going 'round Hour 20. You are also welcome and encouraged to ooh and ah over the various artifacts; pics and links to auctions will be shown with the storybit they inspire. These are some very talented artists and craftspeople, and some of them made these artifacts specifically for this blogathon. Praise their hard work!
Above all, please support BARCC as best you can. Even if you don't have money to sponsor me or bid on the artifacts, you might know someone who's been looking for the perfect little box or necklace or tote bag. Post about this on your blog, e-mail it around!
Thank you. :)
* Doctor appointment went fine.
* Mamma Mia was sugar-coated crap, as I expected, but Hot Roboticist Boyfriend likes chick movies.
* Elayna's cat is snoring.
Blogathon stuff I gotta do
* Make a shopping list based on the spreadsheet Team Venture filled out.
* Get this house passably clean; locate lap desks and whatnot.
* Pimp out more Team Venturites.
* Answer e-mail.
But before that...
Shower, and work on story. Story has deadline. Deadline is soon after Blogathon. This is the first totally free day I've had in a while, and I must take advantage of it!
