Happy birthday to catvalente!
Hello to new reader lessthanthree!
Meh. Didn't get to nap yesterday. Got to bed at a reasonable time, at least; we'll see how I do when I wake up. (Am on first cup of coffee.) Legs seem mostly recovered from Sunday.
After coffee, raffle stuff. *determined nod* That way I can pack up what I can and get it in today's mail.
Thank you guys so much for your patience.
For your thoughts on my big writing process posts. I think I got all tangled up in this in part because of my solitude; outside of cons, I don't really have a community of writers to talk this stuff out with. I have a wonderful community of fabulous people who mostly don't get the whole writing thing; they read and enjoy it, but they don't see the spinning gears behind the scenes. They see stories, but not business. I need someone in my world who sees the business, too. Just for the occasional coffee and reality check.
* "Verse Before the Flood is cluegirl's attempt replace all of the books, among other things, she lost in an epic house flooding. Check her LJ for details! She's also doing Tarot readings.
* "Strange Angel" is by murnkay, who is uniquely messed in the head. In an entertaining way. :)
* The music of my high school years, first marriage, and ramblings through Vegas. Woooow. (h/t mgrasso!)
* Black Dawn, a postapocalyptic web serial.
* Shinies! An elisem sale!
* Hal Duncan's thoughts on Elizabeth Gilbert's TED talk.
Since its launch last June, NASA's Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope has discovered a new class of pulsars, probed gamma-ray bursts and watched flaring jets in galaxies billions of light-years away. Today at the American Physical Society meeting in Denver, Colo., Fermi scientists revealed new details about high-energy particles implicated in a nearby cosmic mystery.
Pick a character, a place, a circumstance, whatever. I'll choose one and spin out a vignette.
Raffle, writing, other stuff on this week's master to-do list. Not going to Diesel tonight, because Elayna has her Spring Concert! Which means a mad hunt for her black-and-white band garb and red chorus polo when she gets home. But also means I get to see Elayna rock out tonight. So yay. :)
