Look, I'm from Florida. This is pure strange Northern magic to me. Water! Freezes! And falls from the sky! Soft and fluffy! Wow!
I first saw snow when I was 16, in the wilderness survival camp. And the wild rumpus began, I tell you what. I squealed and bounced and danced. They gave us "Indian names" (yeah I know that's crazy stupid cultural appropriation stuff, but I was not programming my own torture chamber here) about a month later, and mine had "snow" in it because of that dance.
Yes, I'll be sick of it by winter's end. But today it makes me happy.
Happy birthday to envoy and sealgair!
Happy early birthday to puddin666 and katfireblade, who both advance a year over the weekend!
About the same as yesterday. But yesterday I wore actual clothes for the first time this week, so hey, could be worse. Still weak, still with the hacking cough.
Getting Things Done
Wrote a bunch of letters yesterday. Tore through the backlog of magazines - literally, as this involves tearing project pages out of ReadyMade. I've been slowly organizing knitting stuff all week - reorganizing my Ravelry queue, bagging yarns I need for certain projects together, et cetera. Yesterday I cleaned out the three-drawer organizer in my office closet and got my yarns and needles organized in there, so they're not spilling out all over the floor. Did a bunch more office organizing - the stuff I've been threatening to do for a while. There's still a lot to do. But I have been careful about pacing myself.
* I think I'm stalling on PYH because Cicatrix wants out. I kinda did not want to write Cicatrix yet! Wanted PYH first. But we'll see. I guess because PYH is more along the lines of what I want to be writing; Cicatrix is one shot of sheer darkness that is not indicative of my other work, I don't think.
* I think the germinating short story "Happy Hour at the Tooth and Claw" wants to be a comic series. *headdesk* I have setting, I have characters, but I have too many threads of story for a single short story.
* I am wondering if I can somehow use Kickstarter to back my writing. Thoughts?
