Still some things I want to fiddle with before making some prints, but I’m satisfied with it right now.
Italian contemporary artist Livio Scarpella series ‘Ghost Underground’ (Bless Soul / Soul Damned) : Inspired by the works of Rococo sculptor Antonio Corradini’s (1668-1752) veiled ladies.
These are unreal.
Happy Mutation day!
Ah, yes. Our lives changed forever and we became the unlikeliest of families.
Weekly writing report:
Monday: 86 words. woo, impressive!
Tuesday: 590 words
Wednesday: 1122 words, on three separate things
Thursday: 521 words
Friday: 547 words
Sunday: 818 words
Total: 3684 words; daily average: 526
That is the lowest average of the month. You may recall that Thursday was the day of Lost’s car accident. All of that day’s writing happened before I heard about the accident—which left me in the middle of a ficlet. I managed to finish the thing on Friday, because I had some momentum, but both Friday and Saturday I couldn’t focus on any other writing. Today I started to feel back to normal again.
It is interesting to observe what I can reasonably write in a day, though I think the existence of the challenge, and even just the act of recording word counts, encourages me to write more, or at least try to write even on a difficult or tiring day. I’m not sure how that will hold up in October. October also stands to be a challenging month as far as work goes—I have a couple of major deadlines on November 1—so fic writing may have to take more of a back seat. We’ll see.
I don’t know how many of you know about the Yuletide fanfic exchange (and I’m going to feel very silly if it’s all of you), but just in case not:
Yuletide is a fanfic exchange focused on rare fandoms. For Yuletide purposes “rare” basically boils down to “has less than 1000 works over 1000 words, complete, in English, between ff.net and AO3 combined.” (There are some added considerations for complicated fandoms, but that’s basically it.) For examples, I’m nominating Elfquest (which has a couple hundred works), Redwall (which has a few hundred too), and the Juniper series by Monica Furlong (which has, as far as I can tell, one story). Last year I wrote what appears to be the only fic anywhere for Illusion by Paula Volsky. It’s a great deal of fun, and it’s lovely to write or receive a fic for a fandom so small you never thought you’d see fic for it.
I mention this now even though we’ve barely entered autumn, never mind Christmas, because right now is when you can nominate fandoms to be requested/offered. You can nominate up to three fandoms, with up to four characters each; those fandoms/characters are what people will use to specify what they want to get and what they’re willing to write during signups. So if you want to be able to nominate fandoms and characters for the exchange, now’s the time! Nominations close at 6pm UTC tomorrow.
More info is available on the Yuletide admin comm.
I did Yuletide last year, and it was a lot of fun!
would you hug donnie? i would X)
Cuties!!! Are those the build-a-bear turtles? I keep debating on whether or not we need to get one for Bug.
Yes, those are the Build-a-Bear turtles! They’re nice quality, nicely detailed and pleasantly squishy. They can use other Build-a-Bear accessories, as well as their own accessory weapons. I’ve been happy with them.
Ahhh thank you so much! That means a lot to me. So much happened during the season 2 finale I really wanted to work through some of those feelings, both for me and for the characters.
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA it’s so beautiful look at their faces aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah perfect
I am sure they were fighting over the remote while I wasn’t looking, but they’ll behave themselves for pictures.
One of my cats was curled up next to them when I came over to take the pic, but it was the skittish cat and he ran away as soon as I appeared.
