So, I’ve been meaning to do a news post for a while, and I’m finally getting around to it. And by news, I mean “things that would’ve been news if I’d posted about it at the time”. This post will be totally random both in terms of chronology and topic, and if we’re buddies and I’ve missed some awesome thing Continue reading Tribe News – All Kindsa Random! Also, New Zealand!
I don’t mention my collection of ball-jointed dolls often here on the blog, but tonight I just have to share a photo of my little polar bear doll (a Fairyland puki event faceplate, in case anyone wants to know). I’ve had here for over a year, but only just painted her and gosh, she turned out so cute. Here’s Metaphora Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Here, have a polar bear!
As I’ve mentioned before, I’ve been getting into tabletop RPGs lately. Naturally, one of the games on my “to play” list is the true giant of the genre, Dungeons and Dragons. I’m watching a few D&D streams right now, my favorite being the truly amazing Critical Role. The other day, I came up with a character concept that I absolutely adore Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – The Child, The Other
The last few days I have, much to my enjoyment, actually been checking things off of to-do lists. That’s always a lovely feeling. I’ve caught some sort of second wind with this university thing I’m working on and although it’s still slow-going, it’s at least going and with a bit more enthusiasm than before. Writing wise, it’s also been a Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Checkmarks!
Last night I went to a party. On the metro back I wrote this: Some nights, she felt cool. Not just cool for a geek, or cool for being her, but cool in some unqualified, objective way. Some nights, she felt sexy and, only halfway through her first cider, stopped worrying about whether it had been a mistake to wear Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Some Nights
Lately I seem to be making an extra effort when I write to express myself… prettily. I mean, I always want to write well, but I’m not always in that particular mood where I push myself a little extra, and go for a little extra flourish. I wouldn’t go so far as saying I’m in a purple prose mood, aesthetics clouding Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Psuedo-purple?
Monday-Tuesday this week, I was at a conference. So naturally I spent Monday evening thinking “I’ll do my blog tomorrow morning, I’m too tired now” and Tuesday morning I completely forgot. Anyhowsers, so my news from last week is: yay, I managed Camp! About 11k in the end, go me! I even managed to do my taxes (one day before Continue reading Twice Forthnightly – Non-worldbuilding Wednesday
Yeah, that’s what this month has felt like a bit so far. It’s weird, because I know I can write large quantities in fairly limited time. Heck, I made 75k last NaNo! But this time… man. 10k as a goal and I’m still struggling. To be honest, I think I’m partially struggling because my goal is so low. A few hundred Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Oh right, Camp!
Oh wow, it’s Friday… And it’s late. I’ve been to dinner at my parents’ house, and then I’ve been working on a birthday present for my bestie’s little girl, whose 2nd birthday party we’re going to tomorrow. It’s now 12:30 and my brain’s a bit too mushy for flash fiction I’m afraid. So instead of my usualy type of post, I’m Continue reading Flash Fiction Friday – Here, have some prompts!
Exciting news, guys! On Friday I’m playing in my first ever proper tabletop rpg! Wooh! I’ve played two one-offs before with throwaway characters but other than that I’m a newb. I’m playing with some total strangers over Skype and Roll20 so I’m a bit nervous but also very excited. Wish me luck! This week I have: Kept poking at Camp. I’m Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – Getting my roll/role on!
