All things random and shiny
So I am definitely not dead.
Though you wouldn’t know from my lack of blogging. I entered a SFWA’s science fiction poetry contest, and *sniff* didn’t place. But since it is the beginning of me starting to actually submit things again, I’m happy just to have done something. Yay for things!
I also finished the second Doctor Who scarf. It knitted up so much faster the second time around, and I even added the fringe, which I didn’t add to the one I kept. I still have yarn left so I may do mini-scarf…or something.
I am going as the 4th Doctor for Hallowe’en! I have 2 weeks to figure out a sonic screwdriver, or rush order one from Thinkgeek.com
My kids and I made Triforce T-shirts for back-to-school. Easy and fun and geeky. All it took was cheap T-shirts, gold fabric paint, brushes, bristol board and an exacto knife.
We made shoes too. They were the first attempt and came out a bit gloppy, but for kid’s shoes that are going to get the crap beaten out of them at school? I am A-OK with that. Plus learning from mistakes…blah blah blah.
I have also been pointedly not working on my WIP. I’m writing an urban fantasy (an embryonic version can be seen under the WIP tab) and I’ve gotten hung up on ‘how the magic works’ and exactly what everyone can do with their powers. If anybody has any advice for that, I could use some. It’s all sort of devolved into wailing and gnashing of teeth (on my part).
I got a really cool Hobbit Moleskine journal and even that hasn’t inspired me to write. Bleh. But NaNoWriMo is coming up, so maybe…maybe…
It came with a cool map and everything.
Cheers all! Lets hope I can blog a bit more frequently now. I’ll leave you with a crappy vid of my cat!
