New Instance, Who Dis? Show more
I figured, being a writer -- or at least faking it well -- I should make an account over where the other writers are. Not that there aren't writers where I was. Or that there aren't people here who aren't writers. it's just that, if you're going to name a Masto instance "writing.exchange," the presumption is that there will be writers here and writing will at least be the subject of some discussion. That may just be an assumption, though. Hi!
Free Comic Book Day Show more
Hey, everybody, it's Free Comic Book Day, which is a huge event for all those local comics shops out there. If you've got a local favorite, today's a great day to head down and see all the new offerings coming out. I'm actually kinda sad because even though I'm on an amazing camping trip, I'm missing the chance to go to my local store, Phoenix Comics and Games in Capitol Hill. You should all totally go in my place and check them out today!

I had a story unfold itself in my head. I have got to get this New Tibet story off my plate so I can get back to writing my own stuff.
Oh, goodness, lookee here: http://www.circlet.com/call-for-submissions-safe-sane-consentacle/
... and that turned out to be a lot less painful than I expected it to be. Awesome.
Opening the suggested/requested edits file from an editor for a submitted story.

I was at the dentist this morning getting a deep cleaning, and they numbed half my face to get under the gumline. I told the nurse it felt like she'd turned my face to stone.
I now have a story seed for a medieval plastic surgeon that uses petrification potions, sculptor's tools, and modeling clay to give people their perfect bodies. Of course, no magical ritual is without risk, and side effects do happen.... #writing
Headache. Two more stories to critique. We can get through this.
Okay, over halfway done on my critiques. I may actually be done by the weekend if I can keep this pace going.
