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!
Rough draft of my story for the New Tibet anthology is finally done! Word count ~6400. Not bad for two days! If only I could make this my day job.
Drugs, Magic Show more
Okay, _that_ was a good and productive session. Four medicated cinnamon buns baked, one _bird_ baked, one dragoness revealed, and 5087 words written.
It needs editing, but my New Tibet entry is done.

"Like, where do you get your ideas?" Show more
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

Finally, she has walked away from Omelas.
I hope she knows where she's going.
Anthology ideas (Weed mention) Show more
I had one of those fever-dream ideas for a book. This would be hell to pull off but it'd be amazing if I could do it. I don't want to spoil it, because if I do it, it'll be awesome.
