Imagine a modern pyramid, glass-sided, in the middle of a major city, on the waterfront.
How steep are its sides?
This is my present #worldbuilding/#writing dilemma. If it's too steep it looks weird; if it's too big the lower floors' interior volume is unwieldy and outside window-walls are unusably shallow.
Please comment; this is too free-form for a poll.
The sex story is now 11k words; I wrote another sex scene, and there's still one sex scene to go before the conclusion.
The non-sex story now has a much better idea of the scale of the building's interior, thanks to some found blueprints, and now I'm redrafting the entire bloody convention center on paper.
The sex story is now 8800 words long and I still have one sex scene left to write; the nonsex story is but 6090 words.
On the other end of things, I've built a first draft of the illustration model in Minecraft, and am debating how to proceed with that as an art reference, because it's bigger than the draw fog will let me see.
What is the name of the floor above the floor that's level with the surrounding streets?
I'm still at the point in the #writing process where the month-old everyone-lives happy-ending sex-scene AU crackfic short story is a kiloword longer than the canon story I've been working on writing and illustrating for the last year or so.

A heist in which the victims's shredder blades are replaced with rollers, so that papers fed into the shredder are passed, unmutiliated. #worldbuilding
How odd that there is no Seven-Ten List from a Utopian publication. Cousins I can forgive; there's probably a law against such a thing. But surely Utopia has such a list? #TerraIgnota
Are you interested in a federated alternative to Goodreads that doesn't use Amazon?

Man, that #Lego part #27168 is hard to get, but wonderfully useful for building certain types of sets. https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=27168#T=C&C=85
Pop-press coverage of #Jedi practising #Jediism is interesting. I should look more into how it is constructed and practised, to better inform the #Bionicle #neoreligion work. https://irradiate-space.tumblr.com/tagged/bionicle/chrono
Also from the Travellers' Guide to Esoteric Locations:
"Null Island: A Guide for the Misguided, 2010 edition"
Part of a series of tourists’ guides to ephemeral, liminal, temporary, or otherwise abnormal places, this book is noteworthy for the length and depth of its coverage of a buoy off the coast of Africa.
From the Travellers' Guide to Esoteric Locations:
"St Trimble's Island: A Guide for the Misguided, 2016 edition"
Part of a series of tourists’ guides to ephemeral, liminal, temporary, or otherwise abnormal places, this book is noteworthy for containing the only known published map of St. Trimble’s Island as well as a detailed investigation into the island’s economy, ecosystems, and culture.
Presently researching book covers for travel guides, so that I can get the St. Trimble's Island and Null Island entries in @lightsail_library some cover images.
"Bubble and Squeak" by David Gerrold and Ctein is a wonderful short story/novella thing that got included in Rich Horton's "The Year's Best Science Fiction and Fantasy 2019".
It's about a gay couple prepping for the impact of a 300-foot tsunami upon Los Angeles, California. #recommendation
