I have a new blog

      No Comments on I have a new blog

So my friends Zibb and Mal, and I have started a new blog where we’re talk science fiction and fantasy and mastering Ahri from league of legends, in all corners of the media world from books to movies to games. You can find us over at Conceptual Neighborhood and while we’re still ramping up, there’s some good stuff there. (PS:… Read more »

I heart Reddit Secret Santa

      2 Comments on I heart Reddit Secret Santa

I walked outside with bare feet and only a short-sleeved shirt on, no jacket. The temperature was about 44 degrees outside, which isn’t much for the East Coast contingent, but is starting to border on cold for Californians. By the end of the trip, I had regretted forgetting one of those items, and no, it wasn’t my shoes. It was… Read more »

Small and Far Away

      1 Comment on Small and Far Away

I need to sit down and write stuff. All sorts of stuff. Maybe, this weekend, if I get my homework done, such things will be able to happen. But the point of this post is to point to this: Small and Far Away, a one-shot fanzine created by members of the virtual fanzine lounge at the last Corflu. There’s a… Read more »

Rhyme & Paradox

      No Comments on Rhyme & Paradox

Yeah, that’s going to be the title of the fanzine I’m putting out. And I’m looking for contributions. I have the first year pretty much planned out as to topics. (I’m going to go approximately quarterly, so that means four topics.) The first topic is ‘Beginnings’; I’ll need things by New Year’s for assembly and layout in early January. I’ll… Read more »

Halfway Point

I finished my 11k challenge for the weekend, and now have somewhere just north of 35,000 words. I’m shooting to hit 50 next Sunday night, but I’m not entirely sure 15k in 7 days is entirely realistic. So we’ll leave that alone other than to open the betting pool for when I’m going to hit 50,000 words. In the challenge… Read more »

A Retaken Mint Plot

      No Comments on A Retaken Mint Plot

Yeah, that’s *my* mint farm! (Or it might just be an anagram for my first and last names.) Anyway, I need eight more donations of ten dollars each to get to The Night of Writing Dangerously, thanks to a few awesome friends. Can you help by donating? Also, since a picture’s worth a thousand words, here’s my wordcount per day… Read more »

I hate spammers and other flotsam

      No Comments on I hate spammers and other flotsam

I deliberately set the blog to email me when new comments are made. There’s three reasons for this madness: That’s the way LJ comments are handled, and I’ve liked being able to see them It allows me a quick response if there’s a comment that needs to be handled in a particular fashion It allows me to see when I’m… Read more »

Sunset

So it’s November. November means it’s NaNoWriMo month, which means that I’m running around like a crazy person. Then I stupidly said, “Ah why not, I’ll update my blog every day this month. It’s not like I don’t have enough to do.” Since I’m sure there’s folks out there that want to keep me honest, guess I’d better get the… Read more »

do not stick in ear

So I’m at work, and I’m reading up on how to write a functional specification, which seems to be my next task. Now, I’ve never written one of these before, so the Google is my friend. I stumbled across Joe Spolsky’s blog in my search for how to write one of these, and in reading the sample functional spec he… Read more »

papernet is expensive!

      1 Comment on papernet is expensive!

Yeesh, my new hobby is shaping up to be somewhat expensive. I wandered around Office Depot trying to get a bead on pricing, and yeesh. Mailing labels are about $10 for 250, manilla envelopes are about $10 for a hundred, and that’s not even counting the costs of printing and postage. I begin to see why does all his fanac… Read more »

flotsam, jetsam, and detritus from my mind

In no particular order: I’ve been looking forward to this weekend for a while. You see, while my parents and sister go out of town on a camping trip, I’m staying behind. This means that I can dig out my room which, although not quite matching the destruction wrought by my namesake hurricane, explains why my mom gave me the… Read more »

state of the katster

      1 Comment on state of the katster

The state of the katster is a rapidly falling apart California. Oh, wait, I screwed that up again, didn’t I? Well, here it is. I’m…I guess the best word for what I am is okay. It’s not awesome, but it’s not depressingly miserable either. I attribute the fact that it’s not the latter to the fact that I’ve actually, you… Read more »
