Our new friend Apollo. :) We’re just borrowing him for our upcoming vineyard gig, but I can already tell it’s gonna be hard to not get attached. He’s a cutie.
Those feathers are so smooth I thought it was a CG render at first.
Also, handsome bird is handsome.
Amazing! you’re so good!
Psh, naw. ;3; Just tons and tons of effort and time and my life is like 80% devoted to this thing, ahhhhhh.
I might also be sharing some snippets soonish if anyone’s interested.
I’m fairly certain I’m one of the most inconsistent bloggers ever. The last time I posted was in June–right before I decided to abruptly sign up for Camp NaNoWriMo and write 30,000 words over the month of July (aka 1k a day). I never followed up after July had ended–so sorry about that!–but in case anyone was wondering, I totally achieved my goal. And believe it or not: what I’d churned out was…
Guess what? I checked the official word count for my Boot Hill manuscript tonight and I’ve finally hit 50,000 words of salvageable work!
I’m a little under 1/3 of the way done with the first draft of the first book.
based on extensive observation, I believe that my cats have only a tenuous grasp on how much of my body is “me”
It’s like, Head: definitely Big Friend, note eyes and noise-hole.
Hands: 90% certainty of Big Friend, 10% possibility of toy. comprised of two main parts, the rubby-rubby and the wriggly-scritchers. does Big Friend control them with her mind? the mechanism is unclear.
Arms, aka “Cuddle Snakes”: do these help Big Friend’s hands from getting lost? good place to sit.
Torso: ??? we have no idea what this is. smells like Big Friend but serves no observable purpose. treat as terrain.
Legs, see: “The Lap Conundrum”: 25% chance of Big Friend, totally uninteresting. WHEN LAP: 90% chance of Big Friend, excellently warm. where does the lap go? our finest cat scientists seek the answer to this mystery, but no breakthroughs as of yet.
Feet, aka “Twitchy-Kickers”: 10% chance of Big Friend, 90% chance of foe. all attempts to communicate have ended in hostility. Destroy on sight.
This is the personal blog of M. Weaver (aka spectrosity elsewhere on the interwebs), author of novel-in-progress Boot Hill! Hi, how do you do?
This blog is mostly dedicated to reblogging music, games (Phoenix Wright, Pokemon), films/shows I love (LotR/Hobbit), book reviews/critiques, as well as general stuff I get a kick out of. Occasionally I will post my own writing or information on the characters of Boot Hill.
Feel free to ask me anything about myself or Boot Hill (as long as your questions are not super spoilery). I like answering questions!
