Reindeer Ornament #001

What do you do when a friend asks for ornaments for her birthday? …Break out the art supplies, of course! 😉

This little guy was sculpted, molded, cast, and painted all within a week. He was my emotional recovery project from the doggie destruction of my 2017 NaNoPaiMo horse and it was nice to get my fingers in Sculpey again.

For the very first copy I went with a traditional reindeer color and snowy pine trees against a night sky. Because I am me, I also started up a few fantasy copies that are lounging half-finished on the workbench.

Random Fandom

Length/Rating: 100 words, PG, Gen
Pairing/Warnings: None, but Steve/Bucky if you bring your own subtext
Summary:  Written for 100words Prompt #071 – Illusion.
Notes:  Canon divergent, because Civil War was all sorts of stupid in terms of characterization and I’d like to think they worked out their issues an Bucky came home to the tower. The title is from Mary Elizabeth Frye’s poem Do Not Stand at My Grave and Weep.

NaMoPaiMo 2017 Doggo Disaster

November had come to a close (with very little artwork accomplished) and I was raring to go! The art desk was clean, the lightbox was rebuilt, and it was the first weekend after NaNo!

…And then my dog ate my NaMoPaiMo (National Model Painting Month) project from last year. And that pretty much killed my ability to do anything creative at all.

It’s one thing to know on some low level that artwork is a temporary thing, but there’s a certain pessimism that comes with having to embrace the fact that you put hours of work into something that can be destroyed in seconds. *sighs*

Anywho.

Saturday Story Prompts

eBooks full of plot bunnies are only a click away!

1. They swaddled the bottle in torn silks and bloodied cotton, remnants of safety stolen from the dead.

2. “Disconnection is not advised,” chimed the door locks as they overrode the safety mechanisms.

3. Worms as thick as his thumb climbed the fence posts as the morning fog rolled in, staying just high enough the toxic mists to survive without catching the crows’ attention.

4. The office swarmed with positive quotes and inspiring views through false windows, but no matter how cheerful the setting they still had spend eight hours a day calling desperate people and telling them ‘no’.

5. Beads roll off the desk in a cascade of color and noise followed a heartbeat later by a pack of kittens with more pounce than sense.

[YANS] Yet Another New Story

The only thing she knows is true anymore is that the dragon needs to die.

This is the daily(ish) posting of my 2017 NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) fantasy novel. [YANS] is short for Yet Another New Story, so it’s new worlds and new civilization ahead! Since last year worked out well, this year’s attempt will also be a combination of MuseFic and proper rough draft. The story will be completed at the end of November… even if the story isn’t really complete. 😉

Read at your own risk/amusement: There will most likely be spelling and grammatical errors afoot as well as flat out bad writing, info dumps, plot holes, contradictions/retcons, uneven characterization and pacing.
