1. Long ago, when the mountains were sharp fangs against the sky, Man fell from space.

2. Everyone cries out in armchair quarterbacking, but none of them do a thing to stop him.

3. The ghosts of neon lights illuminates the alleyway, dim echoes of past that seep through as her wards fade.

4. Nothing slows a computer for long, their algorithms churn faster than we can measure and they are masters of the possible.

5. “Caught too many of them again. I warned you last time: you’ll have to throw these back or pay the fine.”

[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.

Canva and the Art of Design

Canva vs Me

Canva vs. Me

I may be a passable artist, but I am a horrible, horrible graphic designer. (As anyone who had to suffer through my attempts at designing eBook covers is well aware.)

Thankfully I got extremely lucky and stumbled across Canva which has kindly led me out of the darkness and into the social media acceptable light.

Since they’ve made such a big impact on me, I thought I’d drop them a blog post and share the love in case anyone else hasn’t found them yet! 🙂

Fat Dolphins #001-003

Behold the majesty of the sea!

These little guys were part of the ’round 2′ in the Fat Animal Magnet Christmas present lineup and I can’t remember if I made them or the Orcas first. (This is why I really shouldn’t wait a year to do posts! *facepalm*)

This was another sculpture that ended up needing some epoxy work after casting. For some reason the tips of the tails just didn’t want to cast, no matter how much I tried to de-air-bubble them. Hopefully once the second round of sculpting is done on it the new mold will be a bit better. 🙂
