Happy Thursday, Aledan Merfolk! It’s been another wild week around here. As some of you already know, my dad started chemo this week and I had a little trouble wrapping my head around it at the beginning of the week. And then I came home on Tuesday to a living room full of dog poo. Poor Boudin’s having some tummy issues right now, and he’s been waking me up every two hours at night to run outside 😦 I’ll spare you the disgusting details.
In all this madness, I did manage to finish my CP project for Juliana. And since she’s my sentence-prettier for StO, I studied how she wrote her sentences while I read her wip, and am now trying to apply it to StO (with her line edits). It’s slow going at the moment, and I’ve only finished the first three chapters, but once I get the hang of it I should be speeding along in no time.
I also read a book! Well, a novella. For those of you who’ve heard me gush about how great THE IRON DRUID CHRONICLES are, a new novella came out this week as part of THREE SLICES. It’s about tyromancy, which is apparently divination through the coagulation of cheese. And who doesn’t like cheese? Cheese that can tell the future?! And talking dogs! It doesn’t really get better than Oberon the wolfhound making cheese-y jokes 🙂 I haven’t read the other two slices yet, but I plan to start the second one today…
On my new Galaxy S6, because challenging weeks require retail therapy. And also because my free update date was yesterday and my S3 stopped charging consistently months ago. The S6 comes with a wireless charger, and I’m head over heels for that feature. No more plugging my phone in until the charging port doesn’t work anymore! I also got a free tablet with the phone, so I have lots of new toys to play with (read: lots of new things to install the Nook app on).
Tomorrow the fifth part of Ocean’s Story will go up. Last week I threw a princess off a cliff, so you’ll want to return to see what happens to her (she hasn’t gone SPLAT quite yet!). And I have a beautiful merpony for you this weekend!
Finally: challenging weeks call for powerful music, and this song has gotten me through a challenging week:
if you are afraid, give more.
if you are alive, give more now.
everybody here has seams and scars.
so what. level up.
