Hey guys -- I've made a thing!
It's a podcast/audio drama called Soul Jar, following a teenage necromancer.
It would be AMAZING if you would listen.
I worked really hard on this and I'm equal parts proud and sick.
Okay, I've gone and had a peek and I think I'm going to try tootplanet.space for a bit. Small number of users (who apparently make up a large portion of people I already love following?)
Also, the UI is cute as all heck
Helping a friend begin the novel query process for the first time. It's really lovely to use all this damn query knowledge for something good.
writing pet peeve
Shushing people by putting YOUR finger on THEIR lips. Such a ridiculous invasion of space! It looks ridiculous visually, and also makes me think whoever did it is a total dick.
Sometimes this is portrayed as sexy/romantic? I don't get it. It makes me shudder every time. I cannot imagine this happening in real life.
Pathfinder today! 4/5 party members went to buy a suspiciously cheap house while the 5th got arrested for trying to break into a costumier. He hit the rumour mill while in jail and found out some weird things about the house the rest of the party was signing the contract for.
How did they find out about the house for sale, you ask? Well, they were approached while the (goblin) bard loudly talked about how rich they were, of course!
'No! NO! Bad boy. No biting!'
She hauled it off her cowering apprentice.
The apprentice shuddered. 'I don't think I'm ready yet.'
'Nonsense. You just need to take a firm hand with it. Oh, and give it something to chew.' She produced a strip of dried meat from the folds of her blood-crusted robes. 'Here boy! Want some jerky?'
The beast's mouth lolled -- she popped the jerky inside and patted his bald, flaking head.
'See? He's a good zombie, really.'
May as well make my first Mastodon post a deep and meaningful one.
So, here's something I realised. And it IS a question cos I don't yet know the answer.
Does anyone in the StarWars universe ever deify or anthropomorphise "The Force"?
It feels like humans over the ages have always tried to represent things that they can't control as being controlled by another being of some sort. But The Force remains just a force?
Ack! I turned down work for like the first time ever. It was the very difficult client I knew would be awful to work with. I read his manuscript and it had ... questionable content. And that was the tipping point: I said no!
Still feel kind of weird. But my other client just sent me a lovely and helpful message, reminding me of how I prefer to work and why I turned down Mr God's Gift to writing.
I write about creepy necromancers with hope and humour.
Writer, narrator, gamer, dungeon master.
It turns out that I am a weird person on the internet.
