Another character sample–Jenestra of Drake’s Hammer & Elise di Michaux

Another character sample–Jenestra of Drake’s Hammer & Elise di Michaux

Okay, these two are from my first book (third in the trilogy but first written). They are friends and traveling companions. Both are majii; Jen picks up on languages, both spoken and written, unusually fast, while Elise is considered “twice-favored” as she is both a healer and an empath. They are also of different kindreds. Jenestra is a dwarf (called dwermer in my story) and Elise is human. Jen protects Elise to some extent. She is a fighter, handy with…

A little fangasm!

A little fangasm!

Within just a day, I’ve had the pleasure of hauling out my Thunderbirds knowledge (with all the attendant books and other paraphernalia) to help a couple of fellow fanfic writers and personal friends. It was certainly fun, especially all the stuff about Alan Tracy’s educational background. Add to this my posting the first chapter of one of my short stories (Burning Muses) at AO3 and uploading a new post to my RP, and I’m full of Thunderbirds at the moment….

The World filter – someone doesn’t like it

The World filter – someone doesn’t like it

Someone has left a couple of anonymous reviews on The White Winds, as well as on my friend TimeGuardian’s latest story, excoriating me for putting my movie-verse story in the TV-verse section using the World filter. I think I know who it is: someone who has very recently returned to the fandom after several years away, and who thinks the movie sucks. She’s also someone who I went head to head with at a fandom RP. Because she’s been out of the…

A quiet little milestone

A quiet little milestone

The Girl got her beginner’s permit today. She needed it by tomorrow for Driver’s Ed, so when she got home from school, we boogied on up to the Dept. of Motor Vehicles so she could take the "Knowledge Test". I’d already printed out the necessary forms and had filled in (with typing where possible) the information. Before we left, we double-checked all the identification she had to bring with her: Social Security card, birth certificate, and proof of residency (in…

I hate it when my muse goes wandering off….

I hate it when my muse goes wandering off….

I’ve got two small portions of Overtures 7 in the can. That’s it.   I haven’t felt this dry on a story in a long time. I have other scenes in mind for later, and I probably should write them out. I’ve been betaing some things, and need to do some others. I’m going nuts at IR:TNP with one of the writers.   Sigh.   I need to get things going with this fic so I can  get back to The…

Finally finished a chapter!

Finally finished a chapter!

It’s taken so long it seems, but I’ve finally finished chapter 4 of Overtures. My muse has been really stingy on my fanfiction but very giving on my RP stuff. Maybe it’s because the RP stuff is short and the chapters are long, and part of a longer arc, I’m not sure. Now I need to work on The White Winds, which has over 6000 hits.   The Girl is at her cousin’s for the long weekend and I’m happy…

Getting a trickle

Getting a trickle

And I don’t mean rain from now Tropical Storm Katrina, who is supposed to give us some rain this evening. I mean creative trickle, one that sort of dried up in the middle of the rescue scene I wrote for The White Winds. The chapter ended up being very, very short, and I had to rewrite the beginning of it when betareader Liz pointed out what could have been a pretty massive gaffe on my part. Whew! I’m glad she’s…

Waiting for the dam to break…

Waiting for the dam to break…

I am of the decided opinion that my muse is on vacation. It’s been hard, really hard, to write much of anything over the past few days. A paragraph or two on The White Winds, and more on Overtures, but I had a deuce of a time trying to figure out what was wrong with the rescue venue in the first place! Now I’ve got it, and it’s unique, and I think, will be funny (maybe).  We’ll see. But even writing…

I hope I can recover my brain here.

I hope I can recover my brain here.

Had my brainstorming session with the gals; it was okay. Created a new timeline for IR:TNP. Posted chapter 35 because C reviewed, then Frankie did. Amanda did, too, but it was a bit of siliness… Don’t know what I’m gonna do with that girl!   The Girl’s gallery has been updated at last. Hubby is sleeping; gotta make dinner for the crew tonight so he doesn’t have to.   The transcript will wait until tomorrow and so will the birthday…

Masquerade 31 is online

Masquerade 31 is online

My muse has been smokin’ today! I posted at CIR, Thunderfan, two posts at IR:TNP, and a chapter of Masquerade. The chapter was much shorter than usual, but still, it was important. Now onto chapter 32, but after some sleep…   I felt better Monday. My feet stil tingled some and I was doing the neuropathy dance a bit, but not to the extent of Sunday. Got to bed around 1 a.m. on Monday and couldn’t sleep until I massaged…
