Finished my major 12 illustration (which turned into 13 illustrations somehow) commission around 1 a.m.

Tonight there will be Downton Abbey viewings galore. I have earn it!

Writer's Block: Happy birthday, savvy?

Which film starring birthday boy Johnny Depp is your favorite, and why?

Sleepy Hollow.

It was the only one where I managed to forget, even for just a little while, that he was Johnny Depp and not the character. :)
Taken from just about everyone ever, it's another meme! If you are in an indulgent mood and would like to entertain me, please name a character I'm familiar with, and I will tell you:

* How I FEEEEEL about this character
* All the people I ship romantically with this character
* My non-romantic OTP for this character
* My unpopular opinion about this character
* One thing I wish would happen / had happened with this character in canon.

It is a GO!

RELAUNCHING THE PROJECT: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/986021426/miki-and-sir

Please support the stories! I will continue to post things up on the blog. Some of it will just be progress updates, but there will also be one shot stories and illustrations as well as giveaways over at http://mikiandsir.blogspot.com

Any questions can be directed to our formspring! http://www.formspring.me/mikiandsir
You can ask the characters questions as well. Just put the character name in parentheses or something so I know who should respond!

Thank you for your continued support! Please stay tuned!

(Posting this everywhere today, sorry!)
 I am having one of those weeks were I am writing almost exclusively MUSH. Here is what I have written:

- Scene from the endish of the Western Faeries story, in which Tobias makes a speech and steals a kiss.
- Ivan, Prince of Izlandia, has written an essay about the long term political benefits of marrying for love (in his case only) even though he does not have any one in particular in mind. (He is merely trying to evade marrying the most obnoxious princess in the universe for short term political benefits.) 
-Scene from the Knights story (co-written with Jo and Kate) in which Sir Theo is rescued and also will not shut up. Cuddling and wincing ensues. 
 
Currently musing about a scene in which Lady Anne kicks her pet goose out of the house for not treating his lordship with proper respect. (Really, being a goose is no reason to ignore social hierarchy!) 
 
Maybe next week I will write something serious and plotty, with no lovey-dovey stuff.

As Stolen From AmbrMerlinus

The BBC thinks folks may have read only 6 of the following 100 books. Betcha we can beat that! Copy this list. Bold the titles you've read. Italicize the titles you've read parts of or excerpts from. Feel free to wisecrack in (parenthesis) to heighten the entertainment value! Note that I'm not responsible for certain redundancies or ideological biases within the list. I merely copy and paste.

Read more... I certainly do. :)Collapse )

Writer's Block: Happy, happy, joy, joy

Which song makes you happy every time you hear it, and why?




Because all I want is Music! Music! Music!

Writer's Block: Songs of patriotism

If you were a country, what would be your national anthem?


Let's be honest:

Update on Life

It seems like every time I promise to take on a blogging project... real life picks up and leaves the internet in the dust. So: "Pride and Prejudice" is delayed- not forgotten! My duties at the new office space are increased as my uncle (the building owner) is out of town so all printer/copier questions fall on me.

In addition to that there is plant care and two art commissions. :) All good things, no complaints! It just makes it difficult to blog anything regularly. (Tumblr so does not count. It's like blogging for the lazy, reposting everyone else's stuff.)

The Tobias & Ryan story is taking off in a major way, as I have been left alone with a notebook more often than a computer lately. (I am very much in favor of handwriting first drafts because it allows for REALLY rereading and editing as I type.) The story very much needs a title though... because "Curse Bracelet" "Tobias and Ryan" "That Story With The Faeries" and "Tryan" are not cutting it any more. Actually, it seems a little weird that there has never really been a title for it since most of my older writings had titles from day one.

"Miki and Sir" is still happening, it is yet another case of "delayed due to real life." Really, I cannot bring the internet with me everywhere. It just would not be healthy or productive to do so. This is probably why I never could make webcomics work for me, among other things. Oh well.

Also, if you are at all into D&D and other such role playing games you should check out my pal Foster's awesome Kickstarter project: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/fosterranney/parefids-tomb-an-internally-consistent-adventure-m
It looks totally awesome as far as I can tell. :)
Dear Live Journal:

My art can still be found here http://bombshellcat.blogspot.com/

New stuff is being added fairly regularly now. :) Mostly for personal projects ("Miki and Sir" as well as that fantasy story with Tobias and Ryan) but occasionally commissions, trades and, oh yeah, fan art.

Cheers!
