I missed posting last week (sorry Mom) because I spent the Day with friends, and then the weekend creating a story in the Rifts multiverse with more friends. My character ended up being without language, which I didn’t expect, but I worked on a soundboard so she could still communicate. I am often too shy/embarrassed to put on a voice for a character, but I had been planning on it for this one. Turned out her voice was mostly birdsong, which was interesting and entertaining (I hope) for everyone.

NaNoWriMo is about to end, and while I didn’t “finish” or “win,” I did learn about myself this past month, and I have some ideas to move forward with. This includes scheduling writing time, but not beating myself up for missing it. Journaling more. And a card writing project for Advent. I’m also looking at venues for posting more of my writing online.

In other news, Dissolution papers have been filed, and accepted (only took two tries). My job is stable and steady, and I’ve managed 8 of 15 usability tests/interviews. Thanksgiving with friends three nights last week was wonderful. And I am so grateful for my friends and family who support my crazy life.

In reading news… I finished Death’s Mistress by Terry Goodkind. I’m now listening to City of Brass by S.A. Chakraborty. I’ve also been reading comics on Comixology thanks to The Wednesday Club on Geek and Sundry Twitch/Project Alpha. Classic Deadpool V. 1, Runaways V. 1, and Love is Love. Planning to try Saga and Fables next.

Happy New Year to Everyone!

I gamed with friends all weekend. First Rifts and then a handful of board/card/dice games.  Now, I am finishing the night watching football in front of the fireplace.

I hope you all have a wonderful, happy, and healthy 2018.

Late night post. It’s been a cold and dreary week down here in Ohio. Full of lovely storms, at least, and some nasty ones, too. But it’s COLD today.

Had a nice weekend with friends, played a game or two and chatted a lot. We’re gearing up for May, so this was a nice relaxed event. This coming weekend is a Rifts gaming marathon with my Tuesday group. We’re playing in the New West, with a wide variety of characters. I’m playing a stealthy healer/protector mage/psionicist. (WordPress doesn’t know how to spell that word, but neither do I.)

I’m a little over half way through Knife of Dreams, and will make a lot more progress at work tomorrow. The loan period is about to expire, so hopefully, I’ll get it done. Not sure what’s next, though the reading challenge at work is a book by a comedian. I’ve done all the ones of that genre that I wanted to, so I’ll have to look a bit harder to find another.

Hope everyone is well. Until next week, stay safe and love freely.
