[Admin/OOC] Cast Pages Cleaned Up

I did some work cleaning up the Cast pages, getting better images and taking down characters I don’t really use. Quite a few of them — especially some of the rangers and Fairsong students — don’t have images because in-game they are very low level and wearing ugly questing gear.

Also updated with my new character in FFXIV! He looks exactly like the old one, but his name is different 🙂

[OOC] Uh, well…

That’s awkward. Especially after the scathing survey I filled out a couple months back.

But I mean, I really can’t resist checking it out without the $59.95 price tag, so I’ll at least go look at the zones and scratch any curiosity itch I might have had. But I’m not doing any dungeons. And I’m still not buying it, sorry guys.

Any BfA Alpha posts will be tagged as “alpha” and behind spoiler cuts, in case anyone doesn’t want to see them.

 

[OOC] Toofache

I have an extremely painful toothache (with accompanying infection) so for the past couple of days I have not been able to do anything other than lie in bed. Over the counter pain relievers aren’t working any more, and my prescription one hasn’t been filled yet. Hopefully it will this evening, and I’ll feel better tomorrow and can write again then.

[OOC] 2018 Goals

Writing:

  • Character of the Week – A story plus maybe art/screenshot of the featured character. Every week for the year of 2018.
  • Continue to write other shorts (mostly WoW, some horror/fantasy)
  • Edit Fangs of Frost (2017 NaNo)
  • Participate in 2018 NaNo

Sewing:

  • Sew at least two days per week.
  • List some plush for sale online.
  • Take advantage of social media to promote my plush.

Health:

  • Go to the gym at least 3 days per week.
  • Continue to limit soda and sugar.

Game stuff:

  • Art and maybe lore for all my Ice dragons on Flight Rising.
  • Design some adoptables for Flight Rising.
  • Create my master wishlist for mounts/mogs in WoW to farm for.

[OOC] NaNoWriMo 2017

Well, I talked myself into signing up for NaNo this year. If you don’t know what that is, it’s a challenge to write 50,000 words in the month of November. There’s a site here, if you’re interested in joining in:

https://nanowrimo.org/

It’s been a really long time since I’ve attempted it, and my life is a lot busier now than it was then. But I am fairly confident that I’ll be able to keep up with my word-count if I can set aside a set block of time every day.

However, because I have hopes to publish this book eventually, that means I won’t be able to post it here. It also means it’s not likely that I’ll have time to write much else during the month of November. I’ll try to queue up some interesting screenshots to look at in the meantime! I will also post updates, and maybe excerpts if I don’t feel like they’re too embarrassing!

 

[OOC] One Week to Go

The kids will be back one week from today. Their rooms are ready but I’m not sure if I am! I didn’t get everything done that I wanted, though I hope I’ll still be able to work on art when school starts again. It really depends on their schedules though.

I have been working on a few things though, today I made my eclipse viewing box. I haven’t seen glasses anywhere for sale here, so I made this using instructions online. I probably need to practice with it, I tried a bit earlier but it was pretty cloudy. (See my cat there in the background on the couch haha!)

box
I ordered a little set of unpainted wooden nesting dolls and they arrived today. They are great and were very inexpensive! I am still not sure yet what I want to do, I was thinking perhaps different colors of dragons or maybe druid animal forms. If they turn out well I might get others to paint — they would be a great craft for kids to do, too.

dolls
And I finished painting the Cassandra POP, but I want to give her a full day to dry before doing the sealant, and that’s when I’ll take her pictures. It was also pretty humid today, which isn’t good for spraying. Once it drops below 70% regularly, I need to prep my dragon doll for painting too.

[OOC] Road Trip!

I’m leaving tomorrow morning for a mini road trip to Vermont. I’m going to a doll meet, and also going to see two of my best internet pals and RP partners for the past uh… a lot of years. I’ll try to get some pictures!
