Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack in everything
That's how the light gets in.
Here I am with another mostly-pointless update!
NaNoWriMo has begun, and so has work on Chapter 9 of Gravity. It's slow going, since I'm unfortunately needing to focus more on fretting over my schoolwork than on writing, BUT I still have high hopes. I'd really like for the entire story to be finished (and ready for editing) by New Year's.
I WAS planning on having the edited Chapter 2 ready by Halloween, but thanks to the Randomass New England Blizzard of Horror and 2011, that kind of... didn't happen. Neither did any of my other Halloween weekend plans.
Instead I just sat in my dark room, tried to clean up fridge leaks in the dark, and whined to
on the phone until it died and I went to sleep.
On the other hand? I did, purely by coincidence since I'd never taken the costume off, wander around outside on the PITCH-BLACK CAMPUS in the wee hours of the morning when nobody else was out, dressed as James Sunderland and armed with nothing but a really pathetic and dying flashlight that I haven't put new batteries in in four years.
This campus is usually lit 24-7, so even to someone like me who's used to walking everywhere by themselves in the middle of the night when there's no signs of life ANYWHERE except the occasional owl, it was genuinely disturbing to see the entire campus dark except for the few emergency lights still lit. Like stepping into.... get this... another world.ohmygod.
But anyway, for anyone looking to reread a much-improved chapter with better wordflow OR anyone who might be reading for the first time (I've gotten a few comments lately from people interested in picking the story up who hadn't looked at it before), CHAPTER 2
of Gravity has been edited and posted on the website!
... There's a few embarrassing typos at the end because I finished up during an all-nighter early in the week, but J-JUST IGNORE THOSE UNTIL I HAVE TIME TO FIX THEM...
Aaaand that's all for now.
I'd like to scan some of my painting projects at some point, but we'll see whether this week slaughters me with work or not.
