Monday and the cycle starts again.

9 11 2009

Weather: High: 64º & cloudy. WTF is up with this temperature rollercoaster?

So– First up: NANOWRIMO Day 9: Wordcount total: 17231. So still ahead of the curve.

Just ordered this compilation for myself:

Sepiachord Companion Includes such fantastic bands as Vernian Process, Jill Tracy & Abney Park (who according to the Good Captain, will have a new album out in a couple weeks, thank the Steam Gods!)

Brian’s still waiting on official confirmation for a freelance position, that could lead to a full-time job. We’re keeping our fingers crossed.


Okay–work & writing have sucked out what little brain matter I came in with. Sigh. Off to the train and more writing + CASTLE!ZOMG! tonight.

Nano Day 2 & Other various cack & Nonsense.

2 11 2009

Weather: High: 54º and rainy. Will be in the 40s the rest of the week. Welcome to November!

Been watching this a lot over the weekend…

Desperate Romantics

Lots of  Aidan Turner. Mostly being a debauched hedonist with little or no admirable character or morals. And naked.  Just how I like him. 🙂 (He’s already in the Muse Enclave as he’s a main protaganist in the Dreamfic I’m writing. Yum!)

Watching this series re-ignited my interest in the Pre-Raphaelite artists and their philosophy. Add on the Artist community that was started by George Sand and the artists she surrounded herself with and I always get the feeling that I was born in the wrong century.  Bri and I always contend that we should be living in an artist’s commune and immersing ourselves in the artistic endeavors that we are so passionate about, but it just seems like that time has passed. It’s not exactly the time or environment to elicit patronage or live outside the traditional box of behaviour. and that is vexing in the most profound way. (I look to people like Amanda Palmer, who are carrying the torch for the Bohemian Artist philosophy!)

NaNoWriMo is off to a good start, though I’m hoping to extend my writing curv a bit today and cushion myself for slow or missing writing days. As of after lunch my wordcount is 4483. Still have a good cushion but I want to top 5500 by tonight.

Time to sign off and head home.
