Why this piece is awesome: I feel like the artist captures their personalities and their relationship rather well. :D Also, I really like the shading and the folds in their clothing.

Why this piece is awesome: Starting off with a piece of the entire cast. These are simple, stylized line drawings but the simplicity makes it a strong piece and the style really reminds me of some of the ancient greek art.

Winter is here

Basic state of me, since I haven't done one of these in a while, cribbed from an email, because, well, I'd written it and it was fine for here, too. :)

I got a cold, then we went away for a week, and then I caught ANOTHER COLD right as I was getting over the first one, so I've spend a total of about three weeks plague-ridden by this point. I'm only just starting to feel human again. I actually did dishes and washing today, so, yay me.

Weather right now is gloriously sunny and really quite cold, especially at night. Last night it got to at least -5C, with Orange (another place nearby and slightly higher altitude) hitting -7C. I know that's not that cold for Chicago, but it's definitely cold enough for me. I could feel the bite when I was hanging the washing out earlier - I can always tell when it's cold enough to snow in Orange. All the condiments in our kitchen have gone strange, as they do when we're in winter. The olive oil is solid in the bottle and won't move even when I shake it upside down. My dishwashing liquid was transparent and has gone completely opaque, like conditioner. The mice have stolen my steel wool AGAIN. (Bastards! No, really, second one they've taken in a month.) My kitchen-cat (too old to bother catching the thieving mice) hasn't shifted from the nest of blankets on the kitchen chair in days, apart from to eat. We bought two fleecy synthetic blankets, and she just cuddled right in, with even her face smooshed in. (I poke her now and again to make sure she's still breathing. She glares at me then buries her face again.)

I may make muesli tomorrow, if Emma doesn't get around to experimenting with some other muesli-ish recipe she's found and wants to try. I made vegetable and chorizo soup yesterday, and we're having something with butternut pumpkin in it for dinner today, maybe pasta, IDK. Otherwise, I am reading fic, knitting a pair of gloves for Brother1 and eating tangelos, because they are divine, only a limited season, and heaven knows I need the vitamin c right now (see:plague). At least we got our flu shot this year.

June update; July goals

Days written: 20/30

Words written, year to date: 53,479
Stories worked on: Three
Stories posted: One

Chart )

Specific goals, June:

1. Write every day that I'm not traveling. I came pretty close, and wrote once during the trip.

2. Finish draft of MCU story. Close enough to submit, anyway, and I have a complete outline now, which was sorely missing at the beginning of the month.

3. Write story for Remix. Success! But they haven't been de-anoned yet, so I can't post a link.

Progress on goals for 2015:

1. Continue tracking wordcounts and monthly goals. Check in with [livejournal.com profile] ushobwri at least three times a month, and share with the weekly workshop at least twice a month. Goals tracking yes, but I've really fallen down on my [livejournal.com profile] ushobwri participation.

2. Finish with all current WIPs and owed fics by the end of October. Make progress on Wardens of Ivalice. I need to really sit down and do a triage on the first part of this. Wardens of Ivalice has actually been much on my mind lately, and I've poked at it several times, even added a couple of scenes. I think this may become my priority in the second half of the year.

3. Participate in at least one Big Bang that's not the DABB. In progress! My posting date for [livejournal.com profile] wipbigbang is later this month, and the story is MCU. So that's exciting.

4. Post or crosspost to DW/LJ at least three times a week. Archive all Tumblr and flashfic on AO3 on at least a quarterly basis. I haven't been writing much flashfic, and I've barely been updating any of my journals lately -- even my Tumblr is mostly running on queue. I've been saying forever that I need to figure out how to better motivate myself to post regularly, and this still remains true.

July goals:

1. Write at least five days per week.

2. Finish and post [livejournal.com profile] wipbigbang story.

3. Cull WIP folder, and make a list of all unwritten request fics. Target one to finish each month between now and the end of the year.

4. Work on Wardens of Ivalice.
