Feel a little like I’m repeating myself with these. Trying to use some good streetwear albums for inspiration.
(Also my cat as a loaf.) This bottom one is a total LOL for me, what a sassy pose!
I’m looking forward to doing color studies…dunno if I want to play up the pale skin by putting him in dark clothes (SOOOOO DONE TO DEATH) or pale clothes. I mean, keep in mind his momma is a dragon so she is FAB U LOUS! of course.
“Books let you know what tense they want to be written in.” — David Mitchell, from Make it now: the rise of the present tense in fiction
As a writer working on a fantasy story (the greatest Nosferatu love story of all time) that for some reason is first-person, present tense, I found that quote to be hugely reassuring.
In other news, I am preparing a new horror novelette to go out to a proofreader. If you’ve ever had a cat bring you gifts, you will probably like it.
I’ve got more to type on it, but I don’t feel like working on it this second.
I bought another Leuchtturm Master Ruled Notebook from Amazon (233 pages). But the seller sent me a Leuchtturm SLIM, which only has 120 pages! I can write 100 page in under a month.
So I just sent them a complaint. I’ve already written in it–but I wouldn’ta bought it if I’d known it was a SLIM.
Pretty annoyed, too, paying a full-size notebook price and only getting half the pages. Grr! (Guess that’s another way they could make it up to me–send me another SLIM for free.)
After doing a little research, I finally named the Chinese fashionista witch in my latest short story (which has the tentative title of My Frenchie Valentine). Only took 8,000 words!
I’m still struggling on a water faerie name for my nosferatu novel. After researching Irish, Celtic, and Scottish water names (she’s a selkie), I started using “Coventina” just so I could stop typing [name] every time she shows up! But it’s not ringing the right bells for me. :\
While indexing names for my church calling, I came across the name “Scythia,” which I may try, but…*shrug*
But more importantly, in today’s scene a faerie taught my vampire a knock knock joke.
What the heck, novel?!
