(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.

Nosferatu Novel Concept Art – The Aerie

Art, Writing

Concept art for my Greatest Nosferatu Love Story of All Time novel; the aerie where his mother and little sister (both dragons) sleep. His mother’s hoard (or at least part of it) lines the shelves, and she sleeps on a nest of silver coins. You know. Typical fantasy stuff. :3

A quote on tense, plus horror fiction news!

Writing

“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.)
