Second Life Demon/Dragon Kitty avatar

Because people keep asking “what are you?”.
No, I’m not a fucking demon/dragon kitty.  I just like how it looks.  And yeah, I’m not a furry.  Just happen to have a few anthro avatars on SL.

Oh my God, I love Twilight!

April 12, 2010 2 comments

I’ve always wanted to make comics.

It took an Explosm binge while being ill to finally get me to do one.

They started out pretty crappy, so shall I.

And… I think this is my very first fanart evah.

A closer look at writing scenes

So I may have re-settled on a writing program to use.  Kabikaboo, as nifty as it is, is tweaking on me, so I’ve turned my attentions back to Writer’s Cafe.  I believe I’ll be working towards purchasing this one, if it continues to prove to be worthy.  It’s not my favorite program, but it seems to be my only choice.

A recent breeze through the first rewrite of my first novel made me cringe… It was reading like the Bible or… I don’t know, a newspaper? There aren’t very clear scenes and it’s hard to read it very smoothly.  And by novel I mean the first quarter, I haven’t finished any of my re-writes because I’ve been struggling with sorting through things.

Ages ago when I was using yWriter, I had scenes.  I remember it reading better.  When I stopped using yWriter because it’s flaky as fuck, my novel went through a couple rewrites using OpenOffice… just a plain word processor.  This made me lazy and I didn’t have such a good overview of what was going on.  I did use some indications of scene changes, but it was still loose and sloppy and I ended up with a lot of useless stuff in there.

So this is why I’m trying so hard to find a way to organize my writing.

I’ve been fiddling a bit with a spread sheet, that might be of use in conjunction with Writer’s Cafe but I really prefer having the content of my novel -inside- whatever I’m using.

That’s what I’ve been up to an the writing front! I’m going around finding great articles on writing.  I’ll have to share them here somehow.  I’ve just discovered Google Bookmarks.  It might be cool to figure out how to point people to my writing bookmarks collection…

Fresh pictures of fresh art!

March 11, 2010 1 comment

Ok so mostly fresh. I finally got to borrow a camera so I can share much better pictures of what I’ve been doing. First off:

WTF. I don’t know where this one is going.

I LOVE this one. I don’t think it’s finished but I’m really stuck as to where to take it next. For now it’s nice to have sitting around.

This is nothing new. I noticed after several months that it said “can” twice >.< I’ve been slowly adding little things to it and trying to figure out what to do with the extra “can”.

That red isn’t supposed to be there :-p This was going to be a cityscape with a cat howling into the night but I like it where it is.

Everytime I see this one, I think “Wow, its so neat looking!” for whatever reason. It actually looks better in this picture :-p

This started out as a completely different painting. You can see some of it showing still. This has a story to it, and it’s political and I shouldn’t be sharing that here :-p

This one had been sitting around for almost a year. It’s finally done! Color barf-o-rama but I like it. Shuddup.

Another one where I was going to put a cat on it in a snow scene (flipped, of course, so the “snow” is on the bottom) but I just absolutely love how it looks as-is.

Annnnd the one everyone has been drooling all over in real life… :-p Yes, I painted the cat gold. Yes it’s reflective like that. Yes, the flash ruined it for the rest of the pic but that’s ok ^-^

Ubuntu 9.10 & yWriter5

So I basically upgraded to 9.10 in my sleep last night :-p

I found out there’s a “linux version” of yWriter5 and decided to try to out.  I had 9.04 installed but was having problems with text in the program and menus not showing up, despite a few hours of wrestling, installing, reinstalling according to the directions on Spacejock’s website.

I read that people with 9.10 were having the same problem… there was more people with the problem than -not- with the problem.  But I figured I’d upgrade anyway.  Lo and behold, I can use yWriter again! It’s the best writing program I’ve seen by far.  It used to be really buggy but here’s to hoping it won’t be any longer.

In My Dreams I’m Too Tall to Drown

Finished! And for sale.

One of my funky cats (calling them that for now) painted gold, standing in water and… not drowning :-p  On some random chunk of wood I found.  Good times.
