Hello, crafty and sundry!
I’ve continued to keep very busy with NaNoWriMo. I’m still in the game somehow, and am actually pulling ahead of pace to build a nice buffer. I’m still not sure where I’m going with it, but it’s continuing to be fun.
It’s been just about all I’ve been doing though. I’ve cast on for a cardigan, but I’ve only done a couple of rows, and only managed that because I did it at a friend’s house. I’ve got an armwarmer to sew up and the flat pattern to write, but I’m just not there right now.
By the same token, baking has tailed off. It’s probably for the best, ’cause I was keeping us in a steady stream of pies and cakes and the like. Having said that, the husband made Bakewell tarts, and they’re lovely.
I’m still debating whether or not to upload my chapters to my Figment account like I did in 2012… I might. We’ll see. I’ve not poked around Figment much because oh hey, home to kids, and I don’t want to take away from them competing with each other and the like.
I’m happy with my progress though. I totally made the main character bi/pansexual, sexually experienced, and not at all shamed about getting it on. And it’s not graphic in the slightest, which is one of my greatest peeves. The only overt recognition of the sex happening is that the main character’s lover’s mother realises they’re sleeping together and yells at them about it (but also, because the main character is a mortal, and her lover is not, and his mom is a snob about that).
But anyways, just wanted to wave at the page and let everyone who doesn’t follow me on Twitter or NaNo know how that was going, and that I’m still alive!
