Sometimes I terrify myself.
With great power comes great responsibility to abuse that power.
This is a simplified design with no lining or buttons (and wonky sleeve caps), but at this point I can make these jackets in my sleep, I swear.
Red cotton twill, long pile fur from DistinctiveFabrics, wired ribbon harness, iron-on transfer patches, badge design by me. Ready for tomorrow!
Okay, I haven’t even watched Attack on Titan yet and this is amazing.
omg, get on the train, baby. AoT is some red hot shit.
I did nano this year and i won.
was it hard? yes. but life is hard, right? did i learn a lot? of course.
a big part of what I learned is that negativity has no functional part in my life. i would never disparage someone for doing a marathon, likewise i assume that no one would disparage me for trying to do something equally epic but that’s not the case. some people are very anti nano, and that’s okay. you don’t have to do anything that you don’t want to as a writer. but if you want to write, you have to write. if you want to be a novelist, as i do, you have to write novels. even if that means you write a few stinkers - it’s a learning curve and your first novel isn’t going to be perfect. And if you want to write one novel and quit after than, fine, that’s your prerogative.
but don’t for a second try to undermine the impact of what I did this month.
i wrote a novel, start to finish, and no one can take that away from me. i was a creator not a consumer this month and even with a full time job I got it done. there’s nothing to stop me from finishing my other novel now, and i’ve got a boost of confidence now that it won’t be my first novel.
and now i can finally see Catching Fire!
I’m watching ‘Adventures in Time and Space’ and I think I’m going to cry.
I did. Several times. No shame.
I am so happy I follow people that post hockey things because Atlanta lost our hockey team a couple years ago so I can’t go to games anymore, and none of the channels here even play hockey and let me tell you a thing son, hockey players are stud muffins. I generally dont give a flip about sports, but then you take me to a hockey game and I lose my frick frackin mind.
hockey players stretching on the ice has to be the hottest sports related anything in the history of ever. straight up lewd.
