Day 2 of the Tumblr Strike

I've noticed that the sponsored posts have 'mysteriously' vanished from Tumblr. Odd that a social website that makes its money by supporting pedophiles, homophobes, and racists suddenly doesn't want its sponsors knowing what it's really up to.

Funny that.

Well, I vow that I'm going to keep stirring that pot until the day that I can export all my Tumblr shit to Pillowfort. If I see an advertiser, I'm going to frelling tweet them about exactly what organisation they're paying to spread awareness of their crap.

I come from a long line of shit-stirrers. I can firkin stir some flakkin shit.

Meanwhile, I've officially run out of chapters to post for my Dollar Patrons over at my Patreon Page. Which means I need to think up something else to entertain those kind enough to give a dollar.

Possibly something op-ed esque on Mondays.

All ideas are welcome, but a new book to edit won't be ready until I've written the final words in Rael. And given it a read-through, because finding errors before anyone else does is kind'a my jam.

Which means that everything I have up on Patreon will be shifting. Beauties and the Beastly will get taken down and replaced with Rael. And in Rael's place in the $15 slot will be Clockwork Souls. Because I'll be legit writing that for a change.

And then the $20 slot will miss out because no other shiny ideas have entered my fluffy little head. I'll find something to fill that arena. The $5 patrons are already listening to my musical compositions.

Maybe I can work on the cover art for Beauties and post the progress on Fridays. Either ProCreate or Photoshop... it's going to take time from SESP, but... That's what free time on weekends is for.

What do you think?

I can do this...

I'm getting better, so that means it's time to get right back onto my self-maintenance. But not so harshly that I fall over again and cause an endless cycle of sickness and recovery.

I did my first morning walk since I got ill, last week. Just around one block, and at a nice, leisurely pace. Chaos came with and was inappropriately loud for 6AM. Repeatedly.

But I did hatch some eggs, and that's good enough for me. [for the record, I got

Challenge #01232-C137: A Strange Visitor

"What could be worse than a sixty Minutes News van waiting on the footpath?"

"How about a large Blue box, and people are taking selfies." -- Anon Guest

Carol looked out the other window in her tiny flat. The view was blurry, because it was the bathroom window, but there was, indeed, a familiar shape in the street. Either the BBC had deigned to acknowledge Australia as a filming location... or someone was playing silly buggers.

She texted the other top five

Procrasti... nation

I admit. I'm a dawdler. I found a nice source... several nice sources... of sealing wax... online and ready to ship to my location. I'm debating whether or not it's a good idea because they're upwards of $6 per stick. More if they include sealing paraphernalia.

Artisinal stuff is a niche business. Sealing wax is for historian nerds, steampunks, and bridal supplies... because old timey aesthetic equals romance.

It's cheaper and easier to use domestic candles. I at least have those. And,
