Good News

A 7-post collection

Good News, Bad News, Meh News

Good news: I got the format of The Amity Incident to work for the print version. And I now have two Patrons to keep my funds on the increase.

Bad news: I got rejected by the postal agents.

Meh news: I can't really afford the trivia night I've been looking forward to for months.

There's other social stuff happening this weekend, so I only get one day to do any of the nothing I want to do. And I'm nine weeks away from finishing Rael with no new input from any of my extant Betas.

I'm ordering the proof copy of The Amity Incident, today. Which means it'll be a few weeks before I can approve the dang thing.

Meanwhile, it should be visible sometime RSN on my Lulu Spotlight. Sorry it's $1 more than KFZ, there's more pages in Amity and it just costs more to make. If I priced it the same as KFZ, I'd make $0 off of non-Australian sales.

I'm almost up to colouring the central figures in the cover art of Beauties. Yay I guess. More detail is going to have to go into the shading and that crap. And I'm dreading the dresses.

Three cheers for layers because doing all this colouring on zero layers would just... firkin kill me.

And it looks like there's going to be more of that TAZ:BA fic for my Patrons, next week. Yay. In fact, it looks like there's going to be a LOT of that fic because I just firkin love the shiny idea that bit my butt.

Sadly, there's nothing new for Clockwork Souls, but that's okay because nobody is wanting to read that, yet. It'll filter down in a few weeks. Ten weeks, belike.

And then I'll actually have to work on it. Yeeps.

A Good Morning

We stayed up late, last night, installing things on Chaos' new PC. So I'm operating on a few hours' sleep. OTOH, the kids got up early and got ready early, and then Beloved helped out with the finishing touches.

I still had to teach them how to do it, because Beloved is more of a programmer than a hairdresser.

I have run out of stuff to take to St. Vinnies. This is an immense relief for me as I no longer have

Lo Batt

So I've swapped my medication to taking it at night. And I kind'a revelled in being AWAKE for a change and wound up staying up until eleven. Whoops.

Also taking a midday estivation until night time probably didn't help there.

So this morning, I'm still foggy, but able to function. For limited definitions of 'function'. I'm still easily distractible and I'm having small troubles maintaining focus.

And I haven't watered my garden yet... hangon...

There. Plants are still alive, yay.

I have

Plain cigarette packaging works: study

Plain packaging on tobacco products is associated with lower smoking appeal, greater support for the policy and a higher urgency to quit among adult smokers, a new study has found.

The study, conducted by Victorian researchers and published in the journal BMJ Open, is the first to examine how plain packaging affects smokers thoughts in practice following the roll-out of plain packaging laws in Australia in late 2012. Previous studies have only looked at simulated plain
