A Milestone Approaches

This week, I shall write the last Instant for 2019. Which will set off maybe a week or more of me making sure every last entry is fixed and without flaws, firing up Photoshop to edit the new cover for the year of Instants, and getting it out there - for free - over on Smashwords.

Because copyright is a thing and there's stuff in there that belongs to other IP's and I can't even suggest a donation for that stuff. Sigh.

Of course, by the time it goes out, I shall be well underway on another Leap Year of Instants because 2020 has 366 days in it yay.

Speaking of yay - we've had some rain. Which means that there are only two closest bushfires fucking with our ability to breathe good air today. Those of you concerned with the incendiary nature of my country can be relieved about that bit. I've been trying to telekinetically send the rain over to the biggest firestorms, but it's not working so good.

We could pile up the if only's until we're buried in them, but the only way to move is forward so... we have to rehabilitate and rebuild whatever's left. Maybe with an 'eco' in front of it. Invite a bunch of ecocorps to test their tech in the hardest environment available - Australia.

Lots of people need homes, so why not build ecohomes, each with solar roofs so they're off the grid and not using coal power, and water tanks to gather what rain there is to add to the municipal supply. This could be a golden opportunity to make a bold new solarpunk future out of this entire mess, but...

We all know it won't happen. ScoMo and his Coal Cronies are keeping their thumb on the ecobusinesses and making it unaffordable to do anything useful about the problem whilst also denying that the problem exists. Scumfucks, the lot of them.


Today is the professional unfuckening-the-house-day, and by sheer co-incidence my Beloved and Mayhem both have appointments today. Co-incidentally within the hours of unfuckening. HHHMMMMMM...

At least I have some cashes set aside so I can pay for things like the grand unfuckening. I might have to get more cashes later, but that's small beans.

Today is also the day I pln do do some meal preps with Beloved. Meat and veg and maybe some variety with nutrition balanced with macros.

As the Powers are my witness, I am going to find some GD time to add something to my novel so help me. I love my family, I do, but I need time windows to do my nonsense in.

Holidays For Some

Mayhem is finished with school for this year, as confirmed by a call from the office. They may just dig up an undone scrap of paperwork, but he's done.

Which means that he's on the job market for the holidays.

First mistake: Using Polite Writer Rules to apply for work.

You don't want to be a Nice Writer when looking for a summer job. Nice Writers give the people on the other side an ENTIRE MONTH to get back or whatever their

Milestones of Assorted Import

Today, I have posted the last of Warp and Weft on AO3 [See the "Fanficcery" entry on the menu]. Possibly the weirdest thing I have written of my own free will.

Today, my story count over on Steemit will hit 1972. My birth year FFS. I've written up to my firkin birth year in daily stories. Of course, I know the real count is this plus eight, but you bet I'm making a big deal of it now.

For a small portion

As of this moment, four hundred lovely peeps have downloaded a copy of Hevun’s Rebel [still available for free at Smashwords!] and I couldn’t be happier.

Thankyou. Thankyou all :)

I certainly hope you’re enjoying it.

Tell your friends if you are :D Tell them if you think it’d be right up their alley. Tell them if you reckon it might be a welcome change of pace for them.

Share and enjoy, eh?
