Traci Loudin6,031This is an online event! Since we can't give out candy via the interwebz, myself and some writer pals are going to give out some free and discounted ebooks.

Jo Lane4,006Did you not mark your calendars? Shame, shame. Last year +Scott Cramer dared me to sit under my desk at work and share a picture; I did, he reshared and viral chaos ensued ;P It was so much fun that we decided to make it an annual event, so get under your desk (or kitchen table or coffee table), take a pic and post it on G+ with the ridiculously long hashtag #InternationalTakeAPictureUnderYourDeskDay ! And, mind your noggin. Last year some companies even got their whole office involved; along with kids and pets - sitting under your desk is for everyone ;P It's Friday. You aren't really working anyway.

Andrij “Andrew” Harasewych440,234It's been a pretty disappointing year for some of us, celestial sights wise. There have been the usual meteor showers (it was cloudy for me every time), the transit of Venus (also cloudy) and several eclipses (none were visible from my area). Luckily, we still have the Geminids left. They're generally considered to be one of the best and most reliable meteor showers of the year, so hopefully we'll get a good show. They will appear to radiate from the constellation of Gemini, and you could spot up to 120 meteors per hour. The moon will be new meaning that visibility should be very good. Although Dec 13th-14th is the peak, meteors will be visible for several days before and after that so don't forget to look up this week. As usual, if you get any good photographs/videos please send them our way!Geminid Meteor Shower2012-12-14 00:00:00161

HELP!!!
Hey folks, if you wanna make someone's day, here's a way to do that and show some appreciation to a WWII vet who helped secure our freedom! But you have to act quick! And all it takes is a simple card or letter!

The older gentleman picture here is Al. He's a Navy Vet who was stationed in Bremerton WA shipyards as a welder (aboard the IX-106 USS Greyhound) doing repairs on ships damaged in the Pacific theater during World War II.

Next week he'll be taking an Honor Flight (http://talonsouthonorflight.org/) to commemorate his service to the nation, and as part of the ceremony they like to read cards and letters of appreciation. But you know, that was a long time ago and he doesn't really have any right now! So show some love to an old vet and let him know how much you appreciate his efforts by sending a card or letter to:

Good mornthing!

So, I definitely just slept for 12 hours.

I spent the better part of yesterday afternoon down in the basement, finishing off The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and starting Person of Interest while catching up on some of my correspondence (including stuff I unpacked that had been mailed to me in 2012 and I am pretty sure I never replied; how do you people put UP with me?!). A little after 8pm I came upstairs and curled up on the couch under Youngest's blanket, watching Wild Kratts over his shoulder. And I closed my eyes.

I was dimly aware, at one point, of a small body snuggling under the blanket with me, but eventually I woke up and it was midnight and the children had all gone to bed, and I went back to my own bed and had another night of busy dreams, up to and including embarrassing +Amanda Lord in front of her king at an SCA event because I came to... more »

I was dimly aware, at one point, of a small body snuggling under the blanket with me, but eventually I woke up and it was midnight and the children had all gone to bed, and I went back to my own bed and had another night of busy dreams, up to and including embarrassing +Amanda Lord in front of her king at an SCA event because I came to Court wearing a random short sleeve blouse and brightly colored knee-length modern skirt, and instead of sitting in a proper chair I sat on an IKEA coffee table that was inexplicably in the aisle, and also was holding a box fan? So she had to, on a break, take me out behind the dais backdrop and give me a loving but firm dressing-down.

Dear brain: What the hell?

My gaming session is cancelled today, which I was sad about when the news came but now am sort of okay with because I'm still kinda tired, and feel like I've taken a beating, and just don't feel up to making the drive.

On the upside of things, I purchased a replacement hair clip and it is playing very nicely with my hair. WITNESS ME!

Got some writing to do. Hope to get the kids out of the house for a little while before it rains. Not feeling super motivated on a lot of things, and so am glad for the impending rain because it means I don't have to go water all the things I planted yesterday. Winning.

Good mornthing!

Lookit, lookit, you can see my white hair in this picture! It NEVER seems to show up in photographs, which makes me nuts, but you can see it here, yaaaaay!

Around quarter of midnight last night, SALM was Minecrafting and I was watching The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and we were like,
"You wanna watch some Leverage? Or maybe Blacklist?"
"Ooh, I could go for some Leverage!"
"Okay!"
"Although.... we could also... go to bed?"
"Oh, yeah!"

And we did, and we slept, and my dreams were SO BUSY, but it was good, mostly. Except for the awkward social situation. WTF dreams.

Anyway, I'm off to buy a severed head with the girlchild, and then I am going to spend a nice chunk of time in the basement, weaving and catching up on correspondence (and hopefully I haven't... more »

If you want to correspond with me by snailmail, yay! Send something to PO Box 473, Sharon, MA 02067. Make sure it's got your mailing address in it somewhere, so I know where to write back!

OH MY ZOD YOU GUYS, THIS BOOK! Get it. Get it for free! Then tell me you got it, and we'll do a group liveblog of it. It'll be a rereading of it, but it's been almost half a decade (LOLwut) since I first read it, so some of it will be like reading new again. #GEDDIT

You, with the eye balls...

Too many of you don't know me. Don't know enough about me. Don't seem to understand me... 

This won't change any of that.

But if you have a kindle or read books using the Kindle software you can download my book of Micro Fiction that pretty makes people's brains overload... for free. For a very limited time.

Starting April 30th and lasting until I get tired of giving it away for free, my book, Unselected, will be FREE. No strings attached. 

• Been lying to yourself that you'll read my work, f*ck you, go read it. 
• Need some inspiration, writers tell me that this book singlehandedly made them write trilogies. 
• Missing some part of your soul to a demon, too bad.... here's a free book.

You're welcome.___OH MY ZOD YOU GUYS, THIS BOOK! Get it. Get it for free! Then tell me you got it, and we'll do a group liveblog of it. It'll be a rereading of it, but it's been almost half a decade (LOLwut) since I first read it, so some of it will be like reading new again. #GEDDIT

Good mornthing!

I went deep into the sads yesterday/last night. I tried to self-medicate with orgasms, and with alcohol, but ultimate what helped me most was drawing on other people's happies. So my thanks, to all of you who shared a happy with me yesterday. I hadn't the energy to respond individually, but I read every comment.

Today I am on a fixit mission; the robe for commencement that I got from the campus bookstore is too tight. I need to go there and get the full figured robe instead.

After that, it will be an afternoon of editing and writing. I can make a Productivity Hangout, if anybuggy wants.

Good mornthing!

All I fucking wanted to do was smile and exchange pleasantries with someone in the coffeeshop while putting milk and sugar in my coffee. All I did was meet his eyes and say good morning, and I ended up conversationally cornered by a man who told me, among other things, that boys learn by doing, not talking, and that men are chromosomally wired to ignore the female voice.

It’s been a while since I got stuck having to listen to someone who clearly does not consider me a human being. My smile-and-nod powers are strong. Today it was mostly just smile, though; I couldn’t bear to nod to what he was saying.

Eventually, I Have A Nice Day'd him on his way, because I hit my bullshit limit, and even though I'd gotten my coffee to go I sat down to wait for him to be well and truly gone. And to wait for my hands to stop shaking. I passed the time thinking up all sorts of nasty things I could have said that he never would have known, were he truly hardwired to naturally ignore the female voice.

If surrounding myself with people who consider me human and worth listening to means I have built an echo chamber, so be it. I don't have to agree with people ll the time. Hell, I don't WANT to. But I also have no truck with making people feel Less Than or somehow Unworthy.

You have worth, dammit, and so do I.

Anyway.

Productivity Hangout going for anybody who wants, from now till 11am EST, at which point I m writing with Murphy and Linachu.

I think I might write murdery things. I'm in a mood, now, y'see.

Last day to pick up TIME AND TITHE for free on Kindle.

Only months after her victory over Oberon and Titania, everything Lydia thought she'd accomplished is unraveling: Faerie is falling into decay, the Fae are restless, and Taylor—the baby sister she sacrificed everything for—has grown up without her.

When Taylor tumbles out of the ordinary world and into Faerie, she discovers that Aeon, her imaginary childhood friend, is all too real. He is a powerful Fae, trapped in a maze of vengeance, memory, and madness. His unleashed power threatens to free Oberon and Titania and reignite the war Lydia had ended.

The sisters, now nearly strangers to one another, must figure out how to keep Aeon from destroying Faerie and safeguard the mortal world, all without sacrificing the Fae who was once friend to them both.

The long-awaited sequel to THE BETWEEN, TIME AND TITHE also can be read as a stand-alone story of the world of the Fae.

Even if fantasy isn't your thing, would you help a writer out and download it anyway? The more downloads a free book gets, the better visibility it has for new readers to discover it. And, hey, you might even like it! ;)

Good mornthing!

I am treating myself to breakfast at Bread & Brooklyn today in advance of all the running around I have to do, which includes a drive to my parents' house, banking, and dealing with the shenanigans of the University Parking Office so I can hunt for the bookstore and get myself measured for my cap and gown robe and wizard hat hood.

This Spawn were magically delicious well behaved this morning. They got themselves up and dressed an fed and played nicely together and all that good stuff. Youngest and I had a talk about how, if he gets really frustrated today, he should tell his teacher so and ask to go for a walk to visit the principal or counselor. He still seems dubious, but I assured him it was okay. I then reminded his principal of that at dropoff, who will hopefully also remind the lad's teacher.

On the one hand, it's not fun taking away screens for the day to sanction poor school behavior. On the other hand, it's really great watching the creativity that comes out to fill the time, such that another sibling was voluntarily off screens and two kids together did teamwork for two hours to create a mini cardboard box theater, a puppet show, tickets for the show, and tiny coins we could use to buy the (real) popcorn (courtesy of +James Lucas)to eat while we watch the show.

I was told it would have a NyanCat theme. XD

The theatrical production was a grand success! There were three posters in the hall advertising "The Nyien Cat Show", and when we arrived tickets cost us 75 paper cents. (Pre-measured portions of popcorn labelled 'mom,' 'dad,' and 'Lane' were a dollar apiece - it is nice tosee they have a working grasp of modern entertainment... more »

(Pre-measured portions of popcorn labelled 'mom,' 'dad,' and 'Lane' were a dollar apiece - it is nice tosee they have a working grasp of modern entertainment economics.)

They set up two rows of seating, and instructed the shorter folks to sit in front, which nonetheless did not prevent the rowdy theatergoer in the back from demanding "Down in front!"

While we munched our popcorn, Middlest read a list of theater rules which included:
No barfing
No talking
No texting
No tweeting
No iphones, ipads, or tablets
No walking out of your seat during the show 

Naturally Eldest immediately ran to the living room to fetch his 3DS and a laptop, because "they aren't expressly forbidden!" It's nice to know which child I am raising is a pedant.

We were then thanked for attending a Nyan Cat Production, and the lights went down for the show 

There was Nyan Cat, flying through space with excellent music! Suddenly!- Toast Man Appears! There is a grand chase through space! With appropriate music! But suddenly, and explosion! Nyan Cat and Toast Man fly off, spinning out of control in different directions! Finally, a speech bubble floats in: "I'll be back."

Such drama! Very cliffhanger. Wow. 

The lights came up amidst great applause, and the performers were hugged and congratulated soundly. We, in turn, were promised a sequel within a month.

Then the children went off to party in the living room while Dad and Mum put the chairs back and swept up all the popcorn.

Good mornthing!

The Spawn Collective were OUTSTANDING with enschoolenation prep this morning. I made sure to tell each and all of them how proud I am of them for it. Eldest in particular is freshly great. He's using his new alarm clock (which he has pronounced effective and annoying) to get up and showered and dressed before I'm even up. Youngest didn't even need a reminder to put on his glasses.

Today is Tuesday, and it is Tuesdayish. I went to bed when I was tired last night, and slept long and full. I slept, and I dreamt of Odin, and ravens, and kittens and panthers, computers, and yarn. I dreamt of icebergs. I have that awful feeling like it all meant something, and it's too much slipped away. I hate it.

Odin looked totally hella in that light brown suit.

Anyway, I'm doing some editing today, and some writing with my Two Timers, and some more editing, and then it's time to pick up the kids for Taco Tuesday. Also, we got a mailing from Orange Leaf about free froyos, so I might take them over there for after school snack.  Assuming they want it... we've got a kind of a dim and chilly day up here.

Good mornthing!

Today is weird but mostly in good ways, I think?

Eldest used the alarm clock I'd gotten him at IKEA and woke up at 7am. By the time I rolled out of bed at half past seven he was showered, dressed, and watching Pat & Jen Minecraft videos on the Yoo Toobs. Youngest got up without argument, and dressed, and helped make breakfast. He's a bit on the hyper side, today, but he's not veering into inappropriate language, so that's good. (There's been a lot of poop and fart talk, lately.)

The hero hair is restrained, this morning. We saved the world last night, but it was one of those dubious worldsavings. I thought I was ready for a thing but I wasn't, which led to backrubbing and crying. Also, we lost a fine helper; Mister Rumble cracked, revealing his hidden identity as Mister Sparky!

So that's kind of sad too. We saved the world without it nonetheless.

My bruise is still muchly in the crease, but spreading out throughout the eyelid; it's going yellow and green around the upper edge, but in the middle the purple has resolved to a really awesome red.

I haz a tired. I am glad the children are going back to school today. I'm going to maybe take a little nap, and then edit stuffs for MDP.

Maybe paint or weave a little. IDK.

Fun with Watercolors!

I'm playing around with watercolor paint again. This time, I tried out a thing I saw in the Yoo Toobs about using drops of rubbing alcohol for paint resist. It's not... terrible, exactly? It looks better in person, for sure, but it looks effing childish on the screen. Anyway, I made a thing, and I like to share my thingmake with y'all even when I think it's shitty. I'm just starting out, and that means I'm new. I'm not good at the thing yet, and that's okay.

It's important to remember what it's like when we start out with a thing. I still have the first thing I spun, somewhere.

We are all new at something, and not just once. We are new at something many times.

We are always new.

Good mornthing!

The bruise has well and truly settled into the crease of my eyelid. I posted a picture on Tumblr last night, and a friend pointed out that if I could get a custom pair of eyeshadows made in the color of my crease and the color of my lid, they would be truly striking together.

...striking. LOL.

I crashed out sometime between 10-11 last night, and slept until almost 10 this morning. I've been sleeping hard and heavy lately, and SALM pointed out that now we have the heat off and windows open a lot, and it is, of course, pollen season. And here I am living in a different place than I was living for the last five pollen seasons.

No wonder I'm getting wrecked.

I'll be hitting up the local farmer's market and a local farm, looking for locally-made honey. That will help ameliorate the pollen-effect on me somewhat, although it's probably a bit late for this year. Ah well.

Today I am going to be attempting some watercoloring. I'm also going to be mulling over what to write for a call for submissions to which +Nobilis Reed turned me on (heh) this morning; it's for audio recordings of original short stories, written in second person, based on dirty talk. I can totally slay at that, if I can just think of what to write.

Gotta figure out where my watercolor paint tubes are.

In honor of Shakespeare's birthday, (though this is definitely NOT Shakespeare's Faerie!) TIME AND TITHE is free for kindle from now through April 27th.

Welcome to the continuing war between overt and covert magic, where every choice has consequences. TIME AND TITHE, Changeling's Choice book 2: a modern take on the myths of Faerie.

While it's nominally the second book, each book of Changeling's Choice was designed to be able to be read as a standalone. (Consider one as sequel to the other or the other as prequel.)

"I won't offer any spoilers at all, but I'll just say that there are some great characters at play in this world -- great at being evil and great at being good, sometimes both in the same day. This is a story about politics, power, and intrigue, and at its heart are two teenage sisters trying to do their best."

"Help comes from some of the most unperceived areas in this stay-up-all-night-reading story. The twists and turns in this story will keep you enthralled until the very last word, and beyond."

"With a masterful twist, LJ Cohen brings her characters to life as the brightness that holds the darkness back. These tales are full of surprises, leaving the reader astounded that the author could create the second book from the first. There is nothing predictable about this series."

"Imaginary friends aren't always your friend and friends are sometimes your enemy. Your enemies are sometimes the allies you didn't know you needed."

SALM: You need to shut off the light when you leave the bathroom, because it costs money we could otherwise be spending on other things. Like toys that you need.
Youngest: Toy is are a want! Food is a need. Electricity is a need. TV is a want. Bacon? Is a need.

Good mornthing!

Hero Hair is a go! Meanwhile, Nature's Shitty Eyeshadow (the bruise) has dropped and spread, fully following the crease of my lid. My whole eyeball feel s like someone went around the edges with a spoon or a grapefruit scoop to loosen the edges but hasn't bothered to scoop it yet. Ugh.

#DoesntMatterHadSex  

It is cool and rainy  in Blisstopia, which may mean fewer out-and-about adventures with Youngest than I'd hoped for. Still, once he gets up I do want to get him dressed and whisked to Cohasset for a haircut from The Real Gianfranco.

SALM's favorite cousin is still here. We had a fun night just hanging out and chilling, chit-chatting with him while playing Minecraft. He spent yesterday at PAX, so he was kinda wiped.

I have writing to do today; I've got a character to work up for an ERP, another to work up for a Shared World project, and I haven't touched the IW sequel in like two weeks except for a random scene I wrote during my hangouts with +Lindsey Clements and +Murphy Jacobs earlier this week and I still don't know where it fits in the book. I also have editing I want to do, because tentacles!

I dreamed I got an email from +Nobilis Reed that the most recent voice recording I did for him is awful. I need to check in to make sure he got it and that it isn't somehow borked.

I want to weave today. I want to paint. Neverlong, the days, enough.

Make something beautiful today, and remember that beautiful is not fully mutually inclusive with "pretty."

Good mornthing!

The after-effect of the accidental headbutt is not much to look at. My brow is a bit swollen, but not discolored. I have a weirdy abrasion on my eyelid. The headache lingers on.

Today I need to balance work stuff with Minecraft and laundry; Youngest wants to play, while Eldest needs clean clothes for the weekend. Meanwhile, because SALM's cousin called us late last night en route from NJ looking for a place to crash before PAX, I was up ridiculous late making a new friend.

All I really want is a shower and a nap. I intend to get at least one of these things before noon.

Things that suck:

when your kid is having a bad temper about bedtime and you're in their room with the light out, sitting on the side of their bed, and lean in to try and hug it out - right at the same time as he sits up sharply so he can yell at you some more, and neither of you see it in the dark, and you bother learn an abrupt object lesson about how two heads cannot occupy the same space at the same time.

I think I'm done crying about it, but fuuuuuuuuuuuck the forward right. quadrant... not quadrant, that would be sectioning the head into eights... octant? Is that even a word? Anyway, it fucking hurts. I may be interesting colors on one side for the mornthing selfie, and it's already goose-egg-ing a little.

If you have any particular investment in me being pretty in all my pictures, SELL! SELL! SELL!

Good mornthing!

So, I tend to have something going as distraction/encouragement/background/organic breaktime while I'm working. Often it's Productivity Hangouts or "study music" but sometimes it is something on +Netflix US & Canada; I recently went through the entire run of Scrubs, for example, including that weirdy-fascinating last season where Zach Braff only showed up for half of it and Carla never came on screen at all. (I really liked the new focal characters, actually, and wish they'd carried on through). Right now, my go-to is True Blood on +Amazon.com Prime video streaming. Damn, but that theme song just does things to me. What genre even is that? I need to look up more of that guy's work.

As an added bonus, Girlchild is away with an overnight, and BoyChildren are both still sound asleep - after very agreeably going the hell to sleep at 9pm without a storytime because I was so suddenly and totally wiped out.There is a french press carafe at my elbow waiting to be plunged.

I have had the heat turned off for two days. The house was 65 when I got up this morning. I didn't spend half the night tossing and turning and overheated. So great. SO, so great.

Hump day! Find somebody to hump. Or a burden to hump. Or a camel. Or possibly two of the three? Maybe all of them together, but in a particular way.

Bwahaha.

The day is sunny, the children are good, and I am attempting to not just bake crescent rolls but to bake crescent rolls with cheeeeeeeeese inside them. Why? IDK. Because I wanna.

I've got some work to do today, and some writing to do, and I need to shoehorn Eldest out of the house; I think the Minecraft Club he normally attends on Wednesdays should do it.

I have weird aches and pains in odd places. Dear Ovary: STFU.

I'm thinking about dropping $15 for a month of WoW time... if I do, will any of y'all play with me? What servers are you on?

As promised to +Bliss Morgan (and the amazing team at +Chococurb!) my first unboxing!

Note in particular the lovely wrapping, clearly hand done! Also, that nifty little post card? That just might be my next indulgence... Coffee box!

I'll make sure to post reviews on the Chococurb site! I haven't eaten any yet, but they all look like something I'd buy for myself, so I'm looking forward to it!

Good mornthing!

My bedhead looks a-maaaaaaaa-zing! People pay stylists big money for this curly-and-tousled look.

I yanked myself out of a dream that was also kind of amazing. It was all well and good when I was telling a man who was a sort of hybrid of James Earl Jones and Samuel L. Jackson that I'd unwound and rewound his fishing reel a bit but in order to fix it proper he'd need to unwind and rewind the whole thing. It was even fine that I was gathering up stuff to leave the party/gathering we were all at, with +Lisa Cohen and +Laura Antoniou and my dad. Apparently where my brain drew the line was at Laura whining and fussing (LOLwhat) that she couldn't find her Christmas cards (LOLWUT) and has someone seen what happened to her Advent calendarrrrrrr (cananybodyshowmehowtoevenbecauseIcan't)?

Anyway, it's a nice morning in Blisstopia; the Spawn continue to be off from school, and let me sleep in. I found Elder curled up in a corner behind a couch, in a nest of pillows and blankets, doing his thing. Middlest is chilling on the couch with Minecrack YouTube videos. And Youngest? Apparently being let to stay up till nearly half past 10, with a nice long reading-to from Discworld (It was Unseen Academicals, for the curious), tuckered his little self right out, because it's been 11 hours and still no sign of him rising from the sheets.

I've got coffee brewing, and soon there will be an assortment of toasty bagels from a place that has them boiled in Brooklyn and shipped in to bake on-site. So good. So. Good.

Lots of Editry pending today, and therefore probably a Productivity Hangout! You want in?

Hey folks, if you wanna make someone's day, here's a way to do that and show some appreciation to a WWII vet who helped secure our freedom! But you have to act quick! And all it takes is a simple card or letter!

The older gentleman picture here is Al. He's a Navy Vet who was stationed in Bremerton WA shipyards as a welder (aboard the IX-106 USS Greyhound) doing repairs on ships damaged in the Pacific theater during World War II.

Next week he'll be taking an Honor Flight (http://talonsouthonorflight.org/) to commemorate his service to the nation, and as part of the ceremony they like to read cards and letters of appreciation. But you know, that was a long time ago and he doesn't really have any right now! So show some love to an old vet and let him know how much you appreciate his efforts by sending a card or letter to:

                Al Flietstra
                c/o Bryan Waller
                12010 North Pointe Lane
                Apartment 2
                Holland , MI 49424

(That's Bryan in the photo on the right. He's Al's newest friend and veteran escort for the event.)

It would be nice if Bryan could get the letters by Friday, so hop on it if you can! If they don't arrive in time for the ceremony he'll still get them to Al after the fact.

Cheers! And to all of our Veterans out there who served in any branch, and any capacity - THANK YOU VERY MUCH!___

Good mornthing!

No, I do not have any cognitive dissonance about using a christmas stocking cup while the kitchen door is open to let the warm spring air wash in, why do you ask?

It is a beautiful day in Blisstopia, and it is a holiday in Massachusetts! Technically, it's Patriot's Day, but if you ask me, it's Take The Day Off Work To Either Go See The Boston Marathon Or Stay The Hell Out Of It's Way Seriously The City Streets Are A Freakin' Mess Day.

It has also, for the last few years, been somewhat Ruminate On Violent Acts And Civil Liberties Day. In the wake of the finish line bombing, when police were going door to door in Watertown looking for the guy, one of my cousins was locked in the attic with her husband, their four children, and his gun.

It's not really something I want to talk about. It's just something I'm thinking about today. If you want to have discussions about that stuff, I ask that you do so on your own threads.

It being this weirdy holiday means that SALM is home today! We got to hella sleep in, which is nice. The kids are home too, and totally self-directing their own entertainment out in the living room. They are actually off school all this week for spring vacation, so +Lindsey Clements and +Murphy Jacobs please be aware that my participation in the writing hangout will be enthusiastic but possibly interrupted.

I finally emailed Mister Doctor Professor my hours not only for last week, but for two weeks ago. I shouldn't have let that slide for so long. >.>
