S. A. Hunt2,347We set our G+ cover images and elsewhere profile pics to Victorian illustrations and MP frames, and confuse the dickens out of everyone with antics like using MP quotes in casual conversation, taking phone video of silly walks or impromptu YouTube performances of the Penis Song, and ensuring everyone at dinner that we are much too full, we couldn't possibly eat another bite because we are completely stuffed.Monty Python Day2014-10-05 06:00:002G+

Dan Thompson2,147Here is my circle of writers.  My suggestion to you new G+ folks is to add the entire circle as its own circle, i.e. "Dan's Writing Circle".  Over time, move your favorites over into your own growing array of circles.In particular, though, I'd say pay attention to John Ward, Evo Terra, Nathan Lowell, Brook Johnson, and Jefferson Smith.2014-02-22 19:51:53249212CC G+

Sam Sager3,743Science-Fiction and Fantasy Writers CircleIt's been a very long time since I've shared this circle. It is long over due. This is a great group of writers to follow. They range from the very well known to the aspiring, but all are worth following. I learn something new and am very entertained by these people everyday.If you or someone you know is a science-fiction or fantasy writer and would like to be a part of this circle please let me know.2013-12-22 01:05:22308413CC G+
Brittany Constable3,838You know, I haven't seen any NaNoWriMo shared circles going around yet.  Perhaps communities have made them a little redundant, but this is still one of my favorite things about the Plus, so I'm sharing away.The people in this circle have all either mentioned NaNoWriMo in posts or comments, or are in the NaNoWriMo 2013 community.  Please let me know if you:- are not in this circle and should be (this is the one time of year I'll circle anyone and everyone as long as they're doing NaNo)- are in the circle and shouldn't be- are doing NaNo, but would not like to be included in shared circlesA note about adding large circlesIn the past, I've added WriMos to both the NaNo circle and the general writers circle.  This has proven a mistake, since a lot of people who pipe up enthusiastically during November later disappear off G+, or just don't prove a good fit for my stream, and it leaves me spending a lot of time doing circle maintenance.So what I'm doing this year, and what I'd recommend others do as well, is add new people only to this circle (if they're not already in other circles) and keep the volume turned all the way down.  Then you can go to the separate stream and check people out, adding only the people you want to keep around to other circles. In a couple of months you can empty out the NaNo circle and clear out all the people who didn't make the cut.2013-10-23 17:06:17401404CC G+

Kimberly Hurlbut16,610The Favorites!I haven't shared a circle in a few weeks because I've been too lazy to get on the computer to create one. Since I was doing circle maintenance I thought this was the perfect time to put together some of my favorite people that make G+ awesome for me!These people create original posts, are artistic, intelligent and want to share their knowledge with the world, or just people that have made me laugh and engage with me often. I tried keeping the circle size fairly small so you're not hit with too many people at once.... So please  add this circle and share share share these favorites of mine! :o)2013-07-06 17:11:2910022210CC G+

Vago Damitio8,732Creative Circle #2 of 11Creative Circle 1 of 11I am so impressed and enthused looking at the MicroVictoryArmy Stream  that I'm going to do something radical. I"m going to share my other circles, invite the members to join MVA, and then I'm going to delete all those circles so I can give more attention here.  I will keep  one circle of people like the +Dalai Lama  and +Richard Branson  who I would love to have join MVA but I don't want to lose track of if they don't. And that's it.  The Micro Victory Army is Victorious in my Circles and if you join - so are you. https://plus.google.com/communities/100245247140773385767  #microvictory  for figuring out how to enjoy G+ and manage my circles better! I'm about to delete you (unless you are in MVA - it's not personal - I still love you)2013-01-12 23:09:36146000CC G+

John Ward7,493This is my circle for Beta Readers. This circle consists of people who have volunteered to read, evaluate, and critique stories written by other people. The only qualification to be in this group is that you have to be willing to read the work of one of the other members.The way the process works is that once you join, you need to add the circle. After you have added the circle, you can send messages to the members of the group letting them know when you have a story that you'd like to have someone review. Briefly share some details about your story: genre, word count, and synopsis. Then, one of the other members will reply letting you know that they're interested. After that you can work out the best way for you to share the story with one another... and that's it.If you're interested in joining the circle, simply leave a comment here. I'm happy to add you.2012-11-30 13:44:1239603CC G+

Nina Pelletier11,765I have been requested to share my writers circle many times over the last year, but I never felt right doing it. After 2 emails I received yesterday asking so kindly that I share it yet again, I figured it's time to do so.I have over 500 writers in my writers circle because, hey, that's why I'm here right? But sadly only 500 of them can be shared at once. So you won't get all of the wonderful writerly people I have met on this lovely world we call Google+, but here are 500 of them.  Enjoy and share.If I've missed any writers, please feel free to add them in the comments below.Thank you to this awesome community of literary quirkiness and genius. ♥  #writershelpingwriters   #writers  2012-09-12 15:13:0750121411CC G+

What headphones do you wear?

I have recently come to the conclusion that, since:

1) I keep forgetting to transport my headphones to or from work and thus don't have them when I need them, and
2) My current headphones are perfect for the office and not so great for writing while out and about,

I need to buy myself a second set.  I'm picky about headphones because I find so many of them uncomfortable.  (Don't like stuff in my ears, and if the tension on the headband part is too high, I start getting headaches.)  I'm not a serious audiophile and don't care about bass or anything like that, I just need something that will effectively block out noise.

I'm inclined to pick up something cheap, but I tried on these Bose ones at Best Buy and oh dear Lord they are the most comfortable things I've ever put on my head.  Not sure ifthe... more »

Had lunch at Red Robin. Sat behind some unbelievable assholes who made them remake the order and then left without touching it. Trust fund douchebags.

On the plus side, our bartender comped our drinks (and made mine reeeeally strong) because husbandperson used to go there all the time. It pays to be a regular.

Quoting Tumblr People #12
It has once again between a while since I did one of my posts with quotes of the stuff that people on Tumblr say. This means it is time for another long post, filled with the quotes I have collected on Tumblr.

I'm not trying to start anything with the celery fandom, but it is honestly the worst vegetable.

Brace yourselves for the apocalypse, boys and girls: I'm considering starting to carry a purse.

It's probably a weird thing for a girl to say.  I carried purses when I was younger, but it wasn't as though I really had anything to keep in them.  And in my Disney days, there were a number of reasons that it was best to be able to have everything on my person: keys, phone, wallet, and reference guide all got distributed to pockets so I didn't have to mess with carry and storing anything.  And it is rather beautifully convenient not to be encumbered by baggage.

But I read a blog post about productivity management from someone who switched back to a plain old notebook after trying every productivity app out there.  It sounded awfully familiar.  I managed in high school with a written to-do list on my binder, and even now I tend to favor writing that sort of thing downover... more »

Over at the blog today, I talked a little bit about my viewpoint on rejection.  I tend to look at the whole querying process as akin to auditioning, meaning that each individual tryout (or query) isn't as important as the overall trajectory and the CV you can build.  Also, there is talk of boobs.

I've been a good little girl and haven't been talking specifics about my own querying progress, but it does rather tickle me that, less than 10 minutes after I hit publish on this, I got a request for a full.  Karma?

So, this is it.  After fifteen months, I finally get to throw away this chewed up, filthy paper pattern.  I don't need it anymore.

I'm not quite done, though.  I've printed up the shiny fresh version of the pattern, because now I need to go through and double-check the stitches, correcting the ones I missed or fucked up.  (It was really easy to miss isolated stitches before I could start seriously crossing things off, so there are still weird little gaps.)  Then it's a matter of getting this sucker properly cleaned, because that fabric is supposed to be white, and then deciding whether I'm going to fill in the background and call it a day.

SATURDAY SCENES: Chaos Theory

(Read from the beginning: http://goo.gl/z50fJB )

Marcus’s plummeting boat has brought Derek and Katrina to a dome under the ocean.

A throat cleared itself rather pointedly.  They both turned, though only Derek jumped.  Marcus stood in the one hallway that led off from the dome.  "This way," he said, and turned back the way he had come.  Katrina fell easily into step behind him, and Derek once again scurried to catch up.

They walked through a series of several corridors and domes.  Derek thought back on a school trip to the aquarium, the one with a massive shark exhibit that featured a moving walkway running through the tank so you could see the sharks swimming all around you.  He'd quite enjoyed it at the time, though he thought that the ambiance here would probably sell more tickets, especially aroundHallowee... more »

I generally like the Batman movies so far (Schumacher not withstanding), but it's a fair point that the films all tend to take the same perspective on a character whose history is long, varied, and completely batshit insane.  And I would be all bloody over a Dini-inspired DC movieverse.  It would be fun and exciting and everything we're not going to get with Zack Snyder's grimdark mess.

Came to the coffee shop to try to get some work done tonight on my stalled NaNo project.  Unfortunately, I'm seated under a vent that seems to be pulling from the dark side of Jupiter.  It's 80 degrees out and was warmer earlier, but I still walked over to CVS to get the warmest thing I could find, which was this blanket.  (A rather nice blanket, actually.)

I probably look ridiculous huddled under a blanket in public in July, but I don't care.  FUCKING COLD.

Since we had the grill going anyway, we went ahead and made S'moreos.

Oh my Zod, you guys, these are fall-of-Rome decadent.  (Although smaller marshmallows would probably be less messy.)  Naturally, I'm immediately brainstorming for ways to play with them further, which for me probably means turning them into some kind of truffle.  But there will be experiments, oh yes.

The Gratuitous Injustice of American Tipping Culture

Here's a really well-written article about the problems with the American culture of tipping. I can't say it better than the article, so you should go and read it. The best part is the suggested solution, which I will repeat below.

FTA: Packhouse Meats in Newport, Kentucky (just across the river from Cincinnati) came up with a really intriguing and wholly unique solution to the tips vs. wages conundrum. Packhouse owner Bob Conway bans all tipping within his restaurant; there are signs on the walls that tipping isn't allowed, cash tips are returned, and the credit card receipts don't even have a tips line. Instead, his servers have two choices, which they can pick between at the end of every shift: they can take a flat $10/hour rate (low, but not as catastrophically low as would be $7.25) or get paid with a... more »

SATURDAY SCENES: Chaos Theory (Part 7)

(Read from the beginning here: http://goo.gl/z50fJB)  

After emerging from the tunnels, Katrina and Derek continue their journey until they reach a beach and find their guide.

The shoreline took a sharp bend, creating a tiny, protected little inlet, too small to be a proper bay.  Tethered to a spike in the ground floated a little wooden boat, its rough boards unpainted and uneven, barely holding together.  The closer they got, the less seaworthy it appeared, and Derek realized with dismay that this vessel was their destination.

Katrina eyed the boat with mistrust when Marcus gestured for her to climb aboard.  "I don't exactly do water," she said.  "It doesn't look like your dinghy does, either."

"It'll manage," Marcus said.  "This is what you asked for,is it ... more »

We are in Vinita, Oklahoma. My mother is getting her hair done, so we figured we would find someplace to kill time. There has to be something, right?

The entire town comprises about three blocks. So since we have no desire to wander around the Walmart, we're just sitting in the car.

Oh, and this is "going into town." We had to drive about 40 minutes to get here.

Yup, I'm a city girl. This is kind of my idea of hell.

ROAD TRIP!

So my mom works at a school, which means she gets a few weeks off in the summer. She and my stepdad use this to roam the country in their RV. They're not coming through KC, but they are currently hanging out at a lake in Oklahoma. It's only a couple of hours from us, so you know what that means!

Coffee and doughnuts have been acquired.

There is a watermelon strapped into the back seat.

If I'm listening to a playlist on Songza and hear a song I like, I'd love to be able to add it to one of my Google playlists without leaving the Songza app.  Right now if I have Songza running on my iPad and try to open Play Music, Songza automatically pauses.  (Also, the "Buy" link in Songza goes to iTunes.  Come on, guys.)

SATURDAY SCENES: Child of Flame

Taking a break from Chaos Theory this week.  Here's the first scene from my WIP for Camp NaNoWriMo.

Tahi scrambled along the path, his paws slipping a bit on the smooth, damp stones.  Once he finished his apprenticeship, he told himself, no one would make him go out in the rain.  He'd find a warm spot in the den, then lick himself clean and dry before settling in for a long nap, and no one would dare tell him otherwise.  As long as his duties were fulfilled, a grown cat could go about his business however he wished.

But Tahi was not a grown cat, as the rest of the cluster delighted in reminding him.  When his master called him to the shop, Tahi had to drop everything and obey.  Regardless of the weather.

The treacherous footing demanded his full attention, leaving him little to spare for other concerns like thevoice... more »

This has been me and writing this week.  My head has just been in a fog.  I have just enough of my Camp NaNoWriMo story to get myself all tied up.  But it's a group project and I'm all committed, so I need to soldier through.

So, after I do some basic Adult Human stuff like showering and putting away the giant piles of laundry, today is going to be dedicated to writing.  I'm currently 3500 words behind, which is daunting but totally doable.  I have all kinds of fun things that I'm currently putting on hold until I've made up some significant ground on this project: a guest blog I've been invited to write, my piece for an art exchange, finally reading Gone Girl, etc.  

Enough chatter.  Let's do this.

What headphones do you wear?

I have recently come to the conclusion that, since:

1) I keep forgetting to transport my headphones to or from work and thus don't have them when I need them, and
2) My current headphones are perfect for the office and not so great for writing while out and about,

I need to buy myself a second set.  I'm picky about headphones because I find so many of them uncomfortable.  (Don't like stuff in my ears, and if the tension on the headband part is too high, I start getting headaches.)  I'm not a serious audiophile and don't care about bass or anything like that, I just need something that will effectively block out noise.

I'm inclined to pick up something cheap, but I tried on these Bose ones at Best Buy and oh dear Lord they are the most comfortable things I've ever put on my head.  Not sure ifthe... more »

I'm struggling a bit with my query and need some advice.  Here's what I'm working with:

Lacey Warren crafted her entire high school career with only one goal in mind: studying chemistry at a prestigious college, preferably one as far from home as possible.  The only thing that still stands in her way is time. Two more months of an overbearing mother, obnoxious younger brothers, and a mostly off-again boyfriend before she's free.

That squad of trolls tearing up the house?  Yeah, they have other ideas.

Getting thrown into an honest-to-god dungeon with the boys isn't even the weirdest part of it.  Not only is she starting to discover some rather unusual talents, but Lacey's now having visions that suggest her bitterly divorced parents are a witch and a demon and—most impossibly of all—are working together to find their children.  But this is alltotally ... more »

Got a bug up my ass today to reread my first NaNoWriMo outing.  Some of you may remember that one as Untitled Mystery of Mystery, and that I did a revision and was preparing to shop it around before deciding to shelve it.

Holy crap, was that a good move.  There's some pretty decent stuff in there, but it was not remotely ready for prime time.  I would have gotten my ass handed to me had I decided to query that one as it stands, and I would have absolutely deserved it.

Although I suppose it is heartening to see how far I've come in four years.

SATURDAY SCENES

(Read from the beginning at http://brittanyconstable.com/fiction/chaos-theory)

In the tunnels, Katrina leads Derek to what appears to be an abandoned camp, covered in various bits of paper.

Unconsciously, he drifted forward as he read.  His attention was thus decidedly elsewhere when the sheaves of paper flung skyward, carrying him with them -- Katrina too, from the strangled screech nearby.

The pages of notes closed in, the ink scratchings diving drunkenly at him.  It took a moment for him to realize that he was flailing wildly and thus making the confusion much worse.  A sharp kick landed on his arm -- deliberately aimed, as his companion did not share his panicked reaction.  He subsided, sorting out with far too much difficulty that he lay more or less on his back, staring up at a web of cracks on the ceiling.
