Aaand here's the third part of my art post. Since this will be the first one most people see, these are more recent pictures of the huge chunk I just scanned dating back to last March.

Image heavy!

Here's the second part of my three-part art post of pictures I've drawn since last March or so. I need to keep up with my scanning better! Things get smudged otherwise.

10110 words! I bet that's something in binary.

Pearl has left the building village! FINALLY ZOMG.

Now, East, get your butt moving so I can have you stumble over our next major character*.

Jaaaack is eeeemo. *points to current music and hearts Jack*

Write-in at the Starbuck's in Epping tomorrow! At. Um. Some time we need to find out, probably.

*Rufus. Kicked out of the sea guard for not having a long enough attention span, stole somebody's patchwork costume, and is now sleeping somewhere under a pile of pigs. Or something. Also knows where Pearl went, so --> useful to plot furtherance.

So far, this is what has happened in my Nano:

- East and her dad fish
- Pearl finds her entire family embarrassing
- Mora (the stepmother) suggests that East's father wear a bonnet
- East beats several men at precision rock-throwing
- Two girls win the Harvest Festival dancing contest
- People eat a lot of turnips and potatoes

Soon to be storytelling and plot-revealing!

[livejournal.com profile] caitirin: *out of the blue* I'm cold, give it up! *yanks blanket*
[livejournal.com profile] elaby: O.o! You could've said something!
[livejournal.com profile] caitirin: *falls over giggling* I mean, "Could I share some of your blanket, please, most wonderful girl in the whole world who isn't a meanie poot like me?"
[livejournal.com profile] elaby: Certainly.
elaby: (Mummy - huh?)
[livejournal.com profile] caitirin: *is cold, but doesn't want to move the blanket from the end of the bed because there's a kitty sleeping on it* I'm cold. But I don't want to get up.
[livejournal.com profile] elaby: *tries to get a sweater out of the closet using the Force* *fails*
[livejournal.com profile] caitirin: *pulls arms inside shirt and uses hands to flail sleeves about* I can type my novel this way, right? *flails at keyboard*
[livejournal.com profile] elaby: ... Totally!
[livejournal.com profile] caitirin *whap whap* I typed a 9! I'll just do it this way. My novel will probably make more sense.
elaby: (Saionji - tonight)
Holy cow, Nano starts tomorrow. I am SO UNDERPREPARED *hysterical laughter*

But East's sister's name is Pearl!

Now I just need names for the rest of the characters and all of the important places XD

Happy Halloween and happy Samhain! We buried an apple on a hill for the passing spirits. Then we put the jack-o-lanterns we carved last night with [livejournal.com profile] minyan on the porch and lit them :) One is still lit! Probably the one with the huge-ass candle in it. I also had some hot apple cider with a cinnamon stick in it. It was delightful.

Off to plan more for Nano! Thank you all for your great questions and suggestions on my last post :)

Idea and post stolen from [livejournal.com profile] dakegra (with permission, thanks!)

Been thinking about NaNo, and whilst I have a pretty good idea of what I want to do this year (fishermen and dragon people), I think it might be a good idea to stock up on prompts and other ideas.

for example, [livejournal.com profile] dakegra's character Monty has a scar, and someone could ask about it. Bingo 1000 words telling about how he got the scar,

That's the kind of thing I'm looking for. Words, phrases, character names, ideas to throw into the mix. I can put them onto cards and shuffle them to pick out a prompt for when I'm feeling stuck...

East - Fisherwoman, oldest daughter of two, helps father fish, mother died a few years ago and father remarried. Tall and somewhat rough and unladylike by necessity. Doesn't like being inside. Nurtures younger sister.
East's sister (needs name) - 11 years old, rebellious, discontent, showing signs of emerging dragon-people blood that has been cropping up in adolescents
Dragon Boy (needs name) - Half dragon-person and half human, lived in East's village and was friends with her until they were around 6 or 7 and his mother took him to live with her dragon-people. Hasn't met East since but is somewhat in love with the idea of her.

So, go!

Yet another Mac question!

How do I set something as my default program to open a kind of file with? I tried going to "Open With" and then clicking the "Always Open With" checkbox, but that seems to be specific to that one file and not to all files with the same extension. I figured it would be in some kind of Finder preferences and not in the program's preferences, so I haven't slogged through those yet. I tried Finder Help and came up with nothing, though I may be using wrong search terms. I figured I'd ask my all-knowing f'list first :)

In other news, there's nothing new on the cool job front, but I was asked for additional information, so I think that's a good sign. We leave for Florida (EEEEE!) in five days.

And Nano starts in half a month!

So far, my plans for Nano include:
