Chapter four of Mili is done, but oh, it's so so bad. It'll need a drastic rewrite, but right now, it also needs to ferment. I think the only thing that will really improve it is finishing more of the story and finding out what really needs to be done there. Yes, we need Raelos and a certain scene, but maybe I should just cut it down. With the axe of god.

Anyway, three is behind the cut )

The photography project from this weekend, although over, only continues to foster more excitement in my bones. I can't wait to link to the finished project but - avast - it's not yet finished. There are murmurings of a continuation of the project amongst the participants that I hope takes some root.

I might take my camera with me to work tomorrow. The rapture that the camera instills in me is overcoming the fear of possible embarrassment at lugging around such a big thing in public. Which, if you really know me, speaks volumes to said rapture. Maybe I'll make my lunch breaks into photo projects; it's not like downtown Seattle is lacking in interesting subjects. Either way, this weekend will see many photos uploaded to FB and flickr.

Although, I really need to focus on Mili. I would really like to get her to Asarek so the plot will finally feel like it has some direction. Also, writing. Just need to be writing. Playing with my camera, even though it's instant gratification, should not be taking precedence over that.

Also, I'll probably be rather cranky these next few days. I'm cutting back on the caffeine again because the attacks are back. I'm getting quicker at recognizing them for what they are and clamping down on them, but they still persist in the back of my head, questioning every single pain. I hate it, but it's partially my fault. I know this happens when I don't exercise and eat poorly and over stress. I can get a handle on this. I can. I'm not crazy. Not clinically.

So - ! To writing. And not to getting distracted by the revolution in Iran, no matter how riveting it may be.

Ended up coming home early again today anyway. That's what I get for claiming I'm not sick anymore. Felt all woozy and fainty and just couldn't get anything done, and apparently was scaring the coworkers a little to boot. So home and more sleep and then baking in the apartment because it's over 80 out and we haven't got a fan let alone a/c. Let it rain please. Or at least give us some clouds.

Edited chapter two of Mili a bit. Still lacking in parts, but I suspect they'll find ways to be fleshed out after I've established more of the plot. Now that I'm not sick nor traveling far and distant places maybe I can get back to this writing thing and get a chapter a week done. That would be lovely.

Chapter Two )

I finished editing chapter two, so here's chapter one of Mili, a story about a rebel, recently released from prison and now fleeing capture and certain death, while seeking out her fellow conspirators to overthrow the new emperor, also with gods, undead assassins, midnight fights and escapes, unlikely explosions, and magical bandits.

Chapter One )

When I finish chapter three and edit two, I'll post two. This chapter's kinda weak; I like the next a lot better.
