And in comes that cold change, all of a sudden. Autumn rolling in, the sunlight cut with a chill now. Brisk, welcome, head-clearing autumn.

I successfully flogged a poem to Tincture, a writers’ e-zine, for the grand sum of twenty dollars – not to be sniffed at, that’s a good meal and a coffee, or almost a pouch of tobacco. That issue has just come out. They’re a pretty neat little publication, only up to issue nine, and needing every bit of support they can get – so if it tickles your fancy, grab yourself an issue – it’s not dear and can be found here

Oh, that’s another thing – I’ve started to subscribe to all sorts of stuff. I never used to, but Wet Ink, a quality little writer’s mag that I simultaneously loved, hated, and aspired to get into one day, and bought every now and again but read at the newsagents’ religiously, folded without any warning due to lack of funds. That kind of rocked me, as I always saw it as something of an institution. Since then, yeah, I have even more of a chronic case of bachelor-fridge (beer and condiments) than usual, but no shortage of good reading arriving by post and email. Doing penance, you could say.

Still writing, still drawing, still no scanner to upload new work with. Still working.

…And, at the ripe age of 26 and 27 respectively, myself and a dear friend have taken to co-writing fanfiction. The first couple of chapters of our comedy-ish, dialogue-heavy labour of loopiness and love of Far Cry can be found at AO3 and under the username FriedensPanzer.…

Because why not. Besides, it gets me writing dialogue, and funny things, and confrontation – in short, everything there is something of a dearth of in my short fiction.

I’m working on making the fact that I have a sense of humour more perceptible to non-telepaths, in life as in fiction, heh.

Anyone I owe a note or a reply, I’ll get to it soon – I’ve been a bit communicationally tongue-tied lately, and presently blanch in terror at the sight of a blank message window asking to be filled. For no reason whatsoever. Y’know how it gets sometimes….

thanks for adding rapture to your favourites.

'tis appreciated!

excuse my ignorance, but what's the TL/DR boundary?

*smiles* My pleasure. I've taken photos of similar subject matter, but never to the effect you managed to achieve there. It almost looks like tattered feathers or cloth  rather than plastic.
TL/DR is "too long, didn't read"... And I assume you survived that entire blog post? I never know when long-form ends and too-long-form begins...
