So I could featured image to add post icons on my actual website. I missed having them from LJ.


Also discovered I have not kept the August fic and poetry masterpost updated. Get right on that.


Tomorrow. Or after I move.

  • No one will ever want to read the things I want to write

  • No one will ever care about my characters but me

  • There are more productive things to do with my time

  • Why can’t I do something more important than worldbuilding?

  • Why can’t I do something more valuable than conlanging?

  • Why can’t I be the person everyone thinks I should be?

  • Why does nothing I do matter?


And then I try to think about every person who’s ever read my stories or poems and loved them, every encouraging word I’ve ever gotten in my anxious moments, every time someone has expressed an interest in my conlanging, and I think to myself, don’t give up yet.

This isn’t the first time you’ve done this

Disappointed me in my grief

This isn’t the first time you’ve brought me

To tears and to disbelief

But I will find from inside me

The strength to give praise to my God

For even from this, He can save me

Even from this, can bring good

Sometimes, you lose a poem

It falls from your mind like drops of sunlight

Pouring molten into the next

At least, you pray, it’ll have a good rest

On fannish things:



  1. my recipient may hate this story as much as I don’t love it, but I am going to finish it, so help me

  2. I’m going to have to write Maria + her gen relationships in most situations, because I actually want to write tielan some Maria Hill, but every time MCU gets me even slightly interested in Steve, they then go and ruin it. I’m never going to love his character, so I’m going to accept that and resolve to write more gen. I do like gen. I just wanted to write shipfic. 🙁


On conlang things:



  1. I updated my consonant phonology table: basically does a much better job with the clicks

  2. I did other work in a notebook that hasn’t been digitalized yet


On real life:



  1. We’re moving in a week. I’m not ready. :screams:

we conquered cities

we stomped our feet

danced our war

to every beat

of our twin hearts

and no retreat

cry, my love

the taste is sweet

I really need to get my exchange fic written. Odds are not good.


Wrote a poem:


we are tired

of the heavy places,

the deep tirades,

required graces,

every word

you ever spoke

from the day

my eyes awoke




Conlanging


I am hopelessly not up to the challenges, but I did do some work today. First, a word:


akuint • [ a.kui̯nt ] • 1. to sing, 2. to chant (a prayer or traditional song, particularly in a religious or formal ceremony), 3. to appease one more powerful with words, prayer, or song — verb


Then also, I figured out that Akachenti’s tendency to promote proximate, animate persons up a level may have come from originally have a proximate/distal distinction in second and third person pronouns and the agreement markers having merged. I’m not sure yet, but it seems more plausible than just willy nilly deciding that proximate third persons are really second persons, etc.

So I renamed my first tumblr and started queuing up posts. We’ll see how long it lasts.


scribblemyname: (Default)

Today, I remind myself

there is always cause to give thanks:

breath is in my lungs,

and I am alive to praise

the God who makes my heart

beat and gives me song

to carry me through the night

and days that are too long.

Morning breaks the night

Dawn shatters in light

Hours passed like dreams

Nothing what it seems

Dear creator after my own heart,


I swear if you write anything for one of these pairings/fandoms, I will love you forever and reread regularly because I love every one of these to pieces and have very little for them right now. And I love everything I have for them now, there’s just not nearly enough of it.


Please don’t be intimidated by the wall of text. Take what you need, ignore the rest.

A bit tired. (understatement)


Felt rather unproductive at work this week and hoping to sleep it off in time for a Sunday of pack, pack, pack and sign up for Fandom Growth Exchange, which I absolutely should not do, but when else can you get this tiny, tiny stuff written?


:sigh:


We’ll see.
