Conlanging

Started cracking the code of my old script for Kalyeshur / Vas'hehr. I've figured out about five or six glyphs.

Lexember Word for the Day

tonga • / to ŋa / • letter or glyph in a writing system
noun without finalized declension forms, so I can't offer example sentences or constructions at this time
Language: Akachenti


Work

Possible breakthrough on a testing issue that we'd deferred for major feature development/rework/refactoring and here! A lead that may result in a fix without having to wait for the pre-Easter development cycle.

Tonight more smoke testing. I may be up all night, considering the last deploy.


Reading

Good Articles I Read:

It's Thursday, so it's time to go read the Business Rusch.

Books I Want:


  • Women of Futures Past: Classic Stories, edited by Kristine Kathryn Rusch - I mean, look at that cover, it's gorgeous! And I adore women and girls in my science fiction. 'Nuff said.
    Meet the Women of Futures Past: from Grand Master Andre Norton and the beloved Anne McCaffrey to some of the most popular SF writers today, such as Lois McMaster Bujold and CJ Cherryh. The most influential writers of multiple generations are found in these pages, delivering lost classics and foundational touchstones that shaped the field.

    You'll find Northwest Smith, C.L. Moore’s famous smuggler who predates (and maybe inspired) Han Solo by four decades. Read Leigh Brackett’s fiction and see why George Lucas chose her to write The Empire Strikes Back. Adventure tales, post‑apocalyptic visions, space opera, aliens‑among‑us, time travel—these women have delivered all this and more, some of the best science fiction ever written!




Writing

Didn't have a lot of actual time for that today, but I got a poem done anyway. Not a very good one, but it exists.

Strait

There's the fast way,
then there's the easy way,
the last way we did,
and the right way.

There's the quality way
and the quantity way,
the way things are done,
and the right way.

I've worked hard and fast,
I've worked smarter, not harder,
what we've always done,
and non-starters.

I've tried all the methods
and done all the tests:
when all's said and done,
the right way is best.

And a somewhat better haiku

if joy comes with morn
then still as snow, I will wait
through ungentle night

PORTRAIT OF THE SCRIBBLER


I am one of those people—

(they say you’d have to know me

to love me; do not try too hard)

the kind you wish you’d meet;

the kind you wish you’d never meet:

the kind who makes unnecessary

grand announcements: let

it be hereknown, I feel this way

(you couldn’t care? why don’t you say!);

who transforms life to drama, singing

eclectic lines from favorite songs

(do not worry; this won’t take long);

who softly, yet sarcastically

pedals backward, lunges forward

(uncertainty is so untoward);

who offers love—platonically—

too readily, or so I’m told

(living life is for the bold);

who will listen carefully

until the flash of inspiration

interrupting conversation

(writing is my meditation);

who’s organized and yet chaotic,

whose stacks of papers overflow

(at least I have them, neat or no);

who’s like to answer every question,

even the rhetorical

(I’m just a tad too literal)—

the kind who always has your back

but forgets to cut you slack;

the kind who wishes harder than

she works, but yet still works;

the kind who hopes and then despairs

then hopes again, and then despairs;

the kind who of herself thinks nothing

then turns around and puts on airs;

the kind who tells you right and wrong

by every school of grammar and thought,

then sheepishly admits she’s wrong

and humbly admires your better thought;

the kind who writes and too well thinks

of her own words, of her own words;

who knows that there are better things,

but always comes right back to words.

  1. I realized I'm still out of habit of posting to my regular blog. Oops.

  2. I'm a third of the way through my beta and trying not to panic because waaaaay down to the wire on my exchange fic.

  3. My two jobs have gone crazy hectic and I'm exhausted because of overtime.

  4. Nevertheless, accidentally wrote a poem today:



Walk gently into the woods
Don’t startle the deer
Their antlers are green and growing—
Pointed, sharp
Be careful under the trees
Don't startle the birds
With their talons and black feathers
And bright eyes

Come with me by the path
That wends its way
Through thickets, thorny hedges
Over the stream
Be careful over the bridge
It has been years
Since boots that walked here once
Now walk again


See you all (and talk to you all and reply to your comments and messages and agh! I'm so behind) soon I hope.

So I was just talking with [livejournal.com profile] hiddencait the other day about scanning poetry metrically and syllabically and now I have to do it. I forgot how painful it can be.

I was flipping between iambs and trochees with the occasional anapest or dactyl for good measure and willy nilly between tetrameter and pentameter. The only thing I'd settle on was trimeter for the last line of each stanza.

:headdesk:

I think I'm going about this all wrong. Poetry isn't the thing like prose, where I get it down and then I can make something of it. No, I have to get something good down and tweak or get it down all over again. It took seven tries to get "Name Me." Of course, that poem was also pages long.
scribblemyname: (calligraphy)
On looking into my email inbox...

Oh, hello, poem! I forgot I'd submitted you.

I submitted a 346 line SFF poem to Strange Horizons (apparently I can be very long-winded; who's surprised?), and they thought about it, bumped it back, and suggested I submit it to a different market because reasons they outlined.

Now, the last time I got a rejection, I commented here that I'd come to expect them and it wasn't really a big deal. But today, I realized something else: I'm getting personalized rejections where my work affected the editor even if they decided ultimately not to publish it.

:cue surprise:

I always thought I was a bit of a take it or leave it kind of girl when it came to writing and I have almost no luck finding an actual good fit for any poetry, so it's been my own thing, mostly for myself with the occasional piece or book finding its way to family or friend.

And part of my secret to writing so frequently and so easily when it comes to works under 5000 words is that I just do it all the time. Words aren't sacred, they're words, and I accept that the only way to produce a lot of great fiction and poetry is to produce a lot of bad fiction and poetry. The stuff that wavers between good and bad is 50/50 whether I'll throw it out there. So there's a lot of bad poetry and mediocre poetry I have under my belt, and it never really occurred to me that there was a lot of good poetry that wasn't just amateur anymore.

I had decided to quit submitting poetry because finding the right market for the stuff I write hasn't always been easy. My narrative stuff is... challenging, epic, or just plain odd. My greeting card verse and personal stuff sometimes feels trite. I don't read the literary, personal, reflective stuff in periodicals, so I don't actually know where to send the loads of that I write. I like form poetry and that's even harder to place.

Now I don't really know. Is it worth the bother? Poetry takes months to come back. By then, I'm often staring at the inbox going, "Oh, I forgot about you!" And it's almost always rejected. (I've had one poem published and it got a bad review there for flowery language and old-fashioned style, which I didn't even know it had.)

Maybe poetry will stay this personal thing. Maybe I'll start treating it a little more seriously. Just some thoughts.

Songs from the Dust: Poems

Songs from the Dust

Poems

Paperback

O sweet blue coffee cups and sweet brown tea
A storm is brewing up over the sea

Thirty-three poems chronicle stories of myth, wonder, relationships, and love. From the dancer of binary to the queen of heaven, these are songs born from dust, ash, and the ending—and beginning—of worlds.

This is what happens when I get tired and my brain shuts down. I end up writing poetry instead of fiction or research or anything useful or productive. At least something happened, but I feel woefully remiss towards certain people who were hoping for some cheering material soon, who are also not fond of poetry.

I’m very sorry
I hope you’ll forgive
The muse slipped out
O’ my ‘mind like a sieve’

March 24, 2014

So it started with this story that had played in my head overnight, but it was too long and complex to justify writing, so in the morning when it started coalescing into a poem on me, I memorized the lines and stanzas in my head and at work, I wrangled them into something I liked. All 136 lines of it.

I sent it to lithiumlaughter who likes poetry and she blessed me with an amazing review that inspired poem #2: "Tale of Domestic Life in a Series of Coffee Cups."

Did some research for thecatisacritic before brain stopped cooperating again.

The idea of a poetry collection for Kingdoms and Thorn pestered me and then another poem did. I wrote it down and loved it.

I peeked inside the books of Billy Collins and got a little more inspired. There went four more small poems.

Did more research and chatting with thecatisacritic.

Tried two more poems with less than great success. I wrote "The Cup" and promptly deleted most of it. "Daughter" started out better—twice—before I gave up on it.

This evening, the mass market edition of Dowse and Bleed arrived. It's stunning and full of little fixes I need to make, but it is stunning. I love it.

So I wrote a couple poems: "Rothnen" in my head on the way to work and one for a friend because when I started to reply it came out in verse. Go figure. I edited and expanded the opening of "Justice," which added 162 words, and I pulled together the first draft of the opening of "Blank Verse" in 35 lines of 252 words. I'm double-formatting it, lineated and non-lineated. It helps me see the flaws more clearly while meeting the ridiculously exacting standards I just set for myself. :makes face:

So I started off by getting back to my betas for the Invisible Ficathon, then wrote 118 words of the mass market blog posts.

It was a type, delete day on the collaboration, then I diverted into fandom because...

I got a fandom gift for my very belated birthday (thank you, lithiumlaughter!) and it inspired 893 words of fanfic reply and a poem:

Written under, the wires crossed
The symphony begins to swell
One, two, three and red on my bones
Everything’s blood and all is well

Waltz with war and tango death
Fate is but the archer’s eye
The reverie begins to play
Everything’s blood; let arrows fly

I breathe your blood, I bleed my name
We’re lost within a sea of red
Your name is written in my bones
Everything’s blood where angels fled

Fired until we cannot break
Mark the clock for time will tell
The music clicks beneath the gun
Everything’s blood and all is well

February 28, 2014

This morning, I wrote 156 words puttering in my head from last night on Lovemark the Seasons, including another in-story poem. Rachelle is well-read.

So the trade paperback of Dowse and Bleed is available on Amazon. I still have to get all the other formats up: mass market and ebook to the various retailers. :grimaces: Later. I'm saving the whole book announcement post until then.

I'd like to get some good words on collab and on my actual assignment. I keep getting bogged down in author's notes and meta. And music. It's thecatisacritic's fault. She sent me "Poison and Wine" and I looked it up online the other day and have lost so many good hours since. I can't say wasted because seriously, the creative fire! Love their work.

Having a fandom moment:

Four: The Traitor by Veronica Roth

See all of the covers here.

March 1, 2014

Sabbath and unexpected late-night family time. Wrote a poem in my head and didn't get it written down, just memorized.

March 2, 2014

I owe y'all an end of the month post and challenge check-in. Tomorrow! Today, I helped my aunt move and still need to plunk in 2 hours on packing my own things, plus got back my beta for invisible treats (which resulted in 6 words worth of edits, wow), plus submitted the edited cover for the mass market of Dowse and Bleed. Oh, and finally wrote down that poem.

I owe a bunch of collaboration material. I owe my Invisible assignment. I owe posts about indie community and fandom. I owe a lot of stuff, 'kay?

I have also been failing miserably at the 7-sentence challenge so went back last night and wrote 257 words on, unexpectedly, a very late fandom gift separate from challenges.

Currently rather frustrated so will bury my head in work and not talk to anyone. I don’t want to be a snappish dragon.

Writer’s Social Therapy

I don’t want to be a snappish dragon
I don’t want to snarl and blow
Say nothing, I know, if I can’t say it nicely
So down in the scribbles I go #

Had a chat that perked me up a good bit. Yay.

Writing

Got working on Tracing Trouble and decided that nothing I was writing was working. Which is a pain. I'm about ready to cull through the twenty-two versions of Dowse and Bleed to figure out how I got from point A to point B, but I think I should probably just find a different way to go with this and get going.

Yeah. Sure. :rolls eyes at self:

Never mind. Very frustrated. Tried a few other stories: collaboration, Splintered, other K&T stories— No dice.

Reading

Yesterday, agreed to give a SF thriller a whirl, solely because of the SF not the thriller bit. It's called iSeal and shall hang out in my email inbox until I'm ready to get to it. My to be read pile is getting ridiculous. :grins:

Didn't even read anything today except stuff I'm trying to write and an SEO book for/at work. Required reading, but lovely. I actually want to learn about SEO.

So no recreational reading today. Pity that.

Publishing

When all else fails, format. Left off on page 38 of justification on Dowse and Bleed.

Technical Difficulties

Ran out of time to do a full scan and the quick virus scan turned up nothing. I have a plan. Tomorrow's dance card is getting mighty full.

Writing

Managed to add another 166 words to the front end of Tracing Trouble. I really do need to rename it. I'll get there. I don't expect to get any more writing done tonight. Naturally, I'll update if anything changes.
