Happy October

Write some B/A fic totaling at least 5000 words: Worked on it.

Original fiction:
Complete my original short story "Retronym": Worked on it.
Plot out the first arc for my other comic: Worked on it.


Make something for my nephew and/or nieces: Sculpted and baked a little Fluffy (their cat). Painting is going to be the hard part for this one, since it's meant to be a real cat whom I don't live with, but I'm so glad I got this far!
Complete any kind of painting: Uh, cut out a piece of watercolor paper and left it on the table with my paints, does that count for anything?
Use Photoshop: Got a "teach yourself" book from the library, and surprisingly it's a big help.

Finish a book a month: The Silmarillion by JRR Tolkien. It picks up speed as it goes on, or maybe that was just me. I thought there would be more about the Third Age, though, particularly the Istari and other background that was directly relevant to LotR. I guess that's in another tome, which I may go looking for someday.
Get a Wheel of Time refresher: Finished reading/skimming The Eye of the World; haven't yet started The Great Hunt. I did really enjoy it though, and I found this nifty resource for feeling engaged even without a fandom or reading buddy.
Read one poem every night before going to sleep: Doing fine. I'll finish the Robert Frost before the end of the year but can't narrow it down more than that.

Catch up on Game of Thrones: Finished S5, pre-ordered S6. Post to come.
Revive my BtVS episode reviews: Yup! I know there's only been a couple but I feel motivated to continue. Finally!

Finish and post my homebrew 30-day meme: Worked on it.

Pretty good month! Hopefully the stuff that I started will pay off next month.

  • Review etc: Lie to Me

    Yeah the last one was "The Pack" and now I'm suddenly in S2, but I've explained elsewhere how it all makes sense. The topic today is lying, and…
