borealgrove: Dionysus fulfills his promise to Prosymnus (Rite of Spring)
My god, it's been a long while since I last posted--I've been trying to catch up on emails and messages, as well as writing up a small but steady storm. So this is just going to be a lazy mish-mash of interesting tidbits about what's been going on.

I'll start with a concise write-up of the con I attended: it was fun. Alright, I'll give a little more than that.

Last weekend, I went axe-throwing at our local axe-throwing place (as you do), and it was fun. I wasn't very into the competitive, scoring aspect of the practice, mostly because all I cared about was seeing whether or not I could hit the board in the first place (took a while), but I might go back again in the future just to get some aggression out.

After that, I finally finished and posted the next chapter in FS, and since then have been hard at work on the next. The writing notebook I bring everywhere is practically falling apart with all the extra paper scraps I've shoved into it. I may soon have to retire it and start on the next one. It's just so much more practical for me to jot down notes by hand during my breaks at work, and I like being able to line scraps up side by side, circle things, highlight, underline, draw cat faces... yeah, I do that. Ooops.

This week has been mostly an effort to catch up on the messages and emails and things I mentioned above, but I've also spent a little time relaxing after work (the writing-intensive week extended into this one, and will continue on to the next, which I'm certainly not complaining about!), which meant watching more of season 4 of The 100 (nearly ragequit after a certain character death, but have pressed on and there have been some interesting themes, to say the least). I've also been catching up on the seasons of Shameless (US) that I missed, a series that I easily become obsessed with because of all the dark humour, difficult topics, and extensive character study. Haven't been able to bring myself to get into the original, UK version though... I watched too much of the US version beforehand and so those versions of the characters became too entrenched in my mind.

Now on to some reading material recs:

Umm... what else? I've got a ticket to go see Wonder Woman on opening night with my best friends, so the energy for that showing should be awesome. I am currently making pancakes (and found a little beetle in the flour when I was preparing the batter... lil scamp), and I intend to spend the next hour or two slowly eating my pancakes and watching more Shameless. Then I'll write.
