    Completed? God only knows.

    Working on? Do stalled things count?

    In theory I am working on an order three dogic (think this, but with three things per edge instead of two), a corner-less 4x4x4 (this but truncated so much that the corners disappear), an order four cross cube (this but with four pieces per edge instead of three), and that’s just the crap on my table.

    I keep on meaning to get back to the princess story, which at the moment hasn’t been updated since I made part one a little over a year ago. Ditto for the band story which hasn’t been updated since I wrote three disconnected pieces (tw: transphobic bullying Beginning, Early Middle, Late middle) in January.

    I’ve been trying to get myself back into doing .hack//Sign posts and Deus Ex ones.

    For that matter, My Zombie Apocalypse Team hasn’t had a fresh installment in three months.

    In progress: Leah Far-Sighted, of course. A UU lay-service sermon slash Slacktiverse post on art as community; I keep stalling out on how all my experience of same is fannish and I don’t know how well that’ll translate to the congregation, which is a problem since the service is scheduled for Oct 20. Cleaning this damn desk.

    Completed: A ballad for with an autumn theme. I’m waiting to post it until my friend sings it (to the tune of one of the many songs in ballad meter–might be “Amazing Grace”, might be “Gilligan’s Island Theme”) like she said would be cool to do.

    It’s been a very long time since I’ve posted anything here (last time was back in the Typepad days I think). Anyway, I’m helping create a new website. It’s called Limina, and it’s going to be an online magazine for women to write about faith, culture, politics, and the overall impact of religion in society. Right now we exist as afacebook page and are doing an
    indiegogo fundraiser to help pay for the website.

    Taking a short break from my novel for now (53000/70000 words done, 29/39 scenes done) to edit and then submit a trio of short stories. One’s been rejected 4 times before (just sent it out yesterday for try #5), one’s been rejected once (currently editing it), and one’s brand new. Hoping to get that done in fairly short order. I feel better when I have stories in submission, even if I know it’s unlikely they’ll be accepted.

    I am still working on “Conflicts of Interest,” my second SW:TOR fanfic. I suppose part of why I keep getting stuck is that I don’t actually like having my heroes in conflict with one another, but I can’t have them solve things too quickly, either. *sigh*

    Lonespark has recomended expanding the the Daphne and Leukippos story into a longer work with more detail. So I’ll be thinking about that.

    Just finished the first version, and working on the second version, of a giant stompy robot combat boardgame.

    Victoria, that project sounds super-interesting.

    Chris: Yay!

    I’m not really working on any writing projects presently, but I do have crochet projects to work on. Notably, I recently got a Fitbit activity tracker, which comes with a wristband so you can wear it at night to track sleep. Two problems: 1) I keep misplacing the wristband and 2) because it’s black, it’s not real comfortable to wear in an un-airconditioned house in the summer. So, I’m working on crocheting a replacement wristband in a light color using an elasticized cotton yarn. I’m basically designing the thing as I go.

    Would that work to make watchbands?

    Oh, hey, update. I wrote more of the princess story.

    I’ve been transcribing some of E. Nesbit’s lesser-known books for Project Gutenberg (or whatever other repository wants to host them). I’ve largely finished with The Wonderful Garden and Wet Magic, and now I’m working on her adult science fiction novel Dormant. (Wet Magic is already available at a site called Forgotten Futures, but my transcription is considerably more accurate).

    Thanks, Steve — I’ve let Marcus know.

  14. Steve Morrison October 5, 2013 at 1:43 pm

    And thanks for that, Firedrake. I’ve just uploaded both of them to a file sharing site, along with a Leonard Woolf novel, The Village in the Jungle. I still intend to tweak the formatting on all of them, but the actual text is probably finished. If anyone wants to look at them, the links are:
    Wet Magic
    The Wonderful Garden
    The Village in the Jungle.
    They’ll stay up for thirty days after the last download.
