Realm of the InterNutter

Thoughts, stories and ideas.

There goes that PLN

I woke up at arse AM again, and I set down with a solid plan to edit an episode of Inter-Mission for y'all. Good plan, right?

Except Mayhem was also awake at arse AM and that lead to a shitpost philosophy session that is fun, but... no editing possible. Bleh.

I'm waiting for the still of the day then.

In the meantime, I have identified an agency that says they want scifi, so I'm sending them my scifi. I'm giving them two weeks, since they haven't given me a time limit to expect a reply, and then I'm out after the next one.

The query letter is off. Cross your fingers, pray to the Flying Spaghetti Monster, fold a thousand paper cranes... invoke your luck roll, whatever. Send me all your good vibes.

I'm not giving up on this.

"I want to Break Free,

I want to Breeeeaaak free,

I want, I want, I Want to BREEEEAAAAAKKK FREEEEEE"

The Human, as a species renowned for their ability to improvise and thoroughly mess with the plans of many a pirate, had been confined to a specially designed clear polymer box. With small vents high in the roof of the structure, only the single access point and TWO guards stationed far enough away that noxious gasses and liquids emitted by the human would

Embuggerance

So. Yesterday's PLN to go seeking publishers/agents went awry. Why? Because yet another instance of site skimming apps cropped up and this time, I had to take action.

Site skimmer apps are more or less little bots that go through other sites' content and present it as their own. Some are little more than cosmetic windows by which users can interface with the site, others... copy without permission.

What they all do is remove traffic from the origin site, so statistics

Challenge #02595-G038: Sharing and Caring Intertwined

It that time of year where I don’t want to get out of my bed and chug hot chocolate down my esophagus, with any combination of sweets from marshmallows to the leftover candy-canes to The weird but tasty treats my aunt gave me. I’m sure I will be able to find a combination that is not toxic to my crew mates -- Anon Guest

Humans, it seems, have a seasonal awareness that stretches out to places where seasons are non-existence.

AAAAAAHHHH!

Okay. Now that I am no longer obsessing about getting last year's Year of Instants out into the world, I can now obsess about selling off Adapting to some luckless lucky soul out there that I can find who might just be interested in this kind of thing.

The usual run of madness be happening today. Money run, house unfuckening, Instant and 500 words in the novel. I have money in the bank again, but I'm still pulling my head in because

Challenge #02594-G037: And a Macaroni Necklace

He owned, of all things, a trash planet. How did he manage to own an entire planet? Well, when you have an IQ that puts nearly all of the rest of the human race to shame, it's not hard to figure out how to get ownership of such a thing. Besides, no one argued much when he won the bet and requested a trash planet in a rather out-of-the-way area of space as his reward. And, with it, he was able to

Good Morning!

Thank goodness Beloved woke me up at Midnight because I forgot to re-activate my Toasty Stream Alert (tm) so I could be there for the creation of wonderful.

There is a very strong temptation, now to write a new ficcy in the Divinity Universe where the Old Executioner [you see him in the opening minute of the Church Animatic] escapes with kid!Sanga and Ashivon. Because a found family on a road trip home flicks all my buttons.

It's going to be

Challenge #02593-G036: Safe As...

True friendship is letting a small havenworlder ride around in a pouch that you're wearing so they feel secure surrounded by the other deathworlders that they wanted to do business with in the first place. Seriously. Why do you do this to me? -- Escla

Size is something interesting within the boundaries of Galactic Alliance space. Intelligent life can take very many forms, depending on the gravity they evolved in. There are some, like the Xyrak'l, that have shown signs of intelligent

We had fun.

Too much bad food. Just enough bad TV. I heartily recommend Velocipastor as the new Plan 9 From Outer Space. It is very clearly something some people filmed in and around their homes, with their mates, possibly while drunk.

Beloved suspects it was written, directed, and edited whilst drunk. It would explain a lot, actually.

For those of you who love terrible movies, this one is a GEM. 10/10, would laugh at again.

Since my family actually got out of bed

Challenge #02592-G035: Critical Flaw Located

A: explain to me why again you were fighting?

B: I was getting rusty, I needed someone to spar with.

A: was it necessary to create a hole in the floor?

B: you said it was reinforced! -- Anon Guest

Human Sym was embedded in the flooring. Her legs were technically within the floor below, but also tangled up in sensitive, very important, and also more than a little delicate - wiring and equipment. Human Per, her sparring partner, was crouching and

Friday! AAAAAAHHH!

I edited the heck out of an episode, but I've yet to introduce the background music. I've also found out that I'm an episode behind, so there goes some significant portion of my weekend.

I'm short by one episode so, theoretically, I should be able to make that happen during the following fortnight. Theoretically.

Today, I should be able to get the music in the current episode. Tomorrow, recording the next batch of stories. The day after? Who can tell.

It's Valentine's

Challenge #02591-G034: Conspiracy to Spread Joy

There are those that are not fans of the holiday season. The reasons are as myriad as the individuals themselves. But then there are those who not only enjoy the seasons, but absolutely revel in them. All around the station they were showing up outside of doors. Showing up at people's workstations and amongst ship supplies. Carefully wrapped gifts. It only had three words on it "From a friend"

No one claimed responsibility for these actions and no one was usually around

Thursday Already?

Well shoot. I really need to edit that episode because a new one's gonna be published TOMORROW and oh my goodness what a mess.

I also need to find time to get Chaos some regulation pants. So that promises to be "fun".

I'm going to do everything I can and hope the windows align. Hope the money lasts. Hope for deliverance (cha cha cha).

I seriously have to get my shit together.

Challenge #02590-G033: Let's Pretend For a While

There are people who will shout from wherever they can find to shout from that autism isn't a disability. That it should be celebrated. And I have to wonder if those people have ever found themselves so upset they couldn't talk, so frustrated that they couldn't control where their hands went, movements jerky, not even able to prepare a hot breakfast out of the knowledge that they'd burn themselves accidentally if they didn't calm down first. If that's ever happened to them

Progress!

I have finally published 2019's Year of Instants. Huzzah.

You can buy it here for the low, low price of absolutely nothing. W00t!

I notice my "sales" of all my free stuff have already spiked. Thanks all'a y'all.

So today, I'm going off about the government's committee nonsense in regards to Autism and what Autistes like me (a) are like, (b) actually need, (c) definitely want to exist in this world.

Like, for serious, I could go on for DAYS about autism
