Or, a place for jennyK to rant

Hello Wednesday! The next mother of Crow chapter draft is up, The choices of butterflies
In other news, I had a good rant going but my machine decided it wasn’t having it. So into the void it went. I sincerely hope the Void Goblins will enjoy what I wrote because I won’t try to recreate it.
I’ll be back.

Had an opportunity to sleep in. Didn’t happen. As things go, 5AM wakes me and I’m awake. Craving coffee. Wishing I could sleep longer won’t make it so. Sigh. So I tweaked the front page. Now I’m wondering why allowing comments on pages doesn’t work. Annoying. The rest of my to do list will have to wait while I enter the rabbit hole of WordPress trouble shooting.
I shall return later with Mother of Crow Chapter 1. 😀

Finally Friday. That’s what I’m supposed to say, right? Heh, we’ll just leave it at that. So my favourite plugin failed me and I had to do a workaround on the front page. A hack I don’t really like. but it will do for now. So I got started with publishing my novel in progress. The prologue is now available. I’m in a bit of a rush so you’ll have to find it yourself. 😀 And I got posting on Facebook. Ugh. If you know me, you know I am not a fan of that place. but it has its uses I suppose. Like fanpages and… Um, fanpages. I am seriously sore after running a hand sander for far too long this past week. My arms even complain about me typing this.
Currently all I want is:
A beer, a nice hot meal, a pillow and a bunch of blankets. I really don’t like winter.
Catch ya later.

So after considering my first blog post in a while, I have decided to rewrite it. I needed to write it I think. But a rewrite to something not quite as personal would serve it better. And the reader too I’m sure. So there you go. : Postponed for a little while.
In other news, I’m currently putting words and melody to this here tune:
When that becomes hard on the brain, I try to find time to finalize vocals and mix this song here:
And when my ears have taken enough of a beating, I cram as much contracted braille into my head as I can, and when that fails to fill my entire day, I have pine boards to san, floors to clean, paperwork to scan into readable digital text, and should I not do laundry? Nah, I’ll make sure I have something left to do for the time between 8:30 and 11 P.M.
And I still have to set up a page for this new “news” section of mine. A new page? Uh, we’ll see.
Catch ya later.

So I spent most of this morning tweaking a plugin to display a list of all posts and pages that has been modified recently. Why? Well, I thought it would be a good idea. 😀 And I think it is. I’m cooking up a scheme for the front page where this daily or semi daily status report will show only a couple of days of my ramble, with a “read more” link at the end. Just haven’t gotten around to that yet. This stupid list, which you now can see further down on this page was more important. Between messing with plugins and frying my brain with short-code parameters and running a sander across a pine bannister under construction, I haven’t had much time for thinking about much of anything. And that’s kinda nice. I’ll be back. Got a blog to publish after all. 😀

As I continue messing with the House of Imp front page, the back part of my mind plans for a guided tour of this place. With Imp as a not so helpful helper. It’s just for fun really. But, what the hell. So that’s coming in the next few weeks. At the same time I want to start publishing the new mother of Crow novel drafts here. It’s a work in progress and it is slow. But for you, dear random visitor, I’ll share what I have.
Icarus machine Has an album to finalize and much of that will happen in December when work slows down for a bit for the man in charge of that. Sriracha The legendary a.k.a Bill will be on it like Canuck in a pot-shop. (Yeah, that shit is legal here now so the simile is applicable if rather awful. Sorry about that.)
Deep thought of the day:
“Uh. Laundry doesn’t fold itself? WTF?”
Hated phrase of the week:
“This may be a sentence fragment.”

Surfacing… Starting with a blog post, updating the front-page, then I will try to figure out what all that Gutenberg bullshit is all about. If you’re not into WordPress, then don’t worry about it. It’s the crap behind the stuff that you see, what makes it tick, what makes it look the way it does — all that text, all those pictures, all that other stuff we usually just skim and forget. Again, don’t worry about it. Chances are I won’t bother either.
But hey, I’m alive. I miss the podcasting. I want to write blogs again. I made this place but I neglect it. Maybe that’s coming to an end. Who knows. But for now, let me just start with a simple blog titled “The JennyK comfort zone trap – How I got there and why I can’t seem to leave” To be published Wednesday, that will tell it all. Well, most of it. All of it relevant, none of it very useful.
Be good to each other. This world needs nice. Talk to you soon.
