If you like NaNo or my writing and also Twitter, you may be interested to know that I am doing polls on Twitter to make decisions for my NaNo novel! I am hoping to write something silly this year to ease the burden on my poor pregnant brain, and crowdsourcing my ideas seems like a great way to keep it silly and engaging.

The first poll, about what world the novel should be set in, is up now! https://twitter.com/clarekrmiller/status/920088468491038721

Title: Queen of the Hill
World: Ursulan
Word count: 440
Rating: G
Prompt: Thimbleful Thursday: king of the hill
Notes: Here's a fun little story about Gwanwyn (Gawain), Grainne (Gaheris), and Agravain as kids. I'm thinking Gwanwyn is about eleven here.


Gwanwyn was the oldest, the biggest, and the strongest, but Agravain still tried to be the winner of all their games. This was unfortunate, because it meant she had to keep beating him, and he hated to be beaten.

But how could he win? He was three years younger than she was, still two inches shorter though he’d started to grow faster in the last year, and his arm was probably half as wide around as hers was, despite the fact that he just kept trying to wrestle her.Read more... )

I got a postcard from someone in Australia! Thank you, Australian friend--it's really pretty!

But you put your (presumably) real name, and I don't recognize it, so I think I must know you by another name online... and I can't think of anyone in Australia I've given my address to other than [personal profile] calissa, and it's not her name! MYSTERY.

ALSO (big news for anyone not friends with me on FB/Instagram): it came in the same mail delivery as maternity shirts from my mom and sister, so today was a super extra fun mail day :D
