Open Thread: Ripples and Ducks.



It looks like I haven't inflicted ducks upon you all since January.  Obviously that had to change.  Thus I give you two ducks and ripples that they're mostly responsible for.

If you want to talk about the new Star Wars trailer and such, it has its own thread.

Narnia: He Grabbed Her Wrist

[Narnia Content Note: Misogyny, Coercive Violence]

Narnia Recap: Polly and Digory have agreed to explore a new world at random.

The Magician's Nephew, Chapter 4: The Bell and The Hammer

When we last left off, the kids were in a hall of bodies. Let's finish off Chapter 4 real quick.

   This woman, as I said, was the last: but there were plenty of empty chairs beyond her, as if the room had been intended for a much larger collection of images.
   “I do wish we knew the story that’s behind all this,” said Digory. “Let’s go back and look at that table sort of thing in the middle of the room.”

Open Thread: Light, Mist, and Shadow


I think that's the light of the South Portland Branch Library (there's only one branch, so they're just called the main library and the branch library, no further distinction needed) pouring out into the mist over the municipal golf course.

I didn't actually go over there to check whether I was correct about the source of the light or not.

April Newsletter (2019)

April! I know I usually do newsletters on the 1st, but I really hate April Fool's Day and don't post anything on or around there if I can avoid it because I don't want people to think I'm trying to fool them. We're now a safe distance away, I think.

According to Patreon, March was a pretty solid month for us! I wanted to ask how y'all are liking the Let's Play videos and how you feel about the posting schedule. Is it okay? I don't want to spam your inboxes with too much stuff. I could just post a link to the playlist and you could check it periodically for new material if the "direct email each time" thing is too much? Let me know in the comments, okay? I know all our inboxes are full.

Fun Thing #1: Earthside. Chapter 1 is up on my Patreon! I wasn't sure if it would be; it's been written for a long time but it wasn't quite right and I got it polished to a high shine and I'm very happy. I hope you like it as much as I do.

Fun Thing #2: Vallis (Fire Mage WIP). I haven't had a chance to sit down with this one yet, but I have so many things I want to share. I've got art and that'll be coming up in posts in the nearish future, and I'd like to have more words to share.

Less Fun Thing: Day Jobs. I've had to pick up a lot of overtime at my day job just to make ends meet, which means my two "writing days" (Tuesdays and Thursdays) are basically not available anymore. I don't know if this is a "new normal" or a temporary thing, but since my back is hurting as a result I'm hoping it's a temporary thing and I can go back to creating soon. I continue to be in grateful awe at your support and patience with me. Thank you!!

Remember: It's a new month, which means new paper books for the $25 patrons and new bookmarks for the $5 patrons! If I don't have your address, send me a message on the internal system or email me at AnaMardoll at gmail dot com. I love sending ya'll things!

Thank you all so much again for being here with me and sticking with me through thick and thin. Oh! I might be officially divorced by the end of this month!
