That beautiful moment when you're sharing an abandoned story idea with someone and they tell you, quite sincerely, "You should definitely fit that in! It sounds like it would have been really good!"
I Live For The Applause by Anthro7
I Live For The Applause
I live for the applause applause applause
I live for the applause-plause
Life for the applause-plause
Live for the...
Way that ya cheer and scream for me
The applause applause applause


Cause she totally does. She doesn't need the money. Stormer writes the music, so I doubt Phyllis has a deep, inner yearning to create musical wonders. It's totally about the fame. She's all about the bas- ER I MEAN, applause. Yeah, the applause plause. Yup.

Scarlet Skye - The Dream Star Quest Board Game by Anthro7
Scarlet Skye - The Dream Star Quest Board Game
In final drafting mode. It's had several play tests and all that remains is to adjust the written rules file, remake some of the ships that were damaged from wear in testing, and design a box.

So life has been kinda eh recently. Or shitty. Depends on if the cup is half empty or half full.

My parents are temporarily moved in with me, which means a house full of tension. We're managing, but it's... rough.

My dad had a heart attack and died twice. They brought him back, though. Bad valve, bad kidney, mass on liver, et al. We're working on correcting all this. He had to recover X-amount of time from the heart attack first, and now today he just went in to have the valve replaced. He'll be in for a bit, to make sure it functions fine. Then he's home for a bit again. No work. And then he'll go back in to have the kidney looked at and taken care of. Sigh. It's all quite tiring. I hope he comes out of all of it well.

I hate my mother's one cat. She has caused me much pain and is a nasty little beast. I can't cut paper or wash dishes without being in pain because my hands are so torn up. (The husband wants to throw the cat out the window, and my one son thinks that would be quite humorous.) Alas, not humane.

I had a book and art fair last weekend. Sold two books. Met some awesome people. Renewed my interest in writing. Was invited to a local writers guild by a dude in a TARDIS shirt. Met an old guy (I mean, OLD) who cosplays as anime characters and ponies, who went as Rainbow Dash to the last bronycon, and dressed as Ponyo's dad for several anime conventions. (Said he tried the Liam Neeson voice, too! Heheh.)

Created and playtested a Stories of the Scarlet Skye board game, which was quite a highlight. My brothers enjoy it. Everyone at the art and book fair seemed to think it was cool, and several of the clever people asked if I'd ever heard of Pirates of the Spanish Main. (Aren't they clever? I didn't even know people still played that game.) Anyway, I shall have photos of this game up soon, once I remake some of the ships that were damaged in the process of attending an event and going through several playtests.

My son starts ESY soon, so there's that. One day a week I shall have to wake up early, despite the summer schedule. Horror.

Next week I have to lead a What's In The Bible? vacation bible school, because it looks like my MC/Host and the registration person are both backing out. (It's for kids and adults, so this should be interesting...)

My BABY brother graduated and got a job. Wow. I am just... wow. So getting him to and from work is now part of a semi-regular routine. Not too hard, since that whole end of the family is currently living with me, but it's still a new adjustment.

I used to spend two or three hours on my computer after my boys went to bed, writing, drawing, reading, editing, what have you... But now my living area is occupied by three or four foreign bodies, so... My relaxation sanctuary has been desecrated. I keep thinking, "It's only temporary. Deal with it." But it does take a toll... I would very much like a set-aside time to just chill, without anyone around to bother me, but it doesn't look like that's happening any time soon.

Oh, yeah, and tomorrow's my birthday. The husband got me one of the two things I asked for - a stuffed Sunset Shimmer. And it's a good quality one, too! Soft, sculpted hair... it's beautiful! The other thing was a book called Me, Myself and Bob, by Phil Vischer, but as no one can find it in store and my family doesn't believe in ordering things, it looks like I'm on my own for that one. Alas. Maybe for Christmas.

Jem Con cometh at the end of August, so I shall have to kick out some new Jem art soon. Joy. I'd rather be writing or game-designing, but what have you. And if I'm to believe what I've heard from this year's JemCon host, there's no budget for advertising. So if I want people to come, to perhaps buy my stuff, I've got to buy poster material myself, and staples for my staple gun, design my own black-and-white JemCon poster, and put them wherever I think people who are interested might go. Colleges I guess? But I should think Jem fans would be my age and older, so maybe colleges are hitting kids that are too young? Maybe near malls? I dunno... There's a couple of tourist areas near me that I can throw some up near, like oh phone polls and such. Yay staple guns.

Sometime in July, there's supposed to be a mini-convention at a local library for writers, but I'm afraid I don't know much about it yet. So while I was invited to attend (so there'd be more scifi/fantasy representation), I'm afraid I'm not sure what all it will involve. (I have to say, though, if that last book and art fair was any indication, people don't know how to make displays to cover the highlights of their written works. For being such creative writers, we all could use some creative input on promotional material. I thank my web site and my brothers for material to put on MY display, along with that playtest game, because they seemed to be what pulled people to my table.

Tired sigh... I think that about covers everything. I hope YOU'RE all well. I never thought I'd be one of those deviants making a general update journal. I never figured there would be a need. But then I realized I was absent from running a contest/activity thing and ought to give some account for myself. So, here's the account. Now you know.

(Did I mention my first book is for sale? Just sayin'... www.createspace.com/5306031 or the actual website, www.scarletskye.com Planning on releasing the second book soon, unless my Divas book comes out first. It's still being beta-read for edits.)

NiGHTS 3 - Twilight Sleep by Anthro7
NiGHTS 3 - Twilight Sleep
Just off the border of your waking mind, there lies another time... where darkness and light are one. And as you travel the halls of sanity, you feel so glad to be... unable to go beyond. I have a message, from another time.

Some of you may know that "twilight sleep" is when you're pretty out of it, but still slightly aware of what's going on around your waking self. For this level, each bubble in the surreal environment releases a dark and negative mass of blackness, between two feet and five feet big, depending on the bubble size. Each one will call up a negative thought from the particular dreamer's bad experience, and cause a several-second time delay while the dreamer regains their composure. One would think "Just simply avoid the bubbles", right? Well, gravity is weird here. The substance that appears to be water is swirling like a whirlpool, and it causes everything in the air above it to swirl as well. It also draws you toward the center, sort of like a black hole. So sometimes, you're so busy fighting the invisible current that you won't be able to avoid the nasty bubbles. If the black hole manages to suck you in, it will flip the setting, and invert all color until it flips you again. The level will also have to be played upside down. (Beating the level will  result in correcting the color and orientation if you aren't wise enough to just get sucked into the hole again to reverse things.) Each time the player is sucked into the black hole, several seconds are wasted while NiGHTS reorients itself. Additional problems in this level include falling stars, also being sucked into the hole. They're only small chunks of crystal, but if they hit you you'll lose some blue chips and some time. If one is brave enough to fly close to the surface of the water, you might notice NiGHTS reflection is in inverse colors. Be forewarned. If you interact with the reflection, it will become a doppleganger, alive and well as a minion on your side of the water, and plenty willing to paraloop you as though you were its enemy. (Selph anyone?)
