So I started the first draft of the Darkfic. Whoooo! But that means that my oomph to come up with a real, thoughtful blog post has been diverted into First Draft Land. Plus, typing too much still makes my hands hurt.
So instead, I give you Delfi. I don’t know if the picture is finished, but this is where I’m cutting myself off. Say “Hi!” Delfi 🙂

Not much to say right now. Not been on the net much this past week. County fairs. They suck you in. 🙂 Mom was up for the weekend, so we went to watch cousins show steers, eat fair food, and then went to Medora for the weekend.
THAT is a post in itself. I love Medora 🙂
Anyways, getting back into the writing groove. Was working on some sketches of characters.
Here. Have a staring contest with Syrus.
Syrus. He’s a little grumpy.
Nothing profound that is. Nothing that applies to anything at the moment. Mainly I’ve been editing the last few chapters of my freebies and throwing them up while at the same time trying to do some worldbuilding on the Darkfic. Yeah. Fun title huh? I had to break my brain away from thinking so much about the Empire and go in and work on the Fleet instead. Because, ya know, The Fleet is where the first book takes place. But in order to really know what the Fleet is all about, I have to figure out Empire 2, the one that spawned the fleet. Does the Fleet have contact with the homeworlds? How so? What’s the grand plan?
And on and on and on.
Worst problem so far? What the heck can I do to them that makes them the Fleet, all terrible and nasty, that won’t infect Cyrus or the girls? Something that makes them more than human, can transfer over to my three, but won’t warp them beyond all recognition.
So I finally said to heck with it and decided to work on some art instead. Here. Enjoy 🙂
I did it on my tablet. Pushed it over to my comp, played in Photoshop, and then totally forgot to crop the edges.
At this point, I don’t really care 😉
