Just a couple of things I want to comment on real quick:
1) I added yet another WordPress module to my site today. Two of them, in fact. The first is the “official website”:http://100voicesinthenight.com for the 100 Voices in the Night Project. There will be brief bios for all the contributing authors as well as samples of each one’s work. There will likely also be news updates as we get the project off the ground, so check back there often to see what’s happening with this unique flash fiction anthology.
The second WP module is a fiction archive called “Musa in the Thicket”:http://open-dialogue.com/musa. The title found its origins in the Stephen King article “I mentioned”:http://open-dialogue.com/blog/2006/10/03/on-the-writing-life/ a couple of days ago. I’ve been hosting for a while now an archive of fantasy fiction written by a friend of mine. The story arc revolves around the “Warlord CCG”:http://www.warlordccg.com as set in the Anything forum of the “Temple of Lore”:http://www.temple-of-lore.com fan site. There is also some ToL-related fiction that I’ve written, called _Fury_, and a rather large cooperative story arc written by a number of ToLers. I’ve also archive the first chapter of a Dark Tower/Halo 2-based story arc that I’m writing that features a number of the “TTL Gunslingers”:http://tiedtheleader.com clan members. I’m not really sure what else will find its way to this archive tower, so feel free to check it out and wander around a bit.
2) I spent the evening tonight installing a couple of floodlights on our small barn. With the shorter days and the coming winter, the extra illumination out there will be very, very useful. The wiring is archaic – the barn still uses a small fuse box. I managed to blow the fuses only once and shocked myself only twice. Turns out the light switch going to the wire I was working with broken – in the ‘on’ position. Live and learn. One of these days, I really need to get my hands on a wire tester.
Thank you. That is all.
