Gallifrey Tweets No More

I have decided to stop the aggregate Tweets posts to LJ. It turns out I almost never go back to look at them, and it was getting kind of discouraging to look at my LJ and see "My Tweets, My Tweets, My Tweets" all the time. I think it was producing more noise than signal.

I do miss the days of a vibrant LJ community, tho. Where have all the comments gone? Say what you want about life in 140 characters, there is at least a lot of conversation going on over there!

I'll try to make a point of putting more cool stuff here tho. :)

EDIT: Hmm. Maybe I'm being too hasty here. You folks tell me, yes Tweets, or no? I'd like to know what people think. :)

New Novel Started, Plus LJ Twitter Resolution

Well, more people seem to like the Tweets than dislike, so I'll turn them back on. I wish the connection LJ uses had the option to put the whole post behind a LJ-cut instead of arbitrarily tossing one in after 20 Tweets or so... but it doesn't. Sorry about that! I'll try to put more actual-content posts on LJ to fill in the gaps.

Meanwhile, I started the first draft of my next novel today! :) Progress so far: 1,112 of ~90k. This one started as a comic (remember the Turnabout?), which then morphed into another comic, but the more I thought about it, the better it seemed to work as a novel. This one should clock in on the higher side of the ~90k wordcount, as it's a pretty epic and sprawly story by my usual standards. I'm hoping FurPlanet will be interested in carrying it. :)

In other news, I've almost completely got my "what I want my workspace to be like" worked out-- unfortunately, it entails another drafting table exactly like the one I'm currently using! Which costs ~$450 or so. So I'm gonna have to open up commissions again, it seems! I expect to be doing that later this week, probably as soon as FurAffinity gets back out of "read-only" mode (since many of my would-be commissioners seem to prefer communicating via FA notes).

Anyway, time to feed the kitties! Catcha later, LJ. :)
