A few clouds today, but it's not so cold. Currently, it's 42˚F, with the windchill at 34˚F.

I think this will be short.

Yesterday was a slower sort of writing day, and I only managed 727 words. I got hung up on description, in a scene where I'm trying to describe a distinctly alien sex act, involving an ovipositor. And the whole story is being told in some futuristic gangster argot, so there are the usual difficulties of description compounded by the difficulty of conveying the images via a first-person narrative spoken in a fictional dialect.

Please have a look at the current eBay auctions. We're in one of those stretches that fall "between checks," and this one may go on for quite some time. So, every little bit helps. Thank you.

Later Taters,
Aunt Beast

Watched The Expanse. Excellent. At first I wasn't sure if it was going to be my thing, after first episode, but by episode 3 I was on board, and episode 4 completely sold me.

Somebody had reviewed the show as being Game of Thrones mixed with Babylon 5, which doesn't seem accurate to me at all. Sometimes I think reviewers enthusiasm leads them to offer up descriptions using whatever other shows they happen to like.
