Cold and overcast today, but nowhere as cold as it should be. And I say that as someone who fiercely hates winter. Currently, it's 40˚F, with the windchill at 36˚F.

Another excellent writing day on "Tupelo" yesterday, and I did 1,541 words, bringing the story past to 10k-word mark. According to the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America, "Tupelo" is a novelette. Were it to pass 17,500 words, it would be a novella (this is not likely to happen). I believe there are probably three writings days left on the story and that it will likely come in around 14k words, making it the longest Dancy story, but still not, at least by SFFWA standards, a full-on novella.

After the writing, I worked on the John Singer Sargent jigsaw puzzle we've been doing, Lady Agnew of Lochnaw (1892). Spooky made her yummy meatloaf for dinner. I leveled Nellis Rose Snow to Level 80 in GW2, which is as high as it goes. I created him of the 26th of December, so that's eighty levels in less than a month. Spooky got her Norn guardian, Alfhild Hrafen to eighty. Alfhild and Nellis have the same birthday. Later, I had RP with stsisyphus, and that went very, very well.

And that was yesterday. And I have a photo today.

Last night, I posted this to Facebook: NASA, the NPS, and the EPA have now all established "rogue" Twitter accounts. I'm hearing rumors that NOAA may. This is what happens when you try to stop the signal, Mr. Trump.

Resistance, Peace, Compassion,
