Waiting in the Laugh Motel...

I was up a wee bit too late last night (but thank you Lorne and Larissa), and then there were the nightmares, so I'm presently somewhat dazed and disoriented. I'm awake, I'm just mostly elsewhere.

Yesterday, I did 1,070 words on "Pickman's Other Model." The writing started out slowly, but then built up some momentum. A much better day of it than I had on Wednesday. If it'll just all hold together, in terms of the story's historical authenticity, I think I'm going to like this one.

I want to say again how happy I am with the Subterranean Press edition of Tales of Pain and Wonder. My thanks to everyone who has ordered a copy thus far.

After about half a dozen people expressed an interest in participating in the Second Life "Sirenia Players," I went ahead and established the group yesterday evening. At this point, four people have been invited in, three have accepted. More invitations will go out this evening. We'll probably have an informal get-together in a few weeks, to talk through the basics, lay some ground rules, and so forth. If you're interested, I need your SL username, otherwise I can't find you to send you an invitation, and the group is invite-only.

A good walk yesterday, down Sinclair Avenue to talk to Daisy Dog and the dinosaur. The Narcissus and camellias are blooming. I'm going to miss these Southern springs, but I figure it'll be more than fair, the trade off. Speaking strictly in terms of climate, it's a bloody shame the great industrial (and cultural) centers of this country were not founded in the southeast, instead of the northeast. Oh, fickle fucking happenstance. Anyway, after dinner, another two episodes of Angel. I enjoyed "Slouching Towards Bethlehem," but "Supersymmetry" was just a little too something.

And really, I think that's all for now. Time to dance with the platypus in the pale moonlight (of..um..day).

If ever there were an enticement to get onto SL. If ever there were a time when I had less time than I do now for RP.

Sigh.

If it helps, we're only talking maybe two evenings a month.

In the short term, it's unlikely, but I will definitely keep my eyes open in the long term, if this continues and needs new people.

Well, damn. If you get in, I'll have to as well. If only for the opportunity to RP with ya & carry through on all that mess we talk about on team_disaster. 'Cause I ain't likely to move above the Mason-Dixon.

If you get in, I'll have to as well.

For what it's worth, based on some of the things you've written on LJ (you're commentary on "A Season of Broken Dolls," for example), you're one of the people I'd love to have. No pressure, though.

Aw, you're makin' me blush, Ms. K.
Perhaps I will send you an email to get some more specifics about the matter. I'm not currently on SL; I'd like to see what the participation specifications are before I even make sure that my technical specs are up to it.

Just curious, as I haven't spent any time in SL in quite a long time, is there a voice chat client built into the game to help with RP sessions like this? Or is it all mostly type based still? I'm sure that there are external services that people can use, like Ventrillo and such, just curious if SL implemented an in-game one as of yet.

Several months ago, voice-chat was activated in SL. However, I don't do voice. Thee reasons. 1) As is widely known, I dislike my voice. 2.) Voice chat would not generate transcripts, which is rather the whole point of this. 3) Voice chat c

In fact, voice in banned at both my Abney Park Laboratory and the Palaeozoic Museum. So, while it is an option, it's not one we'll be using.

Ah, thanks for the info. I was curious if they had ever got it working. I can totally, totally, understand why you wouldn't want it used during a heavy RP session, given that the logging is important -- as you stated.

Thanks again for the SL info.
