Rap Once For Yes
I didn't think anything would really happen when Joey suggested we have a seance. I mean, who hasn't seen that kind of thing in the movies? It's all old ladies rapping on tables and weird lights in crystal balls. So when Joey suggested we go to the local cemetery on Halloween and try to talk to the dead, I played along. I figured it was just an opportunity for the two of us to spook the others with our special abilities. "I think it sounds fun," I said. "We can wear our costumes and bring candy and stuff. And if anyone else comes lurking in the cemetery, we'll scare the pants off of them." What the rest of the group didn't know is that Joe

Useless - a sci fi flash fiction
I watched the kid rummage around in the old scraps, chuckling a little as he cursed at his skinned knuckles. I jerked my foot off the floor (not as easy as it used to be) as a battery core rolled through the space where my toes had just been. "How do you find anything in here, Pops?" he said. "I knew where it all was, more or less." "Knew?" "Well, you been movin' it around for 3 days, so there's no telling how long it'll take me to learn the new lay of the land, now." The kid was too easy, and I stifled a smile at the guilty look that came over him at the implied difficulty for poor old Pops. "What are you looking for, anyway, Cal?"

A worthy Kickstarter, the Miira View Frame
This is a pretty cool tool for checking perspective, foreshortening, proportions, or anything else affecting the shape and composition of your paintings. They're almost to their goal and have less than 12 hours left. I wish I'd learned about it sooner. Check it out, and think about giving them a few bucks. The Miira View Frame.

Workshopping my novel first draft
So, I'm posting my first draft of my novel at WritersCafe. It's slow going - I have about 3 times as much written as posted. However, if you'd like to check it out and give me some feedback (here or at WC) I'd appreciate it. You can find the posted chapters here. As this is the first draft, I'm not particularly concerned with punctuation or spelling errors. I'm far more interested in your thoughts on pacing, story progression, characters, etc. I have already noticed that my first few chapters had an excessive amount of passive voice. That will definitely be getting fixed.

Spent some time with Rembrandt this week
My family and I went to this exhibition of Rembrandt works owned in America at the Minneapolis Museum of Arts. They have some really great ones, including a pair of full size portraits. There were also a lot of imitations in the museum for comparison. Works created by Rembrandt's students and admirers were often attributed to Rembrandt by over-eager curators in the 19th century. They also had an audio tour, which included free access to the files via wifi on a mobile device. I thought that was a nice touch, and very helpful.
