Silk: Online

My dearest and only younger brother is great. Though he disagrees with me as to what is a computer game he knows my tastes and therefor gave me a delightful recommendation.


I am at the moment considering using this website/app to make a bunch of graphics for my blog. Should I?


Oh, wait, I nearly forgot, you want me to tell you where to find it. It’s Here.


I will say that it is easier to use with a touch screen. But my computer has one so that doesn’t impact me much.


It’s also super easy to use. I have it always up on my internet browser and my two darling little nephews both know how to use it. They both like my computer but this is one part of it that they argue over.


What else is there to say? It’s fun. It is really easy. Best of all it takes no skill to make cool looking art. Gorgeous prints.


Check it out. It shouldn’t take long, then you can tell me how much fun it is.


I’ve used all sorts of lines to make pictures. From straight to words. Letting go at random to trying controlled curves.

Odds And Ends About Containsia

So I’m not going to torture you by posting “The Annals Of Trade“, but as I’m writing a high fantasy novel for Nano, I thought I would share some of the world building and other crazy stuff. If you want a tiny bit of background look at my Nano 20 Questions Tag.

Chapter 1 Attempt 1

A boy strode through the forest.

The Featured Image is the Containsian Alphabet. It is properly known as the batid. Pencils have two points.

“The poor can be richer than the rich if they have peace.”

“Sam” will be the name of my baby dragon for the whole of the first book. Later on he will gain three longer, more pretentious, and meaningful names.

Chapter 1 Attempt 2

Peson sat in the By eating a meal when the door opened and one of his best friend’s came in, Zimran.


Onontets are queer type of being. Their heads are in the shape of a clove of garlic and their ears are like Lecran ears. Onontets are artists. Some of them work with visual arts, some work with audible arts, some work with textile arts, and some work with growing arts. The ones that work with visual arts are called Feg Onontets, the ones that work with audible arts are called Fet Onontets, the ones that work with textile arts are called Fep Onontets, and the ones that work with growing arts are called Ba Onontets. Another type of Onontet is the Fegfep onontets.

A year varies in number of months and starts when the first peach shipment arrives in Hibroolby.

Chapter 1 Attempt 3

He stood by Sam´s side as he listened to the questioning ceremony.*

*Side Note, but this may be my favorite of the attempted beginnings.

The smallest Containsian unit of length is the Toe. The toe is the length of a big toe, about one and a half inches long.

“Rules and laws were made to ensure everyone has the best possible time, breaking them makes someone else feel bad.”

Rice and maize are the most common grains of Containsia.

Chapter 1 Attempt 4

At the bottom of a cliff sat a boy, behind him stood an old man and stag.

I thought I had another beginning of a chapter written on paper, but I can’t find it. So I’ll end this rather odd post here.

Titles Are To Important

I’m doing NaNoWriMo again this year. I plan on posting more about it on Sunday.

I’ve acquired a Ko-fi account. I’m still setting it up but I thought you should know.

I’ve posted a video to IGTV and since you can only watch it on a smart phone, I posted the video to YouTube as well. But wait, before you go over to my Instagram to watch it I must tell you something. I have two Instagram’s. The one on my blog is more for my blog, it’s about sewing and my normal life. The video is on my other account, my bookstagram. If you want to see my bookish self check out @authors.ace.

If you are wondering where the Ingalls are, they are waiting for it to be dry enough for me to remember to take them outside to go a camping trip. I may not mind camping out in the rain myself, or even taking a book out into the rain for a quick photo, but my paper dolls are super precious.
