Beastie updates

Went out to feed the cat this morning, and I saw the teeniest, tiniest, adorablest snail latched onto the edge of her food dish, undoubtedly brought out by the deluge we had last night:

That’s my thumb on the left for size comparison.

I think the kitty knows I’m trying to get closer to her. She’s been visiting and chowing down on the food I set out during the wee hours of the night when I’m unlikely to be peering out the window. Getting a little anxious; I’m running out of leftover ferret food.

In other beastie-related news, Hobkin hasn’t sicked up in over a week, which makes me very, very happy.


Writing Stuff

I’ve hit the Eugie-overwhelmed, brain-useless-now stage of my research project, so I switched from poring over theory to writing up the applied sections. Making good progress. I’ve got three out of seven sections completed–give or take a citation or two. Hoping to have a couple more squared away by the end of this weekend.

– Preliminary sketch from Dragonfly Spirit for “A Patch of Jewels in the Sky.” I know it’s not industry practice to involve the writer in the art selection or development, so I don’t expect to be consulted, but I always really appreciate it when I am. Also, *squee!* I think it’s going to turn out to be quite spectacular.
– 91-day form “no” from Polphony. Sigh.

    Wow. That snail is too cute.

    And I didn’t think snails could be cute!

      Isn’t it teeny? I had a pet snail once as part of an aquarium. It was orange and pink and glittery, and also huge, so not so much cute as beautiful. . . . Then the fish ate it, which squicked me out well and good.

  2. You may have to buy cat food????

      It looks that way. I don’t have a problem with that if we’re her main source of food, but the impoverished, starving writer angle makes me kind of anxious to know whether she belongs to someone who’s already feeding her or not.

  3. Oooooh, what a cute snail. I love snails.

    I’m glad Hobkin is feeling better now.

    That is a really teensy snail. cute! My sister also has a snail she found on the front walk. He is currently living in a strawberry box, and has been named Eduardo.

    Many cats also love cheese.

  6. Bummer on the Polyphony reject. I’m still waiting on mine, but expect it soon.
