In 2020 I built an owlbear puppet and its one of my favourite things I’ve made.
Chapter three of Wonderbook by Jeff Vandermeer is about beginnings and endings, with some illustrated pages sharing notable first and last lines. It made me think of the possibilities of using it as a text in a class and what exercises you could implement beyond those included in the book itself. What are the first and last lines of books and stories I love?
I’m reluctant to read writing process books, but my mentor from the SFWA recommended Wonderbook by Jeff Vandermeer, a book I 100% would not have picked up and am now excited to own.
An arbour on fire wasn’t going to enough for the final cover for The Audacity Gambit, but painting some flowers worked better than expected.
One of the more truly exciting things for me in any project is the packaging and design aspect. As a present to myself, I’m spending some on the cover.
