08:04 am - Dreamwidth invite codes!

All gone! If you requested a code and haven't received the invite yet, let me know.

I've got five four three two one Dreamwidth invite codes to send out, first come, first serve. If you want one, comment here with your email address. Comments screened for privacy.

As they're in the open beta stage right now and are probably getting hammered, you may not be able to import your LJ for a few days. :D

01:58 pm - Ah, grammar

In an oasis in the midst of a wasteland, someone who suffers stoically encounters poison as the story begins. As the narrative unfolds, the protagonist meets a woman who does the unexpected with prominent hipbones, and they wind up in a building with a high twisting stair with the twitch of an eye.

From the sword & sorcery variant of the Cool Bits Generator.

Also:blamerachel for people thatrachelmanija has talked into writing (or thinking about writing) a story to submit to Sword & Sorceress 24. Info in comm profile and in the first post.

ETA: It's not a major recode, just the basic Cool Bits generator with obviously non-S&S terms stripped out and a few more added in.

"The earth screams for more blood when you bury someone inside [it]."

--Went home a little early, am watching an episode of Into the Unknown with Josh Bernstein*. It's a tribe in ... New Guinea, maybe? (I watched the beginning a few days ago and forgot) that used to mummify their dead and place them on a hilltop overlooking the village, and the quote above is how a woman explains their revulsion at being buried.

* Tends to host archaeology and history-oriented shows. I haven't looked him up so I can't speak to any of his qualifications except for looking damn good in a fedora at an archaeological site, which is probably very high on his resume.

My mom just told me that our cousins* have three horses in the Derby this year! None of them terribly high-ranked, but hey. :)

* The sort you see maybe once every decade or so. XD
