NaBloPoMo November 2016


I've been looking at my social media presence as a whole over the past few...um, years?...and realizing that I've become an echo chamber. Sharing links on Facebook, retweets, likes and reblogs on Tumblr - but original content has been thin on the ground. Hell, I didn't even manage to blog about a trip halfway around the world in a timely fashion.

So I'm making a commitment to post original content every day for the entire month of November. [personal profile] gridlore is doing Nanowrimo, so we can be partners in this insanity.

And what will I post? That's at least partly up to you. Taking a cue from [livejournal.com profile] fragbert, I'm going to put a list behind the cut tag, and will take suggestions from the audience. You can give me a prompt with or without a specific date, and I'll update the list as they come in. If I don't have a prompt for a particular day, I'll check the latest Writing Lab prompts, or give you bullet points about my day, or something.

  1. NaBloPoMo intro Done.
  2. ([personal profile] gritsinmisery) Places you would visit on the North American continent (other than Black Rock) if money and health were no objects. Done.
  3. ([personal profile] lilalanor) Maybe your favourite photos you took in Turkey and why? (I am always here for people explaining beloved travel photos I don't know) Done.
  4. ([livejournal.com profile] bkwrrm_tx) If money weren't an issue, what would you like to be doing for a living? Done.
  5. ([personal profile] miintikwa) What do you want to be when you grow up?
  6. ([livejournal.com profile] silkensteel Pull three tarot cards at random. Rather than their being "past, present, future" have them be "beginning, middle, end." Pull a fourth, what facet of your life does it remind you of? Apply the cards to the beginning, middle and end of that facet - what do you see? Done.













  7. Dickens Fair 2016 w/[personal profile] murphymom Done.











For those of you coming to visit from the Official Blogroll, welcome! To crib from my intro post for my aborted attempt at LJ Idol in 2013: I'm K`shandra (not legally, but I'll answer to it in public at least as readily as I do my birth name). Life long San Francisco Bay Area resident, married since 1991 to the aforementioned [personal profile] gridlore, also a Bay Area native. I'm morbidly obese and middle aged; I trend toward the introverted side of ambiversion, and self identify as a recovering depressive (directly analogous, IMO&E, to being a recovering alcoholic). My passions are science fiction conventions and Burning Man, both attending and volunteering; my current Default World boss is someone I work with in the desert. I have too many stuffed animals and not enough bookshelves, too many half-finished craft projects and not enough hours in the day to finish them.

Hi.

You know me, I'm always up for making a list!

What has happened to you that could only have happened to you b/c you live in the Bay Area?

Your best year at Burning Man.

Tales from the Worksite.

Bay Area Tourists: the only reason this town gets kept up, or PITA? (For Tourists substitute Professional Sports Teams if you prefer.)

Volunteer v. Professional Cons: discuss.

New movies you are looking forward to seeing / OMG these movies will be train wrecks.

Your favorite $HOLIDAY$ television shows / movies.

If someone came along and said, I will build you display cases & bookshelves to your spec, no charge, dream away -- what would they look like?

Places you would visit on the North American continent (other than Black Rock) if money and health were no objects.

Hi! I've been back here a while and it's great to see word from you. A couple thoughts:

  • How anti-feminists touch your life and how you feel about it

  • Your favorite board or card game or RPG

  • coping strategies regarding food issues (I have a few similar ones). I totally get it if that's not a comfy thing

Welcome to the insanity!

Suggestions for the box: What medical issue would you cure if you could magically do so?

The pet peeve that makes you angriest.

Who's your role model?/Whose life would you live if you had to live as someone else?

What do you want to be when you grow up?
