I have a story picked out to read, if I end up doing a reading -- they don't seem to have the reading schedules posted in advance this year, so I don't know one way or another whether the people scheduling them even got my e-mail, much less decided to act on it. This is suboptimal, but on the other hand it's replaced reading jitters with a vague unsettled feeling. Also this way if I don't end up reading, porphyrin doesn't get to kill me because it won't be my fault. But if you're going to be at Minicon, can you please look and see if I'm doing a reading, and if I am and you're not doing something different then, come? I'd appreciate it. I'd give you firmer parameters if I had them. I promise.
I am trying to decide what Hel's voice sounds like. I am equally convinced of two mutually exclusive options. Also I don't know which goddess's head is best to haul around. Made-up goddesses, so it's more along the lines of "sea goddess vs. huntress vs. patron of cheese" than "I'd rather have Athena's head than Demeter's any day/not me, I expect Demeter would at least know how to shut up." This will take some pondering. I can ponder while brushing my teeth, though, so at least there's that.
You know when little kids (and puppies) are really tired, and they won't stop wandering around, and you can't tell why not, because really they would be happier if they'd just lie down and go to sleep already? Umm. Yah. That.
