Bleah

I need to get some more publicity. I'm about to be out on my own, in a situation where I actually will have both space and time to turn out more than one full suit a month. And I'll need to pull at least one full suit a month to keep in rent money. But I'm drawing a blank for more advertising. My google ads are both running again, and I"m sure that will bring in some income. I get the occasional nibble from the forums I'm in, and I have a good reputation on all of them, but none of them are really pulling a lot of business. Some, but not a lot. I need more exposure, and I'm trying to think where else I can go to get my name out.

Anybody here part of any good, active furry communities where a fursuit maker could have some fun conversation and let it be known that she's for hire? I won't spam 'em, I'll just be present, active, and visible.

Interesting.

I was reading an old rant of Ursula's, (great artist, amusing writer,) and she pointed out something. I've always thought that the neatest thing about being able to be an animal, after the fur (mmmmmmmm, fur) would be the enhanced senses. Better smell, better hearing, all that. She points out, however, that you'd lose almost all of your sense of touch, most of your visual sensitivity (unless you turn into a bird of prey, and then you have a brain the size of a peanut, and have other problems,) and almost all of your sense of taste. Ever wonder how a cat can stand to lick itself in certain places? The cat can barely taste it, that's how.

I'm not one of those people who longs to be animal instead of human. I want shape-shifting so I can try it out and then go back after. But this is one more thing on the list of reasons why being stuck as an actual feline, rather than the cat-girl I really am, would suck.

Blood and Fire

Those of you who have been with me since before I became a minor (very minor!) furry celebrity may recall Blood and Fire, my updated-twice-a-week webnovel. This was an answer to the fact that I simply cannot draw on a schedule. Can't do it. It becomes an evil chore instead of something I enjoy. But I can, at least most of the time, write on a schedule. Thus the web novel, updated faithfully for quite a long time before I finally ran out of steam. I decidided I wanted to do other things for a while, but the writing bug has bitten me again, and we're back!

So, I present Blood Choice, the newest additon to Blood and Fire, and other stories. They're all stories relating to vampires in some way. Most are also stories relating to felines in some way. Go, read, enjoy. Expect actual updates weekly for a few months. Whee!

Whimper

Mrf. Didn't get hungry today. Noticed just now that I'd had two slices of french toast and a glass of milk the entire day and went to make food. I need to make myself eat. I need to remember to make myself eat. Even being tiny and having a sedentary lifestyle, I still need more than 300 calories a day. *sighs*
