StarReader Universe Symbol

 
Yesterday I was talking to a friend about commissioning a new necklace using the StarReader Universe symbol.

Since I was at a restaurant, I didn't have access to my files in order to show her.

You want to see your story as short...

Some Rasa for you

She's brash, highly technical, often snide, and very, very sure of herself. She's also of Punjabi decent.One of the first challenges Pazi posed to me when working on the story was the race of Rasa and her twin brother Rama. I inherited the names from a friend's project, and -- like most caucazoid authors -- completely failed to consider race at...

She may have a point.

Please? trice: Write: "Tess AshFeather sat at her writing desk and did not know what to do ..." tess: You can't be serious. ^_^;; trice: Sure I can. tess: I'm doubt that'd accomplish much. trice: Main thing is, write anything? Write some trash. trice: Take up a little project that doesn't mean anything trice: Or give up writing until you change your mind about giving up writing. tess: Given my schedule...
