She saw on TV that ghosts made things cold, and she’d always had chilly feet at night.

So she found a stone with a hole through the middle and she waited under the covers until the chill made her toes curl.

Gently, she sat up, closing one eye and holding the stone up to the other.

Shimmering and thin as a beam of moonlight, the cat stretched and resettled on her feet.

She smiled and went back to bed, careful not to kick.

She’d always wanted a cat.

β€˜It’s just a pigeon,’ said the girl. β€˜Let it die.’

The boy lifted it with gentle hands. It was too weak to struggle. He could feel its heartbeat against his fingertips. β€˜It just needs help, that’s all.’

He nursed it day and night. Warmed it by a lamp, cleaned its wounds. Fed it from his hand. Every day it grew stronger. And larger.

After a week, it was the size of a cat. A month, a dog. It gazed at him with adoring eyes. And one day, it would carry him into the sky.

This game is such a delight. The world has really opened up with so much to see and do.

And there are SO MANY cats to paint!

Here are some paintings I made this stream.

And thanks so very much to everyone who came along. I loved all the conversation. πŸ’™

Motivating myself today with 'if you write X words you can read for 30 minutes'

It is extremely effective. I really REALLY want to read more! XD

I'm streaming Eastshade in about an hour at 2pm GMT!

Come join me as I become a painter exploring a beautiful fantasy world full of animal people and continue my mission to paint every cat I find.

I'd love the company.

It arrived!

I'm probably not going to get to play it until this evening, but I'm still so excited!

I am reading the latest Old Kingdom book, Terciel and Elinor, and it's actually wonderful. I missed this world so much and I have so many thoughts and just ahhh!

It feels like reading Sabriel or Lirael again for the first time.

When he was sure no one was looking, the prince pulled out a thick slice of bread, wrapped in a silk napkin.

He took a bite before slowly tearing the rest into fine crumbs. Then he softly sang a small song, one his mother had taught him, and the rats and mice of the palace converged. He laughed and listened to their gossip until the sun began to sink.

He sighed, dusting off his breeches.

"Until next time, my little friends," he promised.

Good morning folk and friends from far and near!

Today I wish you something that sparks your interest ✨

There was once a witch who was so full of tears that when she burst she cried for months.

Her crows carried away the biggest droplets, tossing them into seas where they became pearls, onto fields where they became grain, and into ravines where they became gems and ores. Any that fell upon mountains became waterfalls. What splashed at her feet became healing moss.

Finally, they dried her face with soft feathers, coaxing out her sunny smile.

Made some good progress on publishing things this morning (update this afternoon!) but now it's back to Finish the Damn Book Week.

I am absolutely tearing through it but I am beginning to fear that I will not Finish the Damn Book this week!

Good morning folk and friends from far and near!

Today I wish you something that makes you feel appreciated ✨

I had a wonderful time today! Got a lovely collection of games recommendations from chat and also got to explore the world as a cat!

I was briefly shaken down and chased by bandits, but I think I came out stronger for the experience.

Thanks so much to everyone who came. πŸ’™

I'm looking for a table top RPG group to join. Simplest for me would be play by post otherwise we'd need to accommodate European timezones.

Preferably some simple system: Quest or Blades in the Dark or something similar. Could be Fall of Magic even.

Boosts appreciated.

I could probably try gming if needed tho this is not my first preference.
