Ahh! Had lots of fun in Feral today getting thrashed in racing by a fox in a beach hat and a tiny blue cat. πŸ˜‚

Thanks so much to everyone who played and everyone who came along to watch! πŸ’™

I'm streaming Feral on Twitch in about an hour at 2pm BST!

Come along for cute creature adventures, including a player-run race across the fantasy landscape!

You're welcome to join in as well if you have the game.

Either way, I'd love the company. πŸ’™

Soul Scribes Fishing Friday! 

Tally so far:

🐑 🐑 🐑 🐠

I wanted at least one more fish before lunch but I missed far too many while distracted. XD

But! I've written LOADS. And it's better than last week, so. I'll be okay if that's all I manage today.

Anyway, Merlin is begging so it's time for a break!

Soul Scribes Fishing Friday! 

I am missing so many fish!

Why is my attention always so scattered! I'm getting plenty of writing done, just never when there's any fish! XD

Today I'm going to be having a fishing competition in the writing gamification site, ! 🎣

The site is in closed private alpha, so unfortunately isn't joinable yet.

The game involves writing at your own pace until a random fish gets hooked and you write fast to reel them in.

I'm competing against friends. :)

Scoring is as follows:

🐟 Minnows: 1 Point
🐑 Trout: 2 Points
🐠 Carp: 3 Points
🦈 Bass: 4 Points
🐬 Pike: 5 Points

Let the fishing ... begin!

(For those asking: 'What's Feral?'

Feral is a teeny tiny creature MMO that I think is well-described as 'Animal Crossing but a fantasy MMO'.

You can find out more about it at fer.al )

Today is Feral day! We're going to have some casual races on my stream this afternoon.

Anyone who has the game is welcome to join in, and of course folk are welcome to watch the stream.

I think it'll be silly and relaxed and I'm really looking forward to it. ^_^

Good morning folk and friends from far and near!

Today I wish you a change for the better ✨

Anyway! That's it! That's my self-promo for a while.

I'd be delighted if you buy or borrow any of these. Making a living as a writer is hard, but more than anything I want my books to be read and my games to be played!

Thanks for bearing with me. Self-promo mode: deactivated.

I also wrote a TTRPG! KIN has a very flexible system that encourages innovation and homebrew. And it comes with a pre-made short adventure, too!

It's the same game played by the protagonists of my novel NON-PLAYER CHARACTER, but both the novel and the TTRPG stand alone.

Please do check it out!

Something I love about cats is how delighted they are for our company.

They purr and grow excited when you sit next to them, or get up to sit even closer to you.

They chirp and smile and bob when you walk into a room, or roll cutely to express how safe and comfy they feel.

And nobody has ever read aloud in a house without the resident cat slinking in to listen.

They're just so gentle and sweet and I love them.

I can't wait to hatch, thought the dragon. I wonder what my elf will be like? I hope they are fun!

But when they nosed their way out of the shell, they found their nest deserted. Nothing but swamp in every direction. No elves with great destinies in sight.

For a while they cried, keening their sorrow at the moonlit sky.

Then a swamp cat scruffed them and deposited them into a swarm of kittens.

They quickly decided cats were much more fun than elves and destiny!

Good morning folk and friends from far and near!

Today I wish you reassurance ✨

Another amazing journey into Fallen London. Today we chased so many cats, and some of them even told us their secrets!

Thanks so much to everyone who came. It was such a lively chat and I had a great time. πŸ’™
