Sorry for the photo spam. Figured it was about time I posted pictures of the new additions to my collection. That and a couple of "just for fun" pics, because you're never too old to play with your toys.
For those of you who are wondering, my talk on Sunday went well. I ended up typing the whole thing out longhand and reading it aloud -- I don't improvise well when it comes to public speaking, and since I know I'm a decent writer but not a good speaker I figured this was the best way to handle it. And while most of the talk is a blank spot in my memory now, people tell me I did pretty well. I guess they couldn't see from the congregation that I was shaking the whole time.
While I was waiting my turn to talk, I did have an amusing if unhelpful thought. For some reason my mind drifted to an episode of My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic,
and a line spoken by Photo Finish, one of the minor characters:
"Don't worry, there will only be hundreds of [people] out there watching your every move and silently judging you."
Not helpful, Photo Finish.
Still poking at the first chapter of Trials of the Flesh.
Figures that this fic has to be unhelpful and difficult just as it's coming out of the starting gate, so to speak. Maybe it's because I haven't written human characters in forever and am having problems adjusting to writing them. Writing for humans is significantly different from writing for robots, after all.
It also doesn't help that this fic features a large amount of OCs, and I'm having to come up with individual personalities and lives for them instead of falling back on the already-established TF characters. Ah well. I can consider this good practice for the original writing.
Will keep people updated on the fic's progress. Though it may be that it doesn't get finished until after Rabbit Hole Day. We'll see, I guess.
