One small highlight of Tbilisi so far was this bird, which is a laughing dove - they're very common across the Middle East and into India, but Georgia is right at the northwest end of their range so this is the first time I've ever seen one. Besides the fact that laughing dove is a great name, they're quite dainty and have lovely rose colouration on the head. This one was pigeon-ing around the cobbled streets near the old cathedral :)

I think about 60% of the toots I start writing never get posted. Mostly the ones commenting on anything political-theoretical disappear quickly because I just don't have energy to be snarked at, much less told that I eat babies and am evil, and I 100% can't tell who will react like that around here :/

At a really good summer school in Tbilisi on Georgian manuscripts. My wrist problem is flared up so I can't reasonably live toot any of it without risk of pain, especially as there's course activities I need my wrist for like calligraphy workshops, for which sorry :/ But I might post some highlights in a few days/ next week if people are interested?

#FantasyMap #worldbuilding

Started a new fantasy map for no particular reason. I used Fractal Terrains to generate a random world and then used the resultant image as the basis of my coastlines.

No idea what will happen with this world or what stories I wil tell there, but I'm sure I will come up with something

*waves* Hi everyone!

I went to Alder Grove's Fiction to talk about my #Kickstarter experience of small successes and the generosity of others.

The Internet Paid for my Book to be Published:

And thanks so much to @aldersprig for hosting me!

Moving country on Thursday, got a big conference next week after a two day turnaround from said move which I'm frantically talk writing for. Joint pain not good in arms, v tired and it's over a month til I can really rest. Getting lots done but I feel like I'm really physically paying for it at the moment. Much curling up.

Saw a family of Rufous Woodpeckers (Micropternus brachyurus) moving together along a tree looking for food today at Tampines Eco Green, Singapore. This is something I haven't see before.

I cannot do anything right today, I literally just sent an email out to seventy people with July in the title when I meant June. I'm so tired. Just all the little things that need doing to keep small volunteer organisations running grind you down over time. Running around keeping everyone else going.

Where are all the other people who do stuff and organise things? It just feels like we're dying out, burning up and choking off and nobody's stepping up and replacing us.

The harpies of Southspear Cove are uniquely adapted to their environment. Unlike their forest & mountain dwelling relatives, they are relatively stocky, with smaller, thinner wings and waterproof plumage. They are unable to fly but they are able propel themselves through the water at great speed, launching themselves up and into unwary boats.

Food and territory disputes with the local sirens are frequent, but rarely deadly... to each other.

Today's mood is running around shouting ააააააააააააააააააააააააააააააააააააააააააააააააააააააააააააააააააააა

It's like shouting aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa, but I can technically count it as Georgian practice.
