    Finished a supplement for White Wolf Publishing's Scion game line - in fact, the final item to be released for the aformentioned line. It's available from drivethrurpg as a steal for just $6.99 US (shameless self promotion link).

    Working on an adventure supplement for a pulp setting - the upcoming "Path of Kane" supplement for the R. E. Howard character Solomon Kane, part of the Savage Worlds line.

    Started rehearsing Repeater, a fresh reprise of February's spoken word gig. Looking forward to hitting both programs of stories old and new, and reprising DRIZZLE, Repeater's centrepiece, on both nights.

    Between this and SLINGS AND ARROWS, I'm growing eager to re-enter theatre proper...

    Finished the first draft of a script for a martial arts/hit-men thriller called Lone Guns, for a New York-based producer. He hopes to get it made as a film and as a graphic novel. I've attached a concept visual for the Lone Guns comic:

    Progress Report:
    Read more good work

    Um, I watched DVDs and BREAKING BAD. Does that count?
    Hope that the one short play I let out into the wild wins a staged reading....

    Well, today was sitting in on my first auditions for my work EVAH, and since my director (Yes! I have one!) had to deal with an illness, I sat with the actors as they read, and took notes. Casting is prejudice (but used on the whole for good); headshots are so cruel (and pretty). But there's a long way to go...

    As for the health and de-cluttering tasks: Ongoing.
    Complete the one story I'm working on now for class, whether it stays a poem or turns into a short story, novel or play (comic book would be keen...)

    This is where I need HELP. Another story is being published online, and the publisher's thinking of turning it into a graphic novel. I've read up about comic book contracts online, but I'm only seeing the most general of advice. Does anyone have any good links about contracts, especially for creator-owned work? If I'm not going to get massively paid, then I'd like to keep the rights, especially for non-comic books.

    For all your non-comic book contract/publishing needs: misssnark.blogspot.com

    It's one handy archive. Tells you all about agents and important things like not being completely insane.

    Progress Report:

    3/4 contracts filled for Ravenous Romance. Since my next deadline isn't til September, I've now begun absolutely wallowing in the big important project I've been waiting on doing for a year and some change. By wallowing, I mean writing. A lot of it. And it actually feels good again, so, that's nice.

    But I don't think I'm insane, yet.

    And I don't think I can get an agent yet, since I'm not published. Reputable ones need to see that, right?

    This month I hope to make a serious start to two writing projects I have been thinking about for along time now.

    One which is still unnamed is a children’s book with a slightly return to oz darkness to it, I have started working it out with a good friend of mine who has been itching for me to write it ever since I told her the general idea, seeing as she was so exited and was coming up with some good ideas it only seems fair to bring her onboard make it a co-written project.

    Lastly a project called Reaper Heights, I posted some stuff awhile ago about it but since then the artist has vanished and I was left spinning in a world of uncertainty about the whole thing, this time I am taking a more professional approach, just need to work through my crushing self doubt.

    A couple of projects at the moment.

    1. Working on a pair of goggles that integrate camera lens filters as lenses; thus, interchangeable, customizable, fun. Base unit is done, now I just need to trick it out.

    2. Banging away at the novel.

    3. Expressive installation-art kind of piece utilizing electrical wiring and switches integrated with emotional and cognitive concepts. I have the wiring skills to pull this off, unsure about the art skills.

    The listenership for the podcast seems to have plateaued. I think I need to either rein in my impatience and trust the listeners or come up with something to drum up interest.... Still, I'll be recording episode 21 tonight, which is better than I thought I'd get to.

    Well, darn. The graphic designer on Nørwegian Style came trough, and I didn't even have to threaten to break in and steal his feet while he slept. In fact, all I had to do was sit around and wait. Isn't it loveable?

    I have so far: moved flat, which meant I could do another thing on my list which was: purchase and use a sewing machine. The purchasing has been done, some rusty sewing has taken place. A weekend in my future beckons for proper set up of a craft corner. I finished and submitted my masters thesis *and* updated my portfolio to the point where it has content (inc. said thesis) and while I have not written any law librarian articles (have in fact fled law libraries), I have seen the biggest project I was involved in to the end - we launch next week at the big sector conference. And my new sector work has meant that I now have two projects that have gone live that I can point at and say: me, I coded that.

    And I've actually be hellishly crafty recently, by making shit to send to people. The haul so far includes magnetic buttons, a tiara and bathsoaks. More are in my future along with setting up my goddamn etsy store - I will set it up, dangit! - and srsly pulling finger on the public craft drops.

    An update on my pin-up girly book: I've got 19 of the planned 30 illustrations done, and a couple more are struggling to burst out of my subconscious as we speak.

    I have decided that by the end of this year I will have a photography/writing book published. The next couple of weeks will be the concept and this summer/fall will be the shooting times.

    Also, I'm looking to revive an old comics project. If any artists are interested, let me know (e-mail is in the link)

    I have made a book DAD SOLD CRACK HERE: Photographs of New York City

    I'd purchased a new, snappier sounding domain than rachaelnoel.com, and started using my surname again, in an attempt to slowly regain my proper name from the transvestite who owns "rachaelfox.com"

    I just finished the first draft of the new site: RAEFOX.COM in which I try my damnedest to raise my own personal standards a few notches.

    Next, a return to painting and drawing. I'm sick of the digital world.
