Writing Progress, Graphic Challenges

I was caught up on my writing yesterday, had one possible pending that I hadn't made my mind up about yet, and was idle. So I returned to my H-verse and began taking a critical look at what I had written in a mad spate of activity in July/August. It's actually not bad!

I was quite surprised, although I have read and re-read many of the chapters multiple times, I am fairly happy with them. I was revisiting some of the later chapters I have written to determine how to alter one aspect to fit my personal comfort level. And I think I can be successful in the slight changes that I want to make. I'm eager to get back to work on this novel. I like the characters, I like the history that I see for them, and I think there is a story there to be told.

I belong to an on-line group of people, most of whom are probably young enough to be my children or even my grandchildren, assigning challenges based on A Game of Thrones. George RR Martin's five (eventually scheduled for seven) novels are cumbersome, bloody, dark, anoying, need a good editor, and still very readable. This group issues challenges, usually either graphic or writing based, and each of three teams gets points by what its team members submit. I am on Team Stark, my friend who originally got me involved is on Team Lannister. Yesterday's graphic was easy - three pics to post, piece of cake. Now they have a 20 in 20 challenge going - twenty separate pieces of our choice, written or graphic or mixed, in 20 days. I wrote the first piece yesterday - fun! This shouldn't be a problem unless time compresses on me, so keeping up will be the important thing.

Be creative today!

Which graphic, hun? The Jon Snow in my post is an actual TV series poster from Season 2 promos that I found just searching on-line. My sigs, on the other hand, are made from pics that I found, expanded and worked on a bit to make them work for the wording.

I'm actually doing the writing for the 20/20 so far. Two days in, two drabbles. I really enjoy writing drabbles and can usually pound a good one out within 15 minutes or so.

I got the crossword, even got "fire" although I thought it was wrong and didn't post that part of it, but I never got farther than that.
I had not seen that poster. I thought you made it based on the series ads! Your sig banners are lovely and graceful.
Oh thanks, I work with Photoshop a lot, but the five sig panels I use were trying out the CS5 Photoshop that I put onto DH's computer. My old 5.5 version refused to load on his new Win7 system. I assume I'll have to have a copy of CS5 eventually for myself because my own computer is nearing it's end life. But it's still hanging in there and I'm poor - LOL.
