Having a writer block moment and then Eroking sent me his 'image of the day'. I don't know the original artist and would be delighted to credit them.

Eroking sent me the original and I said that's the closest "potential tsika art" I've come across -- recolor as Tsika in the morning - sans make up and unbrushed hair.

1) It shows I can't even recolor worth a damn (much less draw)
2) Maybe it'll encourage someone to take a shot at drawing the characters

My editor and I are looking over my first 10+ chapters and having a fist fight about how best to portray voices. She's right, my tenses and voice (passive, active) are all over the place and that can't stand. The chapters are also still way too sketchy and short. Chapter 8 in particular is a disaster for all the above reasons.

One of the biggest problems is how to portray character thoughts versus mere descriptive/action text. It just feels right to deliver character thoughts in present tense first person like their dialog (e.g. "Hey!" <--> Oh, that'll hurt.). But how to work that into what is essentially descriptive past tense (e.g. They proceeded down the sidewalk.) is making me pull on my hair. I've seen some fiction use italics for internal thoughts, but ... I'm not fond of visual cues.

Anyway, that's today's behind stage agonizing. My chapter for today is essentially written but I'm trying to slow down til we get this resolved to minimize rewrites.

Okay, no chapter today, looking at tomorrow before I finish beating all the chapters with a hatchet. So, instead here's a clip of the first night at Aina's Monterey club with Kpau singing the opening number. ... it is ... uniquely Kpau in some ways. Kpau and Freezepop just seem to connect.

Some photos of Aina and the band in Monterey, California.

Kpau catches Aina in a snapshot, followed by the tour of her home (Alwyn on the left).


Kpau makes Aina do yet another spit-take.


Aina brings the group to the night club, Aina and Blar's fans had heard.


Aina glares at the surveillance camera (and her security guards watching them).


Aina: Well, Blar, I can say you lasted a little bit longer.

I had a very strange moment in the grocery the other day -- I saw Aina (so to speak). Almost six feet, very slender, attractive, 30-something, silver hair, blue eyes. I desperately wanted to snap a pic but no opportunity arose and stalking really isn't a good idea.

If I were live-casting - Krysten Ritter is a fair ringer for Tsika if she were 10 inches shorter and grew her hair longer.

implicit nudity, NSFW but nothing more than PG-13

Some file pictures - size comparisons, Tsika+Glyc, Tsika+Blar

Tsika, candy cane goth | Tsika, neoprene formal

I was looking around for ace female guitarists on youtube and found these examples from age 7 to young adult.

Working on chapter 21 .... here's some videos from their "Melodic Metal Night" on New Year's Eve.
Unfortunately, the limitations of the software (4 avatars) mean we'll just have to imagine Aina offstage with the keyboards.

This is closer to the length I'd like the chapters to average. Onward.

How to waste time and amuse oneself -- implementing Blar, Tsika, Glyc, and Kpau in Skyrim. Sadly, the only tattoo mods I've found don't do what I want. Oddly, Blar gave me the toughest time ... eye and hair color not quite there. Got several comments that Skyrim "ages" characters
