Fated -- News and thoughts about my book, Fated, and the world in general.

However far away I will always love you.

However long I stay I will always love you.

Whatever words I say I will always love you.

I will always love you.”

Spencer Finch - 366, Emily Dickinson’s Miraculous Year (2009)

This work is based on Emily Dickinson in 1862, when she wrote 366 poems in 365 days. It is a real-time memorial to that year, which burns for exactly one year. The sculpture is comprised of 366 individual candles arranged in a linear sequence, each of which burns for 24 hours. The colour of each candle matches a colour mentioned in the corresponding poem. For the poems in which no colour is mentioned, the candles are made out of natural paraffin.

Wow! This is so cool!

Cassandra Clare: writing question

cassandraclare:

hi cassie, i was just wondering how you think up character? do you like, think about them intently and what their purpose in the book should be and how they’d work out in the book, or do you just think of it suddenly and work something out while writing the book? thanks

I think all authors have their metaphors for character development. Stephen King says it’s like digging up a piece of driftwood on a beach that reveals its shape as you go. I think of characters as adding on a little bit of themselves every day like a coral reef until they’re fully formed.

NaNoWriMo

As a personal goal this month I’ve decided to take on the NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) challenge! Since I’m finished with the initial creation phase of my first book, Fated, I’ll be writing my second. Wish me luck, November is a busy month and I’m already a week in. Word count so far: 1237. Many, many, many more to go!

Ancient Egyptian Fake Toes, Earliest Prosthetics

Two ancient Egyptian wooden toes have been confirmed as the world’s oldest prosthetics.
Discovered in the necropolis of Thebe near present-day Luxor, the two artificial toes — the so-called Greville Chester toe housed in the British Museum and the Tabaketenmut toe at the Egyptian Museum in Cairo — have been called by several experts the earliest prosthetic devices in existence.
Exquisitely crafted from cartonnage (a sort of papier maché mixture made using linen, glue and plaster) the Greville Chester toe dates from before 600 BC and comes in the shape of the right big toe and a portion of the right foot.
The other false toe, a three-part wood and leather artifact dating from between 950 to 710 B.C., was found attached to the right toe of a mummy identified as Tabaketenmut. She was a priest’s daughter who might have lost her toe following gangrene triggered by diabetes.

walk hard…

Wow, this is so cool!

Totally done that. Way more than once…
