Conlang Experience

In retrospect to my Science fiction project. TSK. My animator and TV co-writer decided that we wanted a specific language for our world.

There are many places you can advertise, but we went straight to one of the best sites on the internet.

http://jobs.conlang.org

and I conversed with their Vice President to get my job advert perfect. It did take a little longer than expected, but good things aren’t worth rushing.

Our Advert for TSK went live these last 2 days. http://jobs.conlang.org/archives/222

It’s been an interesting experience, because I’ve never really had to go through, reading and absorbing Job Application. I guess the joy of being the one in charge, even with the other guys on board is that these are the kind of decisions I will have to make.

One thing I noticed and was impressed more about the applicant’s than there actual qualifications, which some are so impressive it’s unreal. Is that the personal touch also makes you think and feel more in regards to that person applying for the job. They did their homework, they looked up and noted who I was, where my internet presence lay. And made it known. This was good. Duly noted for any jobs I may apply for myself. 🙂

My weekend now will be talking through things with my partners, looking over the applicants, and making a decision on who we would like to hire.

I am very excited about this. It takes my world to a whole different level which I think is awesome.

Exciting week!

Well this week has had it’s ups and downs, that is for sure.

In other news had to take my cat, Spooky to the vets, she has a face tumour, and while unsightly at least isn’t causing any pain.

Bobby went to see the Avian Vet, and although overweight. He’s a very healthy boy. (Now on a diet) and I’ll be monitoring his weight a lot more.

Watching me type as usual :)

The muse at 4am – stop it muse….

So yeah she speaks in weird ways. And I woke from a dream which had to be written down. NOT EDITED! as it was sleepily written….

This is pretty rough and maybe will get to see the light of day, but I’ll post it here to share, as it really won’t. It’s like not the sort of thing I’d really write about. Not sci Fi enough for me, unless I set it in a post apocalypse world.

Endeavour

Feath Charleston, an outsider in her town, a young performing artist of the highest calibre. Set to upstage some of the best in world wide competitions.

Then her mother contracted a rare illness and Feath was isolated and taunted, bullied at school. No one wanted to be near her. Feath couldn’t understand this and it hurt.

Ani, her Mother packed their things and decided it was time to move them on. As sick as she was, Ani, shouldn’t be driving and a terrible accident left Feath in a coma for 3 years and Ani at deaths door.

When Feath finally came around, her mother had passed away. Leaving her with nothing. Feath wished she’d died in that accident, her life and choices she’d made over.
Getting back to the one thing she loved Feath did everything she could to re-build her life.
One day an argument left her puzzled over an internet site, password protected and logged on several untraceable websites.

A boy, Jez, watching Feath from a distance as she practiced above the water the one thing she loves, twisting.

Jez a technical genius. Feath plucks up the courage to approach him and asks him to help her crack the code and visit the site that her mother had created.

A world of secrets.

Three years of letters to her daughter.

Will Feaths’ life ever be the same.

So yeah… there you go. 🙂

WEEK OFF!!!

Can you tell I’m excited!

Nano count as of this morning is 36,289

The week working up to my hols was very hard work. I had the writing binge out of the way and then couldn’t motivate myself to do anything that I should have other than writing. So I didn’t. But, Friday came, I finished work. And then got caught up on nearly everything I was supposed to do. Even managed to get the gym.

This has been an exciting weekend for me, I’ve tried my best not to get over involved in some discussions going on, over the net. Forum procrastination is another thing I’m very good at. Closed it all and got stuck in.

I’ve a few more bits to read then I can dive totally back into TSK, which I am also excited about because I’m talking of launching a website! I’ve the domain names all ready to go. Just need to work out what to do on them.

I do have a little bit of a hangover this morning, so off to catch up on some more things, and writing to do.

Weekend nanowrimo success – 17,218

Yep, you got it, from 6k Sat the 1st to 17 and over. I had to get ahead for the working week. Now I feel like I can do my job, not panic and chill till next weekend, when I’m off work for 9 whole days to crank this puppy to the next level.

Nano er – out.
