a good day  
I unexpectedly got about 4500 words written today. Finished "Don't Wreck Your Soul" and submitted it (a mere 3 weeks late, cringe), and got probably half of the next "No Dominion" Kickstarter short story reward written. I had expected it to be a lighthearted romp (it's called "The Christmas Hollidays"), only, er, it's turning out to be something that Morrison is going to kill me for. Kill me dead.

I also consulted with the woman for whom the Magick 4 Terri short story is going to be written, and she gave me a framework for her story which causes me to cackle and dance with glee. It will be an Old Races story, so at some point I'm sure it'll come to light where people get to read it. :)

*Completely* awesome photos: Natsumi Hayashi, Levitating Girl. They're utterly beautiful pictures. They look exactly like flying in dreams feels like. Her website is here, and it makes me want to take pictures of myself flying. Except, as a conversation on Twitter agreed, it didn't seem likely I could jump 300 times in a row to try to get the right image. Clearly I need to spend 2012 practicing jumping. One jump on the 1st. 2 on the 2nd, up to 365 on December 31st... :)

Bed now, that I might finish the short story tomorrow. *splat*

Saw the flying pics when you tweeted them. Thank you for showing them to me. They're beautiful.

If you want to try it yourself, you could start by getting something like this. And maybe setting the camera to movie mode. Lower resolution, but being able to just grab a frame could make it much easier to get the timing right. (Of course, shutter speed could be a problem. Motion blur would ruin it. But if you get it right at the top of the jump, I'd think you'd be fine.)
