No, maybe these aren’t all “art,” but they’re fun: “Weird” mailboxes What would your ideal mailbox look like? Design one that says something about you, your artwork, and your aesthetic! (though of course in my area, I have to worry about rednecks with baseball bats either ruining my work or breaking their arm on my […]

Posted by Dindrane on November 27, 2007 in art, links |

Go over to where I’ve posted a link to the gallery of a fascinating young Japanese artist. She’s redoing the definition of “Yamato Nadeshiko,” which is long overdue. I explain more about it over there. An anime-like aesthetic with political import, and just plain cool, to boot.

pondering–which words count?

Posted by Dindrane on November 15, 2007 in writing |

If my goal is to write at least 1000 words a day, and today I wrote over that, but then deleted it all because I wanted to take the scene a completely different direction, does that earlier 1000 words still count towards today’s total?
