Could you click the link below and fill out a 2-question poll? (Technically there are three questions, if you want to give me your email address, but that's not required.)

I'm revamping my author website/blog and email newsletter, and I want to give away free stuff! But I can't decide which freebie to give away first.

Answer 2 questions at Survey Monkey.

Thanks!

Is anyone still here? Surely a poll will get some interaction, right? :D

I'm working on a series of three urban fantasy novels set in Indianapolis, and while I have a working title and working cover for the first two, I'm open to opinions. Everyone has one, right?

[Poll #2043889]

I have questions about the cover, too. What do you think of the cover? What does the cover make you think the story is about?

innerslytherin: (civil war cannon)
About to head off for a quick trip to the south to see Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park. Mom and I got a vacation in January, but Dad didn't get one, and he's itching for a Civil War fix. *G*

Problem is, I'm working hard on learning to travel light, and I'm already taking the novel revision along with me. So do I pack my biggish dedicated travel journal, which I only started using last year, and didn't take to Trinidad & Tobago since I was traveling light there? I have BIG handwriting, so I can't use a tiny little notebook. But Junior size would be okay, and take up less room than my oddly-shaped 9x8x1 inch vacation journal. *sigh*

So anyway, that got me wondering about what other people do for travel journals.

I have a single notebook dedicated to my travels and carry it everywhere. When it's filled, I get another dedicated travel journal.

I keep a daily(ish) journal and just take it along when I'm traveling. I write my travels in it, so my travel history is found spread out across multiple daily(ish) journals.

I rely on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and blog posts to provide my record.

innerslytherin: (photography)
Since Mom and I are going to TNT in January, I want to get a blog set up where we can easily post some of the thousands of pictures we will take. I'm going to have the netbook along to get pictures off the DSLR and will hopefully have plentiful web access, but I don't want to spend a huge amount of vacation time online. So any photographers or artists who have online galleries, etc., can you please respond?

NOTE: I want Mom to be able to upload stuff as well as doing it myself. She keeps a nature blog and I want to find a way for her to post pictures easily all the time.

Okay, I have an idea percolating in my mind that was inspired by the book I just finished reading, but is in no way fanfic or derivative. (I've seen it done several times, it's just that this time it caught my fancy.) So I have a poll that is open to friends only at the moment. The results should be viewable to only me, so if you choose to leave your email address in the text box, it should be safe.

I know I'm being rather cryptic, but I have a big friends list. I don't want to share too many details until I know who might be interested. Also, if you don't fill out the poll and I am interested in your answers, don't be surprised if I poke at you. So it's better to fill it out, even if your final answer is no, than to skip it entirely. ;)

ETA: I am never careful enough when I craft polls, no matter how hard I try!

1. If you don't write fantasy, you can stop with that question.

2. I should have made the sub-genre question a tickbox. If you write more than one, please answer "Something else" and comment to that effect.

3. The poll is specifically for writing (or illustrating!) fantasy, but if you would like to volunteer for reading/editing/cheerleading that is also fine. :)

So my best friend is making me show her how to use Twitter tomorrow afternoon. I consider myself a basic-to-intermediate user of Twitter, and while I've got a couple of websites I can show her, I know there must be tips, tricks, and tweeps that I'm missing out on. So help me out!

Question for you all: Where do you get your pictures printed?

If you print them yourself, I don't need to know that. LOL I usually do, but I have a lot of pictures I want to print quickly, and frankly I hate going through the process of trimming each one. I don't have a photo printer, just a regular one that prints four 4x6 to the sheet.

So. Given that I'm lazy at the moment, where do y'all print your pictures? Photobucket's partner (Meeb? Can't remember)? Target? CVS? Walgreens? Let me know.

I'm interested in how much it is per print as well as your satisfaction with the quality. I'm thinking glossy if it makes a difference on the finish.

It's frustrating to me that EVERY place that I look at online wants me to upload my pictures before they quote a price at me. Come on, just tell me brackets! If I print 260 pictures (doubles of 130 actually), how much is it gonna cost me?

In other news, I stopped at the nearest liquor store to see if they had bourbon. I don't usually stop there, because the guy is on the sex offender registry and frankly creeps me out a little, not to mention they used to have porn DVDs right on the counter by the cash register. But this time I was still waffling when I went through D'ton, so I didn't stop at the D'ton liquor store, and I didn't want to go all the way to T'town. So I stopped in C, and asked what they had in the way of bourbon. And the guy offered me Jim Beam and Jack Daniels. I don't like Jim Beam, and Jack is Tennessee whiskey, NOT bourbon. *snort* So I'll have to make do without.

So I am 99% finished with a David Rossi fanmix...but I have this problematic song.

It's called "Ruby Ridge" by Johnny Philko, and we all know Rossi was calling the shots at Ruby Ridge. This is the sort of song that Rossi would fucking hate, but at the same time he would probably listen to it over and over to torture himself. (Come on, we've seen him with that darn bracelet!)

Ruby Ridge has been a big part of Rossi's life--it made him start thinking about leaving the FBI, and it's come back to haunt him twice now in the two years he's been back. So...there's actually a song out there about Ruby Ridge, and I wanted to put it in the mix.

The problem is threefold: I hate 99% of all war protest songs*, the guy's voice fluctuates between annoying-as-hell and oddly-interesting, and the song itself isn't really the best (despite being somewhat catchy in a very annoying sort of way). But not everyone hates war protest songs, and there are lots of people who love Dylan while I find his voice annoying most of the time, so maybe people will like Johnny Philko.

So...What do I do with this song?

[Poll #1402056]



* "99 Luftballons" is not included in this. Nor, oddly, is "War".
