I recently created an index page for Emma 4 at the Emma Adaptations Pages. Hopefully that’ll help keep things organized!
I’ve also closed Storied, our writing workshop. I think everybody’s just too busy to write these days!
David Joseph Designs is looking for an historic fashion blogger! If you’re interested, get in touch with David Joseph via his website.
A part-time blogger is currently needed to write about historic fashion for David Joseph Designs, a growing atelier featuring unique fashion design and couture clothing with vintage appeal. This will be a great opportunity for fashionistas and history buffs seeking to stretch their imagination and find captivating topics to discuss on the site. The writer must speak and write fluent English and possess experience in the fashion industry and/or a willingness to learn. The topics must reflect the designerâ€™s passion for historic fashion, its cultural relevance to the period and its lingering affects on modern style. The writer must be willing to conduct online research, when necessary, and provide appealing visual graphics to accompany each and every post. Interested parties should contact the designer with a brief explanation of their field of interest, prior experience and the compensation you expect. The writer should expect to start within the same day of hire.
Storied, our brand new roleplay and writing workshop.
We’re still working out the bugs (and I’ll be retemplating it once the semester’s over), but it’s generally ready to go. Consider this a beta testing phase. 🙂
Have a happy holiday season, everyone!
The big news of the moment: I’m writing an article on fashion in the Northanger Abbey adaptations for my friend Laurel Ann’s “Go Gothic” festival at Austenprose Blog. It’s set to publish on October 15. If you’re a fan of Jane Austen, you’ll really enjoy her blog!
Now for the boring stuff:
Kali enjoys simplifying her internet life. Kali also has trouble letting go of past projects that have outstripped their usefulness. This means that Kali has trouble making decisions as to what to update and what to delete.
I’m in the process of redesigning and otherwise generally cleaning up Better Haunts & Graveyards. The current design is something like six years old, and it looks it. Once that’s out of the way, Halloween-tree.com and Livadia.org are going to have their days of reckoning.
Right now, I’m thinking I’ll just merge the Halloween site with Better Haunts; there isn’t enough left to justify its continued independent existence. As for the Romanov site, I’m torn. On one hand, it looks old and we just don’t have the time or interest to update it anymore. Further, all it seems to do in its current limbo state is invite image-ganking bandwidth thieves and freaky Russian spam. On the other hand, it would sincerely suck to see all of our hard work on the scrapbooks and such go down the crapper. As usual, I’m the queen of indecision.
In other news, Strawberry Canyon and Desire are closing up shop. The current plan per Marsha and myself is to open up a new, joint writing workshop with no sim and a broader focus. I think most of us were bored with the figure skating premise.
When will it debut? Not a clue. Probably sometime before Christmas.
