For the Love of Analogue

Hey there ...


Artist | Hobbyist | Literature
United States
Grace currently lives in Ohio where she's an office monkey by day and weekend dog wrangler. She often complains about the lack of decent sci-fi these days while playing with her fountain pens and typewriter.

She is an avid student of stories, analyst, and writer who's more interested in experimenting with new forms of storytelling than adhering to traditional methods. She always questions classical thinking and enjoys sharing what she's discovered.

Got a burning question related to writing fiction or storytelling in general? I'll be happy to answer! Simply send a note! :note:

Give a llama, get one back!


Would anyone be interested in seeing tutorials about dog training/puppy raising? This is something I know a lot about but have never shared here on dA, oddly. And I'm getting my new puppy tomorrow, so it would be fun to write about our adventures! 

11 deviants said I don't need advise, but I'm interested and would like to see what you do with your dogs.
7 deviants said Yes, I have a dog/puppy and need advice!
5 deviants said PUPPIES!!! GIVE THEM TO ME! :eager:
3 deviants said Nah, that wouldn't interest me.
And by "writing" I mean an educational discussion of writing fiction in all its forms. (Sorry if you got notified about this journal twice ... something weird happened.)

I've been thinking about it, and while I love discussing topics related to fiction though my polls and journals, real-time discussion is much more fun! And it can cover a lot more ground in a short amount of time.

So what do you think? Would you be interested in participating in a super casual series of ongoing chats where we discuss topics related to writing fiction and attempt to learn new things together? What would you want to talk about and learn? How would you structure it, if it were to have any structure at all?

Give me your thoughts and/or raise your hand if you'd be interested in participating in something of this nature!

In Other News ...

I may be getting a new border collie puppy soon! My friend whom I acquired my first border collie from has a five-month-old puppy I may be adopting. I've worked with her a few times, and she's adorable, smart, and quite a snuggle queen. So that's exciting!

Also, I started my new job last week. It's going well, though I hope they give me more things to do soon because punching numbers into Excel all day is a bit of a bore ... but definitely not the worst job I can imagine. The people are nice, the hours are good, and the pay is great, and that's the first time I've been able to say all that about a job, so yeah. Can't complain. :XD:

Still trying to write more. Making some progress on a post-apocalyptic mind-fuck. 

Oh, and I went to a fountain pen show last weekend! Yes, I'm THAT nerdy. It was freaking amazing. I took a calligraphy class, saw all kinds of awesome antique pens, and bought a freaking gorgeous new purple Visconti. It has a gold stub nib that writes like a dream. :eager: I also acquired just a few other things ...

I think that about covers it. Other than your brilliant and insightful thoughts on my writing chat idea, how's life going for all of you? Writing or doing anything interesting? Any big plans coming up?
