Prevarication is all well and good, but there comes a point when you have to set it aside.

[livejournal.com profile] sparrow2000 finally spurred me to it - I have registered for Writercon. Yay!

Still have to actually pay, of course, but hey, I've done the difficult bit.

Do you enjoy photography?

Do you enjoy a simple sort of challenge that can make you look at what's around you with different eyes?

There's a community called [livejournal.com profile] photo_scavenger where [livejournal.com profile] curiouswombat posts a prompt each Monday and you get to post two (or more if you put the more behind a cut) photos on that theme.

Recent prompts include:
Favourite Places
Face
Keys
Bottles
Home
Circles
Stars
and more

And speaking as someone who determinedly keeps my fandom ID separate from my private life, I can say that it is quite possible to fill those prompts without exposing anything personal.

So why don't you go and take a look? And maybe join in?

Somebody pointed me at this. I am sharing mainly for [livejournal.com profile] speakr2customrs and [livejournal.com profile] curiouswombat, but others might also appreciate the pretty.

Personally, I find the ant-like movement of the people a little bit queasy making, but the scenery is very nice.

Have I sold it to you? *g*

What have I been doing for the last age or two? I've been wrestling with this story, which is now, finally, all at second (third, fourth) draft stage and if I don't post it, [livejournal.com profile] sparrow2000 has promised she will do something. And I don't want that, because she has an imagination.

I am off work today, but I am away tomorrow, so I'll be posting future chapters on Saturdays.

Pendragon's Folly, Chapter 2

John Watson was trained at St. Bartholomew's Hospital as a British Army doctor and served as a Captain in the Fifth Northumberland Fusiliers.


The Royal Northumberland Fusiliers was a real regiment (Wikipedia Link). I thought people might be interested to see one of the war memorials in Newcastle city centre, this one naming the Fifth Northumberland Fusiliers. It was erected in 1907 to commemorate the dead of the South African War, now more commonly called The Boer War.

Pictures below the cut. )

In other news, we finally watched the last two episodes of Ripper Street, last night. Whoa! What an ending. Goodness, but the potential there for complexities in the future. *shakes head* So sad it's apparently not being continued.

On a more positive note, Musketeers seems like good, rollicking fun and is full of ridiculously pretty young men (including Lancelot with a pointy beard and moustache *g*)
