      Hey there! National Emoji Day is coming up. What are your favorite emojis? I tend to veer toward these: πŸ€—πŸ₯³πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ€”πŸ’œπŸ˜¬β™₯οΈπŸŒŸπŸ€ πŸ΄πŸ•πŸ¦„πŸΏπŸ’©β˜ οΈπŸ€―πŸ˜ (in no particular order and I’m just throwing some out there because I could very well be an emoji abuser, at times). Look on your recently used page and see which ones you use the most or used most recently.

      My newest favs are: πŸ₯°πŸ« πŸ«₯🫑(what does that one even mean?)🫀

      Throw out some of yours!

      How did you find this space? Was it through the newsletter, the emoji blog post, or did you click on Campfire Chat and find yourself here?

      I must have space themed emojis! Especially this month, my work is all focused on s-p-a-c-e!!!

      I’ve managed to get through the Silver level prompts. Only two more levels to go with 1 week left. Shockingly large amount of work! But I’m having so much fun!

      That’s super exciting! I bet you’re having fun–and you’ll get ‘er done! Your excitement re: World Anvil is contagious. Makes me want to check it out! Map out my sister towns and the gangs. 🀠 I’m planning on including a crude map for book 2 so when I saw your maps I was geeked.

      I’m hoping to get a map of the Spaceport together before the end of the event. Right now, I’m fighting with an image of a harpy. Trying to remind myself: words. Just do the words. Pretty later…

      And am absolutely failing.

      Did you ever notice that the IRS logo could be seen as a harpy? Yeah, I know it is an Eagle, but really… what’s the difference?

      Take a deep breath and blow it out–you’ve got this!

      On a side note, if you feel so inclined, post your map here or on a new thread. It’d inspire others. But I also think you might need to tell you inner task master to have a rest. You’re not failing, you’re distracted.

      One of the drawing instructors (Roland, my cover designer) was doing a talk at our inservice meeting one quarter. He was showing the instructors how the hand is “in conversation” with the brain and how he taught his students to just get something down. Just like you said with the words. However, maybe if you purge the harpy from brain to W.A. you can move on. To run with the harpy theme and be gross–it’s a matter of splat now, fix later. At any rate, I mention that because that’s what you’re doing. How you said that reminded me of his talk.

      You’re in conversation with yourself and getting this “sketch” out–your inner task master is just interrupting you with mean ideas of “failure.” It’s interrupting you with funny things, too. Harpy–snicker. That’s your pocket book (IRS) adding to the conversation. Oh, wait–that might be my brain talking πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‚

      There are weird interludes throughout this bizarre sci-fi world where day-to-day business practices intervene. So…having the IRS be on the same level as the alien spider-people fits in weird ways. And yes, once I get that map done, I’ll share it with you!

      Sadly, the map isn’t fitting into any of the prompts specifically. I need it to give to the cross-over author that I’m working with in August, so all of this will tie in with that…

      SO MUCH FUN!

      Lol. That sounds like a lot of wacky, interactive, creative fun. Can’t wait to see the map! I didn’t realize you could collaborate like that in that world. πŸ₯³πŸ’œπŸ’œ

      It is amazing how things tie together, just like in real life. And today they’re giving us a special class in building alien technology. How cool is that???

    • July 14, 2022 at 1:55 pm #1141

      Yes and yes! I also think it’s funny given your “space” emojis at the beginning of this thread.

    • July 14, 2022 at 1:55 pm #1142

      I’m all about space this month!

    • July 14, 2022 at 1:55 pm #1144

      That’s an awesome song ✨✨✨ and you’re so fancy!

    • July 14, 2022 at 1:55 pm #1145

      That’s your website being all fancy! Post any Spotify URL into a message and poof! I’m betting it embeds other content well, too. Nice program…

    • July 14, 2022 at 1:55 pm #1146

      Well, I do have an awesome website designer/teacher friend, you know. πŸ˜‰ She hooked me up and taught me well 😁

      That’s good to know. I like embedding things, lol.GIFs, videos, music, images…

    • July 14, 2022 at 1:55 pm #1147

      me, too!
