The Latest

Since I've been away, here are some updates on, well, everything: Death & Elsie's been a little delayed due to computer problems on my part and illness/busy schedule for the narrator. I'll be in New York in a couple of weeks, but I'll be able to catch up on things soon. Boy is still on the slate for later this year. I've also just gotten my film invitation from DeviantArt, so I'll be able to upload videos to DA with a quickness! So, how are you all? Stop by Facebook or G+ and chat for a bit.

Dont Go Near The Old Ash Tree

My dear father died in a faraway war Left Mother and I quite without hope We used our last pennies to leave our fine city And away to a house on a farm And on this farm, on the thorniest edge Stood an ash tree as old as the earth With branches so gnarled and twisted and black That my every bone cried out to climb "But no! Oh no!" said our funny old neighbor Wringing her hands like two rags "Don't you go near it, young Miss Eliza For her roots are bad all the way down" I thought it silly but did as she told Until Mother went missing one eve So sad had she been that I feared the worst And went down to the old ash tree And now here I stand but here there is nothing Naught but a flowering weed But the breeze, I could swear, carries upon it The scent of my mother's perfume Yes, the wind, I declare, does carry upon it The scent of my mother's perfume

Progress Report Time

And now for your regular update of Things Katy Is Working On:

  1. Boy
  2. My second novel
  3. Finishing up "Don't Go Near the Old Ash Tree" (a minute-long short I attempted to finish all in one night about a week ago and obviously didn't succeed)
  4. Eating a taco (75% complete)
  5. *drumroll* plans for next month's 31 Days of Halloween.

Maybe I'll stick a live video chat in there somewhere if you're good and eat all your vegetables. Sound good?
