Going Solar (Sonneblom Grom)

For fun (but little financial incentive) I consider translating my children’s stories into Afrikaans, starting with The Sunflower That Roared. Mm: this cover might be a bit noir…

Maybe it’s more suited as a poster for solar power:

This needs to be the future:
The state of residential solar power/ Ars Technica

In other exciting news, galore is now available! (on iBooks only though)

Cracked Ink

FATIGUE The Micro-fiction of Critical Cracking
FATIGUE
The Micro-fiction of Critical Cracking

Contemplating doing NaNoWriMo? That leads to thinking about pantsers and non-pantsers. And in some peculiar ¬†cases then, of course, to panzers (no, NOT panthers, but that’s a good one too, Brownie points, you auto-suggestive browser!). And from panzers (which is literally a coat of mail) it’s just a hop, a skip, and a jump to howitzers, and a full-blown WAR! The war of words…

nanowrimo, nay or yay?

and the dark horse says: ready to run!

and the foal says: too little horse power!

and the old nag says: remember what happened last time? Neigh! Neigh!

memories of flying pigs with cast iron wings

not spheroidal cast iron, which would be as heavy

but prevent crack growth…

just your run-of-the-not-mill (come on, it’s a casting)

grey, grey cast iron

and we’re back at the fatigue and critical crack length

time to put the muzzle brake on…

you really don’t want to bear these arms

crack growth in ink is

harder to study than in

cannon muzzle brakes

knowing the difference

between a howitzer and

a HowzIt is good…

still, she whispered,

we will always have Paris;

that is the sad thing

And Le Voil√†, it’s done! A chapter for each syllable of the constipated haiku. Like everyone knows, the best novels- like the worst ones- should never leave their authors’ heads.
