Beta-y thoughts

Yeah, everything's sort of gone off the rails, writing-wise--family obligations, random life stuff, cat in the hospital. (He's home now and doing fine--apparently he's just going to periodically get urinary-tract blockages whenever a thunderstorm freaks him out, nothing to be done about it, just try not to let him go into renal failure and die. Um, OK.) I've got some more child-care obligations coming up, but hopefully I'll be able to get work done tomorrow and later in the week.

I also ordered a new computer, so hopefully I won't be having to deal with all the freeze-ups and drama of my ancient machine failing to cope with change. Of course, I'll have to deal with the drama of putting everything I need onto a new computer, which is why I prefer not replacing them, but such is life.

Anyway, something I've been thinking about is doing decorative chapter ornaments for the Trang and Trust e-books. I've been seeing more and more of them in the books I've been reading. It's cute, it seems to work even on my phone, and it sounds pretty easy to do--just insert a little centered graphic instead of "* * *". Needless to say the graphic would be a tiny little black-and-white portal....
