Not with a whimper, but with a bang. Or possibly a splort. She’ll work out the details later.

Speaking of working out the details, if you follow me on Twitter you might have seen the pictures I posted of The Fool’s Errand. Yes, out tiny spaceship is much more physical and much more tiny. I’ve taken some weak stabs at SketchUp over and over again in the last two years, trying to get myself a good 3D art reference for the Errand. I pounded my head against that damnable program to disastrous effect. “All these weird tools and strange controls and aaaargh I wish I could just mold and shape the thing exactly how I wanted as if I were using clay!”

“Oh. Right. I should just use clay.” Which I did. Also to disastrous effect.

But! Shadlyn has some experience sculpting, and quickly and cleanly got us a rough and ready model in no time. She’s my Favorite. And now I’m sitting here, grinning like an idiot, staring at this tiny totem.

And occasionally making “whoosh” noises.
