The Lincoln crew went to Ceres with a mission: capture the Diaspora Group facilities at the dwarf planet for Earth. Establish a toe-hold in the solar system and seize a key facility.
They barely made it to Ceres.
Now Jessica Reynolds faces a choice between her mission and what she knows is right.
The Diaspora Group sent out ships to simultaneously colonize the twelve worlds of the solar system.
Rhea Silvia started as the Media Coordinator on Venus — in the floating cloud city Aphrodite — and now Mars presents a new challenge, and a new opportunity to make a name for herself that will span the solar system.
Terra Blackstone, leader of the Diaspora Group, returns to Luna only to discover a threat that could undo everything that she has worked to create!
The control of the twelve Diaspora colonies across the solar system hangs in the balance.
Rather than post each day, I thought I might share my daily sketches in a weekly post instead.
Carys Rex, professional daredevil and freelance adventure writer, wanted the next big adventure. After everything that she had tackled on Earth the next challenge was a sky city floating in hurricane force winds on another planet — Venus!
Hired by the Diaspora Group, Carys gets a chance to visit the most remarkable colony established and discover new adventures among the sulfuric acid clouds.
Larunda Stark wants the Chief Geologist position in the Diaspora Group’s Taft outpost on Mercury. One of thirteen lucky colonies launched throughout the solar system, Mercury is key to the success of the effort and unforgiving of mistakes.
Also in the running for the position is Mason Gray. As if she needed the distraction.
Everything the Diaspora Group plans centers on success at Mercury and it could all either be her greatest success — or greatest failure.
Worked on the self-portrait a bit more this morning. I’ve been spending a lot of time lately working on things other than writing and painting. Taxes, for one. I need to get that done so that I can finish my financial aide application. Yep, I’m heading back to school for another graduate degree (depending on getting accepted, getting approved for the loan I’ll need, etc.). Why now?
I’m always striving to learn. When it comes to the day job, my career in libraries, it’s not enough to learn. At some point you also need to have a Master of Information and Library Science degree. Or Master of Library Science degree. I’ve done well with my career for over twenty years but I have just as many years ahead of me — before retirement — as I’ve already worked. I’m going to want options and the MLIS degree will give me that opportunity. I’ve got to earn the degree first.
Nothing is guaranteed. Jobs end and self-employed writers have career crashes as well. No one is immune. I plan to do well in all of my careers. That’s the plan. I’ve put a huge focus on my writing and art for a long time and I have no intentions on giving up working at my goals in those areas. I am shifting my focus right now to pursue this degree. It will impact how much writing and art I’m able to do. It already has since I made the decision. Titles I thought I’d have out haven’t been released because I’ve been focusing on other things. That’s not to say I haven’t worked on them, it’s just going to take longer than originally planned.
The next couple years will be fun!
I worked on the self-portrait more this morning. It’s coming along, using Mischief.
Worked on yet another self-portrait this morning. I think I’ll continue to develop this one, done in Mischief.
