I dropped the ball on Wednesday*, so starting my twice weekly posts today. Did you unclutter today? If so, what?

I spent an hour or so sorting the random piles of books in my bedroom. Lots are still there, but I binned 3 conference proceedings and some other booklets, put three books on the 'leaving the house' pile, and moved some others to locations where I can start to work out whether I need them or not (need to compare against what I have).

* I'm hoping to make Wednesday and Sunday posts, because those are days when I'm usually on the computer

I did not get much decluttering done this week - too busy with other things to give it a lot of time.
I did take 5 books and about a weeks worth of newspaper to B2P - I use newspaper in packing.
Three different books came back with me in a little case labeled Hogwarts Library. These showed up in the workroom, and I remembered one of the prison libraries asked for them, so they will go in the big plastic box in the garage awaiting the next book pickup.

I did putter around throwing away little sample-size bottles of hand lotion left from travel, that I somehow thought I would squeeze the last drops out of. They had been sitting around for months. I also threw away a lot of little packets of sample skin treatments that came in catalogs I got in the mail. I clearly was not going to try them, so out they went. It's part of that It Might Come In Handy Some Day that causes a lot of saving of objects for no good reason. I need to apply the same clear out process to my makeup drawer, with stuff I bought but never used much. None of this makes a lot of new space, but at least it helps clear surfaces.

I created [community profile] 10variations for Dreamwidth because it was an old concept from Livejournal that I used to love and many people felt inspired by, and I thought it would be nice to recreate it for a better, safer and cleaner platform like Dreamwidth :3

It's a community where you post a batch of 10 icons each time, made out of the same image but all different (according to a set of themes). It's best if you look at the profile to understand the concept! I hope you will like it and participate, I will participate also :3

adair: stack of books (books)
[personal profile] adair posting in [community profile] unclutter
It's late on Friday, but I said it was a day I could post, so here we go.

I did my big declutter on Monday, moving 22 banker's boxes of books from my garage to another way across town for a book pickup by 3 Illinois prison librarians. 3Rs is a local organization that trys to get books for these libraries - Illinois provides them with NO money, and has not since 2001. I had been collecting books from want lists for about 8 months, and Tuesday was pickup day for them. They all took a good many books, but left plenty as well. My friend whose garage we used will need to get someone to haul them to Books to Prisoners, another organization we take part in, so we can possibly sell them at the fall book sale.

For your interest, fantasy series books are very popular. I managed to collect a complete set of Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time for one library, and got a lot of other books for the others.

I have a pile of books for B2P and 3Rs in one corner of my living room. My next project is to sort these and get them moved either to a big plastic box in my garage or to the B2P sorting room. This last has to be done in stages, since I will carry them on the bus in big cloth bags and I can only do one or two of these at a time. I have a couple of stacks of the first to go assembled, and will carry them off on Tuesday.

Eight Book Minimum: This edition brought to you by Fangirl Happy Hour.

Some of you may know that I do the transcripts for [personal profile] renay and [twitter.com profile] booksmugglers's podcast, Fangirl Happy Hour. This is where it really starts to show up in my reading. It turns out that if I read the books they're gonna be talking about, I know how to spell everyone's names! And don't get spoiled, but no, seriously, being able to spell all of the character names is my favourite thing and makes everything infinitely less stressful, 10/10 would recommend.

... Of course, now [personal profile] renay can use her powers for evil to get me to read all the stuff she's recced to me over the years, but no one tell her that.

OPENING JUNE 15
Welcome to Moray Beach
Maybe you were having an ordinary day, doing ordinary things.
Or, maybe, your day was in fact extraordinary, and you're kind of busy and, really, don't have time for any nonsense.
Unfortunately, all of that is gone.
Welcome to Moray Beach. Welcome to your fresh start.
18+ | multigenre | multifandom


Moray Beach is a game set on a tropical island paradise populated entirely by displaced characters. Through some glitch of time and space, they have ended up here, and here they will stay for as long as the island wills it.

A game for mature and seasoned players, it follows basic tenants of fun, respect, and honesty. Player anonymity is protected without question, and abusive and dramatic behaviour will not be tolerated. The goal is low moderation, high activity, and a place for all of us to just, well, play.

Whether you're looking for serious plot, horror or thriller storylines, or even just slice-of-life hijinks, Moray Beach will accommodate you.

[personal profile] fred_mouse posting in [community profile] unclutter
Before I start on What I Managed Today (spoiler: little), I'm wondering whether a regular post for people to comment on would go somewhat towards getting a little activity in this comm? Daily might be a little challenging as a starting point, but maybe twice weekly (say, Wednesday and Saturday?) to see whether there is much response?

So - what did I declutter today. Mostly, I've been finding rubbish. I've had several deliveries in recent days, and thus there is much packaging. About half of this has gone in the bin, the rest is going to be stashed for possible further use (assuming that there is still space in the 'postal packaging' box; if not it is going in the bin).

I also dealt with one item out of the sewing pile, which doesn't get it out of the house, but at least gets it back into general usage, and out of the general class of items cluttering up my sewing room.

I picked this ebook up from one of the assorted bulk SF/Fantasy 'free ebook' pages, which I *think* took me through to a 'sign up for the author's newsletter to get a free book' site.

I was pleasantly surprised by this book - urban fantasy, set in Karachi, incorporating aspects of Islam and the local supernatural traditions as well as some of the political history of Pakistan. The world building is delightful. The level of detail is possibly obsessive, but useful to me as a foreign reader from a different religious tradition, and gave a really good sense of place. I found the protagonist annoying, but it is a coming of age story for a young man who is the only son of a somewhat wealthy family - it is understandable that he starts as somewhat of a brat. Some of the other characterisation was a bit weak, making it difficult to keep track of some of the secondary characters, and making the villains a little bit bland.

Main complaint is that it ends abruptly, after doing a lot of set up, but without a sense of having resolved anything.

It is listed as a duology, but book 2 is not out.

Tuesday again and time to tackle that something that's a pain, that's been lurking along with your guilty conscience, taunting you for way too long, but you know what? It's going to lose its power over you today, because you're going to stare it in the face and secretly plan and plot to knock it out of existence. Why do we need a plan you might ask? And the reason for the plan is you're going to stop it being too big and scary to think about tackling. Today, you're going to figure out how to break it down into bite-size pieces and you're going to start tackling those bite-size pieces today (or tomorrow depending when it fits because you are supreme ruler of your universe so things happen at your command).

The thing is you don't have to get it all done today, but as soon as you've tackled one bite-size chunk, you'll find its power over you, the fear it instills in you begins to diminish. Little by little you can win, so what will it be? How are you going to make a difference in your own life?

Good luck, good strength and CHEERS to success! *\0/*
