Profile Information

Introduction
Hello, and welcome.

I am an aspiring: writer, inventor, smith, draftsman/proto-engineer, Furry and all around Maker.

I am in the possess of writing my first book, as well as building a new work shop and starting an R&D firm. I have also been running with the idea of starting a YouTube channel focused on making both contemporary and historically inspired things. Though that is currently on the back burner, as I am still building the felicities to make ANYTHING at the moment.

Many of my friends refer to me as "Professor" though I do not currently hold such a position. I have been rather taken with the nickname, though. I've included it as part of the name of my (fur)sona, "Prof. Coppersmith".

Wow, it has been way too long since I've done anything on here. 

To anyone who is still following me/ friends with me on here, I'm sorry I disappeared for so long.  

But I'm back!  And I will try to keep up with things more from here on out.

Well, things are happening.  I'm getting my office built, and just posted the first chapter of my book for critique on a writing group I'm in.  While being about half way through the fourth.

Unfortunately, the second of my last two days off were terrible.

Never really did any kind of regular blogging before.  So here's my attempt!

For some reason, I can never seem to just work on one thing at a time.  It always has to be at least two or three projects at once.  Case in point; my life right now.  

I have about three major projects running right now, four if you count one that's mostly clerical work right now.  Each of which is comprised of numerous smaller projects.  Further all of these current projects will, of course,…

Armor, Jewelry, and Horses

Hello All!I've been working on a short story for a contest on WdC while taking a break from my main story.  It's still in the same world and with two of the same characters, though a much earlier, and smaller event in the timeline.Anywho, one of my characters is a horse.  I was discerning an outfit she was wearing, which includes a pair of decorative silver leg & hoof covers.  As I came to this, it occurred to me that I didn't know the proper term for such a piece of jewelry for an equine.…See More
