That picture is actually a photograph of a photocopy of a pen/ink drawing. By pen/ink, I mean it was an inky pen that I drew with and then wet with some water to make it more 'inky smudgy' like. I recall that the original paper is kind of crinkly because of the water I dabbed onto it. It's one of many pictures I copied from a photograph originally, so I can't claim all the credit. Still, I like it! And I am using it for this year's NaNoWriMo profile picture.
Yep, I'm all ready for NaNo this year!! I can't wait! I'm writing two novels, or at least I'm spending 15 days on one, and 15 days on the other. It's going to be tough, because sometimes with NaNo I finish my 50k and then get to slack off. This year, I won't be able to slack off for the entire month! Unless I make 50k on each novel really quickly. But no, even then I won't be able to slack off till I reach 50k on my second novel.
Today is head cutty cutty day, so wish me luck! Naturally by that I don't mean I'm getting my head cut off - wouldn't be much point in asking you to wish me luck with that, would there? Speaking of that, I have always maintained that if the time should ever come that I should need a face transplant, I'd ask to be put out of my misery instead. Naturally I can't really say what I'd do until I'm in that situation (which hopefully I never will be!), but at this stage I just think I would too gross having someone's dead face on my head. Same with any exterior limb, I think. Weird that having an organ transplant isn't nearly as gross to me.
What about you? Would you get a face transplant if you lost your own face?
