Postcard #123: "Insomnia"

Sent via postcrossing to shi003465.  She said she liked birds.
I have had the original draft of this postcard for a while.  At least as early as postcard #25 definitely before I joined post-crossing.  I had rewritten it a few times.  I still don't know if I like this draft. I am amazed how much its has changed from my first draft.  Changing POV's.  Length.  Verbage.  I think I even had a draft where I had someone screaming at the bird.   Originally I was going to send it to my brother.

Postcard #122: "13th hour"

Sent via postcrossing to paisdasmaravilhas who specifically said she wanted cards of Chicago.  I then tried to put a storycube story on the back of it.  At the suggestion of Sam...she suggested that I roll the number dice and then chose dice according to what I roll.  I admittedly liked the idea.  It presented a new challenge.  It hatched a story idea...and then I failed.  Failed pretty hard.  Barely got all the dice in.  I barely got all the story on the card.  I rushed what was actually there.  A poor attempt and I got nearly two drafts of this story done prior to writing the card.  DIFFERENT DRAFTS each time.  Seeing how I wasn't getting anywhere.  I just started writing and two of those dice really fucked my shit up.  The microscope and the alien face.  I might have been able to make pretty solid story if it wasn't for those damn dice.  I need to go back to the drawing board for my story cube game.  Not sure how.  Maybe two number dice.  One die to chose they style of play and the other to chose how many dice from the pool will be chosen.

Postcard #121: "Kenny Baker 1934-2016"

Sent via postcrossing to AriaNNa060296 who apparently doesn't want anything.  Her profile is completely blank.  Hope this will suffice.

Postcard #120: "Stages"

Sent via Postcrossing to morier who did not specify what she wanted.  But she did mention she was a psychotherapist so I figured I would get some therapy plus I had this card.  Which is perfect.

Postcard #119: "I looked up..."

Sent via postcrossing to TX1997 who wanted Alice in Wonderland.  I did not have much of that.  But I did have this card I found in Seattle a few years ago.  With a little editing I turned it into a postcard.  She also said she did not want to read "Happy Postcrossing!" Which I can totally relate...

Postcard #117: "Margins"

Sent via postcrossing to Petrunin.  She wanted sentences in my language.  Perhaps some of them are Spanish but I figured that was okay.  She also wanted a picture of my city in the day or the I got evening card.

Postcard #115: "Mission"

Sent via postcrossing to houchino. She lives in Michigan.  She wanted vintage.  This postcard is old enough to be vintage by Portland standards.  I figured I would send her a postcard of a place that looks warm...even though the people look bundled up.
