In/Exhale - Returning Soon

Hey, everyone! I hope you all have been well. I've missed you all, but I've been working hard on I/E while I've been on break--I'll admit Kai kept pulling me away from my NaNo project--and I should hopefully start posting again next week.

Season 2 will feature a lot more ASL than Season 1, so I wrote up this little guide you can read about how I plan to represent it in the upcoming episodes:

On Writing ASL


Another new thing I'm going to try this season is (as scary as it is!) videos of me signing short ASL lessons demonstrating some of the signs used in each episode.

I'm not an expert on video-making, so I'm not promising anything snazzy or super professional just yet, but that way it'll give you a chance to learn some signs and maybe get a better feel for the beautiful visual language my prose can't ever truly do justice to.

I have a significant chunk of Season 2 finished (or as you'd say in ASL, "fish," with your hands together, then spreading outward), but haven't had a chance to make the videos yet. I may go ahead and start posting next week (as I'm getting impatient!) even if the videos aren't ready.

Thanks everyone, and I'll see you all soon!
