Silver Linings Come In All Shapes & Sizes…

This morning I was at Builders Brewery standing on a pose stand trying to figure out what clothes I could wear with my Slink body. So i see this message from 7 Deadly s{K}ins about a blogger pack sent to the actual group.  I click on it, open it and I was like, “Wow!  this was really not meant for me.” but at the same instance, i got curious about the skins as I had only really tried on demos and looked for a hunt gift (which I couldn’t find by the way) and decided to put the skin on, use the included appliers on my Slink body and check it out.  The skin is excellent quality and the body detailing is magnificent.  This weekend, the Liam skin, which is what I’m wearing is on  special promo soon.  If you are lucky like I was to get the notice, then good on you!  Otherwise head on down to 7 Deadly S{k}ins and check out the men’s and women’s selection.  Well made skins for sure!

Photography…

So besides standing around in SL, lately I have been expanding my horizons and learning the ins and outs of SL Photography.  The Flickr community for SL is massive and there are a lot different folks taking pictures of their virtual selves. I’ve met a few photographers, and they are passionate about their work and the work of others.

One of the photographers I’ve met, Cenedra Ashbourne has become a good friend.  I’ve been hanging out with her a lot in SL and I’ve managed to take a couple pictures of her.  My favourite is my most recent pic done of her.  I’m learning and enjoying this new hobby. 

So apparently I am MoonStalker.. or whoever…

So today I’m standing around in SL.  Something I do as it is of course.  I tend to go to places where there are people, read people’s profiles.  Ballrooms in SL are always filled with people so I put on my suit and start reading people’s profiles when I come across a well written exposé on the types of Men in SL… from a woman’s point of view.  So I strike up a conversation with her.  Things are going well then things start to take a turn for the worse.

(paraphased and protected for length, but you get the gist)
Her: What do you do for a living?
Me: I work as a professional writer.
Her:  Oh so what do you write?
Me: I write Fantasy Fiction.
Her: Oh so like Harry Potter type things?
Me: No I’m more of a classical fantasy, modern fantasy kind of writer.
(and here comes the kicker)
Her: Give me a title so I can look you up
So I give her the working title of one of my current projects.  Which she then proceeds to try and look me up on Google.
Her: Well you’re not this guy, it’s the wrong genre.
Me: I gave you a working title.  Not a current title.  But I work with the Ed Greenwood Group
Her: Oh so you’re Moonstalker then?  Must be.. I found such and such related to what you said.

Now, I understand curiosity and that what I do for a living is out there for the world to see, but really how would they have liked for me to look up their real life name?  Have access to their biography and where they may live?  I’m pretty careful about that information, and her approach really bothered me.

So.. to set the record straight.  I’m not Moonrunner, Moonstalker or anything like that.  Who I am in SL is Ty Winters.  Who I am outside of SL isn’t public knowledge.
