Hello? Is... is this thing on? The red light means it's on, right? Or do I... I have to push a button, don't I? Well, which one? There's like ten! The black one? They're all black!

I bid you welcome to the profile of none other than the great FanNotANerd: author, musician, biology major, scrollsaw artist, Canadian and all-around great guy! Is there no end to my talents? If there is, it probably inhabits the same indistinct plane as my modesty.

I look at most of my writing as an experiment, and am always glad to get feedback, be it positive or negative. The absolute last thing I want is for you guys to humour me.

I also pre-read for Bronius Maximus, who's kind enough to return the favour. He's recently broken 2000 followers, and seems to be making it his life's work to make me look bad. I like to think it's because some of my awesomeness rubbed off on him, but he's just a legitimately good author, and a hell of a lot more prolific than me.

Now I'm sure you're all wondering: what's this guy's claim to fame? Why should I pay attention to his deluded ramblings? The answer is this: because.

Hey, to be honest, I have no idea what half of you like about me so much. So if you were expecting a more wholesome answer, you're as lost as I am.

Just a little heads-up for all of you: at the end of the month, I'll be leaving for Algonquin Park for two weeks to take part in a field course focusing on the biodiversity of the Canadian Shield. For those two weeks, I'll be completely off the grid. Granted, this won't be that different from my current level of activity, which leads into my second announcement: I'm giving myself a self-imposed deadline. By the end of the month, I will have released something. Might be a oneshot, might be that novel-length thing I've been alluding to. Depends how things go.

Point is, I'm going to publish something to get me out of this rut of inactivity. Possible projects are: something involving fencing (swish swish stab), something involving space (may or may not be heavily inspired by Mass Effect) and a no-dialogue challenge piece that I've been kicking around. Or it might be something completely different. We'll have to see.

If I don't have something released by the end of the month, I encourage you to chastise me to your heart's content.

That is all.

EDIT: Well, that didn't work at all. The last second rush to finish my insect collection for my entomology course kind of ate up all my free time. So... yeah. If it counts, I have a oneshot half done. Might be able to get the other half finished in Algonquin Park.

And this is why you should never set deadlines for yourself.
