    I'm learning to hate the word "except" right now.

    The cardiologist says my tests came back normal- no clots, no heart swelling, full clear flow, strong pumping, nothing abnormal... except.

    No chapter of Maretian tonight...

    ... due to serious computer issues. Signs point to the swap partition on my desktop being borked.

    Will try to write tomorrow, but it's been a long day here.

    The testing

    My last twenty-four hours.

    Drink too much liquid yesterday as a substitute for food because I wasn't allowed caffeine within 24 hours of the stress test, including chocolate, and my headache made me feel like not cooking fresh, which left me only TV dinners with chocolate in.

    Tried to get to bed early. Failed. Repeatedly. Slept terrible all night, including getting up twice to pee.

    Update on the heart thing...

    ... this morning I got a phone call from the cardiology clinic where I'm due to have a stress test with ultrasound.

    My insurance covers 70% of the procedure... which leaves me with $603 to pay. In advance.

    That's half a month's bills. Hell, that's my total profit from an average (for me) convention.

    Voice actor wanted...

    ... one of my readers intends to do dramatization of certain parts of The Maretian, particularly the "Home" song.

    Right now he needs a singing voice for Spitfire:


    Any readers who can reasonably pass for Spitfire and carry a tune at the same time, if you want to help, let him know.

KoFi is live. · 3:31am January 22nd

Thanks to all of you who are enjoying The Maretian! I have a small buffer built up, and I'm going to try to write something every day to keep up the daily posts. But it's time to get back on the convention circuit...

Although (at least for the time being) I hope you'll make monthly pledges via Patreon that I can budget around, I now have a KoFi for one-time tips.


Obviously I also have a PayPal, so if you want to tip but don't want to go through Ko-Fi, I'll message it to you.

I have The Maretian in my "read asap" bookshelf, but am following you because of Changeling Space Program. Ooo! Did I get first on your Ko-Fi? :twilightsmile:

4779075 Well... somebody did, anyway.

I got my first convention as a vendor in 3 weeks... Well I see myself as an assistant but everyone always insists I'm doing more work than I really am when it comes to convention related things.
