Not dead yet, but not writing either · 1:36am September 25th

So this is a blog post I should have done a while ago and I'm sorry for not saying something sooner. As it turns out, the final year of getting my doctorate is the most time-consuming thing I've ever done in my life. Between a full 40 hours a week fulfilling school requirements, having a part-time job on the side to continue living and maintaining the bare minimum of social interaction with friends and family, I have had little time to write. Y'all probably noticed that my writing has slowed

An Offer You'll Hopefully Accept · 3:52pm April 22nd

So, a mere three weeks later (damn my busy schedule) I'm finally responding to the reactions to 'An Offer She Can't Excuse". I have to admit when the comments first started to pour in I was very surprised to find quite a few people disliking the ending. It took a couple of read-throughs of the chapter and some deep thought before I realized what had gone wrong. The problems were two-fold, or perhaps one fed into the other. The main problem being that I lost the ridiculous, absurdist tone that

Exciting Happenings! · 1:24pm March 16th

So, it's been nearly a year since my last blog post. Giving you guys another update seems about right.

The Fool of April and three for three. · 11:47am Apr 2nd, 2016

First off, the latest Dresden Fillies chapter was the actual chapter, except for the last two paragraphs.

Secondly, I'd like to thank everyone who gave me the immense credit of introducing a truly devious plot twist rather than assuming I had completely gone off the rails.

New Chapter and a Contest. · 5:57pm Feb 25th, 2016

Just finished and published a new chapter of 'Firefly: The Long Job' and I'm feeling good about my resolution to do one chapter per month. The next Dresden Fillies chapter is well into the planning stages and should be out in March.

If you enjoy the Dresden Files RPG or resolutions this is the place for you. · 6:58pm Jan 6th, 2016

This year I've decided that my New Year's resolution is to publish at least one chapter of a story (Gregor McAwesome doesn't count) each month of 2016. Last year was the first time I ever set a serious resolution for myself and I managed to met it, so I'd like to see if I can have as much success in my second as I did with my first. And speaking of Gregor, well, I think we have enough data to agree that that experiment was not a success. I'll probably still update it every now and again when

I'm not dead yet. I don't want to go on the cart. · 1:23pm Dec 15th, 2015

So, over the past month and a half real life decided to hammer me like a pile driver. And when my free time went out of the window I could only spare so much sleep, thus the silence on my stories. However, things are on a more even keel now. I'm already 2,000 words into the next Dresden chapter and I have high hopes that it will be done before Christmas.

So, this is really just a note to let you guys know that I haven't abandoned you yet. Merry Christmas you crazy so-and-so's

I've got an idea that might speed up my writing, but I need your input. · 1:25am Oct 18th, 2015

New chapter of my Firefly series is up, but otherwise ol' psychic hasn't done much these past couple of months. Part of that is because I am legitimately busy in real life, and part of that is how many wonderful distractions manage to catch my interest. On an unrelated note the new Brandon Sanderson book is fantastic.

'The Dresden Fillies' lives and 'Gregor McAwesome' has been returned to the pit that spawned it. · 3:36pm Apr 4th, 2015

So, as was blatantly obvious the previous post was an April Fool's joke. Amusingly enough I actually hadn't intended to do anything this year, but I was leafing through my odds and ends folder and discovered 'Gregor McAwesome' which I had penned just for fun a year or so ago when I was facing a block while writing a chapter of False Masks. The idea then hatched in my mind and with a half hour's work I cleaned it up, wrote the intro and published.

'The Dresden Fillies' are dead. Long live my new story: 'Gregor McAwesome' · 7:42pm Apr 1st, 2015

So as my long hiatus might have lead you to guess I am quitting work on The Dresden Fillies entirely. Stephanie Meyer has graciously agreed to rework/finish them for me. You can expect her version of 'Strange Friends' now called 'Forgotten Minotaur Lovers' to debut in bookstores on this date next year. It will be a sweeping re-imagining of my original story with Harry Dresden (replaced by Iron Will), Twilight (replaced by one of Rarity's mannequins), and Trixie (replaced by Danny DeVito) caught
