I'm (still) not quite dead... · 4:35am Dec 3rd, 2021

I'm sorry, I am so very sorry for the lack of updates on, well, anything. A few of you have probably noticed that I've still been putting in the occasional appearance or comment, but as for chapter updates...yeah I've barely written anything for months for various reasons - work sucks, arranging a couple vacations, a falling out in my D&D group of 14 years, and just a sort of malaise that I've been in. Blah blah blah, excuses excuses.

When you're writing a chapter... · 3:46am Feb 26th, 2021

And listening to music to keep yourself in the mood, and then you hear a song that has you suddenly realize that you've been writing the entire chapter wrong and should have instead been basing it around the song - not necessarily using the song directly (especially since that would be against site rules concerning wholesale copying of lyrics), but certainly drawing on it for inspiration.

The Good News and the Bad News · 12:59am Jan 28th, 2021

The good news is that I got a root canal on Monday. No more pain in teeth. Yay!

The bad news is that I was 3/4ths of the way through the next chapter of Midnight Castle (~5000 words) and realized that I was writing it totally wrong. I need to go back to practically the start and change up a lot, though I'm salvaging lines and paragraphs wherever I can.

Happy New Year! · 5:00am Jan 1st, 2021

And so the year finally ends. I've watched its final seconds tick away with a kind of grim satisfaction. This year has been just plain awful around the world and we've all lost something to it. In my case, it was my cat Puck. Watching 2020 end, watching the clock run out, has been a kind of catharsis. Not as good as getting Puck back, but...well, something.

AND THEN MY DENTIST GOT COVID · 1:06am Dec 23rd, 2020

The night before I had scheduled an appointment to get a damn tooth out of my mouth that's killing me. I am five seconds away from just downing a sufficient number of shots of tequila and dealing with the damn thing myself.

I have no luck at all.

Fuck 2020.

Needless to say Midnight Castle is delayed again until I can think about something other than the sharp driving pain in my lower jaw.

Resuming writing Midnight Castle · 11:32pm Dec 10th, 2020

Happy Thanksgiving! · 11:20pm Nov 26th, 2020

For all my fellow US residents. And non-US residents, I guess, happy Turkey Day anyway. In celebration, I present the one and only Thanksgiving song that needs to exist (sure, there are some others, but...come on), plus full lyrics so that you can follow along. That's right, full lyrics for the full twenty minute song. I'm not proud.

I think I’ve aged more over the past four days than I have over the past thirty-three years. But thank God, we can say the title of this blog post with as much certainty that we can say anything in these trying times.
