Happy New Year! · 5:00am January 1st

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.

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.

Midnight Castle Update (Sorry!) · 2:17am Oct 28th, 2020

I think I have a complexity addiction or a work addiction or something.

Trouble at Midnight Castle has not updated since July and that's a big mea culpa; the reason is that I was focused on another project that I and a number of other talented authors on this site are working on and I wanted to finish the first story for that. Took longer than expected as we were ironing out setting, plot, and characterization details for the past few months.
