The April Update. · 10:34am Last Friday

A few days ago I completed the proper first draft of chapter 11 of The Seven Trials of Clover the Clever! Which means that for every month this year I've hit a "Complete some sort of draft thing by the middle of the month" productivity milestone. In January it was the last chapter of The Crown of Night, then Seven Trials chapter 10, then two drafts of chapter 11.

Progress Update, Hearts and Hooves Day Edition · 8:01pm February 14th

It's been so long since I blogged, I should just do it and break the hesitance barrier.

So. Quite a time we're having, isn't it? Happy Hearts and Hooves Day!

I managed to finish another chapter of The Crown of Night, it went up a month ago and I didn't blog about it then so here's the mention. Progress on the marathon!

A question · 3:19pm January 5th

Why is the chapter three chapters away always so much more interesting than the chapter I'm supposed to be writing right now?

I have finished the first draft of chapter 9 of The Seven Trials of Clover the Clever! I managed to get it in before the end of the month, which was my big goal. It came in at a hefty 19k words, just 500 words short of the longest chapter so far, and that puts the whole story now at 80k words.

Been a while since I did one of these. Not gonna lie, it’s been a rough summer for creative work. And now that I sit down to write it everything I put in it seems very… apologetic, for some reason. You know, “I’m still here, sorry this is taking forever”, etcetera. I don’t like that.

A blog about that Atlantic business, fandom, and politics. · 8:15pm Jul 7th, 2020

So, in light of a certain article that a certain paper recently printed that’s been going the rounds and drawing a lot of comment for… understandable reasons, I felt like trying to put my thoughts together. That was weeks ago. It took me that long. And since this is such a large and unwieldy topic I hardly know where to start.

Well. Let’s start at the beginning.

Yes, Really. · 6:42pm Jun 21st, 2020

One of those vague undercurrents just got a lot less vague. And there's more coming. I just have to move the text over with all the formatting, and the next chapter of The Crown of Night will at last be published for everyone to see.

To those of you still around: Thanks for sticking with me.

...And the new chapter is up.
