A troubling modern trend is complex issues being boiled down to pithy quotes. Nuance matters. Context matters. Problems that have a simple and easy fixes don't stay problems.

Nevertheless, sometimes the pithy quote is on point. This is one such time.

Signal boost · 3:30am Jan 1st, 2018

I doubt I can add much boost, but Horizon's blog post on sexual assault bears maximum repetition. For the good of the fandom, or at the very least in the name of being a decent person, check it out if you haven't already.

Also, as to the state of the author, I continue to be not dead. I'm back in the US from Japan, and some writing is happening, though it's a struggle to regain my stride.

I continue to not be dead. :yay:
Still job hunting, though. :fluttershysad:

Words continue to happen, occasionally in the writeoffs, but mostly on the novel I've mentioned. I'm now about halfway through the first draft, and it's full steam ahead.

See you all on the other side (or if I get a really cool pony fic out of the writeoffs).

Interview! · 5:38am Apr 10th, 2016

Hey folks, still not dead. I actually just finished an interview with SirNotAppearingInThisFic, which you can find here. Some great questions, and hopefully my answers are equally interesting. So go hit it up if you want to see me talk about writing, rockets, and stuff I've been working on.

Enjoy!

Life, words, and odd thoughts · 9:18am Dec 3rd, 2015

Thanks everyone for the wonderful response to 'The Floor is Lava.' I'm gratified to see that most readers seem to enjoy it, and the comments have been particularly encouraging. :pinkiesmile:

I'm sorry to have not responded to as many comments as deserve it. Rest assured that I've read them all (usually multiple times) and appreciate you taking the time to share your thoughts.

Chapter 8 · 12:00pm Jan 7th, 2015

Finally off to the pre-readers, so hopefully it won't be much longer before it's ready. It's shorter than the last few chapters, but that's the way it works out sometimes.

Life continues apace, though my job hasn't been so much fun lately. I did get to meet Cold in Gardez recently, though - that was pretty cool. On his advice, I may be taking a shot at some of the writeoffs.

Chapter 7 is nearly done · 1:06pm Oct 7th, 2014

Huh, I guess it's about that time again. By rights, I should've had it done a while ago, but reasons. Also, Kerbal space program. Anyhow, consider yourself notified of impending chapter, and now I'll look silly if I don't deliver in a few days. With any luck, I'll have the chapter up before SQUAD releases the .25 update (mmm, delicious spaceplanes).

Down another leg of the trousers of time · 1:10pm Jun 1st, 2014

I suppose it's just as well that I never specified the 'later' in my 'later blog post.' For whatever reason, it always ended up more compelling to work on chapter 6 than to polish this old fragment up. Still, 'tis now polished, and some folks may be interested.
