Still Day 60. Still no writing done.
Oh, but on the lighter side. Some mad fool nominated Eejit for a Hugo Award, so that’s something out of the wreckage.
Thanks for the nomination, masked stranger.
Worldcon Finland 2017!
I’m not often driven to introspection or reflection, but the question does come up sometimes. The big question. So big, there’s just no containing it within the puny boundaries of a single set of punctuationary bookends.
Who are these mysterious and unsung heroes of obscurity and shadow? What is their origin story? Do they have a prequel trilogy? What are their secret identities? What are their public identities, for that matter? What are their powers? Their abilities? Their haunted pasts and troubled futures? Their modus operandi? Where do they live anyway, and when? What do they do for a living? Do they really have these fantastical adventures, or is it a dazzlingly intellectual and overwrought metaphor? Or is it perhaps a smug and post-modern sort of metaphor? Is it a plain stupid metaphor, hedged around with thick wads of plausible deniability, a soap bubble of illusory plot dependent upon readers who don’t dare question it for fear of looking foolish? A flight of fancy, having dozed off in front of the television during an episode of something suitably spaceship-oriented? Do they have a quest, a handler, a mission statement, a department-level development objective in five stages?

Eejit is the best scifi or fantasy novel published last year that I’ve read, so of course it gets Best Novel Hugo 2015. To be fair, though, it’s also the only scifi or fantasy novel published last year that I’ve read, but who’s counting. It was an excellent read!
Wow, you gave yourself an e-mail address and everything.
I’m sure I have no idea what you’re talking about.
Btw., if and when you do win a Hugo, you totally better thank me for your first nomination!
What a dick.
Ruggedly handsome, though.
Can’t argue with that.
I do so love watching a live e-persona budding.
I’m more particular to live deflowerings myself, lol.
I’m a little worried at what a boor my Hugo nominator turned out to be.
Hah! Hear me roar!
No wait, is it boor or boar?
