Woo hoo (Monday)

So my Book 8 editors’ copies have arrived. I guess I need to hurry home before Mrs. Hatboy or Mr. BRKN break into the post package and start reading.

I have to add the Notes to the Editors anyway – I failed to put them in the actual manuscript so I have them printed out and need to fold, spoiler-seal, and stuff them in the back page. Low tech all the way.

Been watching Game of Thrones season 5 with my mum and dad while they’re visiting. It’s been fun. I don’t know if they’re actually starting to get it, or if they’ve just lost all hope and have given up on trying to follow the plot at all and are just now sitting through each episode for a glimpse of a dragon or a quip from Tyrion. Actually, I’m pretty sure that’s what’s happened.

Oh well. We may just crack on into season 6 if Mr. BRKN is as gloriously successful as we all hope, with his technological wizardry.

And it’s only Monday!

About Hatboy

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? I am Hatboy. https://hatboy.blog/2013/12/17/metalude-who-are-creepy-and-hatboy/

    I was going to say, Mrs. Hatboy had already started her copy when I arrived, and was debating the moral issues behind handing me my copy when we received word you were finally on your way.

      About all I can say at this point is that I evidently have profoundly amoral family and friends, who ultimately make the right decisions.

      Also, it’s very flattering how eager you were to start reading the book. So my ego and I will be fine.
