Tuaprit (no, I meant tuaprit, it’s an in-joke)

Day 47. 63 pages, 31,090 words. Really nice progress but I’m assuming the regular weekend flatline at this point.

Nothing to report. Off to a mini-housewarming tonight, where there will allegedly be some high-quality pizza and with any luck some low-brow Cards Against Humanity.

I’m thinking, given the relative size and complexity of this up-coming book, that I will see how things go. As long as I don’t stall, I think it’s going well but I would still like to get it done in 100 days or fewer. I’m hoping that I will be ready to publish by the end of July. Let’s wait and see.

Can’t wait to get started on the next one already. Phase Two is fun. I just hope there’s not too much exposition in this one … well, I guess that’ll be for my editors to decide.

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/
