Another Day, Another … €100 or so?

Day 86. 54 pages, 22,853 words.

My arbitrary Day 100 deadline approaches, I’m slowly getting places with this story but for at least the next couple of weeks I am operating under the handicaps of a) being busy at work, b) having no computer, c) being on full-time family duty when I might otherwise write on my phone, on account of my parents being here.

Still, no complaints. I only feel bad because Mrs. Hatboy has to deal with them all day, as well as dealing with the girls, while I’m at work. I also feel bad because I should set aside overtime and days off and no-write time for Mrs. Hatboy and the girls more … but I like to tell myself I do that. Oh well.

Only one more day of work left this week, then it’s off to Sweden. You can reasonably expect another flatline and a bunch of empty posts just to keep my count (or lack thereof) going. My “summer holiday” this year is basically the Juhannus weekend and that’s about it.

Looking forward to the trip, though. And Wump and Toop are delighted to have “Tinny and Grandad” over.

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.
