A Case of the Mon- Wait…

Day 109. 94 pages, 41,546 words.

Heh, hold on, it’s Thursday.

Today’s blog post was proudly brought to you by the Engineers of planet Earth, and the wonderful things they say.

I didn’t say it was a good blog post.

Going to try for another write night tonight. I did get a nice bit of editing and planning done last night, and today I dumped all the rest of my Part 3 notes into the working file and began assembling it into the final part of this giant damn book that Bad Cow has apparently decided to be … but still feel I have to kick this story in the head, or the butt, before too much longer. I mean, it’s been 109 days! That’s just not right, for a book of any size.


Anyway, I ultimately have a page limit. The paperback at least can only be 828 pages long before CreateSpace can’t bind it, and I will just have to find a traditional publisher. Heh.

Don’t worry though, I don’t think this one’s going to break 700.

750 max.

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/
