Just so you know…

…I’m about 30 pages into the first short story of Anthology 2. It’s been slow going and I’m not ready to provide a day counter for this one since I’m doing a lot of different things at once, but sooner or later I’ll get back into the swing of things.

And then, onwards to Oræl Rides To War 2: Greyblade!

Part of the reason I’m a bit hesitant to offer proper count-ups for Anthology 2 is that I’ve semi-to-mostly-completed at least two of the other stories that are going into it, and I don’t want to say “they’re done, just need editing”. Because I have no idea how much editing they will need, or how much time I am going to have before January to write anything, what with work and domestic life and the whole Australian odyssey coming up.

So that’s where we’re at.


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/
