Long night, got some stuff done – editing, lots of notes, and I may or may not have wasted some time watching YouTube – but not quite ready to start a word / day count for Greyblade. Off to work, bunch to do, then delivering my last editors’ manuscript to … let’s not be coy, it’s dreameling. I’m reasonably sure BRKN has finished already.
Still, hope it hits the spot.
Nothing to add for today. Not even any social justice outrages or hilarious sharebait. What’s the world coming to?
I read that Colonel Hapablap died. That’s sad news. Apparently he really was a Marine. The more you know.

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?
