I’m dispensing with the Interludes for now, I’ll get back to the Creepy & Hatboy story when I have the time and opportunity. Also, I’ve sort of reached a point where I can write another part or two, but then I need to wait to figure out where the story is heading. I don’t want to spoil it by just writing down anything.

Nothing much to report today. One day back at work and then a day off for Vappu, making this a sort of one-day week, a one-day weekend, then a three-day week. Followed by our little book release party for The First Feast. Not that it’s going to be out at the end of this week … but at least one set of editorial comments is in and I will be getting underway with the editing.

And my little Tabo Norid is looking awesome, and he hasn’t even got his coat yet. I’m really not inclined to part with him as a bar prize … but like Mrs. Hatboy says, he’s a prototype. We can make a better one, and keep him.

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.
