Day 69. 69 pages, 32,792 words.

The following post is brought to you by Hatboy’s Hatstand (Premium).

SORRY! The current PayPal offer is now CLOSED, as I received enough donors for the purposes of the test. Stay tuned for further experiments!

I had to do something amusing on the 69th day of my writing process, when I was at 69 pages. It’s post number 2,089 as far as I can tell so that’s not very exciting or funny, but oh well. Here’s a new thing that my blog can do, aside from those weird ads.

You don’t need to pay me. I’ll probably go on writing stuff for free here anyway, and stuff for practically free on Amazon. But if you ever had a fleeting whimsical desire to see yourself in one of my stories, now’s your chance to take part in an experiment that might result in it happening?

I dunno. It’s the weekend. Let’s move on.

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.
