What’s New, November 27th, 2019

Hi y’all.

Not a lot going on, busy at work and only able to post up some remastered oldies and the occasional copy-pasted rant.

Work’s going well – lots to do, but chipping away at it. Still uncertain what the new year will hold but hopefully there will be more for me to do at my current customer site. Oh, we might be going on strike in a bit, which could be interesting. If you can’t guillotine ’em, unionising is the next best thing.

Writing is … well, let’s put it this way. I sort of puffballed out into a half-dozen different side-projects after Panda Egg was released, and really just need to force myself to stick pins in a bunch of them until I get The Last Days of Earth out of the way. Unfortunately, some of these projects (maybe all of them) are feeding into The Last Days of Earth and making it, in theory, easier to write. Only not, because I can’t write it because I’m writing other shit.

Speaking of Panda Egg, I’ve entered it in a funky Amazon Indonesia (yeah you heard me) #pentopublish2019 contest that offered me prize money and the chance to get my story made into an Amazon Prime Video. Given that Indonesia has fielded a strong 140+ Amazon pages of entries (who knew Indonesia had a ton of people living in it?), I’m in with approximately 0% chance of winning anything, but that never stopped me before.

So that’s it for current events. Review my books.

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/
