I finished editing today, and I have seven illustrations left to draw before I’m ready to go to print with the proof copies.
Hopefully it’ll be a fun read.
More news as comes to light, and as I promised I will scan and post some pics when I get a chance. This is just a teaser. I mean, given that I already posted some of the actual stories I guess a teaser is redundant but oh well.
In other news, my fucking God is the new block editor for WordPress a pain in the balls and I hate it. And they seem to be adding more and more steps to enable me to go back to the “classic” editor too. Why can’t UI designers just fucking stop? I know they need to get paid, but can we maybe pay them to not update our shit once it’s fine?
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?

ooooohhhhhh! Can’t wait!
It’s a scripttease
Yay! Sorry about the WordPress editor…is the new format really so awful that you can’t roll with it?
Can’t wait to read your new writing, as always!
Thanks bro. Yeah, it’s alright (and has a lot of interesting bells and whistles I might add), but just for writing and adding pics, I prefer the old editor. And writing and adding pics is basically all I do!
I am ridiculously excited about this.
One and a half drawings left to create!
