Interlude: Busy Week

Stand by for more excuses and whining. Nah, nothing much going on for the moment. Very busy at work, no chance to write more Creepy and Hatboy right now, and still waiting for my stupid editors’ drafts (the drafts are … Continue reading

Another Tuesday of Ugh (+Metrics)

Back at work after four-day weekend. A very enjoyable four-day weekend, to be sure … but man, it could have been a ten-day weekend. That would have been better. Not a lot to report. I’ve gotten a surprisingly large pile … Continue reading

The First Feast, Part 29

Day 63. 208 pages, 103,022 words. Post #998. The question of whether they should leave their sacred warehouse unguarded, Massington thought, was one the humans and Ogres took surprisingly lightly. “Yea, we have a […],” Adithol explained with a careless … Continue reading

The First Feast, Part 28

Day 31. 98 pages, 47,037 words. Once tempers were settled and displeasures soothed, the little brotherhood of the secret junk-filled warehouse returned to amicability and even managed to chuckle a bit more at the whole regrettable incident. Superstition, Adithol Wren … Continue reading
