It is a measure of this week that I wrote that out originally as ‘December.’
Getting that short story out was like pulling teeth. I mean, it’s been in my damn hard drive for years. I just needed enough spite and aggravation to finally finish it.
- Short Story: Walk Away. Because “Thus Do I Refute Omelas” as a title was possibly just a little too on the nose. I knew going in that you’re not supposed to write polemics, only I decided that I just didn’t give a damn.
- RPG Material: Hex Nation, Part 3b: Shattered Mexico. I actually didn’t consider the balance there until I sat down to write it, but I think it works fairly well.
Onward to December!
I might be able to get the short story done tomorrow, and hopefully I will by Wednesday. Then I can go over it again, tighten it up, and get it out by the end of the month. Fair warning: there may be a little spleen involved. I have been in a mood, and this may lance some of it.
Huzzah. NaNoWriMo starts tomorrow, so expect a bunch of updates on Patreon next month.
In the veritable nick of time, but that’s okay.
This was a month where I had to pick myself up by the scruff this weekend and stop messing around. Moral of the story: Fallout 4 is for people who don’t have novels to finish. Anyway!
Stuff I just make up stuff about: science fiction, and warfare!
- Short Story: Tour Of Duty. It’s amazing what people get used to. Set in the same universe as the upcoming novel GHOSTS ON AN ALIEN WIND.
- RPG Entry: Ashes of Empire, Part 6b: The Overthrow War. The next entry will probably be the last one. This one looks at the broad details of the war, because the war itself would make for a better wargame.
