I’m afraid today’s Free Fiction is getting postponed.

The shuffling of matters at the dayjob have thrown certain things for a loop and I’m struggling to catch up. I’m also still getting settled into the new OS install at home, and contemplating a scrub of the laptop (it’s a long story). I do have some ideas for upcoming Free Fiction entry, which may eventually yeild an anthology, since I’m going to be sticking with the re-telling of myths.

This next one’s turning out pretty well and I want to take my time with it. So, right around Valentine’s Day, you’ll be getting a double helping of Free Fiction with a longer-than-usual tale, tentatively entitled “Miss Weaver’s Lo Mein.”

It’ll make sense in context.

I also want to get some work for Amaranthine done, hopefully before the Machine Age crew head out to California. This new project of theirs has all of the originality and edginess of Maschine Zeit with some really interesting backstory thrown in, and I’m eager to be a part of it.

Queries are rolling around in peoples Inboxes and some should be rolling back to me soon. Probably in the form of a rejection. But that’s the way of things. More queries will be going out as soon as I can compile a fresh list of agent names.

And the outline for a new novel is taking shape. Slowly. A braindump will be coming soon.

Still not sure what sort of video editing software I’ll be able to use, but folks seem to continue enjoying IT CAME FROM NETFLIX! in its current form for now, so I’m not exactly in a rush to put that on my plate.

On top of all of this is the impending trip to Canada in a few weeks. By the way, I’m still interested in guest posters chiming in during that week. If you have something you want to talk about/discuss/rant on related to writing or gaming, and want a different outlet for it, hit me up.

Finally, with the wintery mix coming down on our heads, tonight’s D&D was postponed, so no Into the Nentir Vale this week. Luckily I set up the final confrontation of the Battle of Albridge before we parted ways last week, so we can start rolling the moment we get settled and I have my beer.

Yes. I drink while I DM.

Don’t you judge me.
