People have asked me, as they do every year, to put together a list of what I had published last year that could qualify for a Hugo nomination. I don’t normally get my act together enough to do this, but a combination of elements, including 1. Worldcon is…

new blog post: Take A Chance thoughts / Patreon signal boost / #comics #writing #shamelessselfpromotion

I’ve been having a think, and here’s what I’ve been thinking. I’ve got an artist for the next TAKE A CHANCE story arc. I need to be able to pay him, tho. If I can get my Patreon up to 250 patrons, at the average of $5/m that people are paying, I could…

new blog post: Fancy Gym: Day One / honestly that didn't go well / #crankypants

Well, my first personal trainer workout at the #fancygym this morning went really poorly. I arrived slightly early and the PT was 15 minutes late. Furthermore, I’m pretty sure he was only 15 minutes late because I asked more than once about where he…

new blog post: Picoreview: Aquaman

Aquaman Picoreview: Someone said it was your average Marvel Phase One introductory superhero movie. I don’t think it was as good as any of the Phase One films, which were all tight in terms of storyline, but it was better than I expected. Granted, my…

new blog post: asthma?!

SO APPARENTLY I HAVE ASTHMA which seems to be mostly weight-induced and probably explains being unable to breathe well for the past 18 months. I’ve had these kinds of asthmatic problems in the past when I weighed this much, but never really actually…

So I woke up to winning the House, losing the Senate, taking several gubenatorial seats, record-high turnout, 1.4m people with their right to vote restored in Florida, and a WHOLE lot more women in political power than there were yesterday. Guys, this is…

new blog post: Kitsnacks: Maple & Brown Sugar Apple Butter

I revamped my maple apple butter recipe entirely this year and it is Good. A big part of the difference is I was using eating apples, because that’s what I had this time instead of super sour cooking apples, and it takes much less maple and sugar to…

new blog post: gym post: i did the thing!

I…have been complaining bitterly on Twitter, and somewhat less bitterly here, about the buses in Drogheda. To summarize: they suck. They are either late or early and when they’re late it can be “I’ve been standing here in the cold for 70 minutes” late and…

new blog post: January To-Done

January was an excrutiatingly busy month and I don’t actually know how I got this all done, but somehow I did. I: – submitted a manuscript to three publishers – submitted a proposal to a publisher – wrote & delivered an Old Races short story for and…
