Long Term Development

Since Murder Dollhouse is currently slated for the late 2030's [subject to change depending on audience anticipation] I'm going to take my sweet time getting the nut notes together.

I think I'll post updates and whatnot to my Wordpress account. Powers know that thing is almost dead.

It's hard to network and I don't know how it's done, and I keep thinking that all I have to do is keep pumping out content and the peeps will come. And because of that I don't have much time for myself to just relax, read, and comment on stuff. Which is what networking's actually about.

So when I have time off, I dive away from the technoscrattle and soak in the stuff that entertains me. As a reward.

So yeah. I'm shooting myself in the foot. My only hope is that the nice peeps I'm actually gaining attention from in AO3 actually decide to support my artistry.

I'm going to have to go shopping, likely sometime after I've done this blog and scheduled my Blasts.

And I have STILL had no word from the last of the three agents I sent shit off to. Putting works I have no business working on live on Wordpress seems like a reasonable strategy. All the behind-the-curtain stuff for the peeps who like to peek behind the curtain.

When I get around to actual chapters, they'll go up on Patreon. But the unanchored scenes will appear on Wordpress.

AND I have to remember that what worked for The Martian may not work for me. At all. I'm just trying this tactic on an idea that's shiny enough to maintain my interest for an extended time. If it gains anyone else's attention, then I can shuffle Murder Dollhouse upwards in my queue.

And in the meantime, I have a long-term project to noodle around with.

Welp

Every avenue I have to share knows about my Patreon. I might have to pop a regular reminder on Twitter, tho. I need to make my lazy arse dial up the agents-in-potentia and work up an order. I might be done with this list by early next year.

Honestly, agent-hunting is the most nerve-wracking part of this for me. No wonder I'm off in fanfic land with the adorable elf. It's way more fun than adhering to one set of arbitrary qualifications

Whups

So I fucked up, yesterday, and didn't post the paragraphs and shortcut to yesterday's fresh story. As far as I'm aware, only ONE of my readers even bothered to point this out.

This site is pretty much me whining about stuff and occasionally pointing at other cool things I've done.

Other things I did not do - work on SESP.

That's right. I farted most of my day away and didn't look at my email or even do much that was productive

3:30 AM

I’m editing One Leap Year of Instants and pondering the nature of the Bechdel Test.

See, I’m also writing Kung Fu Zombies and the very low bar of the Bechdel Test is, for the first time ever, a very hard bar to clear.

Why?

Well… my protagonist and sole POV-holder is a self-absorbed, self-centred, self-important, white male. Age twelvish.

And he doesn’t get his head out of his arse until act three. The last third

Pondering...

I am mulling and mentally milling an SPG fanfic.

Yeah. A daily story, a trilogy to finish [YO! Beta Readers! Get the flip back to me, OK?] and I’m pondering fanfic about a merry band of robot troubadours.

…about Rabbit becoming Bunny.

[AnditmightcontainanOCselfinsertrobotcameo]

…ahem..

Now. Given my past in the Realm of trying to write bad ideas and having them mutate into fantastic ideas… I think this is a bad idea.

Maybe I should leave it percolate

Now the internet is fixed...

I’m not diverting the ponies. They have served their purpose in keeping a nice, long queue for me.

Besides, I’m likely to fill up my queue with Thailand stuff anyway.

Got Hubby to walk the dog with me, this morning. As always, his ideas of hound control and mine differ greatly. And as always, his are super effective. When I get back, I’m going to have to use them.

In the great field of canid-related expenses,

To cloud or not to cloud...

Any Apple fan worth their salt knows that Apple’s bringing the Cloud to the plebs, but what does it mean for writers like me?

Pros, cons and musings below the cut.

Pro: Convenience. A document or WIP [that’s Work In Progress for the unenlightened] can be accessed anywhere by any device, so long as you know the password.

Con: The potentiality for Fic Griefers. People who hack into your cloud just to mess with your work and cause
