In Which My Technology Punches Me In The Crotch Region

WELL HELLO EVERYONE.

I HAVE RETURNED FROM THE WILDS OF THE TECHPOCALYPSE.

Here’s what happened:

I got the one-two punch of:

a) my website stopped loading for me (still for you, just not for me)

b) my computer started to, in slow-motion, shit the bed — it would slow down and freeze and be wildly inconsistent. It was like watching someone choke on a hoagie through frosted glass.

SUPER ANNOYING.

(Less annoying but considerably weirder — Sam Sykes and I did that slasher thing last week, and it went cuckoo viral, and now I think we were made the Lord Regents of Twitter or something, so that happened.)

So, it took me many moons to get both of these tech problems sorted in good order, but sorted they are. I have a new computer (basically the same computer, an iMac that’s just four years newer) and turns out my web host was blocking my IP ha ha ha what fun.

We will once again try to return to some semblance of normalcy.

In other news:

I hit 100,000 words on the current manuscript (Exeunt), and I did that in two months (!), and I think this book still has another 100,000 words to go (?!), so wish me a big screaming bushel of fucking luck. Also the book probably sucks, but that’s why Jesus invented “second drafts.”

OH AND HEY LOOK WHAT’S OUT TODAY:

It’s got dinosaurs! And fascism! And fascist dinosaurs! And a guy who will shoot arrows into fascist dinosaurs!

It’s out where comics are sold.

Including Comixology.

I hope you check it out.

Tomorrow, keep your grapes peeled for a couple guest posts, and then next week we will ideally resume normal service at These Here Bloggerypages.

In the meantime, here have a pretty picture of a dragonfly I took.
