Sorry I don't keep this updated anymore, folks (if anybody's even still out there). It's chore enough getting out of bed the past few months. I'm a miserable sad fuck, so it's best to just be quiet and not go on at length in public about being a miserable sad fuck.

Random thought of the day: If they are going to play two movies on fucking loop on IFC, I'm glad they've picked Fight Club and Kill Bill.

Huh, forgot this thing existed for a bit.

I sold another story to Lightspeed! My third pro sale. Which means I am Officially Pro'd The Fuck Out and get to join SFWA and all those other Super-Speshul things. It took less than a year and I am blaming Clarion for all of my luck.

Hope everybody is getting on with the business of life in good fashion.

Burn the world down. All of it. It'll go up like a fucking tire fire.

Hope everyone is having a rad holiday. Sold a story last week to Strange Horizons, so that definitely made my Christmas adequate. One more pro sale and it's SFWA-town for me.

(Amusingly enough the Fantasy/Lightspeed story I sold back in August and this one are both going up in February. Leave it to me to accidentally flood the market.)

Friends, do me a favour. Click this, fast-forward to 4:35, and watch as reality fucking melts. Wow. Kubrick is wishing he had filmed that shot from some ethereal plane.

One week out of the workshop. Just made a sale to Fantasy Magazine. I can say without a shadow of a doubt that Clarion fucking works, folks.

Last day of Clarion. I am sad, of course, but it's the sadness that comes with any awesome time ending. It's pretty much the definition of bittersweet. You look in the dictionary next to the word and there's a picture of the 2011 class making completely incomprehensible in-jokes while weeping.

If you've got a couple of bucks and are feeling charitable, think about donating to the Clarion Write-A-Thon. It's how they pay for the next year's workshop and how they get some of the the scholarships that send schmucks like me to Writer Heaven for six weeks. I have learned a shitload and made some amazing friends. I'd really like to see this institution survive on into the grimdark future; lord knows we have little enough shiny and hopeful waiting out there.

Right, then. On to the last day.

Time for the Grand Guginol of nerddom, the con that all other US cons are pale, blubbery shadows of: San Diego Comic-Con. If I don't come back by tonight, assume I either ran away with the circus or a really hot Haruko cosplayer.

* 'Circus' = Adventure Time team, most probably.

I am not dead. I finished a story in eight hours on an hour and a half of sleep and am on to the next one and am still sort of recovering from the first, so plz to be forgiving my radio silence.

Addendum: you haven't really lived until you've heard John Scalzi cover 'Lullaby' by the Cure on a ukelele.

Anybody got any ideas for what could cause a colony collapse of undead underworld ghost bees that feed on soul pollen? Just out of curiosity.

I'm never going to stop having these fucking dreams until I give myself a lobotomy.
