State of the blog, 18 August 2015

A quick state of the blog:

Untitled and Unfocused

As you may have noticed, I’ve started a podcast with ’s Rebecca Triplett, tentatively titled ‘Untitled and Unfocused’. We’ve both been burned a bit by previous podcasts falling apart, so we are keeping things relatively easy, but you should be able to expect a new cast every Sunday evening / Monday morning. Some day it might even be on iTunes.


Another thing you may have noticed (you observant reader you) has been a complete lack of stories posted since Armadillocon. This is because I’ve been polishing up the short story (Lawbinder) that I workshopped there and have moved on to a novel set in the same world. I’m almost at the point where I’ll be able to start submitting Lawbinder to magazines and online things, and I’ll try to keep a rejection count on here as soon as I start to get them in.

I’ll still post stories when the creative urge over takes me, but most of my focus is going to be getting a rough draft of the novel, tentatively titled “Psychomachina”. Don’t worry, dear readers, I’ll try to post at least on blog a week, even if it’s just a quick recap of things that have happened.

Extreme Light Sensitivity 

Turns out bright lights give me tension headaches and bad nausea. Seeing a doctor about it, but there’s not much they can do. Hopefully this is the last time I’ll post about it though, expect for complaining on twitter.


I’ll be heading to Washington state soon for a few days next month, and taking a trip to Minnesota for Nerdcon: Stories the month after that. Expect full travel recaps on this here blogmachine.

Anyway, that’s it for me. Hope you folks are having fun and living life. Or doing something creative. Or, just doing you.
