I just posted an important, if entirely administrative – and honestly, absolutely obvious set of details about my writing here and elsewhere up on the Patreon, free for the reading. I'll embed a PDF here, but if there should be a revision on the Patreon version, the Patreon version is to be considered correct unless… Continue reading Administrative: An important administrative detail that needs to be explicit.
A new serial for a new phase of Banter Latte! This time, it's space! And tea.
School's well underway and we are back on track! Sorry for the momentary disturbance. And for those who dropped a tip in the hat -- thank you. It's well appreciated. One cool thing about doing flashbacks in these episodes? It's actually really freaking easy to work out the timestamps for them. Hooray for the metric… Continue reading Corbett-877 #6
As stated in the Labor Day post, this is one of the busiest two week periods we have in the business of academia. We've spent the summer prepping for students and faculty to return, but when they actually do return, things get amazingly crazy, amazingly fast. That's where we are now, for those playing along at home.… Continue reading Lovelace½ #13
So. It's Wednesday, and that means it's Lovelace 1/2. This is an exceptionally busy time for me, day job wise. I work at a school -- for the record, not Brooks-Carillon. In fact, my school and Brooks-Carillon aren't that much alike, beyond a superficial similarity common to many private schools. However, we're gearing up for the start of… Continue reading Lovelace½ #12
Hey hi, all! As a reminder, Interviewing Trey returns tomorrow at 9 am EDT, covering the phantom episode from last Friday. Then Lovelace 1/2 as we always expect on Wednesday, and then the next episode of Interviewing Trey on Friday. Got all that? Cool! But it's Monday right now, which means Corbett-877. One thing that's interesting about writing… Continue reading Corbett-877 #5
There is something about Lovelace 1/2 that inspires me to be late in posting. It may be because I tend to prep these episodes during hectic times of the week, which means its easier to miss something. I do my Corbett-877 prep over the weekends, so there's always plenty of time. Likewise, I have the full week… Continue reading Lovelace½ #11
And we're back with a whole new week, and with it a whole new episode of Corbett-877! So far, you guys seem to like the new story -- which I suppose is now a month old, so maybe 'new story' isn't quite accurate. Man, time goes quickly. I've had a couple of folks ask if the Myths… Continue reading Corbett-877 #4
Wednesday means Lovelace 1/2, and this is no exception. I'm not sure what else to say about that. Things are definitely moving. Where they go... well. For the record, there may -- may -- be a moment of wish fulfillment in this episode. I hope you enjoy Lovelace 1/2 #11 Andi expected the school day to be stranger… Continue reading Lovelace½ #10
Monday comes again, and brings with it episode three of Corbett-877. Rather than repeat the silly confusion I created with Lovelace 1/2, I'll say that the 'canonical' pronunciation is Corbett Eight-Seventy-Seven, though if privately you want to pronounce it 'Eight Seven Seven' or 'Eight Hundred and Seventy-Seven' or something else... well, why would I mind? It's your mind, man.… Continue reading Corbett-877 #3
There were server problems overnight, so final prep on this post was about a half-hour late. I'm not sure anyone cared (or even noticed) but me, but there we are anyway. Nine parts into Lovelace 1/2. It's kind of wild to me how quickly this is going -- at least in one sense. Having a novel… Continue reading Lovelace½ #9
Week two of Corbett-877. Last week went pretty well for a first post. I'm hoping today builds on that a little. We'll start to get more into the theme today -- you may guess this isn't exactly a two fisted adventure novel we've started. It is, as was implied, a Star Trek pastiche, though that's really meant to… Continue reading Corbett-877 #2
