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 few months back, after literally years of being away from writing on a regular basis, I decided to begin the relaunch of my online life. Like many people in today's day and age, I decided to use Patreon as a means of organizing my activities and hopefully giving people value for their money --… Continue reading Storytelling in a Hybrid Serial Model
As we stated in the teaser yesterday, today we begin the bridging 'meta' series between The Home Front -- the era of Mystery Men up through the second World War and its immediate aftermath (specifically capping around 1950, if this post is any judge, though "My White Plume" is a letter written in 1952, so take these… Continue reading 023SG: The Formation
If you happen to look at the Project Page for Mythic Heroes/023SG, you'll notice there's an imprint between The Home Front and The Age of Heroic Intent. That imprint is called Project Corrigendum, and it covers the period of time between the second world war and all its mystery men and wartime supers and the… Continue reading Teaser: Project Corrigendum – The Formation
At very long last, the fourth installment of "Homecoming." Interesting things when you're working on a story like this -- especially when there's a long break the way there was with "Homecoming." You evolve as a writer. The world you're writing in evolves and changes. Your priorities change. Your understanding changes. But when you return… Continue reading The Home Front: Homecoming Part Four
Previously in The Home Front and "Homecoming #1-4:" Decades before the Age of Heroic Intent, the first costumed heroes and super heroes began to appear. The first of these Mystery Men -- and also also the last -- was Knight City's Adrian Wainwright, AKA the Golden Swashbuckler, who began his career in 1923 and retired in… Continue reading The Home Front: Homecoming: For Those Who Came In Late
I'll mention, first off, that this was supposed to be Corbett-877. Liam's keeping his mouth shut, so instead... here you go! The very first 023SG post -- a whole new world. Which is a lie in at least two ways. The first way is simple. All the Mythic Heroes posts I did before? "The Home Front?" "Diamond in… Continue reading 023SG: The Goldfish: Rise of the Icthyomancer #1
Banter Latte news! The first new Banter Latte serial begins today on Patreon for all Patrons and arrives tomorrow morning right here, free as a grouper. Why the first new Banter Latte serial? Because Corbett-877 told me to shut up and leave it alone, and I owed one last Banter Latte post not counting the Myth. So you… Continue reading “023SG: Goldfish: Rise of the Icthyomancer” begins!
A bit late, but here's the third part of "Homecoming," here in The Home Front. This particular file got corrupted, so I didn't have any choice but to rewrite about half of it, which put things off a bit. And here we are! Of course, it occurs to me that Greg Fishbone, my former editor,… Continue reading The Home Front: Homecoming Part Three
I'm about halfway through part eleven of "Interviewing Leather." It seemed wise not to push to get it done and possibly compromise what may be one of the more engaging bits (or not be, depending on how well it goes, of course). On the other hand, it certainly can go up on Thursday without any… Continue reading The Home Front: Homecoming Part Two
Leather, sadly, will have to wait until Thursday, or even to next week. There was just no writing time...well, at all since last Thursday. None. Not a jot. Which isn't normal for me, but it's start of school. And you know... start of school. So, we move on to the last of the Home Front… Continue reading The Home Front: Homecoming Part One
One of my favorite story drivers, bar none, is The Big Change. The Big Change is exactly what it sounds like. Something happens to change the world, change society, change the way things have always been done, and then everyone has to deal with it. Theftworld and Trigger Man both deal with the same Big… Continue reading The Home Front: Diamond in the Rough
