⎇001JW Interviewing Leather Revisited: Forward

The story as it exists clearly has its fans (and its detractors, but that's as may be). However... it's *very* rough. Ragged. There are plenty of typos and bad choices. It needs editing at the very least before it could be published as either an eBook or as part of an anthology.

Inchworm… inchworm… measuring the post-lengths…

Does Sesame Street still play the Inchworm/“Two plus two are four” song? If not, do people still know how doubling works? In the last four days, I’ve written significant amounts of: A Myth about Scheduling Daemons (ironic as it is). Being the Steve (which is going very nicely). A teaser for a Patreon serial called The Age of… Continue reading Inchworm… inchworm… measuring the post-lengths…

Storytelling in a Hybrid Serial Model

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

Justice Wing: Greyfalcon

I posted this Concept Art of second tier Justice Wing hero Greyfalcon over at the Patreon (with explanation of her uniform because blah blah blah along with some background details not here). On Twitter, I made mention that Greyfalcon isn’t “Black Canary,” but is enough of a pastiche that I wanted to do the ‘fishnets’ visual… Continue reading Justice Wing: Greyfalcon

Let’s Gather Some Audience Information™!

Hey all! It's poll time! This is not "what Eric is working on next." Eric's writing a myth and editing a poem, then getting a datasheet out next. However, we've had a block of Banter Latte content come out over the course of Folio #1, and as we move into Folio #2 and beyond I… Continue reading Let’s Gather Some Audience Information™!

Patchwork Worlds: Structuring an inter-related anthology

An interesting comment came up, regarding one of my beta stories on my Patreon. It was a short story -- not, perhaps, the most common thing I write these days (though there's a myth partially completed which would beg to differ) -- and the reader didn't care for it. It's not that he thought it… Continue reading Patchwork Worlds: Structuring an inter-related anthology

Patreon: The Last Week of Folio #1

It's been a busy week over on the Patreon. I tried my best not to spam everyone with updates -- that way lies madness and people disliking you -- but it makes sense to catch people up as well as keep folks abreast of what's coming up next here on Banter Latte. Folio #1 is… Continue reading Patreon: The Last Week of Folio #1

Progress Report: “Diverged in a Wood”

The next Patreon short story -- "Diverged in a Wood" -- is proceeding apace and on pace. This wasn't a story I expected to be writing, at least not now, but then it got loud in my head -- louder than "Being the Steve," which honestly surprises me. It's a long short story but a… Continue reading Progress Report: “Diverged in a Wood”

Patreon Folio #1 Progress Report

So! It makes sense to keep everyone up to date with Folio #1! Both where everything's as expected and where we're course-correcting! Wordcount: 40,000 words minimum + Myth bonus. Currently: 52,500. "Cannon's" first beta went very long, which I'm personally fine with. I'm going to still fill out the rest of the Folio. Bystander Level:… Continue reading Patreon Folio #1 Progress Report
