Below is a sneak peek of this content!The Patreon Exclusive Notes and Worldbuilding returns, bringing us to Greenhorn #4. Spoilers for that, “Diverged in a Wood,” “Forebears,” and some other stuff so be warned.
It's June, and on June the First I offered to let Patrons who pledged at the Intrepid Reporter level (otherwise known as $10 or more) ask me any questions they liked, with an eye to printing the answers today. Well! It's today, and the answers are up! Free for all to read (you had to… Continue reading June Questions and Answers on the Patreon for free!
A roundup of May's entries on Banter Latte, a roadmap for June's entries, some Patreon news, and such and sundry!
The news on site upgrades and new content!
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…
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
Even as Folio #1’s PDFs get finalized (relatively exacting work) and the Myth gets transcribed onto pressed clay tablets then digitized via OCR (perhaps somewhat inefficient) it makes sense to actually put out Folio #2’s content list for people before we make it to the end of June so they can make informed choices! In… Continue reading Announcing Folio #2: Generations and Originals!
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
As hoped for as of yesterday, the first beta of "Diverged in a Wood" is now up on Patreon. I hope people like it. As mentioned before, "Diverged" is the story of Lora Layton, Leather's older sister... and what happens after the Amplifier magazine article "Interviewing Leather" is published and she realizes that her sister has some… Continue reading Interviewing Leather: Diverged in a Wood (Patreon)
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”
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
