Not looking good. But actually looking better than it’s going to look for the remainder of the year (and the first week or two in January) given holiday plans for work and family. I’d call it a vacation, but hell, I’ve BEEN on vacation for half the damn year at least so… call it be being a lazy ass. Yeah, that works too. But there WILL be a piece of short fiction done and ready for January, in addition to “In Deed”, which will also get started in January.

The odd entry right up there at the top, “In the Event of My Death”, is a story fragment of sorts. Actually it’s hard to describe what that is. It’s related to the anthology I’m planning on doing next year, although I’m not sure if it will actually be IN the anthology or not. All of the stories will be related in some way, and this meta-story is about that relationship. Makes no sense now, but it will later. I just wrote the fragment to nail the idea down and get it out of my head. You might see some action on it every once in a while.

    keep at it bud…we’re sorta patient *grabs beretta 9mm and taps foot* at least for a little while…:P

  2. DarkIcon, December 24, 2007:

    Well, we COULD look at it this way: I wrote more last week than I did in the entire months of June, July, August, September and October combined. [1) distract them with logic, 2) Find Kevlar]

  3. Loki, December 26, 2007:

    *grumbles* Fine…ya win…can put the Kevlar down now…:D

  4. Kragon, December 26, 2007:

    [walks into room] Whoa! What the hell is going on here?! We’re all civilized people here. Loki, just put the biretta down. And Icon…slowly put the Kevlar on the floor and slid it towards me. We don’t want anyone getting hurt here…

  5. Loki, December 26, 2007:

    Ummm….whats civilized? :D And asking me to put the Beretta down is asking to get shot. :P

  6. DarkIcon, December 26, 2007:

    “asking me to put the Beretta down is asking to get shot”


    I’m using that in a story somewhere.

  7. Loki, December 27, 2007:

    lmao….classic and cliche.

  8. Kragon, December 27, 2007:

    Well now, a bit touchy about the Beretta aren’t we? Well if it makes you feel better you may hold on to it. lol.

    But that is a really funny line. Yeah, you gotta use that in a story. Maybe in the Crusade. Sounds like something Jason might say.

  9. Loki, December 27, 2007:

    Me and Retta have a ummm…*pets the Beretta* unusual relationship. :P

  10. Kragon, December 27, 2007:

    *shudders* I…see. Ummmm, ok. I won’t disturb you two then… (walks to the other side of the room)

  11. Loki, December 27, 2007:

    Its okay…its nothing perverted….that would be just…..wrong…:D

    In the event of my death…I don’t think we ever saw that one.

  13. DarkIcon, June 30, 2009:

    I never finished “In The Event…”
    It’s actually related to “Court of the Abominatrix” and is essentially a letter written by someone who discovered a conspiracy and subsequently disappeared. I only got a few paragraphs in.
