Hi, folks! Welcome to the new writing journal / blog / whatever the heck this is! Kick off your shoes and stay for a while.
Some (well, okay, most) of you have probably arrived here from other venues rather than stumbling upon the site directly, but, this welcome post remains the same, whether you’re a refugee of my audience on LiveJournal, a fan of “Skin Horse” come to check out what one of the co-authors does when he’s not writing comic scripts, or simply a bewildered surfer who hit upon this site by random chance after making a really profound typographical error in the URL box. This is to be my home for writing on the web for, I hope, many years to come. A couple basic points, as much for my reference as for yours:
- The intention here is that this blog will serve as a storehouse and showcase for my work. This means, fortunately or unfortunately (depending on your preferences), I’m going to be keeping the place pretty devoid of fan-labor and other derived works. Inasmuch as I am a Professional Author, I think it behooves me to have at least one site that reflects this fact.
- On a similar note, this is not a personal blog. Chattiness will be at a minimum, and confined to these administrative posts. You will, alas, have to look elsewhere for details on what flavor oatmeal I had for breakfast. It’s not that I don’t want to tell you, because I am in love with the sound of my own virtual voice and will happily chatter away given half an opening. It’s just that this isn’t the place.
- Monthly content updates. I’m starting modest on this; I’ve got a daily comic strip going and other writing commitments on top of that. If this starts going swimmingly I may up the scheduled frequency, but for now, I’m going to start with a somewhat less ambitious goal to avoid the inevitable apology-posts that absolutely no one wants to see, especially the author.
I think that’s about it! Stay tuned for content just as soon as WordPress deigns to allow me to post some, and as I said, welcome! It’s good to be here.
