I guess I have to accept that the crossposter is broken forever. Here's my post about Danny Rand's portrayal in The Defenders.

Cross-poster is still broken, unfortunately.

Cross-posting seems to be broken

My Wordpress blog doesn't seem to want to cross-post here any longer. Until I figure it out, I'll have to manually enter links.

Seven interesting things on the internet.

With luck I can fix crossposting. Not that I've had much luck lately.

State of the Self, Feb 2017

Let’s talk about where things stand in general with me.

1. Last night I posted fiction onto my Patreon. It’s the first scene of ONE MAN, the novel I’ve been working on, and I thought my patrons deserved a sneak peak. Just my way of saying “Thank you.”

Someone immediately cancelled their pledge.

Can’t please them all, I guess.

2. My gaming group has been playing MASKS, which is a genuinely great game about teenage superheroes. For the longest time, we couldn’t settle on a team name, so I’ve been throwing out joke suggestions (The Integriteens!)

The other players have latched onto one of my jokes as the name they actually want to adopt.

It starts with a hashtag.

3. I shipped my latest revision of ONE MAN to my agent last weekend, and I feel pretty good about it. She may have additional tweaks, but maybe not. If she does, I’m not sure how long it will take me to do them, because

4. I’m sick and getting sicker. Low-grade fever. Body aches. Exhaution.

And a cough that could shatter marble. At this point, I’m coughing so hard that my vision goes fuzzy and my extremities tingle. I honestly feel close to fainting. Which sucks.

Now that I’ve gotten older, it’s common for me to suffer a lingering cough after a cold, and I mean that it lingers for months. My wife hates it, because I cough big. BIG. She tells me to see a doctor, but they never do anything except prescribe cough suppressants and try to placebo me into thinking they’re super powerful. That never works and I’m sick of going. This time, though…

5. I’m not doing too much social media right now, because HACKING. It’s too hard to focus, which is why I’m doing Lemony Snicket and PI shows on Netflix.

6. My rent just went up.

7.Buy my books.

Folks have been very kind about my Patreon, so I thought I’d do something nice for my patrons. On Feb 1, I’m going to post the first scene from ONE MAN, my new novel which (with luck) will be published sometime next year.

It’s about 2.1K words and it’s not an entire chapter. It’s just to show folks what they are supporting.

If you’re not a patron, you can become one (and see what I’ve been working on these past two years) by pledging a dollar. After you see the new scene, you can always cancel your pledge. I hope you won’t, obviously, but if you do that’s on me.

Thanks, and take care of yourselves.
