I'll be honest, though, I absolutely know that I wouldn't be able to make time for a novel. I can barely make time for reading as it is. I'd be all over a web serial, though. Just point me in the right direction when you get it started up.

I'm around. I've largely been working on non-M:EM related writing projects, hence a good deal of the radio silence over here. Been good, though, and while I don't want to divert my attention until I get through this, I do have some M:EM thoughts in the pipeline.

On the subject of outside-M:EM writing, would anyone be interested in functioning as a test audience? Either for the novel I'm working on now or the major project my wife and I have been working on (intending to put forward as a web serial; we tried once before but ran up against "we really need to 100% finish before we start posting)? I feel like I can trust anyone here to give me honest opinions.

I would be willing to, but like Luna said, time is not something I have a ton of lately. For instance, I won't get anything more than a week off until July.

I'd like to help, Tevish, though you may have to wait a bit for feedback on a novel :D

I'm fine waiting -- the novel is still in the last chapters and I'd like to have it "in the can" before showing it off, even with the caveat that this is a first draft for impressions. The serial is less finished, but we feel that can be shown in "Acts" rather than as one start-to-finish production, even for gathering first impressions. I'm not 10% sure when I'll be dropping you PMs, but I will. Thank you!

Is this like a "Loading... Please wait..." scenario? Can you tell us when you're like 50% sure?

(I'm tired. This sounded funny in my head but I apologize in advance for any slight I may cause. I don't mean to offend.)

I'm glad that people are okay, even if things are a bit too meaty in the meatspace.
My own predicament isn't quite in the same, though my work schedule has been loopy as of late.
Most of my energy hasn't been going to writing, but rather playing video games.... which on the surface sounds a bit like 'oh, you poor thing' as vitriol oozes down the wall.

But the circumstances around that are a little squiffy (I... I honestly can't believe 'squiffy' had an autocomplete)
My games backlog has kinda hit critical mass recently. Games I've already shelled out my hard earned shekels for, and some have been sitting around for nearly a year, so I'm trying to burn through them to justify my investment. Looking at it from monetary terms, I think that shifts perspective slightly.

What ho, squiffy!

Bally Jerry pranged his kite right in the how's-your-father, Sally-blighter, Dickie-birdied, took a waspy, feathered back on his Sammy, flipped over on his Bettie Harper's and caught his can in the Bertie.

(I had to take the opportunity)

How's everyone doing?

I've had better years. Latest drama: I'm single-parenting this week due to the sudden death of an in-law. The sane and apparently healthy one, whom we'd been hoping we could spend some quality time with.

Then again, it looks like the company I work for might start operating in the black this year. I also discovered a forgotten story idea among a stack of old notes, that sounds like it could be fun to flesh out.

On the subject of outside-M:EM writing, would anyone be interested in functioning as a test audience?

I'd love to, if my grammar nitpickery hasn't put you off too badly. I'm also related to a literature critic and a professional editor, though no guarantees on their interest levels.

I should never have subscribed to the Humble Bundle RSS feed. Yes, they're all tempting from a value saved perspective, but I can't seem to keep a decent gaming rig up and running. Attempting Epistory with an Alphagrip was certainly interesting, though.

I just used this site to anagram my name and got a lot of good results. I had to share the best one, of course:

"Net Brain" is perhaps too close for comfort. "Inner Bat" sounds fun, too.

I tend to use Peter Klausler's program to generate anagrams, partly so I can control the word list.

Bronze Roar's pretty metal, but Fecal Knave Broth is still my favourite.

Mine is a tie between Covert Khan Fable, as if Raven tells a story that is secretly about one of the Khans of Tarkir, and Above French Talk, as if he refuses to talk about France or the French language.

I, on the other hand, am immensely curious. Did someone slap you with a head of broccoli? Did you work a broccoli field all day? Did they force you to eat it with ranch dressing?

For Covert Khan Fable, it's more likely that it's about Major ret-Kahn...

And, seeing as how I've written more Thorneau stories than anyone, clearly, I am not Above French Talk...

I can't seem to find good ones, except maybe

Nu, ye rum hoe!

Who's Nu, and why is she so passionate about liquor?
