Greetings and Salutations!

Welcome to the longest-running* yet least-read** blog on the internet! Here you'll find me writing about all the things that I write about, which strikes me, just now, as somewhat recursive. In any case, enjoy :)

My brainz. It works funny.

Lying in bed last night, staring at the ceiling, it came to me what my story-in-progress "The Rashomon Gate" "was really about. Voila, just like that, I had the ending and a big chunk of the middle fall into my lap.

Total non-spoiler tease, it's sort of a Purloined Letter of extreme proportions. Poe for the save!

Tom Stoppard says than he he came up to writing the very end of his mostest awesomest and potentially confusing play, "The Real Inspector Hound", he had no idea of the identity of the of the mysterious dead body he had placed (literarilly) under the sofa. Then it came to him, it's ****, and *bing*, the entire play made sense (sorta - it's a weird play) after all.
