Manuscripts Burn

The End of the Universe



About that.

In case you don't know me in real life (and if you don't, I have no idea why you're reading this, but thanks) I am off shortly to study the ontology of nations in central Asia. That's a metaphor. I'll let you figure out what it means. The upshot, though, is that I have no idea what my internet access will be for the next [period of time redacted.] Does not make for many happy bloggy days.

So, although there are still theoretically a few manuscripts left on my hard drive to burn, I have no idea how often or at what rate I could possibly get them out to you, my beloved reading public. So, we have a few options here.

a.) I could shut down the blog altogether and come back at the end of [period of time redacted.]

b.) I could throw up a burny manuscript at irregular and unpredictable intervals.

c.) I could retool the blog into more of a standard "post about what I ate for breakfast" kind of blog, and post when I get around to it.

I am loathe to use the nuclear option, if for no other reason than that I need this blog to follow other, far superior writing blogs. I'm also reluctant to start burning another manuscript. I feel like waiting is murder in the internet world. I follow a few webcomics now and then, and when they disappear for months at a time, even with a pre-announced hiatus, they make me just never want to check in ever again. I'm also a little bit against turning this into the average Me Around the Downtown With My Peeps blog that I see so often. Then again, nobody seems to much follow it as it is, so maybe a change of pace is called for.

So what do you, my non-existent fanbase, think?


  1. Can you pre-program a whole manuscript to burn MWF or whatever schedule? I know various famous bloggers (Andrew Sullivan, et al.) prepare entries well in advance so they spread out harmoniously.

  2. Famous bloggers...that's a good one! Like jumbo shrimp or something.
