First and foremost, thank you; you are my hypothetical readers, and I appreciate all of you.
The Hillside Commons recently crossed the 250 followers milestone and Convenient Incidents came to its conclusion yesterday, so I thought I would make a thank you/update post to let y’all know what’s going down on the other side of the screen. And now I’m doing it. And the wind continues to blow.
After putting out Under the Hood: The Imprisonment of Jonathan Knox however long ago that was, I wrote up a pair of novellas-
I’m not sure if I’ve formally mentioned this yet, but all of my writing takes place within a fictional reality called Existence. Existence is comprised of four Astral Planes, one of which is called The Void. Inside The Void float the infinite universes, and I think y’all know what a universe is.
-which are unconnected to the point that they take place in different Astral Planes. I took one of these novellas to the third draft, the other to the first, but ultimately decided not to publish either of them. It wasn’t an issue of quality or insecurity, I just wrote them more to leap over certain hurdles in my life I was having trouble getting past by myself without banging my knee and toppling over and eating shit in the process, and I felt like making them public wasn’t the move. So the good news: I got over the hurdles without eating shit! The bad news: about 2 months’ worth of fresh content is now sealed in the vault, blind to the light of day. Que sera sera.
That’s not to say I’m sitting around with a thumb in my ass, though. There is a new project in the works; I have no concept of a timeline for this project, but I’m pretty sure it’s going to be a novel and I’m thinking it’s going to take place in the same universe as Untitled Bigfoot Project, Universe W-428. I also have a bunch of stuff planned for Universe W-2222 (that’s Flowers and Under the Hood), but the W-2222 books are the books I make in between books, you catch my drift? You smell what I’m stepping in, here? You toke what I’m blowin’, bucc?
Either way, that’s what happening. I also wanted to give a huge thank you [read: THANK YOU!!!] to the hypothetical reader who bought a copy of Untitled Bigfoot Project on Amazon however long ago that was, January maybe? Whoever you are, I’m pretty sure you’re the first one from the blog to buy one of my books, which is absolutely a big deal. I hope you’re diggin’ it, and I’d love it if you wrote me a review. I’ve heard those help and I’ll take all the help I can get, as I am 25 and making these books is the only thing I know how to do in life. To everyone else: the floodgates are officially open, you won’t have to be the first! I’m only going to make more books, so you might as well hop on now 😉
Thanks again, hypothetical readers. I appreciate y’all, and I’ll see you again at 500. From this day on, we move forever forward. Be well Commons~
